Things are picking up, but I am still concerned about these Christmas sweaters! There is next to no interest. I have only sold one. Yikes.
I have done two deals on Craigslist recently, of two items I purchased on Black Friday.
NEW STUFFED POCOYO PO CO YO PLUSH CUDDLE CUDDLY PILLOW NICK JR HUGE
Paid $12 (Wal*Mart); Sold for $25
Funny story about this guy. I listed him on eBay for like, $35 or best offer. I got an offer of $20 and was not going to have anything to do with such a lowball offer. Then I happened to glance at the potential buyer's zip code and low and behold, she lives in the same city as I do! So we arranged an off eBay transaction. She was planning on paying $20 plus shipping, so we agreed on $25 cash. Super easy! And no fees!
NEW IN BOX 2012 NIB WHITE HASBRO FURBY INTERACTIVE TOY GREMLIN
Paid $45 (Wal*Mart); Sold for $65
Took a gamble on this fella. I remember the original Furby craze of the '90s (I conned my dad into buying me one then, and it was... stupid..) and thought I'd take a chance. Picked this up on Black Friday and knew if it didn't pan out, I could return it. Listed it on eBay with no interest for the first week, and was going to return it, but in typical Amanda fashion, I misplaced the receipt! Decided to list on Craigslist in the meantime. Sold for $65 cash in another easy as pie deal.
These Black Friday items cost more than I normally pay to resell but it was acceptable to me since I had the option to return them to the retailer.
On the eBay front:
NEW NIP SONY PREMIUM GRADE 6 HOUR VHS BLANK TAPE 6 PACK T-120
Paid $1.91 (Ohio Thrift); Sold for $19.00 plus shipping
NIP/blank media has been a consistent seller for me. Even the formats that are outdated go quickly and for good prices. And they are CHEAP to pick up, since they are outdated and thrifts think they are useless.
NEW NIP HUGE STUFFED CAILLOU CUDDLE CUDDLY PILLOW PLUSH OVER 2 FEET TALL
Paid $12 (Wal*Mart); Sold for $25 plus shipping
Another Black Friday pillow. I have one more left- Brobee from Yo Gabba Gabba.
LOT OF 8 VTECH VSMILE VIDEO GAMES CARTRIDGES DORA CARS BLUES CLUES LION KING
Paid $3.50 (VOA); Sold for $19.99 plus shipping
I picked up the set of these games plus a VSmile console on half price day at my favorite thrift. I still have the console which I will try to sell at the spring consignment sale.
Susan Bristol Christmas Cardigan Sweater Size Medium Sz M Ugly Tacky Moose Deer
Paid $3-4??; Sold for $19.99 plus shipping
The lone selling Christmas sweater. I probably could have gotten more for it but I'm desperate since none of these are selling and I've amassed a few dozen. Can't remember how much I paid for this one specifically but it was no more than $5 at most.
NEW NIB LALALOOPSY PLAY AND DISPLAY DOLL COUCH HOT PINK FITS TWO DOLLS SEW CUTE
Paid $4.99 I believe (discount store); Sold for Best Offer $14 plus shipping
NIB NEW FROSTY THE SNOWMAN CARTOON XMAS CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT ON HIS BELLY WITH BOY
