I had some small sales despite the vacation mode. Here are some highlights over the past two weeks:
This nativity was missing Joseph. I listed it as "you choose one"
One of the wise men sold for $7.95
I paid $1 for this shell planter at a yard sale earlier this fall.
It sold for $49.99
There were no other OLIVIA clocks listed. This one sold for a best offer of $29
The cat ticks back and forth with the seconds. Very cute.
The second of The Office mugs sold for $14.95, this one featuring Ed Helms
I paid $.25 for this true vintage 1970's polyester shirt on
Black Friday at a church thrift store in PA.
In other news, we have a new family member:
This is Jazz (she was already named Jasmine, but we are calling her Jazz).
She's an 11 month old German Shepherd. I'm reading Cesar Millan's books Cesar's Way and Be the Pack Leader, I bought both for "a penny". We're her third (and forever) family. Loki the cat is NOT pleased, but hopefully he will adjust quickly.
While out walking her tonight I came across a big trash pile in front of a newly empty house. I noticed a Play Station 2 on top, and three bikes that seemed to only need air in the tires. I told my husband, and he went back with the truck, and got quite the load:
Two pairs of Jordans (one with the box, which is great for authenticating), Nike Soccer Cleats, a PS2, a PS3, two "Clappers" (like Clap on Clap Off), as well as a fan my husband is keeping, a kids wagon, and the three bikes (which he will fix and sell on CL). What the heck! I felt like Martin from Things I Find in the Garbage, alternately sad about what we perceive as trash, and excited for the dollar signs I saw from each item. We have not tested the Play Stations yet. I will keep you updated on this haul. I foresee a lot more garbage picking in my dog walking future.
