I am back with the results from yesterdays thrifting. The kids have (yet another) delayed opening for school but even so I mananged to get through yesterdays finds. Go me!!
So, let’s dive right in!
The best finds of the day were:
Puzzles! New, sealed puzzles can be very profitable and I never leave a store without searching them out. Yesterday I found:
The Delicate Arch Puzzle – paid $2.97 – listed for $45.
The Cottage Puzzle – paid $.97 and listed for $35.
The Fire Wizard Puzzle – paid $1.97 and listed for $35.
The Direct TV receiver. It is an older model but still sells for enough to make it worth picking up. Paid $6.97 and listed for $45.
Hide and Eek – looks like a cute game and thought about keeping it for us but we have a bunch of games still unopened from Christmas and Aidan’s birthday so into the sell pile it goes. Paid $1.97 and listed for $35.
The Strawberry Shortcake Vintage radio/cd player – This was my favorite find of the day. So cute!! Paid $2.97 and listed for $55.
The plush were all $.97 to $3.97 and listed for $20 to $45 each.
The only dud of the day:
I decided to keep the My First Cross Stitch kit because it wasn’t selling for a lot and my oldest daughter would love to do this one afternoon.
I need to do more research on the Mickey plush holding the picture frame and the two vintage wooden puzzles so those are going into the bins in the basement that I will be tackling.
All in all a very good day and a nice way to kick up my motivation.
The bottom line:
Listed: 24 items
Total Buy Cost: $60.28
Total Sales Value: $722.45
Total Net Profit: $480.50
I thrifted for 2 hours yesterday (although admittedly I was also on the hunt for some exercise close and some stuff for the kids so my time was split) and it took me about an hour to get set back up for listing and get through everything today. Total time spent was 3 hours which gives me a potential net profit of $160.16 an hour for this trip. Awesome!!
Ok, I am off to get the kids to school (finally) and use my very short window while my little guy is at preschool to fill a couple grocery orders and if I can fit it pop into a store I didn’t make it to yesterday and do a little thrifting.
Have a fabulous day!!
