Readers know I'm a bit of a toy collector. I had bought a really clean collection of SW toys and these were figures from my collection that I had replaced in favor of slightly better pieces. After months of fishing for a big price, I finally let them auction from $1. Sadly, I had turned down a better offer the week before. Oh well, I guess the Force wasn't with me on this lot.
No, no one wants your Beanie babies.....
Planes, trains, and automobiles. Love original boxes! Tyco is a really low-end brand but TV and movie themed toys seem to sell well no matter the quality.
There was some debate around our shop as to whether these were original or not but someone in Germany of all places agreed that they were legitimate and off they went
Someone had asked me what I thought this might be worth and at the time, I said about $50. There were in fact several similar pieces that had sold around that price when I did my research but then there was another that sold for $500 which made me think maybe I should fish - so I did and it paid off.
Another somewhat obscure item that sold in under a day. Vintage hobby collectors have eBay 'programmed' to notify them when certain items are listed.
These were pretty old - they were made of zinc pot metal but I'll add words like 'bronzed' to my titles to pick up extra potential views.
Young adult video gamers want back their 'vintage' games for nostalgia so prices are going up!
Some people love funky folk art. I might have fished for a higher price and waited but these days I'm just trying to turn inventory to keep the lights on.
Maybe I just like them but I seem to have good luck selling bookends
