I told you it was a lot! Well, I am nothing if not determined…I managed to FINALLY get it all listed! Woohoo!! No thanks to Amazon taking forever to process new listings but I checked back and now it is all up to date and was able to be completed.
So here we go!
The best of the bunch today (and there was a bunch):
First I’ll start with the 8 bags of plush that I picked up. I don’t just grab every bag they have (I have to spot at least one or two things worth selling) but I do go through each one when I get it home to make sure there isn’t anything in a bag that I didn’t realize I could sell. There often is!
Bag #1 – paid $2.97 and listed 8 plush. I will make $83.10 on this bag alone.
Bag #2 – paid $2.97 and wound up throwing out the entire bag even though there were plush I could list. It smelled so badly. I have lucked out and most of the bags I bring home smell fresh inside but all the plush in this one reeked of stale cigar smoke. Just awful.
Bag #3 – paid $3.97 and listed 6 plush. I will make $35.92 on this bag.
Bag #4 – paid $3.97 and listed 5 plush. I will make $47.88 on this bag.
Bag #5 – paid $2.97 and listed 5 plush. I will make $56.54 on this bag.
Bag #6 – paid $4.97 and listed both plush in the bag. I will make $49.16 on this bag.
Bag #7 – paid $2.97 and listed 1 plush. I will make $24.11 on this bag.
Bag #8 – paid $3.97 and listed 3 plush. I will make $55.33 on this bag.
I picked up a few Build a Bear animals for $1.97 each and listed them for $20, $20, $25, and $35. I also listed the clothing they came in separately for about $10 an outfit.
The Walking Dead plush – paid $1 and listed for $25.
Dance Star Mickey – paid $6.97 and listed for $55.
The singing Frosty the Snowman – paid $2.97 and listed for $55.
The Animal Planet Safari Train – paid $4.97 and listed for $55.
The Vintage Corning Ware Loaf pan in original box – paid $2.97 and listed for $45.
The Sharp Memo Master – paid $1.97 and listed $25.
The swan boat – paid $1.97 and listed for $25.
The Soft puffy elmo – paid $1 and listed for $45.
The Sweetie Pie Kid Tessa – paid $1 and listed for $45.
The Vermont Teddy Bear – paid $2.97 and listed for $55.
The Dog Lab Princess Plush – paid $1.97 and listed for $75 (these go for a lot … the are great to find!)
The Large Laying on his belly Elmo – paid $1 and listed for $45.
The silicone cake molds were $3.97 each and I listed both for $35.
The Kermit plush – paid $1 and listed for $35.
The Ringling Bros Elephant plush – paid $4.97 and listed for $45.
The Winnie the Pooh Dome Tent – paid $2.97 and listed for $75.
The Dress Rehearsal Bear set – paid $2.97 and listed for $45.
The Barbie Ornaments – paid 97 cents each and listed one for $35. The other I will list for $35 when Amazon realizes it isn’t Hazmat (no idea why they only flagged one of them when I created both listings).
The only duds were the stinky bag of plush that I lost $2.97 on and the Barbie ornament I am waiting to clear.
The bottom line:
Total items listed: 68
Total Buy Cost: $105.20
Total Sales Value: $1727.89
Total Net Profit: $1131.55
So, a very, very, very good profit for today but I’ll be honest…. I did a LOT of work. I spent 2 hours shopping for all of it and at about 5 hours listing (not all steady but coming back and doing some here and there around helping the kids with homework, making dinner, etc). It took so long because I had to create a bunch of listings and because Amazon was moving like molasses tonight. But, now that it is finally done I am happy. If you look at the 7 total hours spent working today (totally not my norm) at least I can be happy with a potential hourly rate of $161.65. And happy I am. And tired.
I don’t know if I will have any hauls between tomorrow and the end of the weekend. If it rains Friday and the kids school fundraiser is postponed I’ll get out but otherwise I will be back for sure on Monday with more goodies to share!
