I paid 15.00 for this new bartop table. A designer bought it to stage a model home but the contract got cancelled. I sold it for $50.00. Remember these two pieces?
French dresser and nightstand. I had ask the My Dear Trash readers to help me price these pieces- (See the post here with before pics) Suggestions ranged from $200-$400 with most people averaging 250-300- Well you guys were right. I sold them together for $275.00. If you remember I had invested $150.00- so it's a nice profit. It took 6 weeks to sell these pieces, which is a little longer than usual- I wanted to let you know I've notice craigslist has slowed down for the summer here in Arizona. So, If you have things listed that aren't selling, be patient. Don't be too quick to lower your price during the summer months. Now, on to ebay... I was blessed one day at goodwill to find several new with tags dress pants all in plus sizes for just $1.00 each. They all sold for $8.00 a piece. Here's a few examples...
Dockers size 18 khaki pants
Dockers size 18 chocolate brown career pants.
Bloomingdales size 24 black career pants. I bought 8 or 9 pair that day and they've all sold. Here's some other top sellers...

Ann Taylor size 14 embroidered skirt sold for $16.50.
Lands End size Xl navy blue knit dress sold for $16.92. Super great week- here's the totals...
