Trash To Cash Wednesday!

This was a super slow week on ebay, with most items that sold receiving only one bid. With the holidays being so close I imagine the next few weeks will be the same. What did sell this week were dresses! Let's take a look at my top sellers... This Ann Taylor Loft size 4 petite black dress sold for $8.00
This Express Size S black knit wrap dress also sold for $8.00
This Spense Size 16 Black & White Polka Dot Dress sold for $8.00
This Tommy Hilfiger Size 4 Tan Halter Dress sold for $9.00
And the only item this week that received multiple bids was Anthropologie's Bizz Size Large Brown Dress. It sold for $12.02. Here's the weeks totals...

Ebay Profits:$256.48
Craigslist Profits:0
Costs: 25.00(clothes), 28.48(ebay fees), 14.31 (paypal fees)
Total Profit: $188.69

If things are a little slow for you, don't worry, they will pick up again after the holidays- In the meantime, I know I'm enjoying the break I have with less items to ship! Another positive note is that I sold ALL of my craigslist items at the estate sale this weekend! Let us know how your sales are going- go ahead- leave a comment, we love to hear from you. Love, Kelly.


  1. Funny: Ive resold that same dress in the first picture!If it had been a larger size I would've kept it for myself. I thought it was a really neat dress:)

  2. It's the slow season. I actually stop selling now and enjoy the holidays. We'll be on vacation the first two weeks of January also. I'll start up again mid January/early February. That seems to be the time when ebay shoppers are back and ready to bid! Good luck until then and Happy Holidays.

  3. hey! love love love the blog! i read it almost every day!! how come you never opened an ebay store? i am looking into opening one, but i dont know anything about them. do you??? i would love to hear back from you!! happy holidays!

  4. Anonymous,
    I haven't opened a store because it's not financially beneficial for me. I generally only post 1 picture in my listings and with the free 100 listings a month (you don't receive this benefit if you have a store) it is more expensive to have a store with no benefit for the type of listings I do. You can learn more about having an ebay store by going here Thanks for reading My Dear Trash!

  5. Well I think we all agree, unless your selling Toys for Christmas, it has been a slow week. I too will take a break until mid January. Wait the free 100 listings expires sometime around the 7th of January I think. So I may list earlier.........Merry Christmas!

  6. Beautiful dresses! At the moment, I really love wearing them myself. So if I find some in my size, I think they'll make a home here, rather than elsewhere. ;)
