My other awesome sale this week was a shocker. I went to Salvation Army the day after Christmas to shop their 50% off Christmas sale. I like to sell vintage and collectable holiday items. I purchased this Cartoon Network Top Cat ornament for 50 cents. I'm not hip on cartoons and didn't recognize the character but since it was Cartoon Network I figured it was worth at least $10. I always check completeds before I list something because you just never know. I've read plenty of sellers say after something sold for a lot more than they thought..."I wish I had checked completeds before I listed it". My advice is always check completeds even for something you think could never be worth much. So I checked completeds and I couldn't believe the only one I saw had sold for $100+ dollars. This was before Christmas so I figured I might not get as much after Christmas for a Christmas ornament but it was obviously collectable. A plastic ornament! When I went to list mine there weren't any listed so that was good. I don't use auctions often but I decided to auction it off. I started it at $49 knowing that I wanted at least that. It sold for $50. Only two bids. Oh well. I was still thrilled. Definitely a BOLO.
Now for my product recommendation. I'm not getting compensated in any way for this review. I already own one of these and love it. It is a Skil Chargeable Cardboard Cutter. I use it all of the time for cutting cardboard either to resize a box or to cut some cardboard to use for protection on breakable items. It is so much easier than using a box cutter. I've had mine for a couple of years now and it still works as well as ever. I couldn't do without it now. The other thing I like about it is that I don't often have a clear work surface to cut boxes so to find a spot to lay down a piece of cardboard and cut it with a box cutter is hard. With this SKIL I hold the piece of cardboard in front of me and zip I'm done. I got mine on Amazon.
Hope you have great sales this week.
