Always Say "Yes" to Free Stuff Part 3

Hello! Just a short post today as I'm running behind and out of time! Still gotta couple of orders to get ready!

A couple of months ago one of my sisters gave me this beautiful afghan that she had made for her in-laws probably 20 or more years ago. They had used it a long time and are now downsizing so they had given back to my sister. She didn't want it either so she gave it to me to sell! It almost seems like a sin to sell something that someone spent so much time on! I thought about keeping it myself but decided to list it instead. I researched crocheted afghans and came up with the price of $49.95. It's not a huge blanket...more of a lap size. It sold within a week or so of listing.

Handmade Crocheted Afghan
Free - Sold for $49.95 - Profit $42.88

Another item the same sister gave me were these shoes. They were in okay shape, not like new but not real worn either. So for these two items that she gave me I made $55.59!
Nike Shoes
Free - Sold for $15.00 - Profit $12.71

I have another sister who I've mentioned on my blog before. Naomi Lynn.....she has given me lots to sell and I've featured those items before. I haven't sold anything lately that she's given me but I have finally been listing a box of jeans and shirts she gave me over a year ago! I'm sure some of that will be selling soon! Thank you Naomi! If you haven't checked out her stationery shop on Etsy you might want to do that....she's a wonderful designer! She actually has two shops with two different kinds of styles. Here's a link to her Frieda Katherine shop!

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


  1. Oh that afghan is beautiful! I can see why you would have wanted to keep it for yourself instead of listing it since your sister made it.
    Hope you are having a great week.

    1. Thanks Rhonda! She actually had one she had made for herself that she had stowed away and wasn't using so now I'm selling that one too! I put a higher price on it but it hasn't sold yet. Hope you're having a good week too! Thanks! ~~Pam

  2. I love your title to this series!
