Last October I bought about 40 different vintage Avon decanters for 10 cents each. I knew that old Avon sells slow but for 10 cents each I almost couldn't pass it up! Since then I have made a profit of $124 on what I've sold! I still have quite a few pieces left...I even have some left to list. It's not a ton of money, and each sale is usually a small profit of $5-$10 but as usual, every little nickel and dime adds up! These are my sales for the past couple of days:
Avon Somewhere Cologne
Paid 10 cents - Sold for $10.00 - Profit $7.90
This next item is an old folder from J & K Button Company here in Muscatine, Iowa. I guess they were sample buttons that companies could order from. I probably got it at a yard sale a couple of years ago and had it put away and forgot about it till this year. I thought it was neat and maybe would sell to some kind of button collector. I started it at $10 and got one bid. Guess it wasn't as neat to other people!
Sample Button Folder
Paid ? - Sold for $10.00 - Profit $7.61
These next 2 items are part of a 5 piece set that my 16 yr. old daughter spotted at a sale. They had $10 on the set and she asked them if they'd take $5 and they did! She's a good haggler!
Short Flatbed Car w/ Caterpillar Bull-Dozer
Paid $1.00 - Sold for $7.50 - Profit $6.25
Cen-Pe-Co Train Car
Paid $1.00 - Sold for $10.00 - Profit $8.01
I went to Goodwill this afternoon and got a couple of plush items and 2 sets of VHS tapes....a 3 tape set of Star Wars and a 5 tape set of Lucy....hopefully they will sell!
Thanks for stopping by! ~~Pam
