Week 5 Selling Full Time on eBay

Great week for us,

eBay Sales - 351.00

Contract Work - 120.00
Flea Market - 20.00

Total For Week - $491.00

That is pretty good for us, we still have under 500 items listed as things are continuing to sell as I list them. We sold 22 items with an average sale price of 16.00 each.  That's not the price point we want but we did take many best offers which helped our week.

We Sold a rare motor head book for $70.00 (best sale), we sold lots of clothes ( jeans and mens shirts) and trucker hats.

This month I have a 700 item goal so lets see how close I can get to that.

I'm still having a hard time getting away from the thrift stores, we have been pretty exclusive to thrift stores since we started doing this but we have on rare occasions gone to yard sales and really get better stuff and better deals at the yard sales but its waiting on the weekend to get there I have a problem with since I can go thrifting everyday and our yard sales only happen on the weekends.

Me and my wife made a pact that we would ban thrifting for 2 months and only do yard sales and estate sales during that time but I have decided it would be best to do both and only buy stuff we KNOW will sell for 20+ dollars.

Just gotta keep on keeping on :-)

Thanks as always for reading my blog, it's not as exciting as some but it's the reality of whats happening with us. 

Later !

PS. Here is a tip, anything related to crab fishing is pretty hot right now. I find a few of these crabber shirts and hats and they sell as fast as I can put them up.


  1. You're right. It's tough to wait for the weekends to buy stuff and sometimes there's not much out there. It takes time and there's a lot of disappointment when the HUGE sale turns out to be one table of crap.
    But then there are those days when it seems you are getting great deals at every sale.

  2. so unpredictable. I need a crystal ball :-)
