Thrifty Cheapskate eBay Friday Followup 12/16/11

What a week it has been. Hard week in my life in my personal life. Sunday evening I found my brother face down on his apartment floor unresponsive. I had tried to call him for several hours to arrange lunch date next day. Trip to hospital in ambulance and is in the hospital in critical / guarded condition. He is now breathing on his own but in a coma. We have hope that he will come through this. They are leaning towards the belief that he had a seizure.
So my thoughts and time has been spent with him. Pray for my little brother Dave.
I have not really been busy listing much this week and have not been out hunting at all which is understandable. No auctions or thrift stores for us.
We have had sales this week and some real good sales from items we had listed all ready.
Hubby sold the Jerusalem Bible 1966 printing for $29.99 on eBay fixed price, there was a small Free Mason book collection for $80.00 plus other books and barbie items. The week totaled out at $218.00.
Amazon sales $34.00 for the week.

So with a update on on sales this week and asking for your prayers for my brother I will leave you for now.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.. Grace

I have been hearing about the great success of those who find and sell UGLY Sweaters. As I search for them I never seem to come across them. All of a sudden last week I did find 4 that I felt kind of fit.
Of course Christmas is almost here and it is a little late to get on the band wagon. I did buy them and listed them on eBay for 5 days. They did not sell but that is fine. I will just keep them for now and continue to hunt for more UGLY Christmas sweaters and start to sell them next September.
The ones I found are not as ugly as some I see on eBay but all in all they can be quite humorous.
These are the sweaters I found, all were either $2.00 or $3.00 each so a thrifty find.

Do you wear ugly sweaters to office parties or any Christmas parties? I have a sweat shirt that my grand daughters gave me over 12 to 14 years ago. My son had their names with hand prints put on it. The baby is foot prints. I love and treasure it and wear it every Christmas. Ugly in its own way but also a special treasure from my kids.

Thanks for stopping by.. lets keep saving together..Grace
