You know I like vintage decorations but if you happen to see modern catalogs you may have noticed peacock themed items are popular again and sure enough, someone bought this from me off eBay in a matter of hours after I listed it.
Common items from long ago can sometimes be worth good money and this book in particular was sold to a prop company and may even be in a movie soon!
You know I like to sell vintage toys and we're starting to see things from the 90's and early 2000's become more valuable as of late.
More old lamps that we sold
Disney stuff is always in demand to collectors and things that are unopened from many years ago defiantly have extra value. I was trying for a better price for this with no luck so this is the best I could get
I always seem to have luck selling bookends
I almost don't know why I posted this for sale as it didn't look particularly old or special. Like I was saying, this year has been a challenge so I'm trying to sell things that I wouldn't normally so in this case I did okay.
I love selling vintage lamps and lighting but they are never easy to pack and ship and getting it to the buyer undamaged is the most important part
I like to sell random decorations from the 1950's and 60's as I think they are cool and they always seem to sell for a nice price.
Books have a very long shelf life (pun) as no one likes to throw them away and there are plenty of them out there so only great titles in good condition have any value at all.
Old furniture just isn't as popular as it used to be. This piece was in amazing condition but it took a really long time to find someone who wanted to own it.
These have become sort of iconic....
You know I like old lamps and this one was so ugly it just had to be worth a lot of money.
Retro Scandinavian style furniture is very popular right now and while not everything will be worth a fortune, this unit was really clean and sold fairly quickly.
Don't get too excited as MOST old sewing machines are worth very little but this one was WHITE and any color other than the common black is much more valuable.
An interested party was ranting about how this was a first generation sword and he had only seen a half dozen in his life.... it got my hopes up but this sale was not impressive
Sold in a day - love random 1960s stuff
Vintage Barbie usually does well.
When I'm digging around someone's house and I see an old box like this I never really expect to find the actual item still brand new inside!
Packing and shipping items like this can be daunting but that's what I need to do to make the big bucks
Love some vintage variety
Computers and technology have replaced the need for some old tools and instruments but there are some teachers who teach 'old ways' and since companies don't make certain things anymore, vintage items can be in demand.
High end optics and science items can be great sellers
Selling something on eBay for $20 is almost not worth the effort but this little guy was adorable and would have been worth nothing anywhere else.
I've been having some luck selling furniture out of the area on eBay and this was easy enough to ship in a box. Stylish ottomans can be hard to find so it actually sold in just a few days.
