I finally got a chance to list everything I bought the past two days and I did pretty well, if I do say so myself!
I didn’t spend a lot of time either day thrifting …. only two stores each day for about an hour total each day….but the shelves were full and I got quite a bit. Especially in the plush category! I actually filled four huge bags with plush from just one Goodwill today and was told it had just been put out so I had perfect timing.
Most all of the plush cost $1.97 or $2.97 and I listed most for $35 each. I’ll highlight the especially good finds below but it was a lot to try and list individually.
Here are the best finds of the day(s):
The Pfaltzgraff Winterberry frosted floating candle – I paid $3.97 and listed it for $45.
The Noma Ballerina ornament – I paid 97 cents and listed for $35.
The Power Rangers 2 in 1 nightlight/flashlight – I paid $2.97 and listed for $45.
Now the best of the plush haul:
The Jumbo Pooh Bear – I paid $4.97 for him and listed for $55.
The Queen of Hearts – I paid $2.97 and listed for $40.
The large Minnie plush – I paid $2.97 and listed for $45.
The Vexy Smurf plush – I paid $3.97 and listed for $45.
The Kung Fu Pand Pro Wrestler Plush – I paid $2.97 for him and listed for $75.
The Rio Talking Blu plush – I paid $3.97 and listed for $75.
No duds today but I did have a few things I couldn’t find and didn’t have time to create listings for so I added those to my pile in the basement and will work on them over the summer most likely.
Let’s look at the bottom line:
Total items listed: 45
Total Buy Cost: $134.84
Total Sales Value: $1387.84
Total Net Profit: $904.68
I only thrifted for about 2 hours between the two days and since I didn’t create any new listings it only took me about 2 hours to photograph, prep, and list the whole lot of it. So for my four hours worked the past two days I get a potential hourly rate of $226.17 … a new record!
Unfortunately, I have a sick little guy here at home as of this afternoon so there will be no thrifting tomorrow and only lots of snuggling. I am hoping to be back at it Thursday but we will see how he is by tomorrow night.
Have a great night!!
