Thanks for all the great tips everyone!
Jay, this is a REALLY cool looking retro vase, which is why I kept picking it up to look at at the garage sale. Unfortunately, our home is a 100 year old farmhouse with craftsman style and is full of antiques and craftsman furniture. This vase doesn’t go at all.
thanks again everyone. This is such a great online community. liz

Thank you all for the great responses! I appreciate all of the information here! I did see this on Chairish for $325 (no longer available). Not sure if or what it sold for.
I will def. prepack it and go from there listing it. THANKS AND HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY!
Thank you everyone for posting! I love seeing what people have sold! Sharyn, that horse painting was wonderful! I would have bought it if I had seen it! – Liz03/30/2019 at 3:41 pm in reply to: Where have all the books gone? Scavenging idea for book lovers…. #59415
Thanks Clarity! I will look into Thrift books. It drives me nuts that so many good books are filling the landfill! liz03/30/2019 at 10:11 am in reply to: Where have all the books gone? Scavenging idea for book lovers…. #59404
That is cool Sharyn! We also set aside books for an annual sale. We just get so many donations there is a lot of excess.
I should also add that scavengers should also check out the sale room too if their library has one. We price regular children’s books at 50 cents, Easy Readers at 10 Cents and all adult books at $1.00.
You can buy old hardcover bibles for $1.00 and the entire Wimpy Kid or Harry Potters series for just a few dollars! These are EASY resell items for decent profit and easy shipping!
I grabbed a vintage copy of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged last week and it sold in less than 24 hours for $75!
Thanks Antique Frog!
Thank you Sharyn! Have a wonderful day! liz
One more question for Priority boxes over 1 lb. And then I will stop bugging the forum! Do you tend to use flat rate or should I order non-rate priority boxes?
So Cal Joe (and everyone else)… Thank you for all the shipping tips! I am going to order shipping supplies this week. Can’t believe i’ve been boxing magazines that would fit in a flat rate env.! Cost me about double to ship than it should have!
Live and learn… thanks for the info! liz
Thanks Ryanne! and thank you for this site. have a good day! Liz
Thank you for all of the info! Have a great day! Liz
WOW! This is a great community! Thank you for all of the replies! Sharyn, when i first started a couple of months ago and had a shipping question, you suggested a scale. I went out and immediately got one! thank you! I always round up several ounces.
So i’ve been choosing Retail Ground under Economy Services because I thought that was the cheapest way to ship. BTW… i’ve been selling old magazines and sold a bunch last week to a person in Florida and they were charged $18.75 for shipping from New York on Ebay. My cost was only $10 so i gave them a partial refund. The post office actually gave me a discontinued non flat rate medium box to use so that the postage would be sufficient. Today I sold a much heavier lot of magazines to a person in PA and Ebay calculated shipping for the buyger at $11.75…???? but when I went to print my label the medium box rate was $12.80. I double checked my listings and it seems i had the exact same shipping options listed.
Maybe $11.75 was for a medium box rate, non flat rate? I’ve got to ask the post office.
I’m thinking about just using flat rate box rates for these magazines or maybe change my listings to Parcel Select Ground. ugh… this isn’t brain surgery…. i feel like a dummy with this stuff! I will ask tomorrow at the post office.
Thanks for the responses! – Liz
Yes! Got supplies for my art studio this weekend. – Liz
