On the table above you see the stuff I picked up today. I hit three Goodwill’s and didn’t do too badly. I managed to get it all listed AND finished up the listings left from yesterday. I’ll share both here (just go back to yesterdays post to see the picture associated with that trip).
The best finds from yesterday were:
The Lite Brite Easel – paid $6.97 and listed for $55.
The Puzzle – paid $4.97 and listed for $35.
The VHS Set – paid $1.97 and listed for $45.
The Lego Sets (brand new!) – I don’t pick up the brand new Lego sets donated from Target because they are usually too pricey and too new to make a profit but these were older, non-Target donated sets and unopened so I grabbed them. I paid $4.97 each and listed one at $21.49 and the other at $38.42.
The bag of Ty McDonalds Happy Meal Beanie Babies was $$1.97 and I listed them for $10, $10, and $5.
The M&M dispenser – paid $3.97 and listed for $45.
The Kitchen Aid Slicer attachment – paid $6.97 and listed for $35.
The Roady XM Kit – paid $2.97 and listed for $45.
The bag of Wilton Candy molds I paid $3.97 for and listed 5 of them for between $5 and $10 each.
The Hooked on Phonics Master Set – paid $9.97 and listed for $150.00. Great find!
The Cabbage Patch Kids Snuggies bag I paid $6.97 for and listed both for $35 each.
The $1.97 bag of plush yielded 2 listings at $8.35 and $20.

The Batman Penguin Plush – paid $1.97 and listed for $45.
The duds from this trip were:
The Pufalump – Not a true dud but he is Hazmat flagged so I have to wait until he clears to list him.
The Talk and Learn Numbers – it turns out this doesn’t work. Paid $1.97.
And now the best find from today’s trip:
The Tony Stewart Sippy cups – paid $3.97 and listed for $35.
The Snowflake White Pooh Plush – paid $1 and listed for $45.
The Build a Bear Collie – paid $3.97 and listed for $45.
The Eden Curduroy Bear – paid $2.97 and listed for $65.
The Busch Gardens Griffin Plush – paid $1.97 and listed for $45.
The Build a Bear Fudge Pup – paid $1.97 and listed for $35.
The Lady and the tramp Lady plush – paid $1.97 and listed for $35.
The Hooked on Phonics PreK sets – I always get excited when I find these in general but sometimes they are missing pieces. This time both of them (although the boxes are in rough shape) had the inside contents still sealed making them a great find. I paid $4.97 for one and listed it for $55 and $6.97 for the other and listed for $50.
The bag of plush I paid $2.97 for and did VERY well with it. I listed 6 items for $7.50, $10, $35, $15, $45, and $75.
The only dud from this batch was the Bob Books and only because I decided to keep them for my Kindergarten aged son. A steal at $1!
Ok, so because I didn’t break out the days I’m going to do a bottom line for both trips. And actually there are also a few other items in there that I didn’t take pictures of. I sometimes bid on auctions for items if I know they will sell well and for a lot of money and a few of those items (about 6) are in this batch too (which makes for a bit higher out of pocket expense than usual but also a higher net profit).
Total items listed (this week so far): 94
Total Buy Cost (including both trips and the auction items): $418.97
Total Sales Value: $3767.35
Total Net Profit: $2429.53
I shopped for about 5 hours total and spent about 4 hours listing. Then add in about another hour for the auctions and listing those items. So roughly 10 hours of work this week giving me a potential net profit of $242.30 an hour. Well over my goal so that makes me happy … especially since the rest of the week is full of Halloween fun and I am not sure how much more thrifting I will get in.
I’ll probably be back with at least a few things before the weeks end but I don’t expect any more huge hauls until next week.
Have a great night!!
