Had a enjoyable “all-in” buy at a yard sale this weekend. Came across a sale that had a TON of latest in field star wars toys. Some actually cool stuff I had by no means seen earlier than.  Sometimes after I come throughout issues like this at yard gross sales the vendor needs ebay costs or increased, so I didn’t have excessive expectations. There have been no costs, so I requested what issues price. Vendor mentioned “you imply like for all of it?” Nicely I didn’t truly, however I responded “yeah I’d be fascinated with all of it”. Vendor came visiting, talked about how her husband and child have been massive into star wars as soon as upon a time. They took a bit eyeballing every little thing and mentioned “how about $100 for every little thing?” Man I feel I set a report for the time it took me to whip out my pockets and peel off 5 $20’s!

There have been 20 unfastened figures and 43 new in field. I’ve already created all of the listings and achieved pictures for half of them. Whole checklist value is $1430 and I’ve already bought 3 gadgets inside hours of itemizing.

The large disappointment that prompted my unique scavenger excessive was that there was some issues there that have been wrapped up on the sale with only a label on the entrance. The vendor informed me they have been the mail in figures. I used to be freaking out pondering they is perhaps the 70’s mail in toys! As soon as I received house and inspected every little thing…I discovered that they have been the mid 90’s mail in toys.  I had forgotten that they redid the mail away toy factor within the 90’s. Boooo!!!! The whole lot on the sale have been the mid 90’s toys with just a few from early 2000’s.

Nonetheless, $1400 on a $100 funding is unquestionably nothing to sneeze at! After gives and costs I’ll internet near $1k revenue.
