Sales Update 4/27-5/4

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a very prosperous week on eBay! My sales have slowed just a little, but that's expected towards the beginning of each new month. I seem to sell more at the end of the month, is it just my luck or does it happen to you too? 
I've not been listing as much lately either because life is currently keeping me away from wanting to work on eBay. I've been planting my garden, finishing up my college courses (last final is Thursday!), and then to top it all off my boyfriend is graduating college Friday and moving 2 1/2 hours away to work for Nissan within the next week, so we're soon to be apartment shopping for him, looking for furniture and all that exciting stuff that goes along with that. So yeah, there's lots of stuff going on this week! I'm going to try to hit up an auction Saturday though. Hopefully they'll have lots of box lots for me to scoop up for CHEAP!! 

Anyways! Here's some numbers for last week! 

Current number of items listed: 512
Number of sales since last post: 21
Sales amount before any fees: $358.83 (3 Unpaid Items -$60)

Here's some of the highlights! 

My Psychology book from last semester! I love that I can resell these books after paying a fortune for them, so atleast I can get a little money back. It sold for $45 +free shipping. 

I picked up this Ralph Lauren bag at a yardsale for $1. It sold for a best offer of $15 +shipping. This was last summer when I bought it, and as you can see from the picture, I wasn't as good with photographing and editing.. 

I love love LOVE Vera Bradley! It sells quick for me! This purse was $3 at the Goodwill. It sold for $15 +shipping. 

If you all watched my YouTube video, I talked about this flatware I bought for $2. It turned out not to be bakelite, but it still sold for $20 +shipping to Canada. 

Scrabble tiles are definitely a BOLO! This set was missing two pieces, but I picked it up for $1 and sold it for a best offer of $8.25 +shipping. 


I'm still selling neck ties from my Goodwill Outlet trip a while back! This one sold for $12 +shipping. 

Here's my BEST sale from the week! This Little Earth license plate purse. I picked it up at the Goodwill without looking it up just because I thought it was SUPER cute and I just loved it. Well lo and behold after looking it up on eBay it made it's way into my to be listed pile! This baby cost me $3 and sold for $69.95! I was THRILLED! It went to Alaska which I thought was strange since It's an Indiana purse.. But oh well! I've already received raving positive feedback as well! 

Finally ALWAYS pick up Paddington bears. This is the 2nd one I've sold, and like the first one, it sold super fast. I paid $0.50 for it at a thrift store, and it sold for $19.95 +shipping within a few days. Since the new movie came out, these are HOT sellers! 

That's it for me guys! I hope you all are selling like crazy! I just heard a Cha-Ching on my phone while typing this post! I'm going to do a little ACT studying, then I'm going to get to listing!

Have a great rest of the week! Thanks for reading! 


  1. Sounds like you're doing great! I really need to push myself to get up over 500 listings! Love reading your updates! ~~Pam

  2. Thanks Pam! Things are really picking up since I hit 500! Thanks for reading!

  3. I have 4 scrabble boxes at my house right now. I always list them in bulk. I think I'll wait till I get one more and then go from there.

    Do you know if it matters if they are new vs old scrabble?

    1. Nope! Old and new scrabble tiles both sell for about the same. The only ones worth more are the mini tiles and the deluxe, colored, tiled.
