What sells for the other guy is totally fascinating to me, so here are my Etsy and Ebay sales for July 2017. All us sellers love to get the scoop of what’s selling, but some sellers sure won’t tell you! Here are my 32 sales and what I sold them for!
Online Sales July 2017
The 1 Ebay sale: Clinique compact…a gift & not my colors. Sold for $8 to a girl from Italy.
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.
Western belt…sold $11.99
Vintage Avon Powder Jar…sold $16.50
Mother of Pearl Cufflinks and Tie Bar…sold $18.00
Vintage Enamel Choker Necklace: sold $19.28
Fall Fabric…took forever…sold $15.00
Cross Stitch “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.” I cross stitched this myself in the 70’s. $16.00
Frog Figurine…sold $14.00
Vintage Lamp Parts Salvage…sold $15.00
Men’s Vintage “Looper’s” Western Belt…Sold for $18.00
Vintage 60’s “My Book House.” These take forever to sell, but I got a set of 11 volumes about a year ago for a total of 66¢. Sold $15.00
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.)
Bought at a Thrift Store when I was out of town. I thought it was cute and liked the rustic look. Sold quickly for $18.00
Another Thrift Store purchase….shabby chic switch plates. I didn’t have to do anything to them. Yay!! Sold for $18.00
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.
Vintage Trucker’s Belt Buckle (had a lot of wear on it, but it sold) $18.00
Vintage 70’s Eagles album with a lot of the classic hits. Sounded great too. Sold for $11.00. Again…a lot of them on Etsy.
Vintage Knitting tote bag in great condition. Not a fan of the fabric, but sold for $32.88
Vintage cigarette lighter by Storm King…sold for $20.
One of my favorite recent buys that I haven’t posted yet, and there’s a story behind this….a Vintage Mailbox. Sold within a few days of listing for $36.00. Lots of them on Etsy in this price range.
Vintage Quilt pieces…sold low at $8.00 because a lot were stained.
This surprised me because there are so many on Etsy, but it sold quickly. $10.50
Wooden decal…the kind you glue on furniture. Still in package. Sold for $4.50. They weren’t going for much.
Bought at a Thrift Store a while back, it was in such nice shape….it’s a tie and belt organizer…sold to someone in Spain, I think, for $26.00.
Vintage creamer from Poland, marked “Wawel.” Sold for $12.32.
This was from~ 5 Reasons I Go Picking Out of Town and Favorite Junking Finds…sold for $30.00
Here’s my first sale at a new Etsy shop I just opened! Called “SquareDanceNWestern,” I am listing my Square Dance clothes and accessories.” Sold for $14.00
That’s it my friends. Hope you stuck with me. I know it’s a lot of photos, but hopefully those who sell online can get some ideas and inspiration. That’s what I’m doing this for.
Would you pin this for me?
