Sales Update 12/28-1/6 2015!!!

Hey everyone! I'm back with a quick sales update. The new year has been bringing customers in from everywhere! Items I've had listed around a year now are selling, and the newer items are too! I've been noticing a dramatic jump in sales every time I list 5-10 items, so I'm trying to keep that up! 

If I can get *most* of my high dollar items listed today and tomorrow, I'm going to go to my new favorite Goodwill Thursday! This Goodwill does not have very many knick knacks and household goods like I'm used to selling, but they do have clothes. LOTS of AMAZING brands and styles. Most Goodwills I go to, the clothes are EXTREMELY picked over. When I went to this one last Saturday I found cashmere pieces, Ralph Lauren, and even a $200 sports coat! I don't know if I came on a good day or what! I'm hoping it's just because resellers don't shop there! I'm wanting to get more into clothes instead of just selling the articles me and my family don't want anymore. I feel like there's a lot of money to be made in that category, but there is a lot of competition. Selling in clothes also requires A TON of research. I'm working on it, slowly but surely! 

Anyways! Sales!! They are picking up GREATLY! I LOVE January. It seems to be my all time best month every year. I'm hoping for a $1,000 month! We will see! 

I've had 22 sales since my last post. 
Total sale amount (less any shipping costs): $319.50

Here's a few of my sales! 


I picked up this pillow case a while back. I paid $0.99 for it at the Goodwill and it sold for $10 +shipping. Pillowcases are EASY money. They ship light and are easy to store!



I picked up this Lenox ornament a few months ago for $1, it sat and sat, then last night I put the link on my Twitter, and lo and behold, IT SOLD! $15 +shipping! 


I picked this Bible up in March at the Goodwill Outlet, sold for $29.95 +Free shipping.


Me and Derek went "halfers" on this one, we paid $5 at Goodwill and it sold for $39.95 + free shipping. This is a 2XL. The larger sizes seem to do very well for me. 


I picked this Perfection game up back in the summer and just listed it last week. It sold within minutes for $19.95 +shipping. Definitely a BOLO! 


Here's another item I picked up months ago and just now listed! I picked this Pampered Chef oval baker up for $1 at Goodwill and it sold within a day for $19.95 +shipping.

Thanks for reading everyone! I hope you're having a very successful New Year!!

  1. I sold Perfection earlier this summer too. I think for the same price. But it sat for a a few months. I remember looking it up last year? Maybe 2 years ago..at that time it was going for about $30 plus shipping. There are cycles to everything. But it's definitely still worth picking up!

  3. I also enjoy selling pillowcases. One of those things that usually having the winning combination of being inexpensive to purchase + easy to store + easy to ship.

    I picked up three or four Perfection games at yard sales over the summer. They sat listed for several months, and then all sold within a week or so of each other in November, in the $40 range.
