Last Item Sold in 2020, First Item Sold in 2021

By: Ina Steiner

Sponsored Link

Amazon sellers have a tradition of posting the last item they sold on December 31st alongside the first item they sold in the New Year - here is a link to this year's thread.

It would be really nice if we entered 2021 covid-free and could say "last item sold of 2020: face mask," but we're not quite there yet. (Hang in there!)

The thread makes for a really interesting read - many of the items on the Amazon thread are books, though not all are - I discovered some new products I never knew existed ("Birthday Milestone Board for Dogs with Party Theme" for pet owners, for example).

Feel free to share your last item/first item sold and on which platform it sold.

You can also share the most interesting item you sold in 2020, or the most stubborn longest-listed item that just won't sell, or even the most interesting thing you bought in 2020 - have some fun or unload your troubles. And here's to a happy and healthy 2021.

Last item sold on ebay in 2020:  bird sexing crystal

First item sold in 2021:  NONE  

After over ten years on eBay and over 5000 sales, we closed our store in December (due to the usual reasons discussed here)  Taking some time off to decide our ecommerce selling future, if any.  We've tried other sites without much success and just might truly retire now.

Hope 2021 is safe, healthy, and productive for all!

Last item sold on the 31st was a sapphire and diamond snake ring. 1st purchase of 2021 was a rotating diamond and sapphire ring. The sale resulted in the purchase of the other at half the price. Like that. Both on eBay

Best purchase of the year.....well there's two.

Osetra Caviar from Costco and an awesome amount of King Crab, lobster tails and halibut from Great Alaska Seafood. Our New Years Day Delight!
