Derek and Moms Goodwill Haul!

I absolutely LOVE that Derek drives by Goodwill every single day.. It definitely comes in handy! He's stopped 4 or 5 times now, and has always found something to sell on eBay! This is GREAT for me since I'm so tied down with school, and don't have the time to get out and go thrifting! 
Here's what all he's picked up this week and last.


He picked up these poker chips for $3. They're bid up to $30.99 plus shipping right now! 2 hours left! 

These two Avon french clown perfume bottles. They sell for about $16. If they don't sell, we have a friend at church that has a HUGE collection of perfume bottles that I'm sure would LOVE these! 



He paid $0.50 for this relish dish. It's listed at around $30 +free shipping.


He found this vintage leather illustrated Bible. There's not one like it on eBay, so I'm curious how this one will do. It's from 1952.


He also picked up two microwave plates for $1 each, a HUGE metal poker chip case for $8 (selling for $50+ on eBay!), and 4 tall glasses that go for $40 EACH! 
He's getting good at finding stuff to sell on eBay! 

My mom went to the Goodwill in Cookeville, TN yesterday and came home with a bag full of goodies. She spent $32 and I should make $200 at the least.. Probably more. We'll just have to see how the auctions go. 

Here's what she picked up.


This Vervaco latch hook kit for $2. They sell anywhere from $35-$200 each. This one is BRAND NEW! There's not a similar one on eBay.

This pony bead banner kit $2. One other is listed for $40, but it's not this pattern. Fingers crossed! 


I always pick up Gold Collection cross stitch kits. This one was $6, but it sells for around $25-$30.


This kit was also $6 but it sells for $100! HUGE score there! 


Here's another one of the Vervaco latch hook kits. It's brand new as well. Another $50-$200! Cha-CHING!


I always have her pick up shower curtain hooks. These were $1 a set. Easy $10-$20 each! 




That's all for this post! I can't wait til I can get back out and go yardsaling again! Hopefully this weekend... 

Thanks for reading everyone!

  1. Wow. I need to get into the cross-stitch and hook rug kit game. I've seen those things all the time and never even thought once about picking them.

    In regards to the Avon clown bottles, I also love having an outlet for something if it doesn't sell. I feel much safer picking up items knowing they could always make a good gift for a friend.

    Great blog, by the way.

    1. I've sold TONS of the cross stitch kits for a GREAT profit! They're definitely a constant pickup for me! And the Avon bottles, they started out being a pickup for our friend anyways, but then I looked them up on eBay! LOL!

      Thanks for commenting Peter!!

  2. Wow! Your Mom and boyfriend did a great job of shopping! I love the Cookeville Goodwill! I stop there on my way to visit my daughter in Virginia. Now my daughter is at TN Tech, so maybe I will get to go more! Good luck on your sales!

    1. They did!! The one in Cookeville is SUPER nice! Their prices are going up though.. Hopefully that won't hurt us resellers too much!
      I'm going to transfer to TN Tech next year!! I think it's SUCH a great college!

      Thanks for commenting!!!

  3. Hi, Great finds! Are those latch hook kits or needlepoint? The finished product on the packages looks more like needlepoint. I'm envious of the scores!

    1. Some are needlepoint and 2 of them are latch hook pillow kits.

      Thanks for asking!

  4. Nice haul, Nandry. Love cross stitch and embroidery kits! Keep an eye out for the Bucilla Christmas stocking kits. Some of those go for over $100.
