What to sell Wednesday: Little Tikes Washer Dryer is on Every Girl's Wish List (Apparently!)

I have loved hearing how many of you ARE actually eBay experts now, making a real living at this!  Warms this girl's heart!  So you probably could tell me what I need to be selling!  And if you've got something good, let me know and write me up a nice guest post!

But until you share your nuggets here's one of mine. 

I hate to even write about it because it's a sore subject with me.  I passed one up a couple of Saturdays ago because I didn't feel like getting out of the car.  WHAT?

When I decided I was being a chucklehead I turned around to go get it and three minutes later...yup...that's right.  It was gone.  Chucklehead.

It's the Little Tikes Washer and Dryer toy.  It's hot.  It's old.  It's apparently on every little girls' Christmas list.

Have you seen these in your thrift store hunting?  Gold I tell you.  We're talking buy it now at $150.00 and it's flying off the shelves.

You may be wondering how to ship this gem.  I'm here to say it can be shipped through USPS...I have done it many times...just needs a box that fits it perfectly (which will mean you need to make your own) and it falls into the acceptable dimensions without it being an astronomical cost.

Hope you find one before Christmas!  I'm such a chucklehead!

I graduated from high school just over 20 years ago.  That's right, 20 years.

Twenty years ago my hair was big, I wore scrunchies and I pinched rolled my jeans.  And I was cool.  Or at least I wanted to be cool.  

That's me on the left.  It was drama class.  I wasn't going to hurt that poor girl with the stool, I promise!

Ok so I wasn't very cool.  But I did like school.  I loved sports and writing and having a place to be, though I'm not sure I knew that at the time.  So when the opportunity popped up 20 years later to go back and reunite with some neat people I knew back then, I jumped at the chance.

Me, 20 years later

It was really fun.  But it made me realize that I missed out on some great friendships I let drop without a very good reason.

Here I am to say I don't want to do that again.  I don't want to let my friendship drop with YOU any longer.  A lot has happened over the past year and there are reasons why I disappeared...reasons I probably won't share specifically but my absence will certainly be addressed in the near future.  All I can say is thank you for all of the awesome emails you have sent me over the past year...every week (even last week!) many of you have written me asking me to not stop I'm going to give it another try, ok?

I'm going to blog again about eBay and yard sales and bargains and Charlotte and the girls and all of my other crazy money making schemes.  Cause I had fun doing that and I think you had fun reading about it.  It may not be every day like before, but I won't stay away so long, I promise!  And I can't wait to hear what you all are up to.  I'm sure you're all eBay moguls by now *wink*.

Me, 20 years ago.  My hair was awesome and you know it. 

So let's not let anymore time pass.  Let's reunite and become reacquainted.  'Cause my hair changes moment by moment and I don't want you to miss it.
