I was particularly happy about the wood pelican sale. Here is why. As I've said before I'm trying to learn to buy higher value items. I realize that that means maybe spending more per item as well. I purchased this pelican this week. He was marked $3. Now $3 for one item to me is a little high. I like to spend less than $2. So I waffled a little. Even though I could tell it was well made and the sticker on the bottom indicated it was vintage. I still waffled. It's not something I've sold before so that comfort level wasn't there. Finally I had a little talk with myself. Self, you can definitely sell this item for at least $3 and make your money back so buy it! So I did :) It sold within a few days. Now I just have to do that every time.
This week I'm going to be traveling to visit family and have a chance to visit some thrift stores that I haven't been to for about a year. I can't wait. The prices are much better and I'm pretty sure there aren't as many pickers around.
How were your sales this week? Did you hit some good garage or estate sales this weekend?
