The Great Ebay Experiment

And we’re ramping up for the season!


  • Gummi Bears Book — picked this up at Savers. It was missing its tape, but in good shape.
  • Borderlands Game Pad — From Lootcrate. I still have a few things left to list from Lootcrate, but I think it’s mostly left the building at this point.
  • Journal of Colonial Williamsburg Spring — You never know when someone is going to need an article in an historical magazine/journal.
  • “A Work of Heart” Teddy Bear Pattern — This was from a plan to make teddy bears to sell which never got off the ground.

The Great Ebay Experiment 6-3-16

Five months in and still drowning in stuff!

We’ll start with what’s sold:

  • Marvel Ice Tray
  • Hexbug
  • Game of Thrones Magnets
  • Pr. of Baker’s shoes
  • Butterick Pattern


Marvel Ice Tray — This was a Lootcrate piece.

Hexbug — Also a Lootcrate piece, but the purchaser got it to torment their cat.

GoT Magnets — You guessed it. Lootcrate.

Pair of Baker’s Shoes — These were high heeled ankle boots that my mother loved, but can’t wear. I sold them for her.

Butterick Pattern — Plus sized formal dress pattern. Mom and I bought it, but never used it and we’ve decided it’s not our style, so onto the sale pile!

Until next month! Happy selling and buying!

Ebay Experiment Update 04-03-16

Four months in and still drowning in stuff!

We’ll start with what’s sold:

  • Lootcrate Hydra Pin
  • Precious Moments Angel Ornament
  • Batman Multitool
  • Lootcrate Terminator skull and chip
  • Precious Moments Oh, How I Love Jesus
  • Precious Moments Mouse with Cheese Ornament
  • 1 Cookbook on

Hydra pin – Took an offer on this one, but it was close to asking, so I’m fine with that. (Or I wouldn’t have taken it!) I like seeing things run out the door, but I won’t take offers that are below value. It’s just silly!

PM Ornament – Second time around for this one. This was returned once. Hopefully, this customer read *all* of the description and will be happy with him. (These are being sold for a friend.)

Batman Multitool – Another Lootcrate piece off to a happy home. Not a high-value item, but every little bit helps.

Lootcrate Terminator skull and chip – This sold on Bonanza, which is cool. It’s only the second item I’ve sold through that site.

PM Figurine – I am conflicted about this one. It could be just considered cute, or it could be considered seriously racially offensive. It’s a little kid dressed up as a Native American. Therefore, the title makes me twitch. But I will let actual tribe-members make the call as to whether it’s offensive or not.

PM Mouse – I am sort of sad to see this one go. I *love* rats and mice and I was considering keeping this one. He’s adorable, but he’s heading to a good home.

Sold a vintage kid’s cookbook on

One refund for an item not received. The tracking says it was delivered to a package locker, but the buyer states that they don’t have one. I have to believe the buyer, so I sent the refund. Still sucks.

Until next month! Happy selling and buying!

Ebay update 03-03-16

Three months in and still, erm, limping along. I’ve got so many things which need to be listed.

We’ll start with what’s sold:

  • Lootcrate Rick & Morty Puzzle
  • Lootcrate Mad Magazine
  • 2 McDonald’s SW Toys
  • Precious Moments: Praise the Lord Anyway
  • Precious Moments: Praise the Lord Anyway (<– NOT a Typo)
  • Versace Eyeglass Case & cloth
  • 1 CD
  • 1 Book
  • Lootcrate Wooden Joker Figure

Sort of slow, but the store was on vacation for a week and a half while I was on vacation. I blame it on that. Well, that and the fact that I haven’t had much new added to the listings. Time to buckle down a bit more.

The Rick & Morty Puzzle actually sold on Bonanza (which is sort of a mirror of my eBay shop, with minimal fees). I am thrilled as this is my first sale through them.

The Mad Magazine broke even after fees and shipping, which sucks, but at the same time, it’s not here and I didn’t have to pay to send it somewhere or take it to the charity shop, so there’s that.

The McDonald’s Toys were, something random from a co-worker, so I’m happy they’re headed to a more appreciative home.

The Precious Moments. Yes, there were two of the same figure. I am still selling these for a friend. More to prove to myself that I can, than anything else. Next time, I’ll just buy the things outright and move on with my life. Funny story, I told my Dad this was the boy with the ice cream cone. I also told him the title. The title is not on the box. There is no picture on the box. The box says “boy with dog”. On my notes “boy with dog” is “God Speed.” You know, because there are 4 different designs with dogs involved in this adventure.

I used to have Versace frames for my sunglasses. The frames broke. I was sad, but I sold their case, so that’s not a bad thing.

Sold a book on for my mother. Sold a CD on for myself.

Until next month! Happy selling and buying!
