Had a enjoyable “all-in” buy at a yard sale this weekend. Stumbled on a sale that had a TON of recent in field star wars toys. Some actually cool stuff I had by no means seen earlier than.  Usually after I come throughout issues like this at yard gross sales the vendor needs ebay costs or larger, 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?” Effectively I didn’t truly, however I responded “yeah I’d be curious about all of it”. Vendor came visiting, talked about how her husband and child had been large into star wars as soon as upon a time. They took a bit eyeballing all the pieces and mentioned “how about $100 for all the pieces?” Man I believe I set a document for the time it took me to whip out my pockets and peel off 5 $20’s!

There have been 20 free figures and 43 new in field. I’ve already created all of the listings and accomplished images for half of them. Whole listing value is $1430 and I’ve already offered 3 objects inside hours of itemizing.

The large disappointment that induced my unique scavenger excessive was that there was some issues there that had been wrapped up on the sale with only a label on the entrance. The vendor instructed me they had been the mail in figures. I used to be freaking out pondering they is likely to be the 70’s mail in toys! As soon as I received dwelling and inspected all the pieces…I discovered that they had 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 had 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 presents and charges I’ll web near $1k revenue.
