The weather was so nice we harvested honey and split wood for 3 days. But we kept on selling!
This week we’ve been photographing and listing piles of unlisted items. But we’ve also taken the time to do other scavenger tasks like harvest honey from our bees and split firewood for the winter (as seen above). Do a little work now and save a lot of money in the future.
We’re also learning some new categories of items to sell since all it takes is a little research to turn that trash to cash. Some sellers love to specialize, but this means you really have to become the super expert.
Jeff from Michigan sent us this article about how “brown furniture” that was so popular in the 1980’s can’t be given away today, but this also may mean it’s a good opportunity to find the cool, rare pieces. The shipping and storage is a challenge, but we’ve been doing well with small pieces of furniture.
What’s going on in your store this week?
