Our Best Week Ever On Ebay ! 35 Items Sold for $659.00

Just a quick post this week to let you know what's happening with us, we sold 35 items last week for $659.00 on ebay. No sales on etsy or amazon but that's ok. We have been busy as a one legged cat in a sandbox for the last week and that is great but I know May is coming and that is normally when our sales come screeching to a halt.

Clothing and shoes continues to dominate our sales and that's just because it's about the only thing you can get in this area. We continue to look for new product sources.

Our Listings are sitting at 744 which is pretty good considering all the sales we have had this month, 67 so far. As I was writing this we just got a sale on etsy so that was cool. That was the first time I actually got to hear the etsy CHA CHING, lol, it's a little different from the ebay cha ching but still a great sound to hear.

We got out of our flea market booth today, it's just not worth it. That booth was costing us 35.00 a month and we only made enough to just pay for the booth for the last couple of months. I feel like I can put my flea market time and money into etsy and do much better so that's the plan. The fact I got an etsy cha ching just now was really just by chance, the plans had already been made.

We are kinda on the fence with Amazon, the fee's are just so high and the shipping credit so unfair. I shipped a doll Wednesday was a week ago and they only gave me 4.99 for the shipping and the little darling was kind of heavy so it cost me like 12.00 to ship so I lost about 7 bucks on shipping.

I dunno, we continue to look at Amazon as a possible but to be honest, I like etsy better. That's it for now, gotta get back to work, oh yeah we have found we can do 20 listings a day if we really work at it so that's new. As a matter of fact I have 20 drafts to complete now so I gotta get back to it.

See Ya !
Tony

    2. Maybe it was due to having your selling limits raised; that's my theory, at least.
