Got the Jars!

Well, I got my jars....120 of them! When the lady first called she thought she might have 50...then when I called her back the day I was supposed to get them she thought she had around 100....then when we went to pick them up she had 120 total! Good thing I had exactly $120 with me! She had mostly half gallon size which usually doesn't sell as fast but I do sell them for $9 or $10 so that's good! I actually sold  5 half gallons within a day or so and made a profit of $44.30 and then I got an order for 20 half gallons! I just shipped them out yesterday and made a profit of $162.97!!! It sure helps and at least I got our $120 back quickly! I figured that I could probably sell all of the jars for a total of around $ profit would probably be around $800 after figuring the cost of the jars and fees. Not too shabby! Now I just gotta hope they sell soon....we could really use the $800!

I sold this office stamp holder within a few days of listing it. I had put $69.95 or Best Offer on it as it was the only one like it on EBay. I got an offer of $50 and I took it because I didn't want to take a chance that they wouldn't make another offer! I made a profit of $36.45 so not too bad!
