Sales Post - Decluttering + destashing  

Virtual Garage Sale

Money's a little short this month so I'm hoping to sell off some books and clothes and things and make a few dollars. Prices don't include shipping; if you want something, just reply to this post or e-mail me at fashion . piranha at gmail . com

Feel free to bargain, the more you plan to buy the more flexible I am on pricing.  I prefer Paypal, but can also take money orders and checks, but then you have to wait an extra week for everything to clear before your stuff ships.

CLOTHES
Since my clothes listing is very image-intensive, I've given it a separate entry.  Click here to look around.  Mostly gorgeous Lip Service at the moment.

SKINCARE
Bath Stuff
$3 each, 6 for $15
Disclaimer: I'm not sure of the dates on any of these. They've been stored in a hatbox; they may be crumbled or faded. If you want photos, ask and I'll try to take them, but they're cheap for a reason. Several from the UK are stickered shut in a paper bag; I haven't opened them so I don't know their condition.

Will it be hard for you to part with some of these items? I just had a garage sale and it was almost painful to have some people try to bargain me for $1 for things I used to love. But being a garage sale on a hot day, towards the end I just wanted them to take it all so I wouldn't have to move any of it back.
Suzik00kaburra on April 27th, 2009 03:21 pm (UTC)
I"m not particularly attached to any of these, I think (the books are all titles I planned to 'move along' anyway, and most of the clothes don't fit correctly) so I doubt I'll have any problems. I don't think I'll get a lot of bargainers on the web :-p
captured: The exact feeling.[Fallen by aido]capuu on April 29th, 2009 06:31 pm (UTC)
I would like:
Butterball Shower Gel 500g (exp Jun21-09) - $35
Gold Frankincense & Beer Jelly (exp 12/08) - $4

But I would also like to wait and see on those upcoming soaps, hopefully add something and place them all in one order.

Did I ever THANK YOU for those samples earlier this year? Seriously, thank you very much. I thought you were going to hold off till I could tally my etsy soap and maybes we could trade, but then your package just appeared in the mailbox. oO; Surprised me!
Suzik00kaburra on April 29th, 2009 11:53 pm (UTC)
:D I'll hold those for you, and I'll let you know when the soaps go up :) Glad the samples made it to you! At that point I just wanted to clear out my 'stash' because stuff was expiring soon and I was not going to be able to use it all. That's pretty much still happening :-p
capturedcapuu on May 1st, 2009 10:31 pm (UTC)
I'll take the:
Reincarnate Shampoo – 4.3 - $5.38
Jungle Hair Conditioner (cut piece) – 5 oz - $6.25
HIWTK Solid Perfume (exp. Feb09) - $5
and a Noriko Soap – 3.5 oz - $10.

Thanks for the heads up. ^_~ Paypal to where?
