May was good to me! I was about four dimes shy of $1,300 in sales, which is the best I’ve done since January of this year. My inventory is now as high as it’s ever been at 139 active listings this morning. I attribute the increase in sales (and inventory) to adding about an extra hour of thrifting time each week, and going out to stores farther away from me that I hadn’t visited before.
Number of items sold: 42 (down 3 from last month)
Average selling price: $35.63 (up $10.39 from last month)
Total profit: $848.37 (up $93.41 from last month)
Another note before I post the numbers: I’ve been highlighting the “good news” above in green and the “bad news” in red. You’ll notice that all three are in green, even though I sold fewer items this month than last. However, my average sale price has gone up enough to more than make up for that specific deficit. Basically, I did less work but made more money this month than last month–works for me!
My best sale was this new with tags plus-sized skirt from the brand Stizzoli. I paid $4.49 for it, and it sold for $99.99. It was listed as free shipping, but since it sold to someone in Canada, the buyer paid shipping.
