I really love church sales.
Sure, they have a whole bunch of junk at them but MOST of the time I find treasures mixed in with the junk. And the prices usually can't be beat. That was the case yesterday when I scored a giant haul of children's clothing to resell at the semi annual consignment sale in the fall and spring.
I paid $45 for 96 pieces of clothing.
All brand name. No Walmart crap... I never buy that for resale btw. I'd say at least a third of what I bought was like new Gymboree. I got two Columbia winter coats for $1?!
Great great stuff!
If I were to sell each item for $3 (Columbia coat? Yeah right, more like $20) that would be almost $300! After cost and the consignment fee that would still be a profit of around $150. Yes please! And of course my profit will be greater than that because many of the items will be priced for more than $3 and I'd say 95% of it will be priced at at least $3.
I will say, that I usually don't find this nice of clothing AND so much of it at church sales... But you never know if you don't go!
Iphone pics are just click and go, no fancy editing, hope ya don't mind. :)
Sorting the "gold" with a soccer player hiding in the backrgound, lol.
I will never get tired of filling my van with treasures.
