Imagine my surprise finding this 30+ year old Cabbage Patch Kid at thrift for $1. She even has her hair ribbons! I laundered her clothes and sponge bathed her in Tuff Stuff. It is hard to read on the back of her neck but it appears she was manufactured in 1979.I am not sure if this is her original outfit. I am pretty sure the pants are and I will repair the elastic. Back in the Cabbage Patch kid craze, I was able to wrangle new dolls for both of my kids. I have no idea where those dolls are now.
Reseller update: My latest listing session was new CDs. I also pulled from the listings CDs in the following categories: country, classical, artists over 50 years old, CDs in mass circulation. Moving on to quilt blocks and pieces, here is the best of the bunch.
Even though I made total sales of $1,200 in the past 30 days, my net sales minus taxes, eBay fees, and shipping were $600.
I am not sure what I aspire to but one reseller on eBay business was able to buy a house and use half to store product in the garage and master bedroom, and then rented out the remainder of the house as an air bnb. 😲
In 2021, sewing patterns were 40% of my total sales, books at 24%, and CDs at 19%, with the remainder in needle kits.
Reporting back on sewing patterns pinned to Pinterest. I believe I sold 2 right off the bat from that exposures. I am also testing these listed quilt pieces, and will let you know of the result. https://www.pinterest.com/thriftshpcomndo/tam_gonza-on-ebay-quilt-blocks-and-tops/
I have saved a couple of pieces of patchwork to give away at the upcoming Quilty Orphan Adoption online event in March.
