What it sold for

This week has been my best BIN week. I figure this could either be because of the store or because of the fact I have triple the BIN stuff I usually have because of my books. Either way, I'm happy!

After reading some other blogs and the eBay magazine I got in the mail this week I decided to go through my listings and make all BIN with free shipping.

Did anyone else get this in the mail? Pretty much every page said "offer free shipping or else no one will buy from you EVERRRR." Or something like that.

I don't know if this jump-started my sales, either, but I'm sure it didn't hurt! Sure, I've got some of my books very cheap and since I'm paying for shipping, I'm not making too much, but I am making something and that makes me happy. Here's some numbers:

*Storm Trooper costume from my last post: Paid $8.99, sold for $19.99 plus shipping

*Game of Thrones Hardback book: Paid $1.00, sold for $15.99 free shipping

*Water for Elephants paperback: Paid $.50, sold for $3.45 free shipping

*Gymboree Strawberry Fairy costume: Paid $6.00, sold for $17.99 free shipping

*Sopranos Cookbook: we already owned this, sold for $6.45 free shipping

*Clairol quick lift heated pins: Paid $2.97, sold for $9.99 free shipping (not much profit here)

*Clairol hot rollers: Paid $1.00, sold for $13.99 free shipping

*Paula Deen cookbook: already owned this, sold for $7.99 free shipping

*Harry Potter History of Quidditch: Paid $1.00, sold for $10.99 free shipping

*Brown Stromberg-Carlson rotary phone: Paid $2.00, sold for $29.99 free shipping

*Lot of The Clique books: Paid approx $2.00 for 11 books, sold for $9.99 plus shipping

And there's actually others, but that's all I can think of off the top of my head and I'm too lazy to go get my records book, plus my computer is about to die. Hope you all had a good sales week, too and good luck at the yard sales tomorrow!

PS- Since Yard Sale Mommy is MIA, does anyone know any other good link-ups for yard sale finds? Thanks!


  1. I've been doing linkups of yard sale and thrift store finds for the past few weeks over on my blog Check it out and feel free to linkup. I'd love to see what you find! I'll be putting another one up this Sunday as well. I miss yardsalemommy too!

  2. You do ship your books media mail right?

  3. Oh of course! And thank, Amy! I'll link up tomorrow!

  4. Although,sometimes media mail isn't much cheaper than parcel or priority! It's crazy.
