eBay Selling Success Story - Walmart Stuffed Animal

I had some recent eBay success, a few weeks back, selling a stuffed animal that I thought I'd share. Stuffed animals can a huge success if you are patient.

I bought this cute little stuffed dog at a thrift store for $.59 and he sold from my store for $29.97. Check out the listing here. That's a $29.38 profit before eBay fees, just for a few minutes worth of work on one listing!

Now, like I said it takes patience if you're looking for that kind of profit. As far as success in selling plush (stuffed animals), the less common brands do better. What I mean is this Walmart dog sold for $29.97 but you might only get $10 for a Ty stuffed bear. It seems to be a supply and demand type situation as well. Think about it, if little Suzie lost her favorite stuffed dog, and if you're the only one on eBay with a listing, you'll most likely get your asking price. Listing them in a store format, rather than at auction, is the best way to go. Also, consider adding a "or best offer" feature to the listing. But, how do you know which plush pieces to price at $10 and what to price at $30 or maybe even $40? Take a peek around eBay. See how many others are for sell and price accordingly. No others for sell? Price a bit higher and add "or best offer".

For more about selling on eBay, read my eBay selling page! Thanks for taking a peek and good luck!

My Last Goodwill Trip For 2009 Was A Success

I thought I'd share my most recent trip to Goodwill with you. It was a good trip overall, but nothing was on sale so I paid a bit more than usual out of pocket. I could have done way better if I hit the New Years Day sale yesterday, but I can't win them all! I went ahead and went on New Years Eve so I could drop off a couple of boxes to donate. It was the last donation day for the 2009 tax year and it was worth the extra $10 or so I probably spent.

On the left is what I got for my kids. My son ended up with a pair of Gymboree jeans and two GAP shirts and my daughter got a cute pair of "like new" shoes for next year. I spent a total of $11.86 on them (with tax).

On the right is my pile of eBay goodies. I spent another $24.52 on eBay, including tax. I am guessing I'll bring in about $160 from it, once it all sales. That's like a 650% mark up! :)

Here's what I snagged for eBay:

Pair of Mickey Mouse glasses
3 Mugs
Cookie Stamp (new with tag)
Christmas plate
"Teacher" aroma pot thingy (new in box)
Breast Cancer/Pink Ribbon tie
3 kids designer sweaters (Talbots, Gymboree, Hartstrings)
Boys Talbots shirt
Vintage Lacoste sweater!!
Plus-sized Christmas sweater

So overall, I spent $36.38 at Goodwill. Not considering the "Goodwill" part, $36.38 for just 3 designer items and a pair of shoes is an awesome deal! Do you have any great thrift store trips to share? I'm a thrift store addict and would love to hear about them, email me!
