My sister Audrey found a pair of Marc Jacobs sunglasses in a local college bathroom. They're currently on ebay, hopefully getting lots of bids. What people will pay for a namebrand always amazes me. If I didn't know that Marc Jacobs was a fancy name, I would have stuck a 50 cents sticker on them for our garage sale.
We're in total "sell mode" over here. Our garage sale is coming up this weekend, and we have nearly four tables stocked full of things we're going to sell. I'm pretty excited - I love garage sales. Last summer we had one at our house and earned $120 - just for getting rid of things we don't need. I was quite pleased. We ordered some amazing Buffalo chicken wings as a celebration, but the rest went to bills.
This year...we'll be doing the same thing. No blowing the money on fun things. I'm hoping to double our earnings (listen to me, all business mode). I'm so close to paying off my school loans - so all the money earned will be chunked into that payment.
On other news, my etsy account has hit a small low. Lots of views, but no buys since day one. I need to fix this...not sure how. Better pictures? Better products? Stick to ebay? Maybe I should start sewing some pink scrubs. Those are so cute...I'd buy them. And I could make them for less than $25...just saying. But for the more manly people, I would have to make more manly colored things. But I'd need a model for that...
