I found this lot of clip on earrings, and I knew that the Japanese cluster beads were desirable - although more research has shown that they are not all that valuable. I picked up a couple more pairs that I thought were in the vintage fashion that is popular among some folks. I paid $4 for the lot of five pairs of earrings. I was hoping to make $20 or so, I may be lucky to break even.
I have a flat rate shipping of $2.99 to the USA on this. I know from past experience that this package is not going to weigh more than 5 or 6 ounces, and after using a free small box out of the Petsmart dumpster (Barnes & Noble also has great boxes in their dumpster) I will probably pocket a dollar from the shipping as well. This is win / win, as you see a lot of overpriced shipping for the small stuff on ebay that really does not cost a lot to ship if done correctly.

Update: Unsold. Another loss to throw into the goodwill pile.
