750 actually turned into 1503

I actually ended up dropping off 1503 items at the JBF consignment sale.

Yeah.

I'm totally crazy.

Buuuut...

It paid off.

BIG. TIME.

Like, biggest check they've ever written, big time.

Oh, and I sold 92% of my items!

I promise I'll TRY to hurry up and post with a recap of how absolutely supremely awesome I did at this sale as soon as I can.

I have just discovered your blog. So intriguing! Yes, please tell all about your consignment sale and what you did to be so successful!

and please tell me how to find a consignment sale that will take a lot. The most any will take around here is 150 items and I had my friend sign up to take another 150 of my items....

That is great! I ended up with 1,065 for my sale and sold just 52%. My highest check to date, but had hoped for a higher percentage. Regardless, I learned about what items I should focus on etc. Congrats, you did phenomenal!

I've been thinking about you and wondering how you did! I just finished a consignment sale this weekend but never count the number of items I drop off even though it's a LOT. I am just too lazy to count! And I don't pick up what I don't sell, either. I figure if it didn't sell during the half price sale, then no one wants it, ha ha. I look forward to your Ebay posts again!

Rock on !!!! My second sale is in two weeks. I think of you and your successes while tagging. Thanks for the inspiration.

this was my first sale as well...i sold about 33% at one location and 50% at another...i was happy with the check but not happy with how much i have to store. evidentally i overpriced...so your "secrets" and a breakdown would be super helpful!

Kim said...

Woot. Is the JBF sale the one that you have to put your own stuff out?

Excited to hear your breakdown. I've done 2 sales..no where near your #'s( I did about 500 items)..but I'm getting higher each sale. As always..THANKS so much for your original post on YSM.

Kim - Yes JBF you put your own stuff out and I'm BLESSED with a great husband because I'm always working the sale during drop off as the Recall Specialist so my husband does it all for me?!
