One of my Best Sale was Found in the Recycle Bin

Been looking at some of my sales from the last 12 months and my favorite is also one that net me the best profit.

I found this daguerreotype in the recycle bin along with other stuff (see here).

It sold for $180 plus shipping.

Hello Kitty Ty Plush and My Little Pony

Not a great haul this Sunday, but I bought a lot of Ty Hello Kitty. They don't sell for a whole lot  but I got them very very cheap so that's fine. Also found many My Little Pony. Some Littlest Pet Shop but nothing good. One lady was selling hers 3 euros each..... so I pass because there was none that was worth paying that much.

I bough 6 exquisite French monogrammed linen hand / tea towels at a very decent price. Not sure if I'll sell or keep. Also some books for my son, although I usually manage to seel kid's French books on ebay. We'll see once he read them, I might flip them.

I bough yet another version of one of our favorite games: Ravensburger's Labyrinth. This one has a different game play, so we'll need to read the game rules. If you are not familiar with this board game, read this: Ravensburger Labyrinth Game Is Fun For The Whole Family

Toy Sales Season: Time to Make Stock for eBay

It has started here where I live: the used toys community sales. Schools, churches and other organizations run community sales exclusively reserved to selling toys, kids/baby clothes and other child-related products.

This is the perfect time to buy up toys and games to stock my store for the Christmas buying season. Although I only have about 3 weeks left before it’s too late for US buyers to buy Christmas gifts from my store (airmail from Europe to the USA can now take a good 3 weeks), whatever is left will sell later on. Toys sell all year long.

So I got a lot of nice toys this weekend, including some Littlest Pet Shop. Yes, they still sell despite the fact that eBay is overrun by fake LPS from China. I also bought some My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, ELC sets and Playmobils. Not shown are some jewelry and a pair of Birkenstock shoes. I was also lucky to find a few Lego Fabuland. These I don't find often and they sell very, very well, so I pick them out whenever I see them.

I did very well, and feel that I got some great deals, and overall I should make a nice profit. I am looking forward to more toys sales this week. Now of course I just need more time to list, list, list!

Here is a preview of my haul:
