Day 6 of Money Challenge #2: Everyday Listing/Selling for 31 days – The Eye of the Needle

My college boyfriend taught me how to knit. His mom had taught him as a kid and he was quite good. While he was knitting complicated patterns for cabled neck sweaters and intarsia hats, I was still knitting scarves and wash cloths.

In fact, I never graduated from the scarves phase of knitting. The only thing that progressed in my knitting hobby was my super human power to accumulate knitting gear. Knitters know how addicting buying yarn can be. I even bought sets of needles in various colors and sizes, including vintage knitting schwag:

That’s right! Vintage 1950s Made in America knitting gear by Marcia Lynn – and still in original packaging.

Unfortunately, they don’t sell as well as I’d hoped. So I’ve combined them into one listing to increase their odds of selling. Starting bid is only 5.99.

So far I’ve put 9 listing on ebay and only one thing has a bid (the Avon locket necklace) and even that’s only going for $2.99!

I keep telling myself that at least the stuff is listed and not just wasting closet space. *sigh*
