Man, I’ve been clearly slacking in the blogging department. My last post was in October?!?!
- I sold the Fendi Peekaboo using eBay’s premier service. Overall, it was a pretty painless process – but as someone who’s been selling on eBay for over 10 years, the loss of control over how much my purse was listed for was a little annoying. Each time it was listed, I saw the price drop another $50. The final selling price was $450 and they only keep and list the bag for 60 days – it sold on the last week they had it before they were going to ship it back to me. I earned 90% of the selling price, I think I signed on right as the promotion to earn that much ended. If I were to send in the same bag now, I think I would earn 80%.Would I use this service again? I’m not so sure. I think I might have earned a little more just listing it myself and being patient – but the professional photos and money-back guarantees were a nice perk of consigning it with eBay. Really, the lack of control over the price was the only major drawback.
- We’re finally on the last room of the house, the dining room. I’ll post a whole before and after blog post of the house once we’re done with it which should be in a few weeks – or whenever the rest of the damn chairs are ordered, arrive and are built 🙂
- I’m turning 32 in two weeks. Um, yeah… that number looks pretty damn intimidating when I typed it out just now. – I still feel 22 (note: I said feel, not look), just way more sure of where my life in its major directions. I’ve really been reflecting on what my 22-year-old self would think if she saw where I am now. And it’s crazy to start to think where I want to be five or ten years from now.
- Did I call that Fendi logo print making a comeback or what?!? It’s been everywhere during fashion week – from pants to tights to even visors. I think it might be time to dust off my bag for the spring.
