    Hi! I’m a long time lurker, first time poster. My favorite flip – AVB-1 Crew’s Book 1960-1961 USS Alameda County deployment book military yearbook -(pd .50 cents) $45.00 Sold within hours of listing-should have asked for more? Who knows?

      Thanks for linking that flip! There are many retired military personnel (and their estate sales!) here in San Antonio – it’s good to know that kind of memorabilia has value.

    Three good book sales on Amazon recently – The Cat Book (a Golden Shape Book) – paperback, copyright 1962 (50 cents) sold $9.95. Christian Ethics: An Introductory Reader (my daughter’s textbook from 2 years ago) $59.00 with second-day shipping paid by buyer. Nineteenth-Century Scientific Instruments ($1) $54.95. Second time I sold that book – the first time the buyer was in Rome and once I researched shipping to Italy, I canceled the order. I’ve had good luck offering expedited shipping on college textbooks – it seems students need those books now or even yesterday!

    Today I sold a set of 4 Vera Neumann vinyl placemats on eBay ($1) for $15 plus shipping. I do a happy dance every time I spot Vera at a sale. Didn’t even know what it was until Crate and Barrel reissued some of her designs a few years ago.

    This week’s great sales:
    Webkinz Peppermint Puppy with Tags(code) paid $1.91 sold for $24! Eddie Bauer Shopping cart cover New in packages paid $2 sold for $27. Kermit Build a Bear (no tags) but in mint condition. Paid $5 sold for $50! McCalls 25 vintage sewing magazines bought for $3 for the whole lot sold for $30. I’m definitely motivated to list the rest of my loot. Ebay has 500 free BIN listings right now…great time to list!

    I found a black down filled Cloudveil woman’s vest at GW for 2.00. Brought it home and of course if fit my daughter and she wanted to keep it. Damn! There goes a great sale. I mean come on, I love her and it looked good on her but I know all you resellers would have been thinking the same thing 🙂 A few days later she told me that she didn’t like it that much and I could sell it (fickle teenagers) but good for me, sold it for 30.00 in less than 4 days! Also sold mens Harley Davidson board shorts. Paid 7 sold for 30, a vintage Rainbow Brite doll, paid .99, sold for 14.99, and a vintage Meyercord decal of a bunny, (found a whole box of them when cleaning out a foreclosed house, my third job, so cost was free) sold for 25.00. Lastly I sold two Hawaiian shirts, one size 4XL and one size 5XL. Paid 4.50 for each and they sold for 25.00 each. Love those big men’s shirts!

    My two best flips this past week: a Canon PowerShot S3 IS camera, paid $12, sold for $45. A pair of vintage wool Berle Black Watch plaid trousers, paid $4 sold for $45. Otherwise, it’s been kind of slow… Hopefully this coming week will do well for me! I have another camera listed (Olympus OM-1 MD) that should be a good flip.

    Yesterday I sold an old paper Disneyland ticket for $45! I paid $6 for a table full of items at an auction and it was included. I have long since sold the other stuff and paid for it. All profit = whahoo!

    my husband had these pirate boots and they are/were ridiculous–he was a reenactor a long time ago and these boots were part of a get-up—-I despised them until he said sell them and I did for 295$ now I love them and wish I had more
    also sold a pair of new w/tags mens XXXXL jeans 50×32 I accepted a BO of 28 dollars for them the shipping was calculated by weight and the buyer kept posting in his offers the shipping was too high—well it’s by weight and they WEIGH a LOT so I ignored him and figured if he wanted them he would get them and he did in the end

    I also sold a vintage Holly Hobbie Panel for 25 dollars–it came in a HUGE bag of panels I bought a LONG time ago for around a dollar shipped it to Australia and off it goes!
