This exact sweater was in my haul, but I'll be keeping it for myself! ;)

Weekend Sales 11/20-11/22/15

Hey everyone!
 This weekend was somewhat busy with sales, but today, nothing. EBay has been dead all day long! No low ball offers or anything! Strange... 

Here's what sold: 

7 items! Not bad, but not great either. 
Hopefully things pick up soon! 

Sorry for such a short post! I'm super busy with classes and other things at home, that it's hard sometimes to find the time to write! 

Thanks for reading!

Sales Update 11/19/15

Hey everyone!! I'm so excited to tell y'all that I finally got a promo!! Woohoo! I have 1,000 free listings until the 29th of November. I've already used almost 300 of them and my goal is to use atleast 500 before it expires. 
And of course, when I relisted my 280+ unsold items, sales came pouring in! 

I had 5 sales yesterday totaling... *drum roll*, $330!! One of the sales was a consignment sale, but hey, my numbers look great! 
Here's what sold: 

These GAP pants came from the Goodwill Outlet. I had them listed for $19.95, but took a best offer. They cost me $4.99 to ship! 

This sweater came from the free haul. I had it listed for $24.95, but once again, took a best offer! 

This build a bear had been listed awhile and I was glad to see it go! Sold for full price! (I have to give my little sister part of the profit because it was her find.)

I've not had any overseas international sales in a while! This fossil purse is going to Brazil! It came from the Outlet as well. 

Finally, my big consignment sale. A friend was setting up in a yardsale with me and pulled these out. She asked me what to price them with and I told her to look them up on eBay! Sure enough the price was so great that she asked me to list them. I'm thrilled that they sold so fast! (I had them listed less than 24/hours!) My 20% commission was well worth it! She was so excited when I called and told her they sold for full price! 

That's all for me! I hope your alls sales are picking up as well! (I've already had one this morning! Hoping for more throughout the day!)

Sales Update 11/16-11/18/15

Hey everyone! I hope the past few days have been better for you than they were for me! I've only had THREE sales and to top it all off, they all sold TODAY. Sheesh! Where are my buyers?! I've been listing non-stop, so who knows why I'm not selling!

Anyways, here's the three things I've sold. One I'm still waiting for payment on.

This Patagonia piece was picked up on my last trip to the outlet! I had it listed for $49.99, but I was so desperate for a sale that I took the offer of $40. Not a bad sale! I wish I had about 10 of these a day! 

Why is it always the small things that take people forever to pay for? I will never know. This build a bear set came from the outlet a long time ago. I had it listed for $10, but once again, I was desperate for sales! Please hurry and pay people! I promise I'll have it shipped first thing in the morning if you do!! 

This Columbia shirt was picked up at a thrift store where the guy gave me all the stuff for free! Not bad on a free buy! 

Finally, I was going through some pictures on my phone and I found some photos of the shoe restoration day we had at my grandmas! My aunt, her daughter, and my grandma have been buying lots of boots to resell locally, so one evening when they were cleaning up their haul, I took a couple pair of Danskos to see if they could be revived. Here's the before pic. 

I had a pair listed that was in this shape. Yikes. I know. Bad choice. But! After my aunt got ahold of them and applied conditioner (I think?) they looked like this: 

So as soon as I got them listed, they sold immediately! I've learned my lesson there. Never skimp out on a little work. It pays off! 

Thanks for reading everyone! I hope things are better over your way!

Weekend Sales 11/13-11/15/15

Hey everyone! 

Today my goal is to write two papers for my college classes, to research all of my Goodwill Outlet scores, and to list 5 items! 

I only had 5 sales over the weekend, but they were pretty decent, so I thought I'd share! These 5 pieces totaled up to $117.43. That's not bad, but it's not where I want to be! 

This cardigan was picked up by my mom at a local thrift. She paid $2 for a huge bag of stuff, so this piece didn't cost too much! I had it listed for $24.95, but I accepted the offer of $19.99. It'll stick in a padded flat rate envelope and only cost me $5.35 to ship! 

This velvet Christmas dress was mine when I was little and my sisters! I had it listed for $20 and I accept this offer of $15. 

This is the very last of the glass sets I'm going to have to ship out! This one was listed for $29.95 and I took the best offer of $27.50 because of the incredibly high shipping! This set weighs about 10 pounds when packaged properly. The strange thing about this sale is that the buyer has already left me feedback! I would NEVER do that on a highly breakable item! But oh well! 

I think these Christmas overalls came from a fill a bag for $1 sale. Not sure, but I know I didn't pay much for them! 

These Sofft boots came from the Goodwill Outlet the last time we went. They sold super fast and for a great price! They weighed around a pound, so they probably cost me no more than $1! 

I also sold the 2 folding bleacher seats on my Facebook yardsale for $50! The rest of my outlet haul will be pure profit now! Woohoo! 

That's all for my sales this weekend, but now let's talk about a return. 
I mailed a shirt out over a month ago and just heard from the buyer last night, 33 days after delivery saying I sent the wrong shirt. He couldn't figure out how to send me a picture of the shirt he did receive, but when he described it, sure enough it was one of my similar shirts. I went through my inventory and found the shirt I was supposed to have sent him and I'm shipping it out this morning. He was vey nice about the return and didn't open a case or make me pay for return shipping on the other shirt! I wish all buyers were like this guy! 

That's all for my weekend! I hope y'all have a great Monday!

Goodwill Outlet Haul 11/14/15

Hey everyone! I just got back from a day at the Outlet! Today we left home at about 6:30 am, made it to the outlet at 9, and had the car loaded down by 12:30 pm! I got around 70 pounds of stuff for $58! 

To resell, I bought 20 pounds of clothes, 2 Bumbo seats, 3 pairs of shoes and 2 folding bleacher chairs and the rest of the load was either for my sister, my mom, or it was Christmas decorations for Derek. 

I ended up with 34 pieces of clothes!
Some of the brands include: J. Crew, Ann Taylor, Armani, Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren and so much more! The three pairs of shoes were Born and Clarks. I'm going to resell the bumbo seats and the fold in chairs on my Facebook yardsale site for around $20-$25 each! So hopefully that will be a quick flip to get all my money back! 

I've not really done much research on anything yet, but I'm sure I'll profit a nice amount from all I found! 

I hope y'all have had a GREAT Saturday! 
Thanks for reading!!

Weekend Sales 11/7-11/8

Hey everyone! I'm back again with a quick sales update! I've sold 7 items (so far)! Saturday and Sunday still aren't over so hopefully some more will come in tonight! Woohoo! 

I've got almost 400 items listed with 30 in the "unsolds" section. I am SO mad at eBay right now that I can't stand it. I didn't get this recent promotion for 10,000 free a month until February. It really would've motivated and helped me out! I have about 100+ items waiting to be listed and since my college semester ends in about 4 weeks, I'll be able to work hard and hopefully get them up! So the free listings definitely would've helped cut the costs. 

Anyways! Here are my weekend numbers! 
Items sold - 7
Amount before fees - $153.90

That's a GREAT weekend for me! 

These Dansko clogs came from the Goodwill Outlet! They sold for $24.95+shipping. 

This antique Tiara wine set sold for $29.50 +shipping. 

Here's another pair of Danskos from the Outlet! Both pairs sold at the same time! This pair for $25+shipping. I always pick these up! 

This Talbots Petites button up sold for a best offer of $22.50 +shipping. I was glad to see it go! I only paid $0.50 at a yardsale for it! 

These shower curtain hooks sold for $9.95 +shipping. They're a nice item to pick up cheap if you have the time to sit on them a little while! 

I took a best offer of $7 +shipping on these scrapbook pages. They came from the outlet and probably cost $0.05 or less! 

These Skechers work boots sold for $35 +shipping while I was at church! I was so glad they sold! I got them for Derek, but he doesn't like the laces so to eBay they went! I paid $3 for them at a yard sale! 

I hope y'all have had a good weekend of sales and I hope that you got the promotion, even though I didn't :( 
Have a great week everyone!
