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!

Disney Hat (1) Disney Hat (2)

Items from Walt Disney World are highly collectible. I found this hat at a yard sale and it still had the tags!  It’s a Graphic Edge Hat that was made for Walt Disney World’s 40th Anniversary. It was in brand new condition and even had the protector still on the inside.

When I bought this, I mainly did so because the person only wanted $1 and it was brand new. I had no idea how much value this hat would have. Some have sold on eBay for upwards of $40, but the average price of these is between $20 and $25 (all price estimates include shipping.) I had this up for a couple of months before it sold. I had it listed for $24.99 with best offer. I received an initial offer for $17 and after a few back and forths, we settled upon $20.49. It only cost a couple of dollars to ship, since it was light enough to go first class. I place all items like this in boxes, because people are expecting to get a product in good condition, and this is the type of object that can get damaged if you put it in an envelope. After the cost of the item, shipping, and eBay and PayPal fees, my profit on this item was $13.48.
