Today there was a fight that broke out over the bins. It was ridiculous. Today was only my third trip there, and I had never been there when they were rolling bins out. It was like piranhas stripping a carcass clean. But you better believe when the next round came out I was right there in the middle of the chaos (the thrifting chaos not the fighting of course).
I had nine sales this week totally $196. I had three $40 range sales, one being these wooden plates. There are no seems, so they are made from a single piece of wood. They were hand made in Haiti in probably the 60's.
Paid $12. Sold $45 + shipping to a buyer in L.A.
I also sold this Harry Potter Quidditch Stick for a $20 profit:
Also this week:
- The Post Office called me back and assured my they are taking care of the package pick up problem. We finally have a new full time postal carrier and she is GREAT. I've told her about my business and she has not forgotten my packages once.
- I got my TRS Status; Yay discounts!
- I sold a few pieces of fabric, so I should have listed it much sooner. If you have fabric waiting to be listed, let this be your motivation!!
- Five of my sales were mugs or glasses. Just when I was thinking about slowing down on buying mugs. One was this set of gorgeous Knobler Japan Mugs:
Paid $1. Sold $39.99. They took three months to sell.
Hope that you had a great week! I'd love to hear about any cool sales you had, or recent thrifting experiences.
