Best of eBay Week 1

I began my “thrifting to profit” journey this week.

One of my favorite blogs to follow is My Dear Trash. They tell you how they sell on eBay and Craigslist. Yea, yea, yea. Blah, blah, blah.

I know you aren’t impressed yet. You think that isn’t exciting. No I am not selling stuff that I have. It is more exciting than that. I promise, read on.

First, I took my love for shopping to the thrift store and went searching for things that could resale for more. Brand name clothing in great condition, super treasures that you can turn into something beautiful…

Are you getting it? Turning someone else’s trash into treasures, or in my case “thrifting to profit.”

So this week I began selling on eBay…

"Best of this week" highlights


GAP denim overalls.

Purchased at Goodwill for $0.99.

Sold on eBay for $43.00!!!!!!!

What? I bet however took them to Goodwill had no idea.


Calvin Klein denim overalls.

Purchased at Goodwill for $0.99.

Sold on eBay for $15.00


Ann Taylor LOFT dress.

Purchased at ARC for $3.99.

Sold on eBay for $18.00

Now I have not admit that my success on the overalls is due to My Dear Trash. I would have never known that overalls were so hot and probably would have passed them up!

Tune in each week to see future highlights of the “thrifting to profit” journey.

Also check out Kelly and Laura at My Dear Trash if you haven’t already. You will learn so much and see some beautiful trash!

  1. Tracey,
    Thank you so much for the feature! I must say, I'm a little jealous over the Gap overalls- that is simply amazing. I too had to learn the value of overalls from Laura. I've profited over $50.00 in the last few weeks on just a few pair of Cherokee brand (target). Who would have thought? I love your blog. Thanks for the comment.


I love me some comments and appreciate your time in kindness in giving them :)
