NORTH FACE JACKET-PROFIT $16.13

I found this girl’s North Face fleece jacket size small 7/8 at Goodwill for $1.59 including tax.  The North Face is a brand that resells great, if you find anything North Face buy it.  This jacket was so cute and in great condition.  I listed it in a 7 day auction starting at $9.99 plus $5.99 shipping.  I had 61 views, 8 bids, and it sold for $24.49 including shipping.

CHRISTIAN DIOR-PROFIT $10.64

I found this Christian Dior vintage men’s sweater at my local Goodwill new with tags for $4.27 including tax.  Even though this sweater was new with tags it had some storage wear on the sleeve, so unfortunately it was not perfect, if it was I think it would have sold for a lot more.  Regardless I listed it in a 7 day auction starting at $14.99 plus $5.99 shipping, I had 63 views, 3 bids, and it sold for a total of $21.99 including shipping.

TIP: I was unsure if this sweater was going to sell when I bought it, one it had a defect and two it was old.  Don’t be afraid of a defect if the item is cool enough and vintage designer items sell.  Now I know I don’t have to think twice when I come across items like this.  However I don’t know if this sweater should have been auctioned, I think I could have sold it for more if I listed it for a higher buy it now price and waited for the right buyer, it was a cool piece.

UNDER ARMOUR-PROFIT $12.67

I found this Under Armour boy’s sweatshirt at Goodwill for $1.58 including tax.  Obviously by now you know that anything Under Armour is a good buy, especially sweatshirts.  The kid’s sweatshirts are the best because they sell for a good price and they weigh less than 16 ounces so I can ship them USPS First Class.  I listed this sweatshirt in a 7 day auction starting at $9.99 plus $5.99 shipping, I had 37 views, 5 bids, and the sweatshirt sold for a total of $20.50 including shipping.

TIP:  I buy adult and kid’s clothing, but I love kid’s clothing because it costs less, usually $1.49-$3 per item, if I can find pieces that re-sell well my profit margin is better on kid’s items than adult items.

THE NORTH FACE-PROFIT $12.77

I found this boy’s green North Face light jacket at my local Goodwill for $1.58 including tax.  The North Face brand re-sells great, just like Under Armour, if you see anything North Face, buy it.  I listed this jacket in a 7 day auction starting at $9.99 plus $5.99 shipping.  I had 31 views, 2 bids, and the jacket sold for $20.40 including shipping.

TIP:  Only buy kids jackets if they are a major high priced brand, skip the Osh Kosh/Carter’s brands, from my experience they do not re-sell very well at all.

Calico Critters-Profit $19.33

This next item was a complete accident.  I was with the kids at a Habitat for Humanity Restore, we were looking for shelves to organize.  We were getting ready to leave when my youngest ran up to me with this car full of bunnies.  He asked if he could get it, after I saw the $2 price tag I said of course.  He kept dropping the bunnies and I told him “just leave the bunnies and we will buy the car.”  He screamed “no, I want the bunnies!”  I said “fine, lets go,” good thing he insisted on keeping those bunnies.  When we got home, the boys played with the car for 2 seconds and threw it aside.  I picked it up to put it away and I saw that it said Calico on the license plate, Calico was a name I had heard before.  I looked up the “too cute” Calico Critters car and found out it is worth money especially with the bunnies.

TIP:  If you find anything Calico Critters, buy it!  I was so sad one day I was treasure hunting at a thrift store and this woman who was strolling in front of me found the entire Calico Critters tree house.  I don’t even know what it was worth, but I know it was a lot.  If I only would have arrived 10 minutes earlier, oh well maybe next time!

I told the boys that we could sell the car and they could pick out a new hot wheels track, they said “sell it!”  So we listed the car in a 7 day auction starting at $19.99 plus $9.99 shipping, we had 107 page views, 4 bids, and it sold for a total of $33.82 including shipping.

I recently changed my ebay account and subscribed to the basic ebay store for $19.95 per month.  With the store I get 250 free auction listings, 250 free fixed listings, 1% off on final value fees, and once a quarter ebay sends a $25 gift certificate to use in their store on shipping supplies.  My first gift certificate purchase was 25 ebay boxes for $19.37, so the boxes were free, I used one of my ebay boxes to send this car. Another good item to buy with your gift certificate is the ebay tape. You can check out the ebay boxes and tape below.  I would only purchase the below items with your gift certificate to make them free.  I would not buy these items with my money they are over-priced.  You can look at my resource section for the best priced shipping supplies.

Ebay boxes 12x10x8

12 rolls of Ebay tape

My item cost $14.49 to buy, sell and ship, it sold for $33.82, so my profit was $19.33.  I found this cool hot wheels track factory sealed on www.shopgoodwill.com.

I won the auction for $23.00 including shipping!  The boys love it!  I have referenced some auctions I have purchased from www.shopgoodwill.com to re-sell, but you should also check out the site for new factory sealed toys. This track is listed on ebay for $80, I would not buy this track for $80, but someone else may therefore in my opinion the value is there.  I did most of my Christmas shopping last year on the site, I bought some awesome new quality toys at a fraction of the cost!
