What Sold In My Bookshop

Hey friends! I need to work really hard to list all the new stock I have. Every week I round up what sold and calculate how much I made reselling. My goal is to make this a full time income.

1. Henna

Had this for a long time, about a year. It sold for $6 shipped on the Wonderlust Facebook group. PayPal fee was .-47 cents. Shipping cost was $2.80. My profit was $2.73.

2. Nancy Drew – the clue of the velvet mask

I love these yellow Nancy Drew spines they are nostalgic for me. Sold on Mercari for $12. The fee was $1.20. Shipping cost was $2.80. My profit was $8.

I just noticed these are all romance novels! Sold on Depop for $24.46. The Depop fee is $2.48. The PayPal fee was $1.02. Shipping cost $3.33. I made $17.63.

4. To Give A Pig a Pancake, If you Give a Moose a Muffin, if you give a Mouse a cookie

I rescued these from the trash. They are fair and I made sure to describe them. It was $2.99 plus $2.80 for shipping. The Depop fee was .58 cents. The PayPal fee was -.47 cents. I made $1.94.

5. Precious Moments, The BFG, Rainforest Animals

6. Vintage shabby book cover, Nancy Drew, vintage sci fi book

Sold on Depop for $25.95. The Depop fee is $2.60. The PayPal fee $1.40. And I fucked up by trusting someone to ship this (this is his 3rd mistake shipping an item incorrectly after telling him numerous times what to do. His mistake cost me $3.53 and service. It also hurt because I care so much about my business that if he had treated it like his own he would not have been so stupid.)

Shipped for a whole $12.60. I only made $9.35 – less. That is not want I wanted for these items, he basically gave these away with his not following simple directions.)
