Closing my antique mall booth + new goodness at auction on eBay this week...

Today I emptied out my booth at the mall - I actually made the decision a couple of weeks ago to close it down. :( I did the math for 2014, including factoring in what I paid for the items that sold, and came up with my average monthly profit - $45.00. If the mall was closer to where I live, I could have justified keeping it, but the hour total drive time to get there and back is what made me finally decide to give it up - I'll go into more details when I post my January booth report later this week...

In better news, this month there have been several really good estate sales - yay! So I've got some good stuff up at auction on eBay, with more to come. :)

Antique Mall Booth Update - December 2014

I ran a 20% off sale in my booth all month - the first 2 weeks things sold like crazy, the last 2 weeks there were tumbleweeds rolling around in the small amount of empty floor space that I've got... Besides that, my bouncy horse didn't sell - and I thought for sure he would go at Christmas. :( Overall an OK month though, so I guess I can't complain too awful much...
