My first semester of college is OVER! It was probably one of the most stressful things I have had to do so far in my life. Thankfully I ended the semester with all A's and I'm keeping that 4.0 GPA! Next semester I think will be a little better since I know what to expect, but we will see.
Sales for November were AMAZING! For me not to have listed anything, ran any sales, or even worked on eBay, it was great. I had my highest sales month ever, topping out at over $2,000. I'm telling y'all, if you have kids, make them do eBay! They will not regret it! I have met so many people in college who are either working 24/7 and letting their grades suffer, or they're poor as all get out and can't afford a dinner at McDonald's! I have not had to worry about an income and my parents haven't had to loan me a dime (they have of course loaned me a lot of their time by shipping out my eBay sales while I'm away, and I definitely couldn't do this without them!) It has been one of the best things that I could have ever asked for!
Here's some of my highest sales since my last post
It sold!!! FINALLY! $165 +shipping from this $2 find. I had to drop the price quite a lot, but it's okay. That's still a HUGE profit.
I had one lady come into my store and make offers on 13 of my items. They were all old stock items too, so of course when I saw she was wanted to clear out some of the old stuff for some pretty decent prices, I accepted! She ended up spending over $100! I wish I had more customers like her!
My mom went thrifting without me back in November and came home with this beauty! It's a two piece Victoria's Secret set that was NEW WITH TAGS!!! She spent a whole $3! I had it listed for $100 and free shipping, but I accepted an offer of $70 pretty quick.
Do NOT pass on Free People! I had so many sales from this brand last month and they were BIG sales! I picked up this jacket at a yard sale a LONG time ago and as soon as I listed it, it sold for $68! I also picked up the green shirt for $3 and it sold immediately for $55!
Nintendo games are my bread and butter. I can't find them fast enough! I bought a lot of them for $40 and these three alone sold for over $50 each. Definitely a BOLO!
I bought this shirt for myself about 6 months ago and stuck it in my closet to wear when it got colder. I didn't think anything about it because it didn't have a tag. I pulled it out last month to wear and lo and behold it had a little shiny logo on the bottom. It was Lululemon and I didn't even know it! It really makes me wonder about how many pieces I've passed on because it didn't have a tag and I didn't see the logo. It sold for $47 overnight!
This Banana Republic blazer, suit jacket, coat, whatever you call it, sold for $50! It came from the bins!!
I LOVE Eileen Fisher. This sweater was listed for all of 30 minutes. Sold for $55.95!
My goal for the 6 weeks that I'm off is to get the store built back up. I'm down to almost 700 items and I would really love to get that number up to 1,000 before the next semester. I also want to do some inventorying and make sure everything I have in my eBay room is listed and if it's been listed for a long period of time, I'm getting rid of it. I'm hoping to freshen up the shop a little and help keep those sales coming in!
I'm going to try to post every day or every other day if I can and let y'all see exactly what I'm selling! If you don't follow me on Instagram, be sure you go and do that! I post on there very regularly, even while I'm at school! My username is @theteenthrifter.
If you have any questions or comments please post them below! Let me know how you've been doing over the past month! I have truly missed you all!!
