SMALL SALES, BIG THRIFTING!

Sales today were back up a bit but still weren’t up to much.  When my wife and I went up to visit my parents however we totally killed it…. we visited a small town thrift store (the only one in the town I grew up in) and spent over $200.  New with tags Tommy Bahama stuff, north face, vintage clothing, snakeskin shoes, Tevas, golf and cycling clothing, you name it we got it!  I’m trying to get caught up on listing at the moment but hopefully in future I’ll be able to share more of our thrifting finds with you before they go on eBay!

Item: High Top Converse All-Stars
Paid Price: $4.99
Sale Price: $19.99
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: There was absolutely nothing special about these shoes and as a result they didn’t sell particularly well.  I no longer pick up Converse to list on eBay unless they’re very cheap or very unusual.  I’m still on the lookout for a pair of leather ones!

Item: Alfani Dean Men’s Brown Boots – New In Box
Paid Price: $15.00
Sale Price: $34.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: I found these boots in both black and brown (both new in box) at a small local thrift store.  Although they took longer to sell and sold at a lower price than I had hoped, they were easy to photograph and list and were at least marginally profitably.  The black pair is still hanging around however!
