The Great Ebay Experiment

Starting the year off with a new goal, to get to having 200 active listings in my eBay store. 🙂 We’ll see how that goes.

Sold:

  • Mere Christianity by CS Lewis — picked up the entire set of CS Lewis books at a thrift store. And one by one I’ve been selling them off.
  • 4 woven napkin rings — still working through all of these. I think more than half of the napkin rings are gone now.

The Great Ebay Experiment

And that’s it for this year! Not a bad deal actually.

Sold:

  • Return to Oz Storybook — Got this from Savers and it looked brand new to me. Hope it made a collector happy.
  • Metal Enamel Napkin Rings — Picked these up in a lot with a bunch of other napkin rings. I’ve already paid off the lot. This is just gravy now, which makes me very happy.
  • Book of Polish Poems — Picked this up from Savers. It’s beautiful. I wish I could read it.
  • Sandman Book — I love Neil G. I really do. I hope this is going to another fan.
  • KitchenAid Mixer cover — This was my Mom’s but she used it once and decided it wasn’t worth it.
  • The Dovekeepers book — This is actually a part of a fundraising group of books which is for specifically a Super Secret Project.
  • Sherlock Holmes Puzzles book — Also part of a fundraising group of books.
  • Values to Action book — Also one of those darned fundraising books.
  • Twas the Night Before Christmas — Another part of my Savers pile. 🙂
  • Precious Moments Figure — Selling these for a friend. Pretty sure I’m down to three left.
  • Calvin & Hobbes book — Got the slipcased collection, so I’ve been selling my regular books. I’m always happy that someone else will get a smile out of them.
  • Vintage birdhouse ornament — one of the oldest items in my shop. Pretty sure I’ve taken a loss on it, but at least it’s sold.

The Great Ebay Experiment

And we’re ramping up for the season!

Sold:
