These have become sort of iconic....
You know I like old lamps and this one was so ugly it just had to be worth a lot of money.
Retro Scandinavian style furniture is very popular right now and while not everything will be worth a fortune, this unit was really clean and sold fairly quickly.
Don't get too excited as MOST old sewing machines are worth very little but this one was WHITE and any color other than the common black is much more valuable.
An interested party was ranting about how this was a first generation sword and he had only seen a half dozen in his life.... it got my hopes up but this sale was not impressive
Sold in a day - love random 1960s stuff
Vintage Barbie usually does well.
When I'm digging around someone's house and I see an old box like this I never really expect to find the actual item still brand new inside!
Packing and shipping items like this can be daunting but that's what I need to do to make the big bucks
Love some vintage variety
Computers and technology have replaced the need for some old tools and instruments but there are some teachers who teach 'old ways' and since companies don't make certain things anymore, vintage items can be in demand.
High end optics and science items can be great sellers
Selling something on eBay for $20 is almost not worth the effort but this little guy was adorable and would have been worth nothing anywhere else.
I've been having some luck selling furniture out of the area on eBay and this was easy enough to ship in a box. Stylish ottomans can be hard to find so it actually sold in just a few days.
Love my vintage lamps!
This may look pretty cheesy to most people but soda and beer advertising pieces can go for big money. Even I didn't think much of this at first but it pays to do some research on everything.
Certain brands or artists have a great following and it's important to check even little figurines like this to find some kind of name or marking.
I've been selling lower value items this year but only things that I know will sell in a timely manner. I love random stuff from the 1960's
Again I usually don't bother trying to sell clothing but this jacket was like 50 years old and was super clean so I had to try to get something for it.
I always seem to do well with old bookends
I'm glad when stuff like this sells for big money but I just don't get it sometimes
I was fairly shocked that these sold within minutes of being posted on eBay. That means someone had previously asked eBay to notify them when certain key words were listed. I suppose I might have gotten even more for them but they had like crusty old boogers and stains and I almost didn't even want to list them but the vintage age and the name got them sold.
This old toy had been repainted but identical ones in more original condition have sold for over $1,000. I had hoped for more for mine but that just the way things go sometimes.
I almost can't believe I was brave enough to offer to pack and ship this but I did and it got all the way to CA without damage. It was a nice piece and I doubt anyone in the store would have paid $100 for it so sometimes I have to do the work if I want the sale.
Another collection of low value items that was impressive enough to have big value as a lot. Can you believe someone in Russia bought these and paid another $70 to have them shipped !?
