I was walking around a new thrift store, thinking about how overpriced the stuff was until I came across the fabric section and saw two oddly fuzzy pieces of fabric hanging from the line for only 99 cents. I was curious about what the hell this was, so I inspected the strange fuzzy fabric and found this:
The gold tag, not the white. It says “American Girl” and that means it’s worth more than 99 cents in great condition. So I bought the strange pieces of fabric with the intent in reselling them on ebay. Alas, I made $10.51 profit today with that instinct to resell them!
Finding weird things at the thrift store and reselling them is always a gamble. Luckily, I’ve been doing it for about 8 years so I’m finally at that point where I know what I’m doing. And trust me, it took all of 8 years to get to this point. But even a total newbie can see that American Girl is a seller.
And that’s how I sold these…
They’re some kind of bedding/rugs/faux animal hides for the now retired Native American Girl doll Kaya. They sold for $13 + $4 shipping, but after ebay fees, Paypal fees, and shipping costs, and what they cost me, I made 10 buckaroos.
Moral of the story: check out the fuzzy fabric at the thrift store….er, just keep an open mind when figuring out what you can sell for extra dough.
Today’s gain: $10.51
