The Great Ebay Experiment 07-03-16

Six months in and still drowning in stuff!

We’ll start with what’s sold:

  • Graphic Novel
  • Vintage Gerber Baby (rough shape)
  • Sewing Pattern
  • Cookbook
  • Sewing Pattern #2
  • 1 PM Figurine


Graphic Novel… I think. It was from Dark Horse and I know I read it and liked it well enough, but not enough that I wanted to keep it to re-read.

Vintage Gerber Baby — oh, this poor baby doll was in sad shape. He had major degradation of the rubber on his left side. (right if you’re looking at him.) But in the right clothes he’ll still be cute and I picked him up in a huge box-lot, which has already paid for itself, so anything that sells now is a bonus. My awesome buyer sent me extra money when she noticed how expensive the shipping turned out to be.

Sewing Pattern — Plus sized, brand new, and highly customizable.

Cookbook — Diabetes cookbook with a very odd address that meant I had to reach out to the customer and go “huh?”

Sewing Pattern #2 — Plus sized, brand new, easy-sew pattern

1 Precious Moments — A little angel ornament. Almost done with these and I cannot wait.

So, the problem with selling stuff, is that now I have to LIST stuff. OY!

Until next month! Happy selling and buying!
