Avon Windjammer Cologne - Paid 10 cents - Sold for $18.95
Profit after fees and packaging - $18.89
I sold this to someone in Japan. I hope all goes well and it makes it there okay. I actually made a little bit on the shipping on this one. I even sent him a partial refund on the shipping as it was less than expected. I figure since the fees are higher with an international purchase that it helps defray that cost. I usually cut it pretty close and don't make too much extra on the shipping.
I was looking at the stats on my Etsy shop this morning. It has been a slow month there for me. So far this month I've only sold $284.15. Last year for the same time period I had sold $760.80! That's quite a bit of difference! I'm thinking it's probably because this year I've been focusing more on Ebay. I have a store now so I've been trying to fill that instead of filling my vintage shop. Things seem to sell faster on Ebay and we really need the money! When I think that I need to get some things on Etsy, then I think to myself....well, this would probably sell quicker on Ebay....so that's what happens! I wish I could keep them both plus my button shop going every day. Ideally I would like to list at least 3 things in each shop each day. Trouble is, just because we really need the money doesn't mean I've suddenly had less to do so that I can list more! We still have 5 kids at home and life is busy! Oh well, all I can do is try to do the best I can.
Hopefully I will have some sales today to update with tonight....if I don't forget!
Thanks for stopping by! ~~Pam
