So the plan was to update the blog daily…but we’ve been total slackers!  We’re super busy working our normal jobs, trying to get some backpacking trips in, keeping up with eBay, and trying to spread our fingers into some new areas of revenue!  We’ll do our best to keep pace and update, if not daily, and least weekly!  Keep your eye on the rest of the website as it continues to grow as well!

TOP 4 SALES

Item: Sundance Black Leather Purse
Paid Price: $4.99
Sale Price: $42.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: If you’ve never heard of Sundace, then we’re in the same boat!  My wife and I were just cruising through purses when I grabbed this one.  Quality leather has a feel to it and so this went into the cart to be looked up.  Lo and behold our hand were right!  Quality sells!  Even if it takes 2 months as it did in this case.

Item: DREW Big Easy Therapeutic Boots
Paid Price: $12.99
Sale Price: $54.95
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: DREW is one of the most expensive brands of orthopedics.  We’ve found a couple of their shoes now and they’re always big sellers.  These sold in a couple weeks for 4x what we paid for them.  Now if the pair of 12WWWW women’s DREW Mary Janes would just sell….

Item: Guess Zebra Print Woven Purse
Paid Price: $7.00
Sale Price: $29.71
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: Terrible.  This purse sat for mooooonths.  It actually sold 3 times and only on the third time did the buyer actually bay.  Then, over the weekend (when we don’t ship) the buyer got antsy and asked where her purse was!  She didn’t know how to send a message though so she just left feedback (positive thankfully) and typed her message in the feedback bar.  Anyway, she has it now! *end rant
Guess is usually a great brand to look for but we’ve had very slow luck with their purses lately.  This one had a flaw on the handle and was extremely ugly overall…not great selling points.

Item: Vintage Chicken/Rooster Ornaments
Paid Price: $9.40
Sale Price: $39.99
Shipping: Buyer Paid
Notes: These chickens were not fast movers, but it’s something we expected.  We actually thought they might sit around until the holiday season!  They peaked at 3 watchers a couple weeks after being listed and did absolutely nothing for months.  This week they sold out of the blue and are on their way to a nice new home!  We found these in grab bags at savers and the reason they were so expensive is that we had to buy 3 grab bags to get all of them!
