Last week I posted (here) about a trip to the thrift store, where I listed everything on eBay. Well, the auctions have ended and I thought I'd give an update.
I had 4 out of the 11 listings sell at auction.
Ralph Lauren Bermuda's $16.06 (I paid $3.99, kind of steep, but it paid off)
4 Egg Nog Mugs $9.99 ($.59 each)
Dumbo ornament $9.99 ($.99)
Keebler mug $9.99 ($.59, plus this customer bought 2 more mugs from my store)
So, I grossed $46.03 off my $14.57 cash investment. I say grossed since that's not including my eBay or PayPal fees. I feel that if I at least make my investment and initial listing fees back with the auctions, it's a good day (it was a good day). I moved the remaining 7 items to my store for a total of $82.79. They each cost $.03 a month to list, once in the store format. Physically I took the items from my "auction" bin and put them in the appropriate, labeled, clear plastic tubs.
Halloween and Christmas have been hot sellers this week, so get them listed as soon as possible. Have a great week!
