Bargain Bandit Tuesday 12/11/12!

Today is Tuesday and that means it’s time for my Bargain Bandit episode. Every week, I share information about some of my recent sales, show off some favorite picks, and shout out to fellow you-tubers I enjoy watching. I really enjoying doing these shows and would love to hear what other people think.

As promised in the episode, here’s a bonus item that I recently sold!


Betty Crocker Cookbooks are easy money! You should always be picking up anything that says Betty Crocker on it, if it has any age to it. This one was from 1976 and was a 5-ring binder. It was complete, although a few of the pages had condition issues. It was written on with magic marker and had some other damage to the covers. However, this version of the cookbook, being in the binder, complete, with the pie cover, is a much-sought after version of this book. The hardcovers go for even more!

I purchased this from a big sale that covered the woman’s house, but it wasn’t an estate sale. I didn’t know when I first started looking around in there that she was motivated to sell, or I might have picked up other things she had priced too high. However, she had $1 on this (and I picked up a Starbucks Mug from her too!) so I nabbed this up the minute I saw it. It sold for $19.99 plus shipping. After fees and the cost of the item are removed, I made $15.04. I originally listed it as an auction for $19.99 and it didn’t sell, so I relisted it at fixed price for $19.99 and it sold within one day.

Many of you may already know me from my YouTube channel, and if you don’t, click here to be whisked away to a magical place where … ok it’s probably not that great, but click anyway.

If you don’t know me, I’m Staci and I go to yard sales, estate sales, and thrift stores and buy things that I can resell on eBay. I primarily specialize in board games, which are a great passion of mine. I do a YouTube show about my finds and how I’m making money. I have a Facebook page (clickie!) as well.

On YouTube, I have a few different shows that I do. First, every Tuesday, I publish a show called The Bargain Bandit. In this show, I have a few different segments. The first shows off recent sales and what kind of profit I’m making off items after all the fees and other costs are deducted. I then show off three things I recently picked up in my Top 3 favorite finds. I close it off with a Shout Out to a fellow you-tuber I learn things from.

I’ve just started a new show called On the Road with Staci. In this, I take the camera with me and video tape whatever I can while I’m out.

I also do a daily show with The Highland Picker called The Gal Picker Show, For Sale with Tracey and Staci. In this show, Tracey and I go over items we are putting up for sale on eBay. We also read comments and answer questions from our watches. This is a live show that airs at 11 AM Pacific/2 PM Eastern. Try to catch it if you can!

As to what this page is going to be, that’s still in the works. I’m going to try to blog along with my YouTube videos. If there is any questions or anything you would like me to do here, please let me know! This page also has some items for sale, but it’s not stuff I’m selling on eBay, so check it out if you want.
