Sitting here on a Sunday afternoon, waiting for the next weather event to happen, browsing my Ebay site . It’s been a long rough winter, with way to many snow days, and just like everyone else, I am in need of spring. Yesterday as I sat on the couch trying to recover from my unruly sinuses, my cell phone made that beautiful “cha-ching” sound. That’s the sound of someone making a purchase from my Ebay site.
That “cha-ching” has been happening for me, at a nice pace lately, it makes me love thrifting even more. Going through my closets and weeding out the ” I don’t want no more” items, and realizing I can sell this, is a nice feeling. An even bigger thrill is browsing my local thrift stores, finding those deals that I know I can sell on Ebay and make some cash doing it.
I dabble in some sports jerseys and t-shirts, always trying to purchase Phillies or Eagles merchandise that I can wear if they don’t sell. Women’s dresses and skirts are a pretty good seller, but it’s never certain someone will buy what you post, but sometimes you get lucky.
Mostly I enjoy the shopping, looking for fashion and knowing I can make someone else happy, and make some cash doing it. It always amazes me what you can find at your local Goodwill or Salvation Army, sometimes brand new with tags. Even the goodies that aren’t new, I have found some pretty cool stuff.
It’s like looking for treasure, always wondering what golden egg I might find, and that’s the fun in it. That vintage concert shirt that you pay .99 for and sell for $14.99, or that sports shirt that you pay $1.99 and sell for $19.99, I love it!!
The hardest part for me is going in to the thrift store and finding that balance of shopping for me, or shopping to sell. Check me out on Ebay under thriftshopper707, and remember, thrift shopping is an art.
