    Bought some My Little Pony Ponyville buildings and eight ponies for $2 at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago. Researched them on ebay and set Buy it Now price at $24.99 and they sold within the hour! So fun!

    I’ve had several good flips this month. A Little Tikes dollhouse and accessories that I bought for my kids a few years ago for about $20 at a household sale, I sold for $119. 12 tins of Altoid discontinued mints that I bought for $21.50, I sold all 12 for $71. New Keen shoes bought at Goodwill for $15 sold for $76. Dansko shoes bought at Goodwill for $6.00 sold for $33.00. Not too bad I think!

    I got a pair of mens Mephisto sandals for about $1.50. I put them out there for $85 and they sold in less than 24 hours! I would have prices them higher if it had been summer but I wasn’t sure about this time of year. Now I know they sell any time!

    I was having some serious withdrawals from Flippin’ Fridays and everyones stories.

    The best one I had this week came from an estate sale I went to a few weekends ago with great prices, I bought 3 big boxes of stuff. One box was full of what looked like vintage crafting magazines. I asked how much they were asking for each, looking forward to going through and picking some good ones. They said the whole box for $1. Well, yeah, sure!

    When I got home I started going through them, a few random things on top, then near the bottom was a bunch of ones called Golden Hands I had never heard of. They were really lovely covers from the 60s and 70s and covered needlework, sewing, and of course knitting.

    I checked the completed on eBay and the individuals weren’t flying off the shelves or anything, a few partial lots had done ok. So I decided to just list all of them $15 since I had the complete set of 75 and see how it goes.

    They were bid up to $35 and they are paid for and shipped off. Not bad for $1 investment.

    On the same day those sold I also had a XXL mens cashmere sweater that I bought for $5 sell for $45. That was a really good wednesday.

    I have a great flip story. I bought a small white Shenango China Restaurant Plate that said White Crown Hamburger at the top of it for 50 cents. Took me several weeks to list it. I used it as a back drop to take pictures of jewelry to list on ebay. Listed it on a Friday and by Saturday I had two people wanting me to do a buy it now and one man wanted me to call him and sell it to him because it was going to be for his wife’s birthday. Neither person would give me a price, so I told them I would let it play out since I didn’t know much about it and had no idea how much to ask. Tried to research it and couldn’t find any information on White Crown Hamburger. Had listed the plate with a starting price of $4.95. By the end of the week I had a lot of watchers and lots of hits but no one had bid on the plate. Finally the last day of the listing someone placed a bid. 5 minutes before the time was up it was up to $14.95. Thought well that’s pretty good for a 50 cent plate. Checked what it sold for after the auction close and had to do a double take. It sold for $153.51. Wow!!! Learned a lesson always let the auction play out unless you know exactly what the item is worth. I probably would have taken $50.00 for the plate for the buy it now if they would have come up with a price.
