A few months ago I bought a Playskool dollhouse at a yard sale for $15. I knew I wouldn't want to try to ship the big house but I also knew that the dolls and furniture were worth something! I ended up putting the dollhouse on Facebook for $20 to at least make a few dollars extra plus then the person could pick it up and I wouldn't have to ship it!
Paid $15 - Sold for $20 - Profit $5.00

I then sold the furniture that came with it for $14.95 on eBay. I probably should have listed it for more.
Already paid for - Sold for $14.95 - Profit $10.73

Next came the best part.....I sold the dolls!
Already paid for - Sold for $35.00 - Profit $30.35

Then I found another dollhouse just like the first one. I also paid $15 for it. Sold it and the furniture that came with it for $30 on Facebook so I made $15.00 profit. Then I sold the people and car that came with it.
Already paid for - Sold for $34.95 - Profit $30.69

I also realized that I had forgotten to put the railings on the first dollhouse so I listed those as replacement parts.
Already paid for - Sold for $14.95 - Profit $12.55

So, I paid $30 for the 2 dollhouses and accessories. I sold everything for $149.85 and made $104.32 profit! I see some listings where people sell the house and everything with it but it just seemed easier for me to piece it all out and sell the houses right here at home for easy pickup. I have an old Victorian dollhouse that my sister-in-law gave me to sell. Still need to take pictures of it.

Have any of you sold dollhouses? Which way did you list it?

Thanks for stopping by! ~~Pam

Sale of the Week

I know, it's been over a month since I've posted! Time goes so fast and life is soooo busy! Just thought I'd put up a quick post of my best sale for the past week! Found this milk glass rooster at a yard sale for $3.00. Researched it on eBay and at the time there was only one other one and it had sold for around $50. I don't remember how I came up with selling it for $69.95 but that's what I listed it for and it sold! It took a few weeks but it's so fun to sell something for that much more than what you paid for it! I just looked at how much others have sold for in the past few weeks here and some went for the asking price of $50. A few put theirs up for auction and got $20-$45. Anyway, just a quick post! Have a great day! ~~Pam
