This Women's Ann Taylor Size 2 Zebra Print Cotton Dress was just 1.00 and sold for $13.50
I've recently been finding Coldwater Creek travel pieces for $1.00 at the thrift store. The secret to getting multiple bids on these is to add "same material as chico's travelers" in the description- because they are indeed 95% acetate and 5% spandex and are great for travel. That way anyone searching chico's travelers will also see your listing. This Coldwater Creek Size L Floral Travel Skirt sold for $14.00So here's the risky item of the week. I purchased this Diane Von Furstenberg Size M Silk Wrap Dress for $30.00 at a second hand shop. Diane Von is the designer who created the wrap dress back in the 60's and her items do very well on ebay. This risk paid off when the dress sold for $82.23. Over $50.00 profit and I only had to list 1 item. I've got some other risky items listed, (my 40.00 investment item hasn't sold yet!) hope I can share a happily ever after story again with you next week. Let's see how I did for the week.
Costs: 50.00(clothes), 49.31(ebay fees), 48.66(paypal fees)
Total Profit: $121.74
Small week- but I learned so much. Sometimes it pays to take risks and sometimes it doesn't. I think I will definitely be sticking to selling only clothing ... unless I happen to see something super special. Wish me luck. Love, Kelly
