I had another good week on ebay and etsy.  Etsy was the big surprise, pulling in $50.00!  (usually I'd make that much in a month or two.)  I signed up for Etsy ads for $5.00 for the week and I'd say that it paid off.  I'm going to continue with them this week and see what happens.  My mom said she'd be interested in seeing what I paid vs. what it sold for so here are some high (and low) lights.  Remember that ebay & paypal take about 11.2% (combined) of the final value fee & shipping costs so while I might have sold an item for 19.00, I will only make 16.00 or so if the shipping costs were 6.00.  (Etsy is much cheaper with only a .20 listing fee and NO final value fees so it's a great little money maker.)

There were also other sales that I didn't include here.  I didn't figure out my final weekly total yet but I think it's around $180 profit again....that's after my costs, ebay costs and Nicky child care costs.  :)  Not a bad week for doing what I love!

Did this bore the poop out of you??  Sorry.  :)
