Shipping Time

Well,  I sent the seller an invoice about one minute after the auction closed and they paid about three minutes after that.  But then it was Saturday and I couldn't ship it until today.  I have got the coat all packed up nicely in a box I got from a shipment I received earlier.  I wonder how much it will cost to ship?
Ah,  about 38 bucks.  Brutal.

Sold (Again)

It sold again after a 1 day auction.  For only 212 bucks. Sad face here.  There is no good protection for sellers on Ebay.  If I wanted to press the issue it could take a whole lot of time,  and I want some money for Christmas!  Anyways life continues unabated.

Bidder's Remorse

Hah,  well apparently the bidder "accidentally" bid on my coat.   They sent a bunch of messages over 3 hours of how they did not bid on the item.  Well, you see, things don't just bid on themselves.  This person is an idiot!  I will publish their name later.

Oh my goodness!  In the last few minutes the price has gone up to $343.88.  Totally unexpected and a great Christmas present to myself!  I have included a picture of the coat. 

Bought - $20
Sold - $343
Profit - $323


Selling Stuff!!!

I used to dislike going to thrift stores, but not anymore!  I saw this fur coat which looked really soft.  It was selling for $20 and I thought it was really cheap.  So I bough it, and left it in the closet for a month.  Once I finally realized that I wouldn't actually be cutting it up to turn it into a cloak,  I put it up for sale on Ebay.  It started at $100, and now sits at $255.  I am flabbergasted.  I didn't actually expect it to sell at all.  One hour left in the auction.  Will post updates.  I have the thrift store bug.  I want to go back right now and find some deals.  This is showing early signs of becoming an obsession.
