I messaged them back and explained that the buyer had already paid and I didn't want to cancel the transaction. I was expecting an angry message when I got up this morning, but there was nothing. Whew. I'm really bad at confrontation, even online. I'm pretty sure I did the right thing.
Anywhooo...I sold my ugly Golf postage stamp shirt I talked about in yesterday's post and it went to Italy today for $24.99 + $28.00 shipping. People be crazy.
I also shipped out Thumper and a pair of Michael Kors plus sized pants I thought were a "sure thing" that took up closet space for over a month. Today's been uneventful. I have some auctions up that are doing well, though. I'll talk about them next week, once they end. Because I'm a genius and have them ending on Christmas.
Today I had to go to the mall and buy my sister in law a birthday present. There's a newer thrift shop across from the mall called "Lend A Paw", henceforth known as LAP that I've only been in once. My mom was watching my feverish baby (sad face), so I went in and got this stuff:
This was one of those "interesting factor" items for me. My instinct sucks, folks, as I will explain in tomorrow's post "The Great Strawberry Shortcake Mug Screw-up". Sometimes, however, I am very good at picking out weird stuff (see Golf postage stamp sweater). I actually bought three of these little boxes, but I haven't taken a pic of the third one. They are what those who lead alternative lifestyles would refer to as "stash boxes", or what us on the straight-and-narrow would call "places to hide your pot". They're about 3" long and 1/2" deep, ceramic, very vintage looking. I'm doing them separately BIN for $9.99. The guy sold them to me for $.75 each instead of the $1.00 marked on them.
