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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
