5 FAVORITE FINDS THIS WEEK

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

I’ll give you the story that goes with each item, what I paid for it at a local estate auction, and how much I got for it on eBay. Maybe you have some cool auctions in your area and you can do this too!

Snoopy garden flag

  1. garden flag with Snoopy and a pumpkin: I bought an entire box of not new garden flags for 1.00 for the whole box. I sold many of the flags at a flea market for 1.00 each. I kept a few that I thought were nicer and that had a holiday theme. I recently listed 3 “fall” ones on ebay and the Snoopy one sold for 33.99 (I was hoping for about 5.00).
  2. rhinoceros costume: I have a lot of  costumes on eBay right now because I bought over 50 costumes at an estate sale for 1.00 each. I also got some costume parts and pieces for 10/1.00. These were all new-in-the-bag costumes. This rhino costume had an original price on it of 24.99 and I sold it for 16.40 so everyone got a good deal!
  3. Cinderella costume: This was a very nice quality costume that

     I bought a few months ago and put it away for this time of year. I had to wash it since there was dirt on the skirt but it came right out. It was not new but it was in like new condition (after I washed it!). I paid 1.00 for an entire box of clothing and this was in the box, along with a waitress costume, and 2 others (that I also sold). The Cinderella costume sold for 12.06.

  4. brown leather women’s jacket: I bought this at an auction last year and paid 2.00 for it along with 2 other leather jackets for 2.00 each. They all fit me (yea!) so I wore this one for a while and then decided I didn’t need it any more. It sold for 15.50 so someone else also got a great bargain!
  5. Sears catalog from 1966 fall/winter. I paid 2.00 for this and sold it for 13.01. It was in good condition with a little wear. This was an average price for the 60s. I also had a 1970 one that I did not sell, so I am going to list it in my eBay store. If I ever find the Christmas Sears catalogs, I will snatch those up because they can sell on eBay for up to and over 100$ depending on age and condition.

 Hope these examples help you find some bargains or help you price your own JUNK!
