He messaged me and asked me to wait to ship it until another of my auctions was finished. No problem, of course. Then he asked if I would sell the auction item to him for $150. He was the only bidder at $48, so I ended the listing with option to sell to the highest bidder. I put the $102 in the invoice as an additional charge and he paid right away.

Good deal.

almost all of mine are in the 3-5 pound range.

How much do the boxes you use weigh? I just shipped a pair of boots in a USPS Shoe Box under 3 lbs.... Most are in the 2-3 lb range and Wes uses better boxes then me

^ checking my recent weights now.....but I'm pretty sure 2-3 lbs.

 

Most are 2-3, I did have a Florsheim V-Cleat gunboat that tipped the scales at 3 lbs 3 oz....making it the 4lb category.

Congrats, Wes! From what you've posted about your job, you seemed to have hated it pretty badly. You also seem to enjoy the thrift/flip game and you've done well for yourself. Good luck.

"As it happens, I collect dollar bills with spider drawings on them. But I only collect them in bundles of 1000. How many bundles would you like to offer?"
