Stopped by the Goodwill Yesterday

I took a side trip to the Goodwill yesterday and had a look.  My intentions were to look for collectible coffee mugs that I can flip on eBay.  In the past, I have had pretty good luck with reselling mugs and other stuff on eBay.


Here are a few things I found at Goodwill yesterday.  The Estee Lauder Box is a reasonable size and needs a bit of cleaning.  The inside smells like Estee Lauder products.

The grandkids will enjoy the Legos.  They are going to soak a bit as they have a bit of a musty odor.

I did find this NIB beverage warmer for .69 cents.  Maybe it was a white elephant gift that was not appreciated?  We tried it out this morning and it works!

This Nativity set is stinking cute.  The blues are vibrant and the pieces are smooth.   It may be a keeper.  But, that was not the purpose of stopping at Goodwill.  I do intend to list this set and sell it on eBay this weekend.

I am keeping this 99 cent plate for next Easter.  It is from World Market.

It has been a hot minute since I have been to the Goodwill for the specific purpose of finding items for eBay.  I will be cleaning up the Estee Lauder box and listing that, and the Mexican Nativity set.  

Baby steps! 

What are your thrifty finds?

Ebay again?

It's been a looonnng  time since I posted about on this blog.  Funny, I have not been active on eBay in so long.

But, I recently I have thought long and hard about getting back into eBay and earning a side income.
Last night, I reactivated my domain name, Happy Girl Thrift, which will take you to my eBay store.  It is currently empty..... for now.

 We are recovering from hurricane Irma and are cleaning up limbs.  Stay Tuned.....

Fun Finds This Weekend



The weekends go by so darn fast, don't they? This past Saturday, I passed by a large yard sale on the way to an adoption event for my foster pups. I dropped off the pups(with the help of my grandson) and we headed over to the yard sale.


Here is a picture of yard sale from the front seat of car.



Not the best picture, but it gives you a visual. There were two rows of tables with lots of cool stuff.

I did get some of it listed this weekend:


Marwal head. I don't have much experience with these....
But I bought both. They are striking!

This little bank is the 40's-50's. It was an advertisement for Seamen's bank. My research tells me that McCoy made them. Do you have any insight?

Can never resist a mug. Ever.



To carry on the calvacade theme... Sheet music of George M Cohan. Love the James Cagney movie " Yankee Doodle Dandy"!


There were a few more items that I picked up. Will post them later this week.

Hope you found lots of cool stuff too!!

Happy Saturday!






Still not much thrifting going on here.  But that is okay.  It is hard to do something well when you are not motivated.  I do have lots to list so I can stay busy with that.  I just have to get started.  There have been some distractions this week.  Most of them involving settling my mom's estate.  You just never know the secrets that are waiting to be discovered. 

Fall is in the air here in Central Florida.  The temps are more manageable and the humidity is decent.  I cannot wait for the cool weather to finally get here.  The heat this year was intense!

Today the foster pups are going to an adoption event.  I hope they find their forever home.  They are both so darn cute that if they stay much longer I may have to just keep them!






We have a ladies luncheon at church today.  My daughter, granddaughter and myself are going.  I think it will be great fun.   The church ladies (in our Sunday School class)  have opened their hearts to us and we are blessed to be a part of their group.

The Church Ladies!




Here is a shout out to the Top Five Referring Sites for Happy Girl Thrift!

 








   
 
 










Have a great Saturday!!

I Got Nothing!

This pic doesn't make sense for this post, but I love it!

 

It is unusual that I have not been thrifting for the last few days. I have not had the desire to look at all. There is definitely NO listing going on. Man, you have to be consistent thrifting and listing to make a buck or two! There have been other things going on that have needed my attention.

 

I am looking forward to things settling down so I can get back in the thrifting groove again.

 

Have you all ever " hit a wall" with your thrifting and re-selling? What do you do to get out of the funk? Please share!!
