Antique Art Nouveau Cast Iron Fireplace Insert Kettle Pot Warmer Stand

Sold Price: 
$100.00

While old pieces like this still have some value, they are usually a chore to sell. While it was posted on eBay, it sat on my shelf for months waiting for a buyer and that buyer was in another country! So while it was worth $100 to me - it's not the type of thing we want to handle on consignment which is why I usually just offer to buy pieces like this for a token price.

Old Stock National Bohemian Mr Natty Boh Vintage Beer Lighted Sign Button

Sold Price: 
$2,900.00

I mentioned that last week, we went 3 hours out of our way and spent thousands of dollars in labor and cash to acquire a couple storage units that were up for grabs. It was a huge gamble but every blue moon we get lucky and all it takes are a couple surprisingly good pieces like this to make the numbers work. Collectors have real jobs and therefore don't have time to dig like we do and will pay a premium for finding things at their fingertips online.

Vintage Whiting Davis Egyptian Revival Snake Mesh Bracelet

Sold Price: 
$80.00

Older and unusual costume jewelry pieces can command good prices and are easy enough to identify and ship. Similar bracelets have previously sold for as much as $200 but sometimes this business is about taking an offer as having an item sit on a shelf doesn't pay the bills.
