Top 10 Ebay Sales - 11/29/13

Happy Black Friday! I hope everyone had a great time shopping today. I went thrifting because I was out of unlisted ebay inventory. I love being completely out of inventory. It makes me feel very productive. Ha.

Remember back in September when I purchased about 600-700 items of clothing? Well, I finished listing the last of the vintage dresses last night. I have sold about 200 items and have more than tripled my investment. The other 400 or so are still for sale. 

Here are some of the things that have sold this week: 

1. Vintage Lilly Pulitzer dress, sold for $90.

2. Ralph Lauren silk blend sweater, sold for $40. 

3. Mulberry leather purse, sold for $100. 

4. Ann Taylor LOFT lace dress, sold for $40 to a buyer in Canada. 

5. Logo by Lori Goldstein (sold on QVC) cocoon top, sold for $35. I found four of these same tops in different colors and picked them all up.

6. Cupcake International brand long duster, sold for $31. I picked this up while in NY last week for $3. I got back to PA, listed it and it sold to a buyer in New York. Haha. 

7. Elie Tahari lace dress, sold for $36 to a buyer in Russia. 

8. Ann Taylor LOFT plaid skirt, sold for $29. 

9. BCBG Max Azria bubble dress, sold for $63 to a buyer in Canada. 

10. Neiman Marcus cashmere sweater which had a flaw, sold for $29. I purchased a lot of 15 cashmere sweaters on ebay for $80 shipped a few weeks ago. I have sold 2 so far and have made back almost all of my investment. And I still have 13 cashmere sweaters left! 

And a bonus: 

Ralph Lauren button lot, sold for $27. I snipped these off of a blazer I got for free while in New York last week. The blazer had a giant rip on the sleeve but I knew I could sell the buttons.

Are you doing anything fun to celebrate this "11-12-13" day? This will only happen one more time in our lifetime (12-13-14). 

We woke up to snow! We have had several days of flurries over the last few weeks. But this is the first real snow fall. The news is saying we got 3" of snow. Brrrr! 

Our back porch this morning - It was still dark at 6am.

I'm going to rehab today. It has been 9 weeks since my knee surgery. My knee is still having issues. It sounds like a robot knee. I have weird little clicks and catches. I have a new knee doctor and I will visit him the first week of December. 

I am looking forward to: 

1. Visiting family this weekend! 
2. Teaching three Christmas songs to my children's church class so they can perform on Christmas Eve. I have a group of ten 5-7 year olds. They are darling. 
3. Walking along the beach in January. 
4. Heaven! 

The side of our yard overlooks a farm. It makes for a pretty scene!

Please pray for: 

One of our Compassion kids whose name is Princess. Her family lives in the Philippians. All we know is that the Compassion center she visits on a daily basis was hit. Princess' family lost their home just over a year ago due to a storm and they had just rebuilt.

My Influenster Box featuring Dr. Scholl's For Her Cozy Cushions

I am part of It is a free sample program. They send you stuff to try and then you take part in a survey. If you post on Facebook, Twitter or a Blog, you could get more products.

If you want to be invited, I can send you an invite. I just need your email. There is no spam and I don't get anything from the invite. 

This summer I got free deodorant and Slim-Fast. Two weeks ago, I got a large box in the mail.

I immediately ate the Lindt chocolate. Yum! I adore chocolate and usually don't have it due to my stupid milk allergy. But it was SO worth it. The chocolate literally melts in your mouth. Thankfully there was only one in the package. 


The other edible product was a BelVita breakfast biscuit pack. I put off trying these for atleast a few days. I really didn't want to eat them. I finally "forced" myself and found out...I loved them! They don't have any milk products which is awesome. You get four thin cookies and they are yummy. I plan on buying these instead of granola bars for my breakfast. They are usually in the cookie/cracker aisle.

I received two make-up products. The Kiss gradation polish is actually three polishes that you apply to create an ombre design. I haven't yet tried this. I normally don't wear polish on my fingers. I plan on using it towards the holidays though. 

The other beauty product was mascara. I've never tried Rimmel's mascara. I adore Maybelline's Lash Stilleto Ultimate Length. I have tried others but nothing has beat it. 

But, I tried this product and my lashes were super long. In fact, they were too long. I looked quite scary and the lashes bothered me. This one was a "no" for me. If you have short eye lashes, this may work for you. It didn't clump which was good.

Next up was the Dr. Scholls Cozy Cushions Insoles. They would be awesome in boots. I don't have boots. (Why don't I have boots?!?) I may pass these along to someone who wears boots. They are super soft & furry. I'd imagine they will help keep your feet warm!

Lastly was a lotion which supposedly smells like lavender chamomile. I smell Christmas. I'm not sure why. I loved the scent and went around the first day saying "something smells like Christmas". It was me. Haha. 

I would buy this. It isn't super expensive ($8) and the cream goes on thick. This bottle should last me atleast a few months. 

So....that was my box! 

Here was the card they included: 

I received all these product complimentary from Influenster! Thanks Influenster :)
