Flea Market Success!

My goal is to make $1000 for our mini trip to Gatlinburg, TN for the 4th of July! So far I have made $705!!! Yay!
What the best thing about this is, I'm decluttering my house! I still have some more to do to!

Here is some of the items I bought Saturday at some yard sales and resold on Sunday at the flea market! 

Kathy Van Zeeland pocket books  sold for $20.00 each!!! I paid $2.00 a piece for them!
 Vera Bradley sold for $15.00! I paid $2!
This one sold for $10! I paid $2!
The pink and black Nike shox sold for $20.00 and the black and silver pair sold for $15.00! I paid $5.00 each!
So, I paid $18.00 for everything and made a profit of $82.00!
Cha Ching!
Here's a couple of pictures after most of my good stuff was already sold! My camera went dead too. I couldn't even get my stuff out of the boxes, people was already digging in them.

I still have some more stuff to go through in my house and I think I can reach my goal pretty easy!

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday!!!

Warning! I cant spell ladies, so please pay no attention to that! In school all I cared about was big hair, boys and colorguard! ha!

Jessica @ This Blessed Life said...

Good for you - that's awesome! I love finding stuff for cheap at yard sales and reselling it at my local consignment shops - you've made a ton more money than me, though! haha
