Tuesday, as I was pricing items for my garage sale, I pulled out some unopened DVDs and some popular book titles. I had read that the local bookstore would buy back up to 20 items at a time for 20% of the resale value in cash or 30% of the resale value in store credit. I gathered the 20 items I thought might sell and headed over to the store with my bag full.
It was super easy, I just filled out a slip with my information and browsed the store while they processed my items. When I returned they had only rejected three books and I had over $40 in store credit. Whoopee! I considered asking for 20% in cash, but I knew that someday I’d get the urge to splurge and now I have $40 to do so at the bookstore.
I certainly received more store credit than I would have gotten in cash at a garage sale and I think I have more items I can sell to them. Now, if only I hadn’t purchased the items to begin with, sigh!
