UPDATE: I'd post a picture but it's dark outside. My Toyota minivan with the seats folded down is OVERFLOWING with stuff from the consignment sale. Sometimes I really question my own sanity?!

I’m not selling very much… probably because I’m not listing very much but I did have two great sales in the past day:
Appeared to be brand new Keen H2 Venice Waterproof Sandals
Paid $3 at Goodwill sold 2 days after listing for $50
Appeared to be (I checked everything I knew to check) in excellent barely used like new condition Kodak EasyShare Sport Camera in box
Paid $10 at Goodwill sold 2 days after listing for $50
Why yes, I’ll take $100 for $13 any day! ;)

If it makes you feel better... there is so much I want to blog about and share but there just is not enough hours, minutes, or seconds in my day.
I'm currently practicing being a single mother to three children under the age of 7 while my husband is out of town 4 days every week for anesthesia clinicals.
I have 500+ items to tag for the consignment sale in three weeks that I am also the recall specialist for (so added stress, yay).
My garage is literally exploding with eBay and consignment inventory.
Oh, and I've not yet mentioned that I opened an antique booth in one of our very popular local antique malls.
I wish I had more energy and more hours.
So those are my excuses, but I did want to share that I had my first international sale and it was super-de-duper easy. I don't know why I was afraid?!
I sold a pair of Tommy Hilfiger capris to Australia for $19.99 in a flat rate padded envelope so the buyer also paid $16.95 for shipping. I ship through eBay and it was absolutely as simple as mailing any other package. Now it's sitting on my front porch waiting for my carrier to pick up in the morning.
I currently am only offering international sales to Australia, UK, and Canada. I'll get my feet wet before I branch out.
If you haven't opened up your sales, you should at least give it a try, I'm so glad I did.
