So tomorrow Tyler and I are going to Roanoke two hours away for a big book sale. Actually, two big book sales. One's at the Roanoke mall and one's in Salem, which is basically the next town over. I really have no idea how much money to take to these things. I don't know what to expect, either. The one in Roanoke says it has over 20,000 books...amazing...but will I have to dig through boxes of these bad boys? We'll see.
My books have been doing well this week! Here's what I sold:
*On the Road by Jack Kerouac Original Scroll 1st edition - $16.99 (I tried to read this but just couldn't)
* The Long Run by Matt Long - $10.92
* New Nancy Drew books #'s 1-6 - $18.99
* Fun Funky Things to Draw - $10.99
* Hello Cupcake decorating book - $5.99
And I have a Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows first edition that's being bid on right now. I tried to examine these and see a pattern but I didn't see squat. A mix of non-fiction, cook books and fiction kid's books? Hm.
I've read a lot of stuff that says at first, selling books on eBay is intuition. I have that about some things, but with old books I have no clue. I saw an old Poster Art book for sale at our local library a few weeks ago. It was from the '60s and I thought it was pretty cool, something that would go for maybe $20-ish, but I got home and checked completeds and, nada. Luckily I didn't buy it.
My boy's Remington hunting coat sold for $24.00 today, too! Hurray!
I'll be sure to rant/rave about the book sale tomorrow!
