eBay Seller Sucess!

I have been selling on ebay for a few years now, and though I am not a newbie, I definitely do not know everything there is to know about ebay.

Recently my mom gave me a vintage camera lens, sun shade, and light meter from my fathers old camera, she wasn't sure if I could sell it, but I knew I could since it was vintage and it's camera equipment. I did some research on ebay by checking out completed listings to see how much they were going for. I was surprised to see the particular lens was selling between $40-$100. I waited a few days and checked out a few more auctions since I really knew NOTHING about the lens.

I listed it with a regular 7 day auction, nothing fancy, the auction cost me nothing to list and sold for $53.03.

lens & shade = free
selling price = $53.03
ebay fees = (about) $3
profit= (about) $50

Thrift shops/flea markets/garage sales are great places to look for items to sell on ebay! Do you have an ebay success story? Email me at katiecouturexo at cox dot net and maybe I will post your story on here!

Some Exciting News!

I have some super exciting news to share with all of you lovely readers! Yesterday I received a facebook message from telling me that I had been chosen as one of their new beauty bloggers! I applied about a month ago to be part of their VIPretty Ambassadors program.

I am excited to announce that I will be blogging now IN ADDITION to this blog and my nail blog.

I will post the link a little bit later once I edit my page to my liking!

B1G1 Free Soft Scrub!

If anyone knows me and has been to my condo, you know I am cleaning ALL the time! I can't stand a messy house and it drives me nuts when things are not put away.

I was having problems a few months ago with my tub, no matter what product I tried to clean it with, NOTHING cleaned it the way I like it, and it was starting to look gross. My mom suggested Soft Scrub and said it cleans everything, I picked some up at target when it was 2/$5 and haven't looked back! I have 5 bottles in my stockpile, and one under each sink (kitchen and both bathrooms)

Anyway, if you GO HERE and sign up for the Soft Scrub Club, you can print two B1G1 Free coupons for soft scrub cleanser.

After you sign up, you will need to verify you information, on the left side of the page it brings you to, click member exclusive offers, you will need to enter your name and email again and then you can print the coupon twice!

A note about freebies!

As my blog/facebook page become more popular, I have been receiving more complaints about people not receiving samples. I have a few things to say about that.

Not everyone will receive every sample! There are millions of people in the world, and thousands of blogs/websites like mine who love to share samples. There have been samples/freebies that I have wanted very badly and unfortunately have not received them. Most of the time these companies have a limited supply of free things.

If you have not received your sample, and would really like one that much, you can always call or email the company and request one.

Keep in mind, these companies are giving out FREE samples, which means that they are not making any money. They are not obligated to send free stuff to everyone/anyone, they are being generous enough to share whatever they can.

Thank you for all your continued support! I love all my fans & I am so proud to see how my blog is growing!!

Designer Items SUPER Discounted!

A lot of my friends always ask me where I get my designer bags and sunglasses, and how I afford to buy new designer items all the time, so I have decided to write a blog about the websites I use. ALL OF THE ITEMS ARE 100% AUTHENTIC AND ARE NOT ILLEGAL!

I use a few invitation only shopping sites, who have short sales (usually about 72 hours or until stock runs out) of designer merchandise, I have gotten Ed Hardy bags up to 64% off, high end makeup very cheap, and these are the websites I use! They cost nothing to sign up, nothing to be a member of, and you get VERY discounted items! Most of these sites carry designer items up to 70% off!

1. Ruelala
2. Ideeli
3. Beyond The Rack
4. HauteLook
5. Billion Dollar Babes
6. Gilt Group

I personally suggest signing up for all of them since you never know who will have what on sale!!
