I am often tasked with taking Riley, our family dog out for his daily walk. If you have kids and a dog, you know how hard it is sometimes to get someone....anyone.... to walk the dog! Our kids are way too busy on the computer or cell phone to make time for poochy, so it often falls on me to take him out. I really don't mind because occasionally good things happen when Riley and I are out walking!
|Riley: Sniffing out eBay finds!|
Arriving home with the Wise Man, camel and my dog, I began the blow mold rehabilitation. Both were dirty and even had some crickets inside of them. But with a little soap and water I got them looking spiffy! I believe in taking care of everything all at once, so after giving both a bath, I took some digital photos then placed them into storage until the holidays.
Once the holidays were upon us, I posted both on eBay. There are quite a few Nativity blow molds on eBay right now but that's to be expected. All the competition didn't hurt the bidding on my auctions. My rescued camel and Wise Man sold for $30 and $35 respectively. Since they were freebies, that was pure profit of $75!
Who would have thought I'd find Christmas inventory while walking my dog in a field? Just another reason why this business is so much fun...you just never know where you are going to find your next treasure!
