I hope everyone is staying nice and warm! It's been freezing here the past few days! I just wanted to do an update since my last post. I have had 21 sales this past week! These Born shoes were the highest profit of the eBay sales.
Born Mary Jane Shoes
Paid $8.88 - Sold for $27.50 - Profit $16.68
For jar sales I had an order for 10 of these half gallon jars with a profit of $72.15 on those. I ended up selling 28 jars total this past week for a total profit on them of $190.60!
On with the magazines! I sold 3 this past week bringing my magazine profits up to $640.89! I have definitely figured out that the sporting magazines like "Hunting and Fishing" sell better than say the "Farming" magazines. I wish I had more of these but I only have a few left. I do have LOTS of the Farming ones so hopefully there is a collector out there somewhere! I did have a guy recently buy some magazines from me and I checked his store and he sells the advertisements from the magazines! He has thousands of them in his store and it looks like he does pretty good! Maybe I should take that up instead of selling the whole magazine!
So, those are the highlights from the past 9 days. Here's the breakdown since Feb. 11th:
Items Sold - 21
Total Gross sales - $437.95
Cost of inventory sold - $44.27
Total profit after fees and packing supplies - $346.12
Average price sold - $20.85 per order
New inventory bought - $112.68 ($60.50 for buttons...yikes! )
New items listed so far - 102.....I might actually make my goal this month!!!!
I need to try really hard to get my profit up to at least $500/week. Those numbers above are for 9 days so actually that would figure out at about $269/week average. Gotta work harder!
Thanks for stopping by! ~~Pam
