Yardsale Results and Buys
Well my indoor yardsale wasn't as bad as I thought it would be - I made $155, mostly by selling .50 and $1 items. Got rid of a lot of stuff and I will donate some of the leftovers before the end of the year.
I like being able to shop at the other sellers at these sales. I bought this new birdfeeder for $3.
.10 for vintage Coleco baseball game
.25 small canoe planter
.25 bobblehead pen
.25 USS Alamo ashtray
.05 tape measure keychain
And the best of all - that beat up copy of The Jungle Book Sing Along Songs on VHS ($1). With Jacob's love of the Jungle Book, I spotted this video on eBay recently and almost bought it. I'm glad I waited a bit and found it myself.
I think that is one of the best feelings - finding something you've been wanting to buy, for cheap, at a yardsale. And that's why I like selling on ebay too, sometimes you get a nice email from the customer thanking you for selling the item - saying it was exactly what they wanted etc etc etc. Just got a nice feedback from a buyer who said I made a ton of Boy Scouts happy with the vintage Semaphore flags I had sold him.
Speaking of ebay, check out my Enema Man Superhero that I have currently listed (link over there to the left) ...bet you don't have one of those!
I also went to one garage sale that was open until 2pm - I bought a $3 printer which came with 4 used inkjet cartridges. Also bought a nice Bath & Body Works canvas tote bag for .75
I will e-recycle the printer and take the 4 cartridges to Staples and get $12 worth of credit.
Was going thru my pics and here's one of my huge HE Dryer (or washer?) that was in my house for like 10 minutes.
And more proof that I don't buy something just because it's on clearance. Here's a bunch of sale chicken livers.
