We sold a lot of low value stuff this month and here is another item I almost threw in the donate pile but I put it on eBay and it sold pretty quick. It was really old and easy to ship so even though it wasn't worth much I made the effort.
Always a market for pretty stuff.... and even taxidermy
My research showed that the price range sale history of this thing was anywhere from $50 to $500. Naturally, I would have loved to have gotten top dollar and I passed up an offer on the lower end... and finally got what I thought was a decent amount.
I picked this one figure from a shelf of dozens as it was the only one I thought even had a chance of selling.
Of course I love vintage lamps but this style is pretty hard to sell and it took me several months to find a buyer who was in Greece of all places. The cost of shipping was more than the item but I did a bomb-proof packing job to get it there safe.
I'm really glad this sold for a decent price in a short amount of time as these are generally pretty hard to sell.
Personal ephemera like this can be hit or miss but I put it out there and got a decent offer
Such a small sale but the buyer said what a big smile it gave her so it was worth the effort for sure.
Well, I like old lamps ... and old phones... so this had both going for it.
Not a big sale but this plush was super clean from 1975 and promo stuff usually sells pretty quick.
For the record, we don't make any money selling an item for twenty bucks minus eBay fees but I like to mix up my offerings.
There is no shortage of cheap toys made in China and most have little re-sale value but when you find one from fifty years ago you've got something special.
I love selling anything vintage, especially things that have never been used, even something as mundane as tea towels.
Vintage toys are one of my best sellers but I was surprised when one of our associates told me I could sell this for $50. I even had someone message me on eBay asking me if I was joking but a few days later someone actually felt my price was fair and bought it.
I love old lamps and was asking a lot more for this one but after several months I took my best and only offer just to get it out the door.
For me 2003 doesn't seem all that long ago but for a younger person who grew up with Sponge Bob it probably brought back a memory and was worth $60 to them....
I'm not crazy about packing and shipping large glass balls but for $100 I make the effort.
Most items on this blog were sold via eBay and the work to sell lower value things like this is hardly worth it but in some cases if something seems cool I just do it as everything I sell can't be big money.
Silver plated items like this usually don't have any value but this had an interesting design so it was worth the time to post for sale.
I actually could have sold this for double what I got for it but I failed to do any research and just posted it for what I thought it was worth. Oh well, at least it sold fast.
Not a big sale but still kinda cool
Old bookends always seem to sell fairly well for me
Model trains are not as collectible as they used to be but fine brass models like this one sell great as if they were made of gold.
Quality knives are fairly collectible as are military items in general.
We love buying and selling vintage toys and games!
