1938 “Sermon on the Mount” by Emmet Fox…sold $12. This was a funny purchase. I thought hubby bought it, and he thought I bought it. Somehow it ended up in my sack.

Here’s the pineapple basket! Remember this from Favorite Weekend Finds…Getting my Thrift Store Fix post? And everybody said to paint it? I’ve found that leaving things as they are usually sells better for me. Then if it doesn’t sell as is, THEN I’ll paint it. Sold for $17.50. (probably could have gotten more, but I try to price reasonably so I don’t have to sit on it so long.)

6 Spools of Crochet Thread….sold for $6.00 (pricing cheap so I can get rid of it.)

I bought this at a Re-store for $3 about a year ago. It got 3 coats of chalk paint and wax because it was rusty and the paint was chipping…and not in a pretty way. I wasn’t sure what it was either. So I did a search on Etsy, and found only one exactly like it (which had sold in the $40 range), so I priced and sold mine (a potato bin) at $42. This is pretty big….larger than I like to ship. Large things require lots of packing and big boxes, which costs more, as you can imagine. As soon as it was listed, a customer from a Western state, was “very interested,” but wanted me to go down on shipping. I couldn’t do it without eating some of the costs, so I didn’t. I’m going to be writing a post soon about shipping. People have NO idea how high shipping costs are, or what goes into shipping prices. I guess they think we’re just setting them high for the heck of it.

Pretty little vintage plate I’ve had a while…make that FOREVER. Sold for $10.00

Vintage rabbit dish, made in England, but chipped. This was from the Favorite Junking Finds Weekend Sylacauga post. Sold for $15.75. Priced low to account for the flaw. (People do buy chipped and cracked.)

Hard to get rid of this because I liked it too! Vintage 60’s Temptations album with Gordy label (sounded great)…Sold for $15.99. Would like to have priced it higher, but there were several on Etsy already. I actually priced it higher than the others were.

As an experienced online seller for 19 years, I've just begun to reveal some of my selling secrets. In my Vintage Finds posts, I show what I buy for resale, and sell for. Because many items are vintage and need TLC, I show these DIY's, and how I refurbish to sell. I love picking, junking, thrifting, and shabby chic style.

  1. Wow, looks like it was a great month for you! I’m curious… the prices you are listing here, are they the price the item was listed for or the price you got after all fees were subtracted?

    Looks like your square dancing shop is going to do well!

    Tania

    1. These are always just the list amount. I don’t figure up the net amount till later. I hope the square dancing shop will do well enough to sell what I have on hand. Fingers crossed!

  2. Good month!! I love to see what others sold. Things should pick up even more in the next few months with the holidays coming up.

  3. You done good! There are a few things I wouldn’t have looked at twice…. ahem… pineapple basket…. πŸ˜€ I’ll know not to diss something like that from now on.

    I do remember the rabbit dish now. So glad you got it.

  4. I have tons of albums, I should try to sell them on my etsy account which I never use. Love that you sold so many items, its inspiring. I have been selling stuff on facebook group I belong to for my region I live. I have been selling some furniture pieces i did with chalk paint.
    Maria

    1. Thank you Maria! YES, list your albums! Especially if they’re vintage rock & roll. I hear the young folks are into them. Good for you selling on FB & some of your furniture pieces!

  5. Really cool sales, Florence! Pinned several. πŸ™‚ Been thinking of selling some of the things I’ve found recently, just not the lady head. πŸ˜€ Tons to sell when we get our things out of storage since we will be downsizing.

    Thanks,
    Barb πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Barb! You could have a downsizing sale…I go to those all the time. Thanks so much for pinning!! Good luck with your sales! Wish I could take a peek at what you have…not that I need anything else…LOL. A friend just gave me a bunch of stuff a couple of days ago. I’m truly running out of room!

    1. Thank you Chrstina! Everyone loves that pineapple basket! It was very nice. Everyone wanted me to paint it. So glad I didn’t now. The person who bought it was using it in a wedding.

  6. I am amazed at the things people will buy. Do they buy them because vintage is better made or because they are collectors? Some of these I would have put on my garage sale to get rid of but I guess what is one person’s trash is another’s treasure. I do like the pineapple though. You know what I think, I am still stuck on dollar prices from 20 years ago. I need to reacquaint myself with today’s prices.

    1. You & me both…I’m always amazed at what they buy too. I don’t know why they buy them either….I think it’s a little of both reasons. Haha, I know! I would probably put them in a garage sale too…you just never know what people will buy. Me too about the prices. I’m still stuck in 20 years ago myself. I probably price too cheap, but I always make a profit over what I paid for something.

  7. Florence, it’s really cool to see what sells. And I agree on shipping, I was amazed when I open my shop at how much shipping costs. And once you go over a certain weight the costs are astronomically higher. Thankfully I don’t have to use boxes very often, they truly are expensive.

    1. I love to see what sells for people too Nikki. Any seller has to conquer shipping. I’m going to be writing a post about that soon. You’re so lucky that you can use mailers for your pillows! Not having the extra weight of a box really adds up on costs.

  8. Looks like you had a great month, and it was fun seeing what you sold and the prices they sold for. I am really surprised to see what people will pay for things. Do you promote your Etsy shop? I remember some of these items in previous post but I don’t remember seeing any Etsy shop post.
    I can’t wait to read your shipping post, I have a problem with the shipping. I don’t sell enough to get ideas what to charge especially on larger items.
    Good luck on your new shop!

    1. Thank you Linda for your comment. I don’t do much promotion of the shop. All I do is pin new listings on various boards…mainly Etsy boards. And I give attention to good customer service. When you start out, it just takes time to develop a name for yourself & a reputation.
      For instance, in my new shop, it looks like I’m a new seller just starting out.
      I’m always surprised by what people buy too!
      I’m going to get that shipping post done! Thanks for the encouragement!

  9. Hi Florence. Thank you so much for sharing your sales. Its really interesting to see what types of things sell and for how much. Its also nice to see vintage items appreciated and bought.

    Congratulations on your successful store, well done.

    1. Thank you Leanna! Glad you enjoyed the post! Isn’t it true though…about people still interested in & buying vintage? I’M glad! Appreciate your dropping in.
