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!


This summer is flying by and I'm happy to report I'm spending more time enjoying it than eBaying.  Therefore, not a lot of shopping time in but I did manage to find a few noteworthy things this week... well hubby found one and I found the other.  I'll start with him:

He found a pair of Allen Edmunds mens shoes.  He had bought and sold a pair just last month for around $225 if I remember correctly.  These are well made and highly sought after shoes.

Me: I got my hands on some My Little Pony stuff. I've got the Crystal Rainbow Castle with a ton of extra pony's. The prices were a little all over the map on eBay so I decided to list on Amazon. I've had great success selling toys for higher rate on Amazon. This toy isn't in production anymore so I'm willing to sit on it for a little while until just the right buyer comes along...I imagine right around Christmast time! :)



I'm still holding (kinda) fast to my shopping diet. I am intent on getting this ridiculous mountain of shoes listed. I've listed over a hundred pairs of shoes in the past week and still have about that many more to go. But I did need to take the kids clothes shopping this week. Naturally, our first stop was Goodwill. I got almost everything on our list, so I felt I deserved a little spin around the store for myself. :D I found 2 pairs of shoes (surprise, surprise). My 8 year old found me a Fisher Price tape player. I already have the same one listed, so once I test this one, I'll just change the quantity on that listing. My 11 year old found me a nice puffy girls Rothschild winter coat. I already have the same coat in a smaller size, but I haven't listed it yet. Now's the time to get those winter coats posted! Once I do, I'll be able to do a multi-variation listing for those. I love easy listings!



What did you find this week? Anything exciting?


  1. I found this Harley Davidson Taiwan T-Shirt. I love finding Harley Davidson things to sell and it's neat when they represent another country as well.

  2. Do you buy any kind of Allen Edmonds, or do they have to be in like-new condition? Thanks! I saw a brown pair today but had a lot of scratches and the bottom of the shoe was very scuffed.

  3. Lesley, I have sold on amazon before but new items. I thought you had to have a store to list used items, is this the case? I sold zhu zhus when they were hot and made a ton of money, it was great. The amazon buyer is definitely different than ebay. Thanks in advance. Rebecca
