As I mentioned before today is the only day I will be thrifting this week (well, if I can totally stay away lol) and I wanted to make it a big one. I made the rounds to all four Goodwill’s in the area and found some goodies along the way!
One store in particular gave me a lot of good scores by way of vintage board games which is always nice.
My favorite finds of the day were:
Solarquest – I LOVED this game when I was younger (Ok, I still do and am not parting with my own copy for any amount of money). I paid $1.97 for this one and listed it at a very conservative $35.
Truth or Dare Jenga – I never even heard of this one! Paid $3.97 and listed for $35.
Pop up Pirate Game – Paid $1.97 and listed for $35 (see a theme here?)
Blues Clues Play House Play Clay – Paid $1.97 and listed for $45.
Met life Surfer Snoopy – brand new in his bag! Paid .97 cents and listed for $40.
And finally the Ty Beanie Baby Swiper for whom I paid .97 cents. I have actually sold him before and in the same condition (very good) for $35 so I priced there again with this guy too.
Now for the duds:
The Easter Surprise Barbie: I paid $4.97 for her and listed her at $10. And I’m one of the highest priced FBA sellers. I tend to get excited over Barbies and grab them when I should scan them to be sure they were worth something. Hopefully one day I learn this lesson. Sigh.
The Boyds ornament and the Precious Moments boy were both broken and both $1.97.
And the final dud is totally my fault. Rookie mistake. I waited to finish listing until after the kids were home and my 6 year old fell in love with her. She didn’t have a Minnie Mouse doll yet and what can I say? I’m a sucker for those kids!
So, moving on….let’s look at the bottom line.
23 items listed.
Buy cost: $46.46
Total Sales Value: $531.50
Total Net Profit: $328.68
Not my best day, but not my worst either!
