This week has been a good one in sales - but I'll talk about them tomorrow. I have found a few interesting things. I have gone out of my comfort zone and bought some children's toys. Not little ones - but great big honking ones that run on batteries. I don't even want to think about packing them for postage, and I haven't even tested these to see if they work, and I certainly haven't looked at the completed's for these. They sit in the corner mocking me, but I am determined to get through my mountains of unlisted Videos and Books that have been there for anywhere up to 6 months.
Here they are. These ones costed me $1 each.
This little thing costed me 50 cents. No books with it unfortunately.
I pounced on this. It screamed retro-80s at me. It costed me $3. When I did some research, I realised that there is supposed to be a booklet that it comes with that actually allows you to *use* the blasted thing. It just beeps and flashes and me when I press the buttons and I'm beginning to wonder if it would fit down the loo. Not sure if it's worth putting up on its own.
I saw this and it was New in the Box, so I forked out $3. When I got home and pressed the "Try Me" button all I heard was the sound of crickets, and some choice swear words. I've never heard of this show. I don't want to take it out of the packaging to test it. I will probably regret buying this one.
Yay, yay! I snapped this one up. The Nightmare game is a good seller, and even though I forked out $4, I know I can get at least $20 for this. This one is in very good condition, so maybe more.
At $2 I couldn't go past the 2000 Sydney Olympics Edition Scrabble. This is also in nice condition.
When I was at my Salvos this morning, I saw this game and passed it by - because it was $5. All their games are $5 or more and they are NEVER half price. *grumble grumble*. I thought I'd go home and research it first - my purse has been on a severe diet lately! Well, then I found these in the completeds:
Aarrgghh! That's what I get for being a tight-wad. And you know I will be scuttling back there on Monday morning when they re-open. Did I place that game at the bottom of the pile, and put others games on top to hide it? *looking shifty* Maybe I did ... Maybe I didn't. (Hint: I did ;-))
I found this little iron trivet - 50 cents - isn't he just gorgeous!! This one is not leaving the house. He will look nice sitting up against the wall on the kitchen bench. I will NOT be placing hot things on his little birdy face.
Those were the only interesting things I got apart from more books and videos. I had some interesting sales, and I will share them with you tomorrow - with perhaps some more information on what videos to look for. I love videos now, they are boosting my sales figures. I'm not sure if kids toys will be my forte, but I am dipping my toe in the pond. It's a little tepid. :-p
