Hmmm, here are some bad things that made my sale not so successful: It was super windy after about an hour so things kept flying off of the tables, furniture was falling over, then came the RAIN!
What? It never rains here!! The day I want to have a garage sale, it rains! What are the odds?!
Also my signs with the rain went by the wayside, no wonder hardly anybody came down my street (this I didn't figure out till later). There were 2 other families just houses down having sales too, so my sale was not the only one that sucked. I think I made $6 or $7. We packed all the small stuff into the van and hauled it off to Goodwill. I just didn't need any of it back in my house, it was already out the door - it needed to leave :) The furniture I hope to sell on Craigslist.
The moral - eBay Rocks.
Didn't see that one coming did you?

This lovely Harve Bernard by Bernard Holzman sz 8 Trench coat was originally for sale at Goodwill for $19.99 but that was too much of an investment on my part so when it was half off on lades clothing day, I snatched it up for $9.99. Then on eBay, it sold for $19.99!
This Banana Republic had to be relisted 3 times, with lots of watchers each time. No one wanted to commit I guess until this week. I purchased for $8.99 and it sold for $17.49
This night-out-on-the town Avenue sz 18 NWT black velvet dressy jacket was purchased for $6.99 and sold for $13.99
Jackets are something I am willing to put in a bit of an investment because they always come out worth it. But I don't just buy any jacket. I look for ones with real promise, whether its by name brand or quality.

I've never had that many on any one item. It had 10 people "watching" it. I should have known better, but I expected a battle in the last few minutes of the action. Did it sell for tons of money?? No! All those looky-loo's looked away at the wrong moment and the auction ended with NO bids. I'm so disappointed, I feel like not re-listing it out of spite. But I know that does no one any good, especially me. But I'm frustrated right now. And maybe I'll just wait till tomorrow to relist it. Maybe someone or 10 someones will email me asking for a buy it now option.
We'll see if I accept their offer!
