So, yeah, its been a while. Ive just been getting into the swing of things, figuring out what is working best for me. I have decided to try and share some of my more unique finds here, because I love learning about new things to look for while thrifting, I mean, if I’m already in the store I might as well make the most of my time, right?
So, although my mainstay is clothing, I hope to feature some funny, unusual items that I’ve sold that might get you thinking about new parts of the thrift store to explore too!
First item: a r2d2 star wars popcorn bucket from Disney World. I will admit I didn’t know much about it when I picked it off the shelf, however it was .99 and I figured I could surely get that much for it. star wars certainly has its share of merchandise, but this one was unique, in nice shape and lightweight so I figured it wouldn’t be too expensive to ship.
These pics are from my listing where I eventually sold this for 28.99 BIN with free shipping. My profit after all fees and costs was around 18.00.
Another random find- this authentic Tory Burch makeup bag. Also scored this for .99, sitting inthe junk section at my local goodwill, super excited! I sold it for 29.99 BIN- my profit on this was around 21.00.
So, anyway, there you have it, few items that I’ve had success with recently. I will be on the lookout for some more interesting things to share!
Did you know there is a huge market for coffee cups on ebay? I Didn’t either! I guess I’ve just been so consumed with clothes and other things to think about collectors things. Well , I was reading a blog which I cannot figure out how to get back to because I remember nothing, however, the author briefly mentioned success with certain Starbucks mugs, so the next time I was in my local, I did give a quick look, and stunningly, two of the exact ones the Blogger mentioned being worth a ton (in thrifting terms). So, threw them in my cart, brought them home, and voila! Sold both in a matter of days for 39.99 plus shipping, EACH! Now, I make sure to always check the coffee mug section.
