Another vintage lamp - one of my favorite things to sell. This was another piece from a closed electric shop we picked
You know I almost never fool with clothing but these shirts were about 50 years old with a retro patten and had never been taken out of the bags!
Civil war era items are still in demand. This piece was extra special and sold for a great price as it had a period stitched felt cover which was in great condition - the cover was to keep the aluminum from making noise and reflecting light
Mid century money. I can sell just about anything from the 60's.
Books are so hard to sell as no one reads anymore. People just expect to watch Youtube to see how something is done. These books were highly specialized and I bet they have secrets you won't find on the web. Still, they took forever to sell.
I DON'T take china on consignment and I really don't even offer to buy it. Someone brought this in a traded me for something in my store so I put it up on eBay and it eventually sold. It was definitely a chore to pack.
Old military related items are fairly collectible and we can usually get a fair price for stuff like this. I like to sell 'group lots' as it casts a wider net even if the price per item is less.
Vintage knives or even kitchen tools can be collectible. I didn't think much of it but G posted it and a collector in China of all places bought it a couple weeks later.
As I was saying, the winter months are slow and we normally can't afford to post $20 items on eBay but it was so darn cute I did it anyway and it actually sold in a day or two.
You know I like lighting and this was another vintage piece that had never been used from a retired electrical company we picked. I thought it was awful and it was big to ship but it actually sold in a day or two.
