Only two more weeks before The Big Challenge Ends! My goal to raise $4,000 through ebay and craigslist to take my family to Florida is in near sight. I've really got to pull out all the stops these last two weeks. Here's this weeks ebay top sellers:We picked up these Gap size 4 bootcut black leather pants for $1.00 at a garage sale. I was happy to see that, although summer is here, they sold for $9.99.These Old Navy size 12 overalls didn't sell last week for $9.99, but this week sold for 11.56.
I had this Ann Taylor Petites size 4 skirt listed for 3 weeks with no success. Imagine my surprise when it sold this week with multiple bids for $12.50
These Gap Curvy low rise size 18 jeans sold for $12.00.
I had never heard of the brand Tahari before. But these size 4 jeans sold for 13.01. Overall, it was a great week on ebay. Craigslist, on the other hand, seems to be running a little slow lately. That seems to happen every few weeks- so hopefully this weekend will mean big sales. Remember the little tikes activity gym I picked up for $5.00?
A little google research showed this sold for around $50.00 new, but the research also showed that now you can only get these in the UK. Because little tikes holds its' value so well I decided to list it at $40.00- It sold in just a few hours. Even when craigslist is slow you can always sell little tikes. So how did I fare this week. Well, last week I spend $115 buying clothes to put on ebay. I didn't get them all listed so that took a big cut on my profits- Now they're all on, so hopefully next week I'll have a big return. Wish me luck. Love, Kelly.
