Trash To Cash Wednesday!

What a crazy week its been - and it's only wednesday! I've got another estate sale this weekend (will post details tomorrow) and ebay has really been busy. Let's take a look at this weeks top sellers...
Women's Papell Boutique Size 10 Green Silk Skirt sold for $10.61
I picked up a few Anthropologie items this past week and they all did really well. This Women's Anthropologie Floreat Size 2 Yellow Skirt sold for $15.61
Women's Ann Taylor Loft Size 6P Teal Wrap Dress sold for $19.50
Women's Anthropologie Persaman Size 4 Burgundy Skirt sold for $21.65
And this Women's Anthropologie Floreat Size 0 Embroidered Skirt sold for $31.01. Now I thought my week was over- I did fairly well considering I only had listed 40 new items, so I started listing my next weeks items on Monday morning. Imagine my surprise when this fur shrug sold as a buy it now in the first few minutes...
I picked up this Vintage Mink Shrug at a garage sale a few weeks back for $5. I thought it would be great at the shop and I'd probably price it at $25. With a little research on ebay I discovered this style and color sell for a little more, so I decided to list it on ebay. Even though the starting bid was only $29.99 the buyer opted for the buy it now price of $99.00! This is why we do what we do! Every once in a while you find one of those items that gets the adrenaline going and keeps things exciting! I've got another "risky wild card" listed right now! Can't wait to let you know how that one does. Here's my weeks totals...

Ebay Total:$446.85
Costs: 54.00(clothes), 45.80(ebay fees), 25.97(paypal fees)
Total Profit: $321.08

I'm super happy with this weeks profits! Check back tomorrow for details on my next estate sale. Love, Kelly.


  1. So glad you had a great week. And those were some REALLY cute clothes you sold. Amazes me that you find them at Goodwill.

    However, I'm not gonna lie when I say...I REALLy miss your furniture re-dos and Craigslist selling. Just saying.

  2. I had my eye on that size o anthropogie skirt and Laura's green corduroy anthropologie. However I had to be responsible and buy some school books. They are bought now so can you list some more anthropologie so I can be irresponsible????

  3. Sometimes it's worth taking a chance on an item over 1.00. Fantastic week for you! I am happy for you!
