Sales Update 12/2-12/27

Hey everyone! I hope you all have had a very merry Christmas!

I'm sorry I've been gone almost the whole month without a post, December is a super busy month for me. (Not on eBay sadly...) Sales this month have been HORRIBLE! The worst probably so far! I've had $300 in sales, one non-paying buyer, and one return request which I'm dealing with now.. I'm hoping January picks up the pace and gets some after-holiday shoppers in my store! I have around 379 items listed currently, and I'm hoping to get the rest of my stash listed BEFORE January 1st. Now I know this won't happen, but it's good to have some hopes. I need to use my 150 free listings before they run out as well. I think I have 117 left.  So listing is my number one priority these next few days.  

Total number of sales: 18
 Here's a few of the highlights.

I picked up this NFL-opoly game back in the summer for $2 and it sold for $29.95 +free shipping.

Derek picked up this vintage Apollo workout kit at the Goodwill for $5. It FINALLY sold for $50 +shipping

We also sold our last pair of Firefighter boots for a best offer of $35 +shipping.

Here's another one of the $3 shirts I picked up at a consignment store a while back. It sold for $19.95 +shipping.


That's all for this post! I'm going to try and go package up some sales that I had yesterday and I'll be back next week with another BOLO post! If you'd like to see my other sales, be sure and check out my store HERE. We renamed it last night to "Bluegrass Bargains". ~Thanks mom! Let me know what you think about the new name, and let me know if the store needs any improvements!
Thanks for reading!

A-Z BOLO List Part 2

Hey everyone! I'm back with Part TWO of my BOLO list! This post is letters F-J from my book. Enjoy! 

Far Side Items: These include coffee mugs, calendars, or anything else you can find by Gary Larson. I've sold quite a few of these for $30+! Check out completed listings HERE
Fiestaware: I've sold quite a few pieces of this too! The rarer colors and stranger pieces sell for more than the more common pieces. You can expect at least $10 a piece for the common colors and up into $50-$100+ for others! Check out completed listings HERE!
Fire King: Always always ALWAYS look for this brand. Most pieces are worth in the $10 range, but some can go for HUNDREDS! If you find one of the advertisement Fire King coffee mugs, don't pass it up! It could be worth a fortune! The jadeite pieces are also popular right now! Check out completed listings HERE!
Flatware: We have all seen, and probably passed on that set of spoons, knives, or forks, at the yard sale. ALWAYS look the pattern name up and see if you get any hits on eBay. If it's cheap enough, I wouldn't even worry about looking them up. You can sell the flatware in sets of dinner forks, spoons, knives etc. or you can sell it as a set. People are always looking for replacement pieces. Check out the completed listings HERE

Griswold Cast Iron: This one is a hit or miss, but if it's cheap enough, always pick up any piece you find. You can  make a decent profit. If you ever find a #14 skillet, be sure and mail it directly to me and don't even think about looking it up first ;) Some of those go for hundreds! Check it out HERE! 
Globes: Here's another item we've all seen. These are an easy $20-$50 depending upon condition. Click HERE to see the completed listings! 

Handheld Games: Always keep an eye out for theses. Portable handheld games like Tetris or Poker are very popular and can be worth a pretty penny! Check it out HERE!
Hot Rollers:  These can be found at almost every single garage sale. If you can get them cheap enough, and all the pins and rollers are included they may be worth picking up! Keep an eye out for Clairol and Remington rollers. Completed Listings.
Halloween Costumes: Buy these all year round and start listing them about a month before Halloween. You can pick these up for $1-$3 through out the year and make a killing in October!
Hidden Mickey Duffy Bears: I had never known about these until recently. They are stuffed bears that have the Mickey Mouse face shape. They can be worth $50+. I've yet to find one, but I'll keep looking! Check them out HERE!

NONE I have absolutely no items in this section of my book! If you have any, please post them below and they'll be added to this list! The same goes for other letters. All items will be added to the post!

Jansport Backpacks: Preferably the vintage leather bottomed bags. I sold one for $20-$30 (I can't remember) I only paid $2 for it! All other Jansport backpacks are good as well, because there is a lifetime warranty available on them! If you fill out a form and mail them to Jansport they will mail you a NEW backpack! -Thanks Aunt Tammy!

That's all for this post everyone! Thanks SO much for reading! I look forward to reading your comments and adding your own BOLO's to our list!! 

I'll be back soon!

Sales Update 11/12-12/1

Hey everyone! I'm so sorry I've been missing in action the past little while. Thanksgiving had me super busy and with finals week quickly approaching I've been swamped! I thought I would check in with a few sales I've had since I disappeared. 

Sales since last post: 
43 Sales
$477.83 before fees

Here's a few of the highlights!

I picked up this Calligrapher's bible for $1 and it sold for $15.95 +free shipping. 

This Earth Therapeutics body wrap was given to me and it sold for $34.95 +shipping! 
 I picked up four textbooks for $0.50 each. This one sold for $45 +shipping! A rule for textbooks. Make sure they are no more than 5 years old or most always they are obsolete and not worth too much.

Here's another costume sale! I picked this Power Rangers costume for $3 at Goodwill. It sold for $19.95 +shipping.

These Fossil boots were picked up by my grandma for $10. They sold at auction for $45 +shipping. 

I ran a TON of $2.99 auctions the past few weeks since I had a promotion. I sold quite a few items that I was glad to finally get rid of. I don't do $0.99 auctions, because it's just not worth it. After shipping and fees, you end up losing money. So I always start out at $2.99 + shipping so that my fees are covered and I still make a little.

Stay tuned for my F-J BOLO List Post!!

Thanks for reading everyone!!
