Is anyone else starting radiation in October? I was supposed to start today but it took them so long to do the x-rays and more markings that they mercifully postponed the treatment until tomorrow--which is October. I will be having 30 treatments over six weeks.

Good morning, ladies. I have a buyer wanting a refund on one of the most expensive purses. Oh well. It is one I like and maybe, once I have it back I will keep it. It is 41 this morning. I wanted to stay in my nice warm bed. LOL

It is hard to learn all these platforms. I think that's why I'm slow to post on Ebay. I can barely find the place to post my items.

I've decided to host our family's reunion here in Jax. I must have been drunk when I did it. :) Anyways, I just sent out 100 email invites and addressing 225 envelopes for those without email addresses. Usually we have between 75 - 150 people that attend. Not sure about with COVID. Most of our activities are outdoorsy.

I'm also preparing for my garage sale that I'm having on 12/3 and 12/4. I didn't realize how much stuff I have. Also, since I lost the weight, I have tons of clothes but they don't usually sell well. Hope I don't have to bring all that stuff back inside.

Kamboka, Good luck with the garage sale. Wow. That is a big reunion. It is warm and pretty today. I have a dentist appointment and meeting up with a friend, cousin in-law, for lunch. We will probably go to Crystal River and wander along the river walk.

Petite! - That walk sounds wonderful to me! It's been in the 40s as highs here and 20s overnight. But today is supposed to get up to 60 degrees!! Yay! I think a coworker and I are going for a walk at lunch.

Kamboka - Wow, you have a large family. Do you stay in touch with each other? I have a large family on my mother's side and we would have about that many people. But we're not that close anymore since the family grew that large. I keep in touch with some and usually only see/talk with some of them at funerals.

I've been selling about 1 item most days. Hoping to get more than that a day but I will take it. Before Q4, I was only selling 2 or 3 a week. Yesterday, I went to my thrift shop at work. They are only open 1 day a week since COVID hit. It was packed! I went right to the electronics section but the pickers/resellers were out in full force! It is a small space and while I was looking at things, one gentleman came and said he was going to squeeze into that space too (it's a very small space). I think he wanted me to leave but I wasn't budging! I looked at a number of items that either weren't good sellers because of what they are or there wasn't hardly any money to be earned because of the price they wanted so I left everything go. Except I had wanted to look at 1 item and I picked it up and put it down and forgot to check it. A younger woman came (after the gentleman left) and wanted in that space too. I left and she went right in and was looking at items. She scurried past me a few minutes later with her arms full of ALL of the items I had been looking at! Including the item I hand put down and forgot to look up! That made me realize 2 things: 1) Never put down anything until you decide you don't want it because it can be snatched by someone else and 2) I'm growing as a seller because I recognized that those items that girl grabbed were items that you can only make any money on if they were free. Progress! They did have a free table outside and I picked up a few of books that I should get about $ 75 or more for.

mocame, Wow. That sounds like a crowded store. Some of the estate sales and garage sales are like that. I have sent my items down to pay for them and people have grabbed them. The sellers usually say something. My BFF and I were at one group yard sale. She bought an item and someone followed her and made her an offer. She sold it for $10 more than she paid for it. LOL

Today my BFF and I are going out of area to a shopping center with several chain stores. (I am rural we have Walmart, Dollar General and Bealls). So it is an adventure. I don't usually find any thing in those stores, but I enjoy looking at the clothes and fashion stuff. I will probably pick up some guy stuff for husband, BIL, and nephews, and Brother.

mocame: Your comment about 'growing' in the business rang true to me as well. At the beginning I was buying up all kinds of stuff that doesn't sell well. Now, I'm trying to be more discriminate. I'll only buy if it's something I want in my house or I think I can get a profit. I'm happy to hear that both of you are getting some sales now. Maybe people see that the stores don't have what they need so they turn to Ebay.

I try to keep those things I'm interested in with me to the end and then I'll put it back if I change my mind. Most of the estate sales companies now provide either a basket for items or a closet to set you items down. So far, no one has taken my items from the closets.

When I do my auctions, I try to go to auction houses that don't special in what I want as they sometimes have the item but because no one knows that or cares, I can sometimes get the item cheaper. For example, I get lots of coins in auctions selling other things and not just coins.

petite1: Sounds like fun to have a shopping day with your friend. I hope you had a nice lunch that went along with the shopping trip.

Kamboka, My shopping did not go as planned. I couldn't find what I wanted for gifts, but I found a few articles of clothing for myself. Saturday we are going to the seafood festival in Yankeetown. Vendors set up along the main road and I usually find some treasures. There are a couple community yard sales we will hit while we are there. I also will check the Crystal River mall for the gifts I want to get. Rural King is the main store. It was a nice mall 25 years ago with Sears, JC Penny's, chain jewelry stores, shoe store, clothing shops, but all gone, now. Sad

It so weird that most malls are gone. I remember their heyday. I've got five estate sales tomorrow. I actually don't like shopping in stores as it requires so much walking and in the past, my back was hurting and I'd be in so much pain. I can do the walking now but since we are having our Thrifty Gifty Green Christmas Exchange, I only need to talk to my estate sales. I did note about three neighborhood yard sales for tomorrow. If I have time, I'll hit some of them. I'm leaving very early Sunday to go to my mom's for the week. I still have to work three days while I'm there.

At my mom's house in TN. Drove about six hours today to go to my dad's grave to clean it and place flowers. The sun was out and it was a nice drive. Mom got to see an old friend that she hadn't seen in years since she moved after dad died. A nice day all around.

I picked up a few things from the vendors at the festival. I lost one of my packages I was mailing Monday. It did not make it to the post office, so I am hoping to find it some where in the house. I went ahead and sent the person a refund. I have looked every place that I could pick of.

Petite1 - I hope you find it! I have had to move almost all of my inventory I had been storing in my daughter's room since she is home now for Thanksgiving break and will be home again in 2 weeks. I'm hoping I remember where I put stuff if it sells.

Kamboka - I hope you have a great time with your mom.

My sales dropped off to zero now. I'm hearing that from other sellers too so I'm hoping people are just waiting for Black Friday to shop. I'm at my highest amount of inventory I have ever had so far and I want these things to go!

mocame, I still haven't found it. I have checked drawers, boxes, my pockets, under the bed, my purses and the purses for sale. The buyer seems understanding and has bought from me before. I have until the 27th to cancel the label.

I hope both of you had a great Thanksgiving! I have been so busy between working full-time, Thanksgiving, Christmas, ebay, and my kids being home for a week that my head is spinning. My sales have picked up but I wish it was still more than it is. I sold 5 things over the weekend. Last Wednesday, the thrift shop at work had a Fill A Bag for $5.00 sales and I stuffed that bag and I am excited for what I got. I just don't have time to list anything.

Petite - Did you find it in time to ship?

Kamboka - How was your time with your mom?

mocame, Everything has shipped and I found the missing watch and it has shipped. Still trying to sell all those purses, but I am in the profit mode. Every time I think well this hasn't sold, maybe I will keep it, it sells. That sounds like a good sale. I am going to one on Thursday, after my PCP appointment. I am hoping for some good stuff.

Kamboka, How was Thanksgiving?
