Red Cross Charity Sale New With Tag High End Brand Part Two

Well I went back to the Red Cross sale in the afternoon. I wasn't expecting to find anything this late, but there was some good stuff left. I bought some more Catimini pieces, 2 pair of NWT jeans (Levi's and Tommy Hilfiger) and a few other pieces. So between the morning haul and this one, each pieces ended up costing me $3.50 per piece.

Very very happy!

Here's todays haul part two:

More NWT stuff



Red Cross Charity Sale New With Tag High End Brand

That's my week for the unexpected finds (see Sunday's post). This morning I walk pass my local Red Cross shop and they were having a special sale. It was not their regular used second hand stuff but rather all NWT clothing and accessories. I spend 40$ (5$ a piece) which may sound like a lot but it's not. I could have bought more and may go back later today and see if they have put some other things for sale.

I found some sweet Catimini pieces, an high end French brand of clothing. All new with tags. I only bought sizes my kids can use, so if I don't sell them (or feel like keeping them) it won't be lost!

Here's today's haul:

Free Stuff I sold on eBay

I love Cyrillus, an high end French boutique for clothes and home accessories. They have lovely fashion for the kids, so whenever they ran some sales I do buy there. They have a reward system (point based) and you can turn your points into some goodies. They also have special offers where they'll send you a gift when you spend a pre-set amount of money.

Last spring I got two free gifts after I placed an order and sold both on ebay.

These cute bowls sold for 35$ (free shipping)

And this set of cosmetic bags sold for 12$ (free shipping)

Once I take out the shipping cost, I have 30$ left, not too bad for stuff I got for free.

An Unexpected Yard Sale

It was unexpected. The kids and I went downtown because there was a cycling race and a few small attractions for kids. And there was also some people selling stuff. It was advertise as a craft/handmade fair, but there was quite a few people selling stuff from their home.

I score some good Littlest Petshop including 2 collies, 1 dachshund and 1 great Dane! Paid 1$ each. The others are ok too and I have good success selling the cheaper LPS.

Also bought a fun pair of Mustang clogs with flower print upper. And a cute wooden necklace, very colorful. I'll try selling it and if it doesn't sell, I'll keep! Also some little people animals, not a huge profit but they do sell. I usually wait until I have a few to make small lots.

By Bus Train and Tramway I went Yard Sailing

Last eBay haul from May 2015

Yep this weekend I went to Grenoble for some yard sales. Woke up early, took the bus then the tram once in Grenoble, and came back home by train. It was well worth the trip and cash I paid for public transports. I'll make a profit and not too bad either. Plus it's so fun, I can't wait for the next weekend.


My favorite find was this old tin box depicting jousting French knights. Lovely colors and theme (not to mention the fleur de lys that seems to be a popular iconographic image).

Also found 3 Gothic puzzles (one mint in box), 1000 and 1500 pieces, 2 from Victoria Frances art pieces. Pretty Gothic girls are still in demands. paid $12 for the lot of 3.

Some pink leather (yay!!) Timberland boots and cute vintage clips for curtains .

And guess what, more Petshop figurines and one big house. I never buy the houses because usually they are too expensive or annoying to ship but this one was very cheap. Paid 6$ for the house and 6 pets (including one of the expensive Great Dane). So cashling cashling!!! Will sell the pets on ebay and the house locally. Also found a bunch of other petshops during the weekend. People's price are all over the place. I saw someone trying to sell them for 2,50 each (I work that down to 3 for 5$ since there was a good great dane to be picked). By the end of the weekend, I ended up paying close to 1$ each, so that's the average price I pay when I know they are good sellers.
