Recent sales (June 22 – July 5)

Despite my preoccupation with moving houses during the end of June and the beginning of July, I managed stay organized enough to locate and ship out sales on time. I sold four pieces of jewellery on Etsy (after not selling anything on that platform for the previous two months), and the other nine sales were made on eBay. I detail these sales below:

(Note: the prices listed are the gross profit after accounting for shipping expenses. I haven’t subtracted eBay / Paypal fees, which amount to around 10%).

1. Paragon tea cup and saucer: On eBay for 100$. This was one of my favourites from the collection, and am quite happy with the price it garnered. Found with a large collection of teacups in Ville St Laurent.

2. Vintage Tiki-bar “Coconut Snow” tin: On eBay for 42$. It was a beautiful tin but I’m glad to see it go. Found mid January 2014 in Rosemont.
