Fantastic Finds Friday

We want to hear all about your Fantastic Finds! This features isn't about your exciting sales. It's about your exciting finds! There are so many places to find inventory: your closet, your garage, a yard sale, thrift stores, a consignment item you're selling for someone else. What did you find this week that you are excited about? It can be something you're excited to get listed OR something you're excited to keep! You can even post to your listing, if you'd like. Free advertising!


Having made out like a bandit shopping the last two weeks, this was the week I found nothing really.  But, that's okay.  You see that is to be expected.  Running a business isn't always fun, things don't always magically appear and everything doesn't smell like roses all the time.  The key to being successful in any business is perseverance!  However, all was not lost. 

This morning I still got up out of bed in the relentless rain and headed out for the yard sales.  Again, nothing....oh but wait.  I found a train table for my neighbors little 2 year old.  I know they have been looking for one and when I spotted it, I took this photo and messaged her if she wanted me to pick it up for her.  So I didn't find anything for myself, per se, but I will be thrilled to see the look on little Peyton's face when he sees what new toy he has! :)

Imaginarium train table with storage drawer.
Yard sale price $25.


I'm counting today's finds. I went out yard saling and got a bunch more great Gymboree sweaters, mostly 2009 and 2010. But the best part was when we got to a church yard sale just as they were closing up. They were just GIVING stuff away. The first thing I spotted was a set of these. That listing is mine from last week. The set I found today is still in the box, so I will probably ask a few more dollars for it. She tried to give it to me, but I insisted that she take the (whole entire) $1 that she had on it.  I just didn't feel right taking it for free knowing I'd turn around and sell it for $50 or more.


What did you find this week? Anything exciting?
