Sales Update 4/15-4/26

Hey everyone! I'm back with yet another sales update!

I'm so so sorry I'm not staying on schedule with my blogging. Only 2 more weeks til school is out, so hopefully then I can get more regular with my posting. 

Everyone lately has been talking about how slow their sales have been this month. Mine have been BOOMING! I have had at least one sale almost every day! I had 4 sales just yesterday! 

I think the increased sales over the last few days have been because... I HIT 500 LISTINGS! WOO HOO! I have been listing like crazy trying to hit that number and I have made it! (Sort of). I'm back down to 495 items now since I've sold so much. I will be taking advantage of this 1,000 free fixed price listing promo that ends today as soon as I get my English 102 essay finished. Hopefully I can get back over 500 again! 

Here's what sold! 
Total sales since my last post: 25
Total amount (before fees): $289.37 

3 Tubes of 350 Covergirl Makeup - $7.95 each F/S

Awful story about this makeup... I sold a tube of 340 makeup two weeks ago, went into my eBay room looking for it, and I couldn't find that number. I was COMPLETELY out! EBay was showing I had 14 left in stock. WHATTT??!?  I had to cancel that transaction and refund immediately. Then afterwards I went into each makeup listing and revised the quantity I had in stock because they were all out of whack by LARGE quantities! I also found 3 kinds of makeup that weren't even listed! So that is all fixed now thankfully! 

Woo hoo for microwave plates! I love love love these! They are super easy to list and ship! This one sold for $13.33 +shipping. I paid probably $1-$2. 

I sold a pair of Ann Taylor jeans that have been listed FOR-EVER! They sold for $15 +shipping. I probably paid around $3. 

I had this Dressbarn cardigan listed since last summer. I paid $0.25 for it, and it sold finally for a best offer of $15.99 +shipping. 

I LOVE finding stamps! They're just so cute! I am a very crafty person, as are most people in my family, so I figured if this didn't sell it would get some use anyways! I bought 3 stamps for $2, and this one sold for $8 +F/S. 

I bought this Nordicware pan in Indiana for $2 in Indiana, it sold for $15 +Shipping. 

This Monopoly themed neck tie came from the Goodwill Outlet, so I didn't pay much. It sold for $15 +shipping. 

My wonderful aunt picked me up a lot of Littlest Petshop items last week for $10! If you aren't knowledgeable on these items, be sure and look them up on eBay right now! Some of these items go for a ton! I used to play with these when I was little, but sadly, all my pets got donated. :( They would be worth a pretty penny now! This Talent Show Stage sold for $6 +shipping. I had two of these, and they both sold within a day. The other one I am still waiting for payment. A UPI case is open for that one since they have not paid in 2 days. 

I ALWAYS pick up Jansport backpacks if the price is right! This pack sold for $25 +shipping to Israel! Anyone ever shipped there before?! I paid $4.  

This is the last of the belt buckles I bought last summer. I paid $1.33 for this one. It sold for $14.95 +Shipping. 

My sister found this build a bear workshop outfit at the Goodwill Outlet, it sold for $10 +shipping. The clothes tend to sell better than the bears. 

Here's another backpack! I paid $3 for this one, it sold for $20 +shipping. 

You all know I always buy unique shower curtain hooks! These sold for $10 +shipping. 

Finally, I sold this Lauren Ralph Lauren sweater vest for $19.95 +shipping. I paid $5 at the Goodwill. 

That's all for me guys! I hope you are all having a GREAT week like I am! I'll be back soon with another post! 
Thanks for reading! 


  1. Wonderful sales! And super congrats on hitting 500 items. I still love seeing the variety of items you sell. Well done!

    1. Thank you! I love selling anything and everything I can make money on! I feel like I'll have more sales that way. Plus, I just can't pass up profit at a yardsale! Thanks for reading!

  2. Looks like you're doing really well! Congratulations!

  3. That monopoly tie is fantastic. Good for you to hit 500! I'm just at 300 but I'm only listing 15 items per week while ~7 are selling. Slowly increasing it. I think 500 is my target for keeping it all moving.

    1. I thought the tie was AH-MAZING! LOL If only my boyfriend would have worn it..

      300 is a GREAT milestone! I was stuck at around 450 FOREVER, but I started listing around 15 items or so a day until I hit my goal! I can't seem to stay over 500 now though! I keep getting sales as soon as I it 500 again! I think that listing daily helps keep traffic in your store (The more you list, the more you sell!) Keep up the good work! I'm sure you'll hit your goal soon!

  4. How do you ship your microwave plates? I tried once and it shattered. Boo.

    1. I will try and do a video on that soon ;)

      Here's what I do!

      I wrap the plate in newspaper, then lots, and I mean LOTS, of bubble wrap. Then, I wrap cardboard around the plate. I place the plate in a large priority mail box, and place newspaper, plastic bags, or packing peanuts in the empty space in the large box. I have never had one to break!
      Hope that helps!
