I didn’t have a lot of time this morning to go thrifting but since I hadn’t made it out at all this week I wanted to stop by at least one Goodwill. Luckily, it was time well spent because I found a few goodies to sell!
The best finds were the Golden Books Away in a Manger puzzle that I found for $1.97 and listed for $45 and the four plush from the movie Home on the Range which I paid $2.97 each for and listed for $25, $35, $35, and $45 respectively.
I also found a vintage Snoopy and Woodstock Colorform set from the 1960’s amazingly still in great condition and even more amazingly complete with all 39 original colorforms! I paid only $1.97 for it and am listing it for $45.
The only dud today is that Franklin Shoot and Score soccer game. I paid $1.97 for it but it is only being sold for $8.97 on Amazon right now and by Amazon themselves so I decided that I would keep it for a Christmas present instead. My oldest daughter loves soccer and will get a real kick out of it. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
Today’s bottom line:
Total items listed: 10
Total buy cost: $26.70
Total Sales Value: $350
Total Net Profit: $241.64
For a quick in and out trip… I’ll take it!! And even better because I dedicated some time today to get work done in my office I not only picked these items up but also got them and a whole box of other stuff from last week boxed and on the porch for pickup today. Go me!!!
Sorry it was such a slow week thrifting-wise (and last week too) but have no fear … more trips are on the way! Next week I will be thrifting all five days (she says with her fingers crossed that everyone is healthy next week). My regional Goodwill’s (which is the 4 I frequent most often) are all offering a coupon for $5 off a $30 purchase good from Sunday November 9th through Saturday November 15th and you don’t even have to show the coupon (just mention it to the cashier) so it can be used over and over. I am going to try to hit all four every day next week and see how much stuff I can get out to Amazon as Black Friday arrives and sales kick into overdrive. They also mention in the flyer that the Christmas sections will be rolling out at the stores next week so lots of stuff to source!
I guess I better rest up this weekend!
