I skipped last week’s FFF because I didn’t feel like I had many sales worth mentioning (just a bunch of clothes, which are reliable sellers, but not what I find to be most fun).
Here are a few of my favorite sales from the last week:
These pants have been hanging around for months waiting to be listed. They are NWT Old Navy. My hesitation to list them was that they appear to have a maternity panel waist, but nowhere on the tags are they listed as maternity pants. So, I finally listed them explaining just that, and whaddyaknow, they sold in five days.
|Old Navy Linen Panel Waist Pants
Paid: $3? @ ys, Sold: $24.95 (in 5 days)
I will usually pick up sheet sets at yard sales (or 50% off day at consignment sales!) if they are new in the package and $5 or less. While they aren’t always fast sellers, every set I’ve picked up has eventually sold for a decent profit.
|Tommy Hilfiger Surf Board Sheet Set
Paid: $5? @ consignment sale, Best Offer Accepted: $35 (listed since May 2014)
I bought this at a rummage-type-sale just after Easter last year. I had just sold some used Easter Thomas trains so I knew it would be a sure-seller . . . eventually. Usually after 6 months or so I’ll add “Best Offer” to my listings, but in this case I didn’t because I was confident it would sell at full price before Easter rolled around again.
|Thomas Easter Train Lot
Paid: $5 @ rummage sale, Sold: $39.95 (listed since April 2014)
I really like buying these Disney books, and I’ve sold several lots, but they are s-l-o-w to sell for a price that I’m happy with. I only pick them up now if they’re still in like-new condition and only cost around a quarter.
|24 Wonderful World of Disney Book Lot
Paid: ? @ various places, Sold: $44.95 (listed since Feb 2014)
I’ve also had three Bonanza sales recently (a lot for me within a week’s time). The one below is my favorite, because it’s adorable. I picked it up for $1.50 a year or two ago after Valentine’s Day, thinking I would give it to one of my boys the following year. Then I came to my senses, and realized they already have way more stuffed animals than they know what do do with, and why should I add to that madness?
|Valentine’s Day Dog Plush
Paid: $1.50 @ Walgreens, Sold: $19.30 (within a couple weeks of listing)
