Last week we posted an article about some purchases we made at a local auction. I am pleased to report that we have already flipped part of the purchases from that auction.
I am even more pleased that this sale is the highest dollar sale that we have had since we began selling on eBay.
The picture above is of one of the twelve plates that we sold as a set. I initially listed each of the plates individually. That changed when somebody sent us a message asking if we would make a deal for all twelve of the plates.
After some back and forth negotiating, we settled on a price. I created a new listing for all twelve plates and the customer bought the plates a few minutes later.
On the night of the local auction, we arrived a few minutes earlier to check things out. I quickly spotted these twelve plates spread out in a circle on a table that was being sold.
The plates didn’t make it to the auction block until the last half of the auction. Somebody opened up the bidding very low. I made the next bid and nobody else bid again. The plates were mine for $15 or $1.25 per plate.
Here is the screenshot from eBay which shows the sale price.
$15 for $250 (less fees). I’ll take it. I’m thankful to my fellow eBayer and teen years’ friend, Caline for some helpful info that she provided about these.
