Always a market for Native American pottery....
Neat old pieces for sure - praise the Lord for a nice sale!
These were larger than most of the ones I see and were worth a little more than others - still a pretty small sale
Just goes to show you there is a buyer for almost everything.... and I can sell just about anything if I put 'mid century' in the title.
You know I love old lamps
I'll be honest in saying that we don't get many premium items that sell in the thousands. This was a very unassuming piece but when I saw what it was and did some research I knew that it was something that very few collectors would have and deserved to sell for a high price. Again, instead of letting people bid on such an obscure item, I started the bid at the minimum price I thought would be fair.
At first I didn't think much of this but once I saw that it was a music box that made the head turn side to side and played a whistling sound I knew it was a killer piece.
Most Goebel / Hummel pieces have gone way down in value but some true vintage limited edition pieces like this have held their value
I learned my lesson from the last group of scout patches I had and did a little more research this time. Instead of letting people bid them up, I started the eBay auction and the minimum price I wanted and I got that one bidder to agree with me.
It doesn't look like much but I knew it was strong when I saw it and sure enough it sold pretty quick and for a nice price.
I had this posted on eBay forever and someone actually bought it in our store months ago but I neglected to pull the ad down so I said a big !@#$% when it sold online and I remembered.
Someone thought these were worth thousands. Sometimes people see or hear something and they get it stuck in their head what could or should be but just isn't realistic.
Love my vintage lighting. Yet another nice sale from a retired electrical shop pick.
I continue to have limited success with old books.
Love old military stuff
Some higher end perfumes and keepsake items can make a sweet smell
Old political items as well as transportation related things can do well and this had both going for it.
Unusual art can be hit or miss and some types of items like this can be hard to describe and categorize so buyers can find them but I've learned a few buzz words to get things sold.
I love selling vintage lighting and this little old shade sold in a day.
This was in pretty good condition for being 100 years old.
I'm pretty sure in the past 8 years I've posted these before but here is another
Old signage is in demand, even obscure or foreign pieces like this
This took awhile to sell but it did and I'm happy
I usually don't try to sell old books as they don't move very well. I've been posting more recently with the lack of inventory and extra time I've had recently and surprisingly some are doing okay.
You know I love Halloween stuff and stuff like this designer plastic tray made for a quick sale.
