Trash to Cash Wednesday

Incredible Ebay Week!!!! Let's take a look at some of the top sellers...As much as we all don't get it, denim overalls are a great seller on ebay. However, they do take a back seat during the summer. These S.L.A. size L denim cargo overalls didn't sell the first few weeks, now that it's cooling off (In some areas of the World) they sold for $10.00.
These Old Navy size M denim overalls sold for $12.50. But, don't forget how well dress sell...This Tahari size XS black wrap dress sold for $15.50. Now, let's talk about some new name brands. My sister asked me to list a few items for her. This Belldini size XL animal print knit top sold for $10.47

Now you know I don't usually sell men's clothing on ebay, but here's a few more items I listed for my sister. This men's Polo by Ralph Lauren size M argyle sweater sold for $16.99

I had never heard of Fred Perry before, but my sister and her husband love vintage clothing and this is a hit in that crowd. This size XL Fred Perry Polo Shirt sold for $25.00.
Another new brand to me, this Nat Nast size M silk jacket sold for $39.99. Hopefully this gives everyone a few new names to look for. So, I said it was an incredible week- Let's take a look...

Ebay Sales: $759.74 (This is definitely a new record)
I did have a cost of $150 for the clothing items I listed, but this is still an amazing profit. I'm a little behind on calculating my ebay and paypal fees- but I'll make sure I get it all up to date for next week. Hope this motivates those of you contemplating becoming an ebay seller- This is a great time with school shopping, change of season and you can list up to 100 items free until Sept. 7. I'll be starting a new challenge in January for our latest family vacation- can't wait to tell you about it. In the meantime, my profits will be paying for a new computer, piano lessons for 2 of my girls, college admission application fees for my 17 year old, and life. Love, Kelly.
