I ended up selling my 2nd Ethan Allen recliner...I bought the pair at a garage sale for $25...for both!!!! I sold one last week for $120, and I sold the leather one this week for $100.
My top sellers this week have been:
This Talbot's women's blazer sold for $14.99, I paid $3.
This Chico's skirt sold for $10, I paid $2.
Here a few things I learned this week:
-when shopping on GW dollar days, you must not go hungry or grumpy or short on time...be prepared to work.
-3 of the 20 items I bought needed to be fixed/mended. it's hard to inspect every square inch of a garment when in the aisle with 5 other people looking for yellow tags. I have a sewing machine, so I managed to repair 2 of the 3. When I listed the 3rd item, I just took pics of the flaws, and edited them at picnik.com, and added arrows to point out the flaws. Therefore the buyer will know what they are getting.
-when I start the packing process, I took out all of the sold items, and sprayed them lightly with Febreze. It just made me feel better. :)
Thanks again girls for inspiring me to make extra money for my family. I have already earned just enough to pay for one of my daughter's summer school classes....almost. The fees are just under $2000, and with the money I've earned selling in the past 2 weeks, and the OT I worked last weekend, I'm short a few $100. What an accomplishment!!! My twins are turning 21 in December, and my next goal is to earn and pay for our trip to Vegas. Now I'm not stressed or worried about how we are going to pay for the trip. Now have a plan.
I can't wait to see what everyone else has sold this week!!!
