What Sold on eBay This Week July 1- 7, 2019

Thomas Edison's Winter Home



Sales this week were only a tiny bit higher in number than last week, but the sales, when compared to last week, were less. I am grateful for the sales I did get, and I will keep on listing to get my store numbers up and try not to buy new inventory for at least one week.  I said that last week, but that didn't quite work out.

I am still utilizing promoted listings at 2% and for the Fourth, I did a storewide 15% sale.  The sale accounted for about half of the sales, and before I started the sale, there were a couple of best offers I accepted from customers. 

We took a two day trip to Fort Meyers to see the winter homes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. The museum, Edison's lab, his home, and Henry Ford's home were fantastic. Definitely recommend a guided tour to get the most from your visit.  I missed two days of listing, but that's fine.  We needed to get away. 



Here are the numbers for July 1-7, 2019

I found the Tapestry at GW for $6.99 and took a best offer of $70. It has been in my inventory since December.  It is headed to California 


This piece of AVON is from the Forty Box Challenge.  It probably averages out to a cost of .25 cents. It is on its way to Texas 



I found a box of both the Monorail supports and curved rails (which are still listed) The whole box cost $2.99 and each piece averages about .10 cents.  They are on their way to Maryland.



 We picked up these two books at a garage sale for .25 cents for both.  Took a best offer of $10.  They are on their way to Minnesota.


These pieces were in a bag of about 25 pieces for $2.99.  We took a Best Offer of $10 for this lot. They are headed to Alabama 


This is another item from the Forty Box Challenge.  It had best offer on the listing, but the buyer paid full price. It is going to Nevada


Another item from the Forth Box Challenge.  We took an offer of $16. It is on its way to Los Angeles 



This Doom Buggy is part of a game, the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland that was made in 1975.  I found the game at Goodwill for 2.99.  I decided to break the game apart and list the different pieces and part from the game.  I originally had three doom buggys listed for 69.99.  The buyer emailed and asked if I would sell the red one to her for $24 plus shipping so she could complete her set.  Why.... yes I was happy to do that! 
I love to buy vintage games and list the pieces.  It can be longtail, but it is definitely worth it.  It is on its way to California.



The pie server was bought in a lot of 6 items for $4.00.  I took a best offer of $10 for it.  It was shipped to New York.



Found this little  Noritake creamer at GoodWill in December for .99 cents.  It is on its way to Washington DC



Will next week be a better week?  I sure hope so.  How are your eBay sales this summer?

  1. Lots of nice sales, especially on that tapestry. Mermaid stuff is very popular and that bottle is really neat. I didn't have much luck with my daughter's college books. I ended the listings early because I went away, but now I have to relist them. I think I will add best offer and see what happens.

    1. I have been taking a lot of best offers, it seems to be the primary way to get sales in my store. There are occasions that I do counteroffer, but the last two times I did that, the person did not respond or they declined. Oh well!

      Good luck with your daughter's college books, sometimes it is just a waiting game for the right buyer to come along. :-)
