Steve – I remember seeing a conversation about pink flamings on Facebook months ago, maybe early spring. I’m sure they’ll all sell eventually.
I had a better week because I am up and listing again. Many of the items I am listing now were given to me by my parents’ downsizing friends when I was visiting in Florida a few weeks ago.
This item was free, but from a former colleague. He was cleaning out his garage. It is two sound blaster cards, never installed, with accessories for $40.
This flatware box was purchased by my mother at a flea market for $5 for my sister. My sister didn’t want it, so up it went. I guess I can’t itemize my mom’s COGS, can I? Anyway, any flatware box I’ve listed lately has sold very quickly, but not for huge amounts of money. This one was a bit bigger than the others, so I listed it for $34.
Here is a recently listed item given to me from a friend of my parents. He remodeled his garage for more storage space and found stuff he didn’t want anymore. This is a vintage brass menorah that sold for $24.
My biggest sale was also from the same guy, vintage Bausch & Lomb binoculars for a best offer $80. He actually did some research and found a listing for $150. I have to talk to him about looking at sold items when he does his research.

Steve, you mentioned that you didn’t list the sony radio headphones simultaneously. – I do the same on Etsy. I feel like it makes the item look more common if I have more than one listed. I just put up the next item when one sells. Seems like a good strategy to me!
Sharyn – That’s a handsome looking flatware box. Guessing it was pretty heavy to ship though even without any flatware inside!

Steve, I deeply appreciate your uncluttered what sold videos, just enough info to drive good points into the scavenger brain! Easy enjoyable informative relevant viewing!
Also thank you to other consistent weekly posters! Me, I’m only motivated to post bi weekly, seems to be what it takes to single out enough interesting sales tom share.1+

Well July was a slow month but I had a few nice sales.
I still love flatware. This was from a huge lot I got on MaxSold. They didn’t have any pictures of it in the auction listing so I took a little bit of a chance and it paid off big. I paid about $7.50 for this portion of the lot. There was a huge amount of flatware when I picked it up and I’ve already sold a fair amount. I think the total for the entire lot was about $25. https://www.ebay.com/itm/323752894029
Unfortunately the MaxSold auctions this summer have been few an far between.
Another item that I love to find is unopened craft kits. I sold another Dimensions Gold horse cross stitch kit. This sold for $80 and I paid $2.50 for it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/323810638541
I’m also working my way through a pipeline of train books. I bought a bunch of train books back in February and paid about .50 for each book. They’ve been selling all along. It’s not a lot of money but one or two sell each week. This is one of the better ones that just sold. https://www.ebay.com/itm/323728057777
I love seeing and hearing about everyone’s sells. We’re fully ebay now so hopefully I can make enough to pay for our health insurance for 2019.
Happy yard saling!

I took 2 weeks off and visited the Olympic Peninsula with my daughter. Lots of fun and hiking and then back to ship around 15 items. It was slow while I was away (and since I returned). I am looking forward to the back to school shopping season and all that follows. Here are a few of my sales:
Vintage 60s or 70s Napkin rings purchased for $1 and sold for $24.50: https://www.ebay.com/itm/193023578510
Vintage new marking pencils picked up as part of a huge lot of vintage school supplies (pennies per item) and sold for $12 https://www.ebay.com/itm/192685840959
Roomba remote control came with our Roomba (purchased just before discovering frugal life). We never use the remote for anything. https://www.ebay.com/itm/192887347754
Oakley Crosslink prescription frames – always buy these for $0.50 to $2.00. This pair sold for $78.50 https://www.ebay.com/itm/192997848607
Vintage K&E slide rule bought for $2 and sold for $75 https://www.ebay.com/itm/192635532419
The rest was all hats, negatives and suspenders.0
