MY CRAIGSLIST FIND I'M RESELLING AT THE LOCAL FLEA MARKET

MY CRAIGSLIST FIND I'M RESELLING AT THE LOCAL FLEA MARKET
« on: January 28, 2012, 11:11:41 AM »
I found a lady selling cow skulls on craigslist, yes cow skulls.

She has over 30 for $5 each.  They are plain no horns.

I bought 12 for a total of $60.  My brother in law paints for a living, he paints logo addresses on curbs been doing it for 10 years.  I paid him $5 for each skull he painted for a total investment of $10 per skull.  He painted them college,nfl,state flags etc.

I plan on selling these for $40 each tomorrow at the local flea market and I think they will do well considering I see just plain jane skulls selling for $50 and painted for $80 and up.

Looks good to me. I would rather have a plain jane one though.

Would wish you luck but from your other post don't think you need any.  ;D

We are heading out to the Flea have a wide assortment of stuff. Will see what walks away.

A guy offered me $150 for 5 and I couldn' say no to that.  Since I only have 7 left I think I will be raising my price to $60 each.  The lady I bought the skulls from found out what I was doing and won't sell me the rest.  I guess I should have bought them all yesterday.

What the heck does it matter what you are doing with them!?

More important, what did she think you WERE gonna do with 10 cow skulls?!!

Just tell her you lied. In actuality your just using them for simple satanic rituals. That's all. Move along. No money being made here.....

I agree, I bought them at HER asking price, not my fault she been sitting on them for 6 months and can't come up with ssomething creative.

You know how it is at the flea, other vendors will help you unload your truck just to have 1st pick of your stuff.  If I sell it to you for $5 and you turn around and sell it for $10 what do I care?  I made what I wanted off of it, she is just being greedy lol

Some people just get weird that way.  I think its a cool idea and your making a profit so all is good. Is she still selling them or just not to you?

Way to go, though!!!

She said her brother painted all of them (20 plus) and sold them all yesterday.  I highly doubt that.

I thought about that but she is 30 miles away and I don't have any friends in this area that would do it or has means of transportation to get there.  I'm sure she is cleaning them up and getting them painted somehow to try to sell.  After I posted my ad she took hers down.

A week later and I am down to 1 skull. I sold 7 to 1 guy for $200 total, one for $30 and I repainted 2 for a Superbowl party, Giants and New England sold the pair for $120. I gave one away to my BIL and I have one left.  Total investment $10 per skull gross sales on 10 is $350.  Not bad.
