Hey! I hope you all had a fabulous Halloween weekend and are ready for a new week! The kids are off for teacher conferences today and have a half day tomorrow so I’m not totally back to normal but I am getting there. Today a friend and I took the kids out to a local Bounce House and to lunch after but still I was able to list the stuff I picked up last week (in between school parties and other obligations) so I am feeling ahead of the game.
Everything on the table above is from thrifting with the exception of the Risk game. That was picked up through an online auction for about $20 and I listed it for $65.
Here are the best goodies of the haul:
The Puzzle – paid .97 and listed for $23.95
The Madagascar 3 Jiggler tray – paid 97 cents and listed for $15.
The Vintage West Bend Percolator – I really wanted to keep this because it is so cool (love the retro avocado green) but I couldn’t justify the space it would take up. I paid $3.97 and listed for $75.
The Lisa Frank Horse plush – paid $1.50 and listed for $45.
Crawling Baby Minnie- paid $1.97 and listed for $45.
The Aflac Lifeguard plush – paid 97 cents and listed for $35.
The Pufalump mouse – paid 75 cents and listed for a whopping $75.
The Bratz Babyz doll – paid $2.97 and listed for $75.
I also picked up a few bags of plush:
Bag #1 I paid $3.97 for, listed 6 items, and will net $15.12 on the bag.
Bag #2 I paid $1.97 for, listed 2 items, and will net $21.45 on the bag.
Bag #3 I paid $3.97 for, listed 3 items, and will net $23.81 on the bag.
I also picked up three bags of like new issues of the Which Way USA state puzzle books – 38 books total. I paid $2.97 a bag for them and listed each issue for $10. I should net $204.06 when they all eventually sell.
The Sanrio Pochacco puppy plush – paid 75 cents and listed for $45.
Not shown on the table is a very cool Dilbert mask that I bought my husband to wear for work this year. It was a hit at his office and now I am going to sell it. Paid $3.97 and listing it for $55.
The only duds were the Roger Rabbit costume set (paid $1.97) which was really mildewed once I opened the box and I tossed it and the Blue Jay Puzzle that I decided to keep (paid $1.97).
The bottom line:
Total items listed: 90
Total Buy Cost: $92.58
Total Sales Value: $1454.12
Total Net Profit: $860.98
I’m not going to guess at my net profit because honestly I don’t remember how much time I spent picking this stuff up last week. I don’t think it was too long though and with that much net profit from just the one haul it seems that I made our really well.
I don’t expect to do any thrifting tomorrow but am hoping to box up everything I have purchased since my last shipment out to Amazon and get it out. Then I can start fresh on Wednesday!
I’ll also re-open my grocery listings tonight or tomorrow. I have already had a customer email me and ask when I would have one item back in stock and with Thanksgiving around the corner I expect a bump in sales that I don’t want to miss!
Have a great night!
