Unusual items like this can sometimes be challenging to sell as we need to find the right buyer. The nice lady who bought this had been looking for a gift for her grandfather who just retired as a postal worker. Hopefully this will bring him fond memories of his career!
Merry Christmas! We sold a bunch of small items this month on eBay - partly because I was selling items cheaper due to the fact that we were about to move the store. We hope to see everyone at the new shop soon!
I love funky lighting and random old drug-store type items are fun as well. Someone said they had been looking for these for years but they wanted a better price and I was like 'the price is already fair if you've been looking for years' lol. Everyone wants a good deal but we try to hold out for a good price on unusual items.
We had several nice old nativity sets floating around the store but we had to wait till the season was right.
Vintage toys are one of my favorite things to sell. While most toys can still be easily found, finding an original BOX for a given toy is much harder. This box was really clean for being circa 1959 and collectors are always looking for stuff like this. FYI boy toys are generally worth more than girl toys as girls are more inclined to take good care of their things and save boxes.
Vintage Holiday items are great if you sell them at the right time of year. Not a big sale but still a great item.
Very unassuming item but 'figural' pieces and any cat related items usually seem to be collectible.
Our last house clean-out job of the year had over twenty large tubs of Christmas decorations. We went through all of them and out of a mountain of stuff, this was the most valuable item. Not a huge sale but definitely fun for the Holidays.
Common vintage but stylized items like this can always be fun and are sometimes worth a lot. The buyer was in the UK and told me she had been looking for one for three years!!
I wouldn't call this iconic, but it's cool and I got it sold pretty quick
