A couple of those orders haven't paid yet and I don't have any of them ready to go to the Post Office. I will update tomorrow and let you know what my actual profit is.
Today we went to get more jars! One lady had 176 and the other had 29 for a total of 205 jars! I think I'm well stocked for awhile! When we got home I looked through the jars kind of quickly to see if there were any special ones that might sell for more. I found one Ball jar with the number 13 on the bottom. Those jars are said to be rare because people were superstitious and would break the jars that had the number 13 on the bottom! I don't know if that's true or not but I have only come across a few with that number and I've been selling jars for 4 years. I can usually sell a quart jar with the #13 on it for about $15.00. I also found a green Ball Perfect Mason quart jar! I looked up the "sold" listings and they seem to sell from $60-$80!!! I listed mine tonight and started it at $19.95 and it had a bid pretty quickly. I just put it on a 3 day auction because I saw that someone else had listed one tonight too but theirs is on a 7 day auction. Hopefully I will make some good money on it! This picture below shows the difference between the regular blue jars and the green one!
So, not a bad day. I sold $60.35 worth of merchandise. I will figure the profit tomorrow and update the pictures. I got a lot more inventory that hopefully will sell soon! Thanks for stopping by! ~~Pam


  1. I used to have a gazillion Ball jars. I thought they were only worth about $5 each. I remember there was a store in PA that had adapters where you could take the screw lid off and make the jar into a lamp. It was a really cool idea.

    1. I sell my regular Ball Perfect Mason quart jars for about $6.00 each. This green one is rare so that's why it will hopefully go for more money! I've seen lamps made with them too....some with buttons in neat! ~~Pam
