Money In Money Out

December 13th, 2012 at 08:52 am

I've made 60.97 selling some clothing on eBay in the last day. I used to sell quite often but then a lady ended up with my expensive dresses and the money too and I took a couple of months off from doing it. I was just disgusted at that point, she got away with about $260. Hopefully that won't happen again!

Sent my brother $700 dollars, he called and asked for a loan, he doesn't ever ask me for anything so I decided to go ahead and do it.

We made tamales for our ladies church ministry group and we ended up selling and making 20 dozen at 7.00 a dozen. We still have orders to fill so we will be spending Sat. making more. It is an all day affair even if you have the meat prepared the night before.

Staying busy, going to my parents for the rest of the day, my mother has a doctors appointment and then going to clean her house but am going to come home tonight so I can list more clothing on Ebay.. Gas costs when I go there are about $30 round trip. Thats why I usually stay a few days and get my groceries there in a bigger town as there is nowhere around me with a decent grocery store.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

    I have never sold anything on Ebay but I thought about giving it a try.
    My sister in law has a store and does very well. Tamales sound yummy!

    I have sold on eBay a lot in the past, but I never send the item before payment clears... it can just lead to a bad situation like the one described. I'm sorry that happened to you! Did you get eBay involved in trying to have some insurance of getting the money back? They can be helpful. Good luck!

    Hi Jerry,
    I did recieve payment from the lady, it was actually my own fault that it happened this way. I sent the dresses out asap to Canada and about three days later the lady started emailing me demanding to know where they were. I had sent them prority international mail. To make a long story short they sat in customs for almost two weeks and I couldnt track them to even customs. As soon as I refunded the lady she picked them up from customs, same day! She never re-paid the item. She is no longer a registered eBay member.
