These did not have a name brand and I don't even think they were very old but they seemed high quality and for some reason I put them up for $400 'or best offer' and someone offered me 200 in just a couple days which really surprised me. Without a name brand or something to justify the value, getting that kind of money for something like this is very unlikely.
I'm usually willing to try 'group lots' of most anything useful or collectible. I squashed the heck out of this yarn to fit in a smaller box so the shipping to the buyer wasn't too expensive as the cost of delivery can really cut into what someone is willing to pay.
This wasn't anything special but it was old and had a nice look to it and someone gave it a new home and got it off my shelf
These had been sitting on my shelf for months but when I saw they were made in Sweden and knowing how hot anything 'Mid Century' can be I put them up and they literally sold overnight. I can't imagine who was looking for something like this in the middle of the Zombie Apocalypse we're now living in.
Political stuff can do well. Prices on things like this can be all over the map. If it had been in slightly better condition I would have fished for more but some items we just auction and let the bidders determine the value
I suppose they still make stuff like this today but it looks like it took forever to make with all these little seashells and had a nice quality look to it.
Everyone knows vintage lighting is one of my favorite things to sell
I like finding unusual things and even though this wasn't a big sale and it took a long time to sell, it was still worth the effort.
Love selling vintage household items like this - condition is very important and packing and shipping fragile items can be challenging.
Only certain vintage furniture styles are in demand and as of late people are wanting original pieces from the 1950s & 60s. These chairs weren't particularly interesting but they actually sold in a timely manner which is more than I can say for all the more traditional stuff people want to get rid of
This nice vintage set was in wonderful condition but after trying to sell it for more than six months we were just going to donate it to the thrift store but someone showed a small interest and took all three pieces for $100. Younger shoppers simply don't care for traditional furniture like this and while we do our best to find things a good home, sometimes that work is all the value if not more.
Unusual items like this can sometimes be challenging to sell as we need to find the right buyer. The nice lady who bought this had been looking for a gift for her grandfather who just retired as a postal worker. Hopefully this will bring him fond memories of his career!
Merry Christmas! We sold a bunch of small items this month on eBay - partly because I was selling items cheaper due to the fact that we were about to move the store. We hope to see everyone at the new shop soon!
I love funky lighting and random old drug-store type items are fun as well. Someone said they had been looking for these for years but they wanted a better price and I was like 'the price is already fair if you've been looking for years' lol. Everyone wants a good deal but we try to hold out for a good price on unusual items.
We had several nice old nativity sets floating around the store but we had to wait till the season was right.
Vintage toys are one of my favorite things to sell. While most toys can still be easily found, finding an original BOX for a given toy is much harder. This box was really clean for being circa 1959 and collectors are always looking for stuff like this. FYI boy toys are generally worth more than girl toys as girls are more inclined to take good care of their things and save boxes.
Vintage Holiday items are great if you sell them at the right time of year. Not a big sale but still a great item.
Very unassuming item but 'figural' pieces and any cat related items usually seem to be collectible.
Our last house clean-out job of the year had over twenty large tubs of Christmas decorations. We went through all of them and out of a mountain of stuff, this was the most valuable item. Not a huge sale but definitely fun for the Holidays.
Common vintage but stylized items like this can always be fun and are sometimes worth a lot. The buyer was in the UK and told me she had been looking for one for three years!!
I wouldn't call this iconic, but it's cool and I got it sold pretty quick
Decorative porcelain items like this are easily damaged and one chip makes them worth almost nothing - even really nice one's like these don't sell for much anymore and safely shipping them to a buyer is a challenge.
Funny story, I found the tray at one house and the matching glasses at a totally different home. I love selling stuff from this time period.
I think stuff like this is pretty cool but there is not much demand for it
I remember this computer game was all the rage in 1993 as the graphics were impressive for the day but the game itself wasn't all that fun to play otherwise
