Like usual, I have been having a blast at thrifting. However, I think that the winter months bring more people into the thrift stores, which makes my job a little harder. The treasures are being picked before I can even get to them.
I haven’t went home empty-ended though. I like to sell just about anything. Clothing is my favorite thing to sell though because it’s so easy to ship. Anything vintage is always a fun profit too because it’s usually something that is rare and has a history… Kind of like my first find:
Vintage Misty Lane Retro Hippie Maxi Dress from the 60’s/70’s.
Complete with boho embroidery and mutton sleeves, this dress is killer. I also love the yellow and pink color combination!
Free People out the wazoo.
Honestly, everyone goes on and on about how awesome Free People is for them to sell. I must be the only one that seems to have issues with getting rid of the stuff.
I recently found these two Free People waffle knit tops and they both sold within a day or so of having them listed:
The rest of my Free People items have been super hard to get rid of though. For example, this awesome hand painted poppy cold shoulder dress is one-of-a-kind, beautiful, but has been impossible to sell!
Dimensions Gold Collections: Enchanting Pegasus Cross Stitch Kit #35023
Not many people realize that a lot of needlecraft kits can be worth big bucks. I thrifted this Pegasus kit, which had been opened and was missing the needle (but otherwise complete). After researching the solds on Ebay, I was super excited to find that previous ones sold for the low $100’s! Even without the needle, I accepted an offer of $90!
