Just so you know, not all my great ideas pan out. I bought this cool little suitcase at a sale for $1. I just loved it, and thought it would be just the kind of bohemian hip purse that college kids would carry around.
I've listed it three times and nothing. No bids. Nada.
This was basically a break even, since I only spent a dollar to purchase and about a dollar to list. Later I will even share things I have lost money on. I've got plenty of those too.
