When I find a small collection of related lower value items, I usually group them together and hope someone is willing to just take them all. This is stuff that most people would have thrown away long ago so I knew it had to have at least some value.
Another unusual item that I couldn't find any comps to get a price point. I just sort of guessed it would be worth about $40 and I did an auction just in case and got two bids.
I love selling random vintage decorations - I'm sure whoever bought these was reclaiming a memory.
This was really unique - Briard made like kitchen items, glassware and other things in the 1960s but a coin bank was outside the norm and the style was killer
Made in China is not such a bad thing if you go back far enough.
People collect the silliest things. I love finding stuff in the closet that was never opened from like 30 years ago or more.
There is a really small market for old science and atomic age materials and ephemera. This was actually purchased by some kind of government archival library.
I find these all the time but since most people kept them in the bathroom by the shower, they are usually rusty and not worth selling. This one was pretty clean.
There is nothing new under the sun but sometimes I just can't find a comp sale history on a given item and I just have to guess what someone might be willing to pay. Halloween plus popular author plus adorable equals $40
This was pretty old and unusual. Obscure metal figures can do really well. Pieces like this were sometimes made to sell with a clock or a lamp.
I can tell you that making a $20 sale on eBay is almost not worth the effort but this was a cool figure and it would have had no value anyplace but.
Pop culture figures and trinkets can sometimes be a surprise.
This was a good little old piece and had the potential to sell for more but it found a good home for fifty and that's just nifty
I honestly get a set like this almost every month and they usually take a LONG time to sell but this one had been refinished and sold in under a month which was a blessing.
I love selling vintage toys but even those prices seem to be down these days....
I found this aftermarket seat cover in someones garage where it was still new in the box from like 1982. I thought it was cool enough to post for sale but I was shocked that someone bought it almost instantly.
Stuff like this is not really in much demand but still seems to do okay
Vintage Barbie stuff usually sells well. This piece was neat as it was made for Barbie by a company other than Mattel - Licensed third party stuff can be rare.
I love selling old lamps
People just seem to love weird strange dumb stuff.... which is fine with me as I find a lot of it...
These were pretty killer and I do like to sell bookends and have luck with them for some reason or another...
These were really strong old quality pieces and I had hoped for a bit more
Not a big sale but I never have a problem selling silly animal related figurines
I like selling lamps.... this was a good old piece
Times are tough and I have been selling lower value items online if I think they will move quickly. Anything pertaining to Halloween is always a good bet.
