This took a really long time to sell but I knew it would eventually so I didn't give up on it. Had this been on consignment, I would have given it back to the owner after a month or two.
Yet another lamp.... this one took way too long to sell considering how cool I thought it was.... I guess what I think isn't always the norm... go figure
You know I like vintage lighting but here is me taking it a step further. These sold in less than 48 hours. Mid Century Money!
One of my associates asked if these could go in the donation box. Would you give away $284?! Obscure folk art - especially tribal looking stuff can do really well but knowing the origin is a must - thankfully these had a pencil mark so it was easy to place them.
You can't go wrong with Jesus! Can I get an Amen? I can pretty much get $100 for any mid century decoration.
Contemporary art can be hit or miss - sometimes it can be hard to figure out who the artist was and the name usually makes the difference in value.
There are always buyers for old military related items...
After sitting on my shelf for six months, I accepted a low-ball offer on these killer lamps. I was hoping for more but they took up a lot of room and I was tired of looking at them...
Let me just say that while some people say that vintage clothing is all the rage and sells for big money, I say that it usually does not. In this case, these sold for a pretty good price and I was please to see the effort was worthwhile.
I had to take these apart to ship them and let me say that that was no small task. They arrived safely of course because I am legendary at packing.....
There was no radio in this cabinet, but the condition was so nice we knew we had to try to find it a home and it sold pretty quick.
Another cool lamp we sold
Certain retro furniture styles can do very well. I had to sit on this for a few months but I eventually got my price. It was super clean and sometimes we just have to be prepared to wait to get that 'top dollar' sale. If you want to sell something right now, obviously the price will only be whatever someone is willing to offer.
Non-sports trading cards are pretty collectible. These were mostly in great condition and anything Disney or pop-culture related always does well.
Another example of old Chinese stuff selling for more than it would have years ago.
If you call me and ask if I want one of these, I will probably say 'HECK NO'. Old pieces like this are a long-shot and I was fully expecting to sit on this one for months or donate it. But with the power of the internet we found someone one state away that was actually looking for it!
There are so many 'souvenir' pieces like these floating around that I didn't have high hopes but they looked 'tribal' and authentic enough to try and sure enough, they did okay.
You know I like old lighting. These seemed like a hard sell but they actually sold in a reasonable time.
This might seem like a hard item to sell but I had a good feeling about it and found a sale comp or two that told me I was right.
Vintage toys always make for fast sales and good prices
Halloween stuff and pop culture make for a fast sale!
I almost never try to sell clothing - even the best vintage name brands sell for hardly anything and the chances an item will be returned or condition will be disputed by the buyer are high.
I can sell almost anything 'mid century'
We love love love vintage toys and games - especially stuff that wasn't meant to last.
No one seems to want things like this anymore. This one was so nice and clean I had to try but it took months to sell and $25 almost wasn't worth the wait but I'm glad it found a good home.
