My purchase count is up over 200 items. Here's a short list of the types of items that I have won in the last year alone:
- Randy Johnson bobblehead
- a black vest and cowboy boots for Emily & Steven's western themed wedding
- 1,000 Chicago Cubs baseball cards to help create/finish my table project
- a 50' ethernet cable and coupler to hook up the Roku
- numerous baseball cards for others and my own personal collection
Anyway. I sold my first item. I redeemed a diamond embedded baseball card this year as part of one of Topps 2011 promotions. (Yes, I'm 34, and I still collect baseball cards. Get over it.) All attempts to trade the card for a Cub were rebuffed and I decided it might fetch a fair price on eBay. Here's my first listing: click here.
Perhaps the extra unused SUP pump? We don't really need two.
We have 14 pairs of 3D glasses that came with our new television. Um, yeah, that's ridiculous.
I could try selling more baseball cards.
Or perhaps I could make and sell coasters!
What? Coasters? Yep. I've made two sets of two so far. The first set was a pair of the pictured Atlanta Braves as a thank you to a baseball card blogger who sent me some really cool Cubs cards for my table. The second set was a pair of Cubs that I gave to a good friend as a Christmas present. They are made out of the same epoxy resin that I used to make my table and are pretty nice. The second set turned out much better as I tweaked my technique.
Who knows? Either way, I enjoy eBay and the possibilities it holds!
