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!


Because of my shopping fast, this will be my last FFF post for the year. And it's not even a very exciting one. :)   I shopped a couple times and didn't find anything super-exciting, but I finally found my first Reyn Spooner shirt. I've heard a lot about them, and that they are good sellers, but I've never really ventured into men's clothing before, so I've never actively looked for them. I actually had time to kill one afternoon this week, so I plunked the toddlers into the cart with a toy and browsed the entire men's shirt rack. I found a couple cool Authentic Western cowboy shirts, a men's 2XL Charlie Brown Christmas shirt (which already sold), and this Reyn Spooner shirt. It looks like it was sewn with the fabric wrong side out, but all the seams are on the inside like they're supposed to be, so I guess it was on purpose. Kind of different-looking anyway. I'm anxious to see how this does for me.

Hi all you fellow eBayers, remember me?...Lesley?  I've been busy in the retail world working my day job...tis' the season you know, but I managed to go shopping yesterday and I'm so glad I did.  Christmas was in full gear at my favorite Goodwill.  In fact they had just remodeled it, dividing it into 2 stores side by side (one for clothing/shoes and the other for housewares).  I had the most fun in housewares.  It's was literally Christmas heaven! 

Here are some of my highlights:

Santa Claus was everywhere and here is what hubby and I walked away with.  There's a vintage salt and pepper set (actually 2 sets), a paper mache Santa from Japan, a Royal Daulton mug, and a vintage ceramic Santa ornament.  These I will use throughout the house as decor all the while they are listed for resale.

I was also in need of garland for an area of my home and found some brand new pre-lit garland for $3.99.  I also picked up wrapping supplies and bows (all new) and some unique ornaments like a Jim Shore new in box set of 2 carolers!

This adorable little Santa Claus night light house is now taking up space in my bathroom.  I won't list it because I decided it was an early gift for myself! 

Okay, but what will we make money on.....??

This wooden Santa stands about 4 feet tall.  Hubby actually found this tucked away in a corner. Okay, I admit I don't really want to sell this either because as you can see it looks so cute tucked in at the stairs.  But, hubby and I agreed to put a huge price tag on it and see what happens.  After less than 24 hours there is currently an offer of $150!  Sorry, but I can't part with him for that price! ;)

And no, I'm am NOT a hoarder!

Merry Christmas and Happy eBaying!

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


  1. While I was out shopping at Target last night (taking advantage of their spend $50, get $10 gift card promotion), I was perusing the clearance racks for maternity clothes and sweaters since I had coupons for those when I came across a couple of Missoni items. I had heard that these do well on eBay because of the fact that they were so limited and are now sold out. So, I did a quick lookup of the particular sweater dress I found and there were completed listings that sold for $100. The dress was marked down from $54.99 to $27.48, but when it rang up at the cash register it was an even better deal at $16.48. I also picked up a blouse that was marked down from $34.99 to $11.48. I passed on a pair of XL shorts because I didn’t think they would do well in winter, but I might go back for them. We’ll see how that one fairs. I’ve got these listed and hoping to net a profit to cover my other purchases. Plus I still have my gift card to use! I might check out other Targets for more Missoni treasures hiding amongst the clearance racks. Here is the sweater dress link.

  2. $150 for the wooden santa! Are you kidding?! Wow! Great find! The Reyn Spooner shirt was also a great find. Yes, it is supposed to be that way - it's called "reverse print" - good to include this wording in your listing. I just found a RS shirt yesterday at GW made for the L.A. Dodgers. Earlier this year I sold Reyn Spooner shirts that sold for over $100!! They were for Disney Pixar.

  3. I dont know what you paid for that santa but I would have had a hard time turning down $150 Besides being so tall what makes him special? Just wondering
