It was another good week on Ebay. The great thing about hearing your phone go ca-ching is not only getting paid, but that means it’s time to go out and get some more inventory. :) I love the hunt for new things. I love finding cool things that are full of history and finding ‘junk’ a new home where it can be loved and appreciated.
This week we went down to an auction and boy, they zipped right through. There were a few things that I wanted to get, but a lot of it was out of my comfort zone and went a little to high for me to risk when I didn’t know anything about it. There was a beautiful hand painted clock. I bid up to $290 and then stopped. I got scared! There was lots of sterling silver, costume jewelry and dishes. I’m still kicking myself for letting a man get a box of gorgeous antique plates for $25. I thought he was bidding on something else. Oh well. I was able to pick up a few great items and learn a little something while I have been busy listing my new items.
But you want to know what sold last week! If you read the last update, I had a large lot of tintype photographs. So it was another tintype selling week. I had paid $30 for all of them and last week they had sold for $191.82!
This pretty lady sold for $10.50
I called this guy the plaid cowboy. I honestly didn’t have any expectations – I started it the same I did the others, at $3.00.
He sold for $43.97!
How awesome is this photo? I thought these guys looked awesome and like they were ready to go for a safari. It was one of my favorites and I was excited to see it do well!
Sold for $36.10
Several other tintypes sold this week too. And also, I had a few Hallmark ornaments. I bought a tote of ornaments at an auction a while ago for $10. I took a few out to sell online and posted the rest of them for $20 on a Facebook garage sale group. It sold immediately and it left me with a few of the higher selling ornaments.
These Father Christmas ornaments have been doing well. I had 5 total and so far have sold 3 and the other 2 currently have bids.
This one sold for $31.00
This week I sold $208.12 worth of items.
ALL of it was profit! :)
What did you sell last week?
