My love celebrated his 28th birthday about a week and a half ago. I tried my hand at making him an X-Box cake. I think it turned out decently. It would have been better if I had been patient enough to wait for the cake to cool, but alas. It was delicious nonetheless.
I have been mostly absent from eBay these past few months. I have plans to be in full swing for Christmas. We'll see how that goes. Here's my most recent sales:
SANDRA BOYNTON COFFEE MUG IT'S JUST ONE DAM PROJECT AFTER ANOTHER BEAVER TEA CUP
Sold for $12.00 + $7.00 shipping; paid probably 59 cents. I'd been looking for Boynton mugs for over a year and what are the odds that I found two at different stores in about a week's timeframe.
VINTAGE GREEN GUCCI SNAKESKIN BRACELET BANGLE 24KT GOLD PLATED FIRENZE ITALY
Sold for $49.99 + $3.00 shipping; this one was so close to having a $1.00 price tag slapped on it and being sold at my garage sale! Fortunately my intuition told me to check "Firenze Italy bracelet". Ends up this is a Gucci. Then I remembered my mom telling me my grandmother had brought it back from her trip to visit the Pope in Rome some 20+ years ago. IDK how much it originally cost, but it's all profit for me.
Wilton Ballet Slippers Ballerina Recital Dance Shoes 2105-2065 Cake Pan Mold
Sold for $15.99 + $7.30 shipping; picked up with a bunch of other items for probably $10 total at a donation church sale.
3 Disney Higglytown Heroes Plush Dolls Bean Bags Squirrel Eubie Wayne Fran Kip
Sold for $10.00 (Best Offer) + $3.00 shipping; paid 90 cents for all at VOA. Originally snagged them thinking they were Little Einsteins.
NEW NIB CENTENNIAL OLYMPICS MONOPOLY BOARD GAME 1996 ATLANTA GA GEORGIA USA
Sold for $12.99 plus $8.00 shipping; paid $3.00 at GW. Originally sold to an annoying guy who left me negative feedback for trying to cancel his transaction without refunding him first. UM. Cancelling the transaction automatically refunds the money. He denied my cancellation request then emailed eBay saying I must be upset that I sold this game for less than it's worth. Yeah, cuz I spent so much on it. *eyeroll* Anyway it sold problem-free to another buyer.
LOT OF 5 SHEETS VINTAGE SCRATCH N SNIFF INNOCENT MOODIE STICKERS BABY POWDER
Sold for $3.99 + $3.00 shipping; picked up a bag of 75 sheets of these stickers at a consignment store for $9.99. Still have 70 sheets left!
And finally... add this one to your BOLO list!
NEW WITH TAG 2001 RED JELLO JELL-O JELLY BEANS SHOTS JIGGLERS CANDY MOLD
Sold for $9.99 + $3.00 shipping; paid $1.99 at Ohio Thrift.
It was the 2nd time I'd sold one of these. The most exciting part is it sold within hours of being listed. I literally listed it, took a nap, and woke up to the sale!
Happy Thrifting to you, till we meet again.
