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!

Well I must say that I'm pretty proud of myself right now. Not because I found anything great to share with you, but because I'm updating this blog from my iPhone. If you know me than this is a big deal! :)

I have a big shopping trip planned in 1 weeks. I will be heading down to VA and am already mapping out some hot spots. I hope to find lots of great things to share here with you!

In the mean time...happy eBaying!


Yay for road trips, Lesley! I've got one planned for next week too. I'm almost caught up on all my unlisted items. Surely I'll get them done in the next week before leaving.

I just found a bunch of my regular run-of-the-mill stuff this week. A few turntables, several pairs of shoes, another Alf.  I guess I'm most excited about the Alf, because he's always good for a quick 30 bucks or so. But I'm also pretty excited about my suede mary jane Keens. I don't know that I have ever found any Keens myself. All the ones I've sold have been ones my sister-in-law found for me. And these are cute!


What about you?  If you found something this week that you are excited about please share your enthusiasm here!!


  1. I want an iPhone!! My friend(who has one) calls it her WonderPhone...I wonder how you can keep the costs down! I found a bunch (3) of short wetsuits, the thinner kind worn at Triathalons, or just to keep warm boogie boarding or at swim lessons for kids...hope the adult ones (2) will go for $25-30, the kid's one for maybe $9-15. Not bad for a few dollars at the GW Outlet! An unopened AG craft kit. And a Star Wars ABC board book in great condition--the geek in me loves it!

  2. I was thrilled to find 2 CAbi dresses that are brand new. Let's hope they bring me some good money soon on ebay!

  3. I would also love an Iphone or a phone with internet. But we really watch how much we spend and it seems like it can or would cost so much to add internet to a phone plan.

  4. I don't have an iPhone, but I do have an Android-powered smartphone. It took me awhile to justify the cost, but truly, it MORE than pays for itself each month. My total bill is around $70/month. If I use it to look up 2 $35 items each month that I wouldn't normally have bought, then that month's bill is paid. I also use it to check email and sales while I'm away for the weekend. This helps me stay on top of my customer service, which helps my feedback. If you're on the fence about it, then I'd definitely recommend it.

  5. We just got Boost Mobile which is Sprints Pre-paid cell phone plan. It's $50 a month, including taxes. Unlimited talk text and web.

    There's also other pre-paid phones via Virgin, T-Mobile, and even Wal-mart.
    We were paying $60 with only unlimited phone calls, so now we are saving $20/month together with better plan.
    Check it out. I should get paid to say all this...
