The clothes above are those that have have already sold – for over $100.
Another item that falls into the “nickel and diming” category for me is Build A Bear clothing. I have bought a few lots at yard sales in the past, and have separated them out to sell in various smaller lots. A couple days before Christmas someone listed a lot of BABW clothes on a kids FB group for $25. From what I could see in the photos there appeared to be a decent variety, and it looked to be in good condition. But, it was located a-l-l the way across town. I normally wouldn’t have been motivated to drive all that way to buy it, but both of my boys actually have Build a Bear plush, and it is a tradition that each one gets a new outfit for Christmas. And just the day before I had realized that I was an outfit short. I decided it would be worth it to trek over and buy the lot, choose an outfit to give as a Christmas gift, maybe set aside a few more good ones for future year(s), and then sell the rest to make my money back. When I went to pick up the bag of clothes I was pleasantly surprised. The bag was MUCH bigger than I expected, and very full. I looked through a few to make sure they were in good condition, gave them a sniff to make sure they didn’t smell like cigarette smoke, then stuck the $25 under the mat and took my treasures home.
Photographing and listing them didn’t take long. I ended up listing around 30 lots of clothing, in addition to those I kept to gift to my boys. It really will be like nickel and diming – no individual lot will bring in much money, but as the sales trickle in the nickels and dimes will *eventually* end up netting me a couple hundred dollars or so. Plus, they are so darn easy to list/store/ship. Sometimes (IMO) just having an easy, brainless day of listing is worth it.
