I recently found this little cherry wood vanity at a yard sale.
The home owner was asking $10.00. Next to the vanity was a brand new box of
Berry perfume. Halle
"Would you throw in the perfume too?” I asked.
The homeowner agreed, so I had the vanity and
perfume for $10.00. Halle Berry
perfume sells for new around $30.00. What a deal! Halle Berry
I came home and photographed the vanity. I didn’t clean it or anything. Remember, most of the time I’m an as-is kinda girl. I posted the vanity on Craigslist for $40.00. It sold the same day for $40.00.
So, what did I do with my $30.00 profit?
I found this darling owl out thrifting for $1.99.
I’ve been in love with this owl from Anthropologie,
but it’s $138.00. I think the owl I found at the thrift store is cuter, plus mine is real vintage.
At Goodwill, I found Eden a boutique white linen Easter dress for $2.99.
I’m sure it was more then $2.99 when purchased new. Funny thing, it looks brand new. Not a spot on it.
I also found this Arcadia Italian leather bag. I found out this bag retails for around $400.00 by clicking here.
I paid $7.99. Score! I’ve really wanted a huge leather loud bag, but haven’t been able to find one I could afford. In the old days, I may have put a find like this on eBay, but I’m so happy to keep it all for myself.
I found this Stella McCartney Italian skirt at the thrift store for $2.50.
New, Stella McCartney skirts sell for a lot more then $2.50. I’ve listed it on craigslist for $40.00 and I’ll let you know how it sells. This is the first article of clothing I’ve tried to sell post-eBay saga.
I found these toll-painted red vintage clogs out thrifting for $3.00. Can’t wait to take them down to the shop and list them for $24.50.
So far I’ve spent $18.50 of my $30.00 profit from the vanity.
Last, but not least, I found this gorgeous Foreign Accents rug for $12.00 while out thrifting and love it in the boys' room.
I did a little research and found the exact same rug for $998.00 here. I couldn’t order one on the website if I wanted to because they are on backorder. So glad I found mine at the thrift store.
So, I made a $30.00 profit off my vanity and spent it on trash that turned into over $1,000.00 of merchandise.
Taking trash to the next level, wouldn't you say.
