Busy, Busy!

I've had a busy few days since I last posted! I've had 17 sales in 4 days!! I think that might be a record for me! I have really been trying to list lots. I've taken tons of pictures and almost need to take a ton more!
Here's what I've done since Friday:
Friday - listed 3 items totaling $21.95
              sold 5 items totaling $102.90
Saturday - listed 2 items totaling $9.75 (buttons)
                 sold 3 items totaling $28.00
Sunday - listed 3 items totaling $75.40
               sold 6 items totaling $102.60
Monday - listed 7 items totaling $121.85
                sold 2 items totaling $30.90
Today I listed $97.40 and have only sold one thing for $25.95 (so far)
I have listed $855.40 worth of stuff so far this month so for 10 days that's an average of $85.54/day so not too far off from my $100/day goal! I'll have to try harder though! Here's what sold:

My total profits on the old magazines is up to $617.82!!! I bought about 300 old magazines in May of 2014 and paid $36.00. I've sold 89 magazines so far so that figures out at a profit of $6.94 each which doesn't seem like a lot but it does add up! Still have lots of magazines listed and lots to list too!

Well, it's really late and that's about it for now! Thanks so much for stopping by! ~~Pam


  1. Pam, you sure have scored on those magazines. That was a super buy. Have a great week. Happy Valentine's Day! Dianne

    1. Thanks Deanie! I'm definitely making a profit on them, even if it's a little at a time! ~~Pam

  2. Great sales! I love the refrigerator dishes! I have a thing about cool containers so I would have been tempted to keep those.

    1. Deana, I have been tempted to keep so many things I've found but the temptation and need of money always wins out! :) ~~Pam

  3. Great sales. I love the refrigerator dishes too. I've never seen any in enamelware. Your magazine sales are exciting. Good buy that was.

    1. Thanks Nancy! I was definitely questioning myself about those magazines but it turned out good! ~~Pam

  4. Wow you are on a roll! That is terrific. I have been so lazy about listing lately, it's the picture part that I procrastinate with. I need to learn a lesson form your success & get busy!

    1. Well, we'll see how long this "roll" lasts...lol. I am definitely a procrastinator but I've really been trying to push myself because we need to have more income! I'm not crazy about taking pictures either! ~~Pam

  5. Great job Pam. Keep on listing!! You are the Blue Ball Jar Queen for sure. I see them at estate sales, etc. But the asking price is full retail. No money to be made in reselling. I like your strategy of putting out an ad. Glad to see those magazines are still selling. Very nice score!
