Trash To Cash Wednesday & A Linky Party

I'm finally back in the ebay game! After the wedding, a senior graduating high school and a senior trip to California, it feels good to be back on schedule. Here's my top sellers of the week...
Women's Anthropologie Robin K. Size M Knit Tank Top sold for $16.50
Women's Fresh Produce Size M Pink Floral Knit Dress sold for $16.72Women's Fresh Produce Size M Blue Dragonfly Knit Dress sold for $20.01
Women's New With Tags Lane Bryant Size 14/16 Peach Linen Top sold for $20.50
Women's Anthropologie Trinity Size M Bird Print Top sold for $20.50

Women's Fresh Produce Size M Bright Blue Knit Dress $22.65
And my top seller of the week was this Chico's Travelers Size 2 (Lg) black Graphic Skirt that sold for $38.06. Most of these items were picked up for $1.00 at yard sales and thrift stores, with the exception of the fresh produce dresses. I took a risk and bought all 3 for 50% off at a thrift store for a total of 15.97. I was able to sell them for a total of 59.38- so the risk paid off! Something new we'd like to try at My Dear Trash is to run a linky party each Wednesday so you can share your trash to cash stories. I will just be sharing my top selling items, as opposed to showing all of my costs and profits- sorry- this takes a huge amount of time and I'd like to invest more time with my family as they are home for the summer. We love to hear your success stories too, so link up below. We'll run the link all week and feature our favorites next week. Love, Kelly.

Please remember to add our link to your page and become a Follower! Also, we welcome all types of links: recipes (you could earn some cash if you sold it right?), projects, crafts, furniture redo's- the skies the limit!


  1. Whew I'm glad you back on ebay! Something I've learned recently as a buyer- not related to your post. When the seller prints out the shipping labels through ebay and does so within a fast time frame when it comes time for me to leave feedback the two last options to star (1-5 stars) regarding shipping are grayed out. So I think printing your shipping labels and shipping them via the ebay way will help prevent you from having people give you low stars on shipping when you've done nothing wrong.

  2. I have you listed as a favorite seller on Ebay. And recieved an alert that you had items listed. I wanted to kick my heels up in the air for you and yell "Hallelujah". Perhaps the Lord gave you a little break what with the wedding & graduation and knew you might not take the time to rest. Glad things getting back to somewhat normal. God is Good!

  3. Wow! How did you get back on? I thought you were banned for life!
    Great week in sales! I have yet to find any Fresh Produce or Anthropologie but when I do I'll be sure to buy it.
    Love the link up idea! Looking forward to seeing others successes as well yours each week.

  4. *****I got you two mixed up again, didn't I!!!!!
    Sorry, I need to pay more attention to who is writing the post.

  5. Mary,
    Thanks for the encouraging words, but it's Laura who was removed from ebay. I have just been too busy to post and have finally gotten back on schedule. Thanks for the comment.
