Yes, the iconic Sony Walkman - just like the one from Guardians of the Galaxy (the younger generation needs movies like that to realize what was hot in our day). This beauty was in great condition but it didn't actually work - however they can be repaired of course. I was asking a lot more but after fishing a few weeks I took an offer

I know, I know - we don't usually take clothing and I don't really like to sell it. We were doing a treasure hunt and this dress had literally been hanging in the closet for about 50 years with the original tag still attached, never worn. Just look at it - it's killer right?! I was asking a lot more but sometimes at the end of the day, your first offer is your best so I took it and got one more things out the door.

Sometimes I just overprice certain items because I can. I may take offers but with anything from this time period, I usually give it a few weeks and see if anyone wants to over-pay me. This same lamp had previously sold for as high as about $300 but hey, this is 2021 and I need to eat so I was glad to raise the bar.

Sometimes when I do my research, I see things that have previously sold across a broad price range. In some cases, I try to price things fairly for a quick sale but at other times I 'fish' for a high price based on condition or trends. In this case, I listed it at the top range of what I thought it would sell for but it sold almost instantly to someone who probably would have paid even more had I asked.

Viewers know I really don't sell much clothing but sometimes if something is either vintage or really nice and new I will try. This sweater was like $160 retail and was still sealed in the bag so I figured $40 would get me a quick sale. Surprisingly, a nice lady in Australia not only paid my 40 but another 35 for shipping on top of that!

I found these shading the basement case windows in a home we were treasure hunting. All they are is patterned plastic sheets with custom frames but they were true vintage dated 1968. Describing stuff like this so buyers on eBay can find them is a challenge but I was not only able to get them found but we got a pretty good price for them
