I had a good week last week. My weekend sales were in the toilet but I haven’t listed anything new for several days so maybe that was why. I really need to list list list this week. I have so many awesome money making items to sell (like the Garfield tea kettle) but I have a hard time finding the uninterrupted time I need to get them live on eBay. Here’s how I did:
1-50 of the Original Goosebumps Series
Paid $15 Sold for $75 Best Offer (less shipping and fees) Total Profit = $38.24
This is 12 books short of a complete set so I was very happy with $75.
If you have the patience, time, and storage space (haha – honestly I don’t have any of those three things) collecting children’s books to sell on eBay can be profitable with very low cost. I’ve been picking up Goosebump books for about 6 months and when I had the complete set up to 50 I felt it was a good enough lot to sell. I use the Evernote App on my iphone and keep updated lists of what books I need for what series to help keep me from buying 10 copies of the same book in a series. You’d be surprised how quickly you can gather a great lot to resell for 25 cents per book. I have almost 3 complete sets of Magic Tree House. You can see here that they do great on eBay!
Small Pooh Panda Costume Plush
Paid $1 Sold for $14.99 (less shipping/fees) Total Profit: $9.43
I’m not a plush expert but I’m getting a better feel for what items will sell although this one sold very fast and I was kind of surprised.
Lucky Women’s Jeans
Paid $4 Sold for $20 Best Offer (less shipping and fees) Total Profit = $7.82
I would not have taken this offer but when I got the jeans home and began taking photos and measurements I realized that they had been hemmed from their original length and so i was happy to get rid of them for a profit. Had I known they were hemmed I would not have purchased them at Goodwill. I try not to buy things that will be complicated to sell or that might be a red flag for problem buyers who don’t read descriptions carefully etc.
Missoni Shear Sweater Blouse NWT
Paid $3.99 Sold for $34.99 (less shipping and fees) Total Profit = $23.51
I sure have had good luck with Missoni “for Goodwill” ha ha ha
DC Women’s Skateboard Shoes
Paid $3 Sold for $29.99 (less shipping and fees) Total Profit = $13.97
I also sold three more boxes of Yo Gabba Gabba Valentines for $20.97 ($11.61 profit)
That’s it for me. So how were your sales? :)
