The best thing We Sold On EBay ~ #2 CHALLENGER STS-9 SPACE SHUTTLE MUG
Recently I came across a great new blog, "Goodwill Haunting". She highlights some of her great finds that have really been money makers for her. My husband and I have also come across some great finds too and we wanted to share them with you.
Buy It Now Price: $12.99 Sold: $12.99
Paid: .20 cents From Garage Sale
Ended: October 2011 Winner: Washington State
This is the garage sale purchase that just keeps giving. A few months ago, after I dropped off my grand son, I hit up a few garage sales in her neighborhood. This particular sale was small, but you should never discount a small sale. As I was looking through their stuff I spotted this cardboard box full of Space Shuttle memorabilia. There were 16 coffee mugs that documented different space shuttle missions. There was also paper memorabilia that relates to the different missions, about 12 pieces. And last but not least there were a couple of space shuttle stick pins and belt buckles.
Originally, the box was marked $2.00 per item. Well, it was getting late in the day and I asked him what he would take for the whole box. He thought it about it and then he said $10.00. Easy decision... SOLD!! This was a great deal for me. I have all the items listed and for a $10.00 investment, I have grossed to date, $ 159.00. We still have about 8 mugs left, and some of the paper memorabilia as well.
