Sold on eBay! | Thriftanista in the City


Sold on eBay!

Just before Christmas, I sold something on eBay for $51 that I bought for 0.25 at an estate sale! That sale got me pumped to sale more stuff I have around the house that aren't likely to be missed. 

Multiple streams of income is on my vision board and I think increasing my eBay and Etsy sales will top the list of most profitable this year. My extremely modest earnings from last year were a 50/50 split of sponsored posts and online sales.

These are the items I plan to kick off with. Once I get them posted, I'll be sure to share the link.

I received some positive feedback about having a thrifted monthly giveaway so look out for the first one coming this month!

I posted a mini haul over on Thrift. City. Life. See what I bought at a suburban Goodwill. Let me know what you think.

I am throwing my blog in the ring for the title for the Top 25 Fashion and Beauty Moms on Circle of Moms. I entered for a a few reasons:

1. I want to see more women of color in the top 25.
2. Thrifting rocks and I want to see a thrift fashion blog in the the top 25.
3. It's 2013, I'm trying something new!

With that said, I would love your vote and you can expect to see this plea several times during the voting period!

Happy Friday and have a good weekend, Thriftanistas!

The voting may be once a day, but it's really once in 24 hours. Make mine a nightly reminder since that's when I first voted!

Mac is listing things on eBay before he moves next weekend. He is having wild success with one item, so far nothing on the others. You just never know, but it's worth a try for sure!

I voted for you. I agree that I would like to see more women of color in those Top 25 contests on Circle of Moms. And isn't eBay such a great way to not only find great pieces but to make a little extra income as well?
