I have been busy listing & selling. In addition to that, I have been going to therapy for my left knee twice a week. It is helping and I am slowly healing.
Instead of listing everything that has sold, I am just going to post the "Top 10" sales of the week:
1. Escada animal print wool jacket, sold to a buyer in Austria. Sold for $149.61.
2. St. John Collection santana knit dress, sold for $136.50.
3. Versace "V2" black fitted dress, sold for $82 with 18 bids! I had this previously listed for $49.99 and it has not sold several times. For some reason it ended with multiple bids this time. You just never know :)
4. St. John off-white leather shoulder purse, sold for $76.49.
5. Vtg 1980's dress, sold for $65. I purchased this last Wednesday after my doctor's appointment. It was listed Wednesday evening and then sold & shipped Thursday morning. Score!
6. Vtg. 1950's house dress with an awesome strawberry lemonade print, sold for $58.75 with 10 bids. It sold to a buyer in Switzerland. Again, I had this listed for a few weeks for $20 and it didn't sell. And then suddenly it sold for much more. It had numerous flaws but was still adorable!
7. Dale of Norway wool sweater, sold for $50.
8. Trina Turk swimsuit cover-up top, sold for $50.
9. Vera Bradley on the go style bag in Jazzy Blooms, sold for $47.23. This was my personal hand bag which I purchased from the VB website for less than $25. I used it then sold it for a profit. Love when this happens! Plus, I am down to just 3 purses in my closet! :)
10. Johnny Was embroidered top with a few flaws, sold for $47.
**And a bonus! This t-shirt sold within two days of listing it. It had several holes and a stain. However, it sold for $46.23 to a very happy CA buyer.
Today I am going to thrift. I have about 125 vintage pieces (mostly dresses) still unlisted. These are left from when I purchased 600 pieces from an ebayer who was moving overseas.
I do not regularly sell vintage and so I find myself saying "I wonder if this from the 1940's or 50's". It takes a lot longer to list vintage stuff than regular stuff. There is more photographing, more researching and I feel the need to describe stuff with more adjectives. Ha.
On a regular listing day, I can list up to 60 pieces. I find myself listing about 1/3 of my regular speed when it comes to vintage. Ugh.
