Lots of things going on for me right now:

First of all... my sales have picked up since my post. I have been getting at least one sale a day which makes me feel better. On a eBay facebook group I'm in I have been reading about this weird conspiracy for store owners... The talk is.. if the door of your store changes to Blue your sales stop, and if its red you get lots of sales. Anyone heard about this? I haven't even noticed this because I have never seen the door color change... I don't even know what door they are referring to. I think there are alot of weird eBay conspiracies...

This last week I spent 4 days in Utah visiting some family. Of course while I was there I met up with my eBay friend Mandy.. and she took me to the DI (aka Desseret Industries). If you haven't heard of it.. its a very large thrift chain put on by the LDS Church, in a few states. This store was HUGE. I wish I took pictures for my blog. The workers wheel out carts every few minutes and there are people standing around like vultures that attack the carts as soon as they stop rolling. It was absolutely INSANE. I got in a conversation with one guy standing around waiting for carts and he mentioned he was a reseller, and that most of the people there were resellers. I picked up a few things.. but unfortunately I wasn't willing to attack carts of merchandise while my children watch me... terrifying.

Some fav sales of the week:
 Wow Wow Wubbzy Laptop. Paid $1 Sold $21.95 to Australia
 Ralph Lauren Button Up Paid $1 Sold $19.95 FS
 J.Crew Tunic Paid $1.50 Sold $25.95 FS
 This is a funny glass. Its a super tall shot glass with funny pirate sayings on the back. I almost didn't buy this... and it sold so quickly. Paid $1 Sold $18.95 FS



Ok and here is my weird find of the week:
Illuminati Playing Cards... I had heard about Illuminati conspiracies with celebs. Have you heard about how Beyonce and Jay -Z are part of the Illuminati? I had no idea what it really meant until doing some research. Well... its Satan worshiping I guess. Being the religious person I am... listing these made me a little nervous... but I listed them for $50 so that made me a little less nervous.. haha. 
Looking over the cards they look like Tarot cards.. Definitely a BOLO.

And Finally I found out some exciting news recently. We are expecting our third baby!! We decided to keep it a secret awhile... but since I dont know my readers personally and I am dying to tell someone.... here we are! I am kind of in shock still.... and when my first thought when I found out was.... "How in the heck am I going to thrift with 3 in tow?"
Oh the life of a reseller.

  1. !!!!!!!!!!Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's such happy and exciting news!!!! A baby! Yay!!! Thanks for letting your blogging friends in on your little secret. I won't tell ;-)

    I'm glad your sales are picking up. That pirate shot glass is cool. I would've definitely bought that. And those Illuminati cards are pretty neat. A weird find that hopefully pays off.

  6. Congrats on the soon to be new addition to your family! ...and great sales too!

    As for Deseret Industries, I have one near my house, however, I have never seen anything like you described. Was this an actual thrift store or was this more like a Goodwill Outlet where you buy by the pound?

  9. Congratulations! Three is our lucky number and all I can handle, but it's fun! Glad you got to stop in to DI. Deseret Industries is really awesome in how it helps it's employees gain training for other employment. Although their prices have been creeping up lately! I'm in Utah and don't hit them too often, but I have never run into the cart thing? Must never be there at the right time of day!
