Misspelled Brands on Craiglist Can equal Great Profit

When I browse small ads online, I always search for misspelling. My logic: if someone is looking to buy Petshops like I do to flip, they won't necessarily be searching for misspelled keywords. When I look for Petshop to flip, one of the keyword I use is "Petshups"(and a few others). Usually these ads have less views and it ups your chance to find some good lots.

That's what happened this weekend. I got two awesome Petshop lots, both ads were misspelled.
First seller had a complete set of "Around the World" Petshop (the first set) for $11 as well as a small accessories lot that included the cute Halloween black cat in a pumpkin for $4.50.

From another seller I got a mix toy lot with a complete Outdoor Adventure 2 set LPS, many Ponyville My Little Pony and some flocked Hello Kitty figurines. Seller gave me a super cute, large, Hello Kitty bubble bath container.

Summer 2015 eBay Haul

Yes I know it's a small haul, but I didn't do that many yard sales and community sales during our summer holidays.

We went all over France and I have been home very little, but on our journey to Limousin, Bretagne and Haute-Savoie I managed to convince the family to make a few stops for yard sales.

I bough a few LPS, including some Great Danes, a selection of crafts magazines (including ugly Christmas sweater patterns), a big box of use France stamps, on and off paper. Some vintage tin box (including a nice blur Suchard chocolate one), some clothes for the kids (not in the picture), a lovely set of unused French linen torchons (tea towels), a wooden basket with a nice patina, some Playmobil Castle parts, a Limoges Chambord chateau plate, a cute Victorian style photo album. Some were cheap, some were even free because one of the sale I attended was almost close when I got there and got things for free.

My summer yard sale haul

The Littlest Pet Shop are a sure profit maker and the rest was so cheap that I'll make money too. I may sell a few things locally, but most will be listed on ebay.

I hope everyone had a great summer and may the yard sale god be with you !!!
