Hello! I am sorry I have been so quiet lately but things have been really busy with everything my kids have going on. Today was the first day I was able to get out and thrift and even that was a very small, one stop shop because I also had grocery orders to fill and was volunteering in my second graders class. Still I am glad that I did stop because although it was a small haul it was a profitable one!
It is funny because as I sped through the store tossing items in my cart this morning the one item (the ET playset) that I thought would be worth a lot really wasn’t and two other items that I didn’t think would be were very high value.
Since it’s a small haul I will share all of it:
The 5 Little Monkey Gift Basket – paid $2.97 and matched Amazon’s price of $24.47.
The Dickensvale Train Station – paid $3.97 and listed for $45.
The Buddy Hollyday Dog plush – paid $1.97 and listed for $10.
The ET Elliot’s Room Playset – this is the one I actually squealed when I saw it thinking 1) OMG! I want one!!! and 2) I bet this is worth a fortune. But, alas I was only able to list it for $35 (paid $3.97).
The Black Belt Karate Studio – I thought this was cool but didn’t realize exactly how much it sells for when I grabbed it. I paid $2.97 and matched the low price at $135.00.
The Hooked on Spelling Set – Here is the other one that really surprised me. I generally grab the “Hooked on” kits because I know they can fetch a good price but half the time they wind up not being complete. This one I lucked out on because it was not only complete but it was all unopened and shrink wrapped inside. And it appears to a harder to find set so I was thrilled to see how high it is listing at. I will be the only seller with such a good copy of it (listing as Like New with notes that the box has been opened but inside has not) and because I want to sell as quickly as possible I priced in the middle of the pack at $250.00.
The bottom line:
Total items listed: 7
Total Buy Cost: $20.79
Total Sales Value: $544.47
Total Net Profit: $416.13
I spent about an hour total shopping and listing this one so I definitely did well today! Tomorrow I have Kindergarten visitation most of the morning at my sons school but I am hoping to get in a quick trip before I have to be over there. If not I will be back Friday for sure.
Have a fabulous night!
