Daily Sales: 5/26/2015

EVERYONE NEEDS A LITTLE HIPPIE CRUISE-WEAR… Sales haven’t been quite where we want over the past week or two so we put everything on 15% sale for 24 hours.  Several things sold during that time but unfortunately, they were things that probably would have sold anyway! hahaHowever, we’re not a fan of, “That sold so fast!  We should have asked for more!”  Unless we messed up and listed started something on a super low bid, we are just happy when things sell. OUR TOP 3 SALES Item: Duluth Trading Windproof FleecePaid Price: $4.20Sale Price: $27.62Shipping: Buyer PaidNotes: This is such a nice jacket that I was almost sad that it sold!  Have you ever had an item that is nice that you’re bummed when you find out how little it’s worth?  To add insult to injury, this jacket sold when all our clothing was on 15% sale.  Oh well!  5 bucks is 5 bucks!  I’m just …

OUR TOP 3 SALES Item: NWOT Men’s Coach Flip FlopsPaid Price: $11.99Sale Price: $55.00 (Best Offer accepted)Shipping: Buyer PaidNotes: These flip flops have been the bane of my existence.  They’re one of those items that your’re super excited to find and think they’ll sell fast…but then they just sit for months garnering nothing but watchers …

How we got our start selling on eBay

“Oh wow!  Kirstie, look at these shoes!  What size are they….oh….a size 6.  How about this jacket?!  Oh….it’s a 4XL.   Nothing fits me!  Tell you what….hand me that jacket, I’m going to sell it and buy one my size! And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how greatness occurs.  Or at least, how my wife and I doubled our income by thrifting and selling part-time on eBay.  At first we thought, “Well an extra couple hundred dollars a month would be nice” then it was “If we could pay our rent every month with eBay profits…” and now it’s, “Do you think we could buy a house within two years?!” haha Which of course, brings us to this blog.  Hopefully you’ll find it entertaining and profitable while it motivates us and help us keep our goals in sight!  Everyday I’ll be updating you on sales over the past 24 hours, brands to be on the …
