I sold several more Rothschild jackets this week. Hallelujah! I'm so glad to see those finally going. I don't know if it's because I lowered the price, or if it's because springtime is here. But either way, they're moving out, and at a price I can be happy with.
I think I also mentioned that I had sold a couple pair of men's Florsheim dress shoes this week too. They were very stale. I dropped the price on them and they sold quickly. I will no longer be afraid to pick them up. I'll just price them immediately at my new lower price ($35) instead of hoping for $50+.
This bowl has become a thorn in my side. I dropped the price ridiculously low and it's finally good. Good riddance.

This are Basic Editions, which I think is a K-Mart brand. I would never have bought them, except they were NWT and they were the half-price color that day. I overpriced them and added best offer. I went back and forth with a buyer this morning and she finally accepted my price. I'm not jumping for joy over the price, but I still got 10x my investment, and considering they are K-Mart shorts, I'm ok with that.

I have a bad feeling about these Clarks. They are old. They sold right before my decision to go through and cull my currently listed Clarks. I tugged and pulled and bent and stretched them. I shoved my too-big foot into them and stepped around, and they didn't break. So I've got my fingers crossed that they'll be alright. Ugh. I really need to get that done. I don't want to sell anymore old Clarks. Quite frankly, I don't want to sell anymore Clarks period, but I'd like to at least get some of my money back out of the nicest ones.

I don't know what on earth possessed me to sell this western Wrangler shirt as low as I did. It must have been a slow sales day. I know I can get $24.99 out of these, but I accepted a ridiculously low offer this week.

This pattern was given to me several years ago. I actually made the nurse costume for my daughter. I knew the pattern was 100% complete. There were none others listed, so I listed it high and hoped for the best. It sold pretty quickly for my full asking price. Then yesterday, the buyer actually called me to thank me profusely for having this pattern available, because she'd been looking for it for two years. It was kind of weird, but it made me smile to know that I had made her so happy.
