Sum it Up Sunday 11/30/14

I sincerely hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and many things to be thankful for. We were traveling, and I delayed my handling time in my eBay store. I only sold 15 things this week for a total of $305. That's an average of $20/item. I attribute the low sales to not having listed at all in a week, and for the delayed handling time.

I didn't have any huge sales, just small steady ones. I had my entire store 10% off this week as well.

I took a best offer of $28 on these Longaberger plates. I think I paid $4.

I took a best offer of $19.99 on this vintage over shoulder dangle brooch. 
I paid $2 at Best Thrift

I sold this vintage 1995 complete Jumanji board game for $31
Paid $2 at Family Thrift - I took a small risk with this game because I wasn't sure it was complete, but I figured I could make my money back parting the pieces out if not. Luckily it was complete and sold within a week of being listed.

These glasses sold for $15. I paid less than $2 at DAV
I mention them because they had 12+ watchers and had been listed for a couple months, and because last week I sold these:

Bought at the same day at the DAV for less than $2 sold for $15.
Not a huge profit. I will probably steer clear of glasses in the future unless they are really cool like my first great eBay find.

I have a listing promo this week, and seeing as I thrifted on black friday I have a bunch of cool items to list! Let me know how your week was in the comments! 


  1. Congrats on your sales! I've had good luck with Longaberger, too. The baskets are usually too much to make a profit on at the thrift stores, but they usually don't charge any more for the pottery than they do for any other brand of dinnerware.

  2. Love the pin! I love the 80s - reminds me of the popular epaulets back then.
