After I got the taxes out of the way I started listing, listing and more listing hoping to get the sales moving again and it worked! Yesterday I had a $133 day which I haven't seen in a while. I've got a lot of shipping to do today including a typewriter. My favorite thing to ship…not.
So on to some of my best recent sales.
The aforementioned typewriter. I think I paid $8 for this one. Usually vintage typewriters go for more so I was willing to pay that. This one turned out not to be such a popular brand/model. But still a decent sale. Isn't it cute? It sold for $47.49 plus shipping.
I purchased this Liz jacket off the Halloween rack at the GW after Halloween for 75% off. I guess they thought it looked costumey. Not sure what one would 'be' wearing this jacket. Any ideas…post um in the comments :) It was $3 or $4 and sold for 34.95 with fs
And another curler related sale. I bought these perm rods for $3 and they sold for $47.49 plus shipping.
There were over 100 in different sizes in this lot. Definitely pick these up if you see them for a good price. I'd known of this BOLO for a long time but this was the first time I found a large lot. Do people still get perms? I had many a perm in my early years. I can recall that smell instantly. I'm glad I left that phase behind never to return. So those were my best recent sales. I'm hoping the uptick continues! The weather is finally warming up in Wisconsin so garage sale season is just around the corner. Hoping to find some interesting items this summer. Oh. I wanted to mention. Yesterday I was at Goodwill and saw my first ever book scanner working the books. He had a cart with a bunch of books in it and was scanning each one. He was a young guy. What I noticed the most is that he looked so furtive. He kept glancing up like he was going to be stopped. It looked stressful. If I ever take up book scanning I'm going to remember to try not to look that way. Heck I think if he hadn't been so nervous he would have looked like he worked there and was doing something official. His presence did keep me away from the books though. I felt like he'd probably caught all the sellable ones. Good strategy book guy! Have a great sellin' week.
