The yard sale was very slow yesterday. Well, we had a lot of people who wanted to spend about $.50 on everything. Sold lots of books, DVDs and baby clothes. I made about $200 for both days, so thank goodness we decided to have it on Friday, too!
I had this Kelty internal frame backpack out there and had to get $20.00 for it. I only used it once, but no one was interested, so when I got home, I snapped a few shots and threw it up on eBay for $75.00 OBO. It sold about 2 hours later for my full asking price!
BOLO alert: I bought a black version of this bicycling skort a few months ago from the SA and it sold really quickly for about $30.00. I found this one yesterday:
It looks great and is super clean, so I posted it last night for $27.00 and it sold this morning to a girl who bought that and a pair of Columbia capris I wore once. The brand is Terry and they specialize strictly in women's cycling gear. Their stuff is so cute (and pricey), it almost makes me wish I was interested in bicycling!
Another BOLO: John Le Carre books! He's the author of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, which was recently made into a big movie and has boosted his book's popularity. His protagonist, George Smiley is like the anti-James Bond spy and my husband loves his books. A local thrift shop we have has a ton of the books in hard back with dust jackets that are first trade editions. They're $1.00, and Tyler told me that they sell for a good amount online, so I went and got some. These two sold to the same person last night for $15.00 each!
So what was an excrutiatingly slow week has turned into a very profitable weekend! This is one of the best eBay weekends I have had in a while and I'm very glad for it! Our chances of taking a great vacation are looking better and better!
