Sorry it’s been so long since the last post. Summertime = crazy busy with my boys. We’ve had VBS, sports camp, four weeks of swimming lessons, soccer, countless park dates and play dates, visits with the grandparents, and we also made our annual trek to the Drive In earlier this week. Lotsa fun. I’ve also been investing a lot of time in eBay in a part-challenge-part-experiment that will last all of August. I’ll share more at the end of the month when I’m done.
In the meantime – here are a few questions that have been bouncing around in my head the last few weeks!
Question #1: Does anyone have some fairly lightweight boxes that they use that are similar to Priority Mail boxes like this?
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to ship something, grabbed an Amazon-like box and weighed the item and the weight was somewhere around a pound. So I grab a Priority Mail box instead (might as well use the free box!) and I weigh the package and it’s right around 13 oz. Those darned 3 oz can make a big difference! I hate having to pay Priority Mail prices for something I could technically ship via First Class if only I had the right, lightweight box.
Question #2: For those of you who use mannequins, can I pretty please have your recommendations for the best kind(s) to purchase?
I’ve been doing this eBay thing for several years now and I still haven’t bought a mannequin! I’ve found a good, weekly source for clothing purchases, so I’ve been listing more and more of them. It’s past time for me to make the switch to a mannequin. (*Most* of the clothing that I am selling is still women’s.)
Question #3: Who is this guy?
Anybody recognize him? I can’t figure out if he is a character (and thus possibly worth listing) or a nameless generic plush (in which case I will probably sell him at our yard sale).
It’s been years since I have had a yard sale, and I had sworn off ever having one again, but my cul-de-sac is having one all on the same day, so I figured why not. I was worried at first about not having enough stuff to make it worth it. Ha. Now I’m worried about not having enough table space. Hopefully we make a few $$, and even more, hopefully we get RID of a bunch of stuff!
Many thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give to the questions above. Hope summer is treating you all well!
