Sales Update 7/8-7/20

Hey everyone! So incredibly sorry that I missed posting an update last week! Things around my house are super busy as we are preparing for the 127 sale, canning our garden veggies, and getting ready for school to start back. I'm here now though to let you know that sales are still kind of slow! I think they'll pick up soon when school officially starts back, but for now, they're just OK. 

I'm starting to get prepared for the 4th quarter since it'll be here before you know it! Last year, my July sales were the highest all year... Strange I know! I'm hoping this year though, I can embrace the 4th quarter and make more money than I've made all year! Wishful thinking ;) 

Here's what sold: 
Total number of sales: 18
Total amount before fees: $306.81
Awaiting payment for 3 items totaling $45.00

I picked up this womens Eddie Bauer sweater at a yard sale for $1 it sold for $24.95 +shipping. It has a CRAZY print! I figured it'd sell pretty quickly, because as we all know, ugly sells! 

Here's another microwave plate! I consistently sell these. I actually sold another one this morning! I promise I will upload a video of how I package these babies up soon! This one sold for $16 +shipping. 

Here's another consistent seller! Shower curtain hooks! This set sold for $12.50 +shipping. I've not found any of these in a while.. 

I picked up a lot of Leap Frog Tag reader items at the Goodwill for $5 a few weeks ago. I put this lot of stuff on it's own and I'm selling the pen and USB cables separately. This lot sold for $12.95 +shipping. The pen's listed for $22.50. Hope it sells soon! 

These Pampered Chef dishes sold for $24.95 +shipping to California! I hope they arrive safely! I bubble wrapped the time out of them! I paid $1 at a yardsale for both pieces. 

These copper cookie cutters were picked up by a friend for me to resell. They sold for $15 +shipping very quickly!

I LOVE finding perfume to resell. It's easy to store and the market for it on eBay isn't too crowded because it can be intimidating to ship. This bottle sold for $27.50 +F/S. I paid $3 at the Goodwill and shipping probably cost me around $5-$6. 

This Pokemon game is a definite BOLO! I picked it up for a $1 at one of my favorite thrift shops. It sold super fast for $24.95 +shipping. 

Finally, here's my biggest sale for the week! This set of Lauren Ralph Lauren pillowcases sold for a best offer of $50 +shipping. I paid $4 for them at the Goodwill! 

I hope you all are having a great week and making tons of sales on eBay! 
Thanks for reading everyone!

Sales Update 7/1-7/7

Hey everyone! I'm back with my first sales update for July! So far this first week has been GREAT! Sales have been coming in at a pretty steady rate. I also received a 1,500 free fixed price listing promo valid from today through Saturday! I'm going to get the last of my to-be-listed pile listed this week! Yay! 

I didn't get to do any thrifting or yardsaling this past weekend because it was the 4th of July and Derek was off work. So instead of working, I spent some time with him and my family. I think some days you really just need a break away from all the shopping, listing, and shipping!  

Here's the numbers for this week: 
Total number of sales: 15
Amount before fees: $327.35

Pretty good week! I hope the sales keep coming in! 

I love finding old costume jewelry to look through. I paid $4 for this lot, I kept a few pieces for myself, but the rest sold for $15 +shipping. 

I always pick up Springbok puzzles if they're $0.50-$1. This one sold for $14.95 +shipping. 

These Littlest Petshop pieces were picked up at a bunch of different yardsales. They sold for $35 +shipping. The buyer already left me positive feedback before I even shipped the lot! 

I picked up this Gold Collection stocking a long time ago, I had it listed at $119, but lowered it to $65, so I accepted a best offer of $50 +shipping. 

I picked up this Woolrich cardigan for $1 at a yard sale. It sold for $34.95 +shipping. 

I sold these Justin boots for my aunt. They sold for a best offer of $65 +F/S.

I picked these kids Keen sandals up at a yardsale for $3. They sold for a best offer of $20 +shipping! 

That's it for me this week! I've got to get back to listing! I hope you're having a great week too!

Sales Update 6/24-6/30 and End of Month Tally

Hey everyone I'm back with a quick sales update from this past week and, since it's the end of the month, a complete monthly sales tally. 

This past week has been SLOW. I have listed like crazy and still have had almost no sales at all. I did get to do some thrifting yesterday and I scored some pretty good items, but I've yet to find another home-run. 

I've sold 9 items since my last post totaling around $82.89 before shipping and fees. That number is down ALOT since last week. Most of my sales this week have been under $10. 

Here's the two highest items sold: 

These Levi's Too Super Low jeans sold for $9.95 + shipping. These came from my ThredUp order, so they probably cost me around $0.40.

I picked up these Clarks in Indiana for $2. They sold for a best offer of $20 +shipping. 

All my other sales were really low priced items like makeup and neck ties. Nothing too great this week. 

June End of Month Sales:
Total number of sales: 47 items
Total amount sold before fees with shipping: $1065.75
Shipping Costs: -$256.27
EBay and Paypal fees: -$135.87
Costs: -$200.30
Refunds: -$49.15
Store Subscription: -$15.95
Final Profit: +$408.18

Not a very good month! Oh well! I'm hoping that the 4th quarter makes things pick back up and brings in even more cash flow for me. Last year, July was my best month! Hoping it's as great this year too! Thanks for reading everyone! I hope your sales aren't in the toilet like mine! 
Have a great rest of the day!
