In other news. Someone please find a way to stop me from buying mugs, books and ornaments. Part of my 2015 business goal is to a. increase my average selling price to $40 and b. shop more often and buy less. So why do I keep buying these items that will probably sell for less than $20 and fill up my overflowing shelves??? I get the book obsession because I've always loved book personally but I don't get the mugs and ornaments. For personal use I only have a few mugs. Four are a set and then I have a couple that were gifts. Never am I tempted to buy mugs for myself. So if you've found a way to stop buying something over and over. Please do share. What is your personal 'must buy' item?

Best Sale This Week And A BOLO
My best sale this week was a Mens Filson Flannel Shirt. I'd heard of this brand quite a while back and knew to pick it up if I saw it but I'd never seen it before. A few months ago I found a new thrift shop. The prices are higher but the quality of the clothing is much higher. Designer labels. So when I saw this Filson flannel shirt I grabbed it. It was in perfect condition except for a pretty large stain inside the neckline which you wouldn't be able to see it while wearing it. I tried to get it out but it wouldn't budge. So I listed it with full disclosure of this flaw. I started high at $79.99 and just yesterday put it on sale for 10% off. It had a few watchers and sold that day for $67.49 plus shipping. I think I paid about $5 for it. New on the Filson website identical looking shirts start at $98. So my BOLO for you is ANYTHING Filson. They are an old company that sells clothing and accessories for the active outdoor life. Hunting, fishing, etc. They sell a few women's pieces but the majority of their stock is men's. Their merchandise is quality and very cool looking but I'm definitely not their target customer. Check out the completeds on ebay.
