1st locker purchased and sold
« on: November 07, 2011, 04:50:49 AM »
Bought our first locker on OCT. 26 for $30.00. Small locker full of kids clothes, 2 strollers, 2 heaters. Had our yard sale (parking lot of thrift store). Total yard was $300.00 over two days. Cost for the parking lot was a bike we would have sold for $20.00. The income from the $30.00 locker was $90.00. so not a bad return on our money.  ;D. Still have an estimated inventory from locker of $150.00. We had our personal stuff that needed to unload so we purchased this locker to fill up our tables.
IMO to all the noobies myself included don't just get rid of all the clothes you find, good filler for yard sales. and brings in some cash. Clothes take a little bit of time but money is money.
Sold all the clothes for .50 each at that price people will dig through it.
Kids jackets $3.00
Denim $2.00
Heading out this week to the Auctions with our made seed money.  :)
Just an update.
Forgot we traded an old CB radio and booster for Two Camcorders
Sony 10x Handy Cam CCD-FX330 Works
JVC Compact VHS  GR-SXM920U  missing power cord.. So don't know if it works or not.

That is a nice ROI.  I have found I make my money back and/or some money from the under $100 lockers then my other lockers.

Good hunting this week.

Good to hear.  as long as you are in the black and not in the red, you are in good shape.
