Friday's Sales

Lot of Game Pieces
Paid ? - Sold for $8.50 - Profit

8 Blue Ball Pint Jars
Paid $8.00 - Sold for $56.00 - Profit $45.89
I've been collecting odds and ends game pieces for quite awhile knowing that they will sell. These are just from games we've had over the years. I started them at $10 but nothing ever happened so I lowered them to starting at $8.50. I got one bid. I was hoping for more but I guess a little bit for something that's just been sitting around is okay. I printed shipping and then realized they hadn't paid yet! Don't know what I was thinking! I will wait to mail it out till I get paid, that's for sure!
It's frustrating to me when someone asks for specific things like a custom order for jars and then they take days to pay! This order for the 8 pint jars went okay, it's just that it took a few days. The order for 30 jars is still in limbo...she said she would pay Tuesday or Wednesday so by Thursday night I sent her a message to see if she still wanted them. She got right back to me and said yes, she would pay Friday. So far, no pay! I guess it's just frustrating because I need to know if I can count on that money coming in! If I didn't need the money I would tell her the offer of free shipping expires today! Well, enough of my complaining!
After my busy day the other day I fizzled out yesterday and didn't accomplish much of anything! So today I need to get busy....thanks for stopping by! ~~Pam


  1. I would get frustrated if someone asked for something specific & then did not pay too. I even get annoyed when someone does a buy it now & does not pay for a couple days.

    1. I get annoyed by that too! It's like what are they waiting on? If I buy something now, I pay for it now! Of course that was when we had! Now I just don't buy anything! :) ~~Pam

  2. How about the buyers who take their time paying you, but expect the item to be shipped out ASAP?! I-Yi- Yi!


    1. Yeah, crazy isn't it? Or the buyers that might pay right away but then let you know they "need" it in 2 days! What not ask first if that is even possible? Crazy! ~~Pam

  3. People are funny. Yesterday I was sitting at a red light in town. Lots of traffic and people all around. There was a couple on the corner. They couldn't make up their mind what they wanted to do or where they wanted to go. They were looking around, lah dee dah. Finally, they stepped onto the crosswalk at the very same time the light turned green. But of course! They looked at me like deer caught in the headlights as I waited for them to proceed, but they backed up and waved me on. So what's my point? People think they know what they want, but they really don't. They think they need things in a hurry, but they really don't. They just expect things instantly because that's what our society has taught them.
