You're axing your way through the profit barrier already ;)

Hope 2019 is a great year for you! x

if you made videos of how you find this stuff. I would watch it
No real magic Cas. Just know what I'm looking for and a lot of searching at car boot sales and other places. Thanks for the kind words and I hope you also have a great year.

Just sold 4 little picture frames that cost 50p each for £11.99. As I have said before picture frames always sell. Not a fortune, but it all goes in the coffers.

Love this. Know this isn’t really your field but do you ever go into Home Bargains? They’ll be having a lot of discounts on branded things at the minute with Christmas just finishing. Lots of profit to be made there.

Always a bit slow in January and I have not listed much. Just sold a saw that cost me £1 for £9.99 so, a profit of £7.77. Not a fortune, but they all count.

You could do well with frames. I (usually) only pay 50p each and look for metal ones or ones with a bit of ornamentation. I find them in charity shops and car boots.
@Dick Barton and you then sell them on eBay? Do you have any particular marketing strategy or is your eBay sales pitch just a standard description with a low starting price?

Talking of picture frames remind me of early last year when I bought a really stylish Rococo frame for a give away price of 50p. It fetched £25.

Good, so far this weekend. Found a small, saddlers tool and purchased for 20p last week and sold for £50 today!
Your cash toolbelt will be full in no time!

I love seeing how you're getting on - thanks for sharing!

I also love following this post, I have a total lack of imagination when coming round to looking for stuff to resell.

Just sold number 3 of some plates I bought. Got a lot of 4 for £1 (crazy) and all 3 have brought in £45. Have one to go with slight damage so, maybe another tenner. I'm not a plate man, but picked up on spec.
