Sales Update

Just a few sales this past week. I bought these 7 dwarfs squeaky toys a couple of months ago thinking they might really be worth something. Got home and checked them out and realized they probably weren't going to bring me much. I had paid $1.00 each for them...what was I thinking?!! They are cute though! I guess at least I made a few bucks on them.

I bought these cute animal dominoes a couple of months ago and finally listed them a few days ago...they sold pretty quickly! Should have gotten them listed sooner!

I don't have very many jars left. My Etsy shop is slowing way down without them. I wonder if I should just start taking everything that expires on Etsy and list it on eBay? The jars sell for more on Etsy but if I don't have many jars what's the point? I'm selling lots more stuff on eBay and it would be nice to get my listing total up higher....I guess it's something to think about!

I grouped this next set of magazines together because they were in a little bit of a rough shape and they were all from the same year. I sold them to someone in Germany! They originally paid about $37 in shipping but I must have weighed them wrong to begin with and they weren't as heavy as I had thought so I ended up refunding them a little over $10 on the shipping. Still... a lot of money to get these old magazines across the sea!

Well, that's about it. Thanks for stopping by! ~~Pam


  1. Way to go on those magazines! I bought a giant box of greeting cards for $2 and I've been listing those in lots. I sold one lot of religious Christmas cards for $19.99. I was shocked! It's June!

    1. Sounds like you got a great deal on the cards! Hope you make lots on them! ~~Pam

  2. How are you shipping the magazines? I am just wondering if they need extra packaging because of their age?

    1. I just wrap them in some sturdy wrapping paper and then mail them in a bubble mailer. Haven't had any complaints yet so they must make it through okay! ~~Pam

  3. Way to go on those magazines. And i love the Vintage Animal dominoes. I would have listed them too, but probably after we played with them..I wouldn't be able to resist!
