Old metal items are great, especially when they have their history stamped right onto them. A very unusual collectible to begin with and dog related stuff always sells. Considering this was a New Jersey club I found it strange that a lady in the UK was the one to buy this. What do I know - I aint nothing but a picking hound dog.
This could have been an extremely uncommon collectible but we weren't sure if it was a reproduction or not. It still sold for a monstrous price considering the paints inside were not correct.
Many collectors want to buy things that aren't commercially produced or want to reclaim a memory of some experience they had. While saving a concert ticket stub isn't unheard of, having one from 1974 is uncommon, hence this lot had value. Long live the King
Everyone knows I like old lighting - here is yet another neat pair that sold for a fair price.
I've explained before that most old pottery prices have dropped way down in recent years but we can still have some luck with very unusual pieces like these. Release the hounds!
Music and movie posters or other memorabilia in reasonable condition will usually have some appeal. Someone is probably re-creating their childhood bedroom with these right now and most people would have thrown them away, but not us.
Yet another great lamp we found a new home for. A pair would have sold much quicker and gone for much more
Very cool period accent piece! It took longer to sell than I thought it would. The large size made the cost of shipping high and since half the stuff we sell goes to California that probably kept this shelf from flying off my shelf.
I'm pretty sure I posted one of these before but I was so happy when this finally sold after sitting on my shelf for many months. This is the type of item that used to have good value but no so much anymore. I still have to try to fish for pieces like this but it's always a long shot.
Not a very strong piece, but dog stuff sells and I thought it was interesting
Everyone knows I like mid century Scandinavian stuff and here is another piece that brought a good price
Everyone knows I like to sell vintage lamps and here is another nice pair that brought a pretty good price
We know old toys have good value but having one in nearly mint condition in the original box usually makes for a great sale!
Celebrity autographs are always in demand, yet they have declined in value to some extent and without authentication, it's hard to get a good price for such.
Old pottery has declined in value but Native American pieces are always in demand. We almost donated this little beauty to the thrift store but a little research told us it was special
This should have sold for more and ten years ago it would have. I got tired of tripping over it in my storage area for three months so what I though should have gotten me $300 only went for $110. We meet many people who think their items are worth more than they actually are and it just goes to show you even I can't predict the market for everything. On the flip side, many people we work with are pleasantly surprised with our results for things they thought were fit for donation.
Show me old toys, and I'll show you money.
These were something I don't see everyday - photo cards indigenous to an Iowa theatre from the 1940's. They sold in a reasonable amount of time for a fair price and I didn't have to break a leg in the process.
I don't want people thinking we want old glassware because we usually don't. I wouldn't have taken this on consignment and I actually donated a huge portion of this stuff last week - at least I was able to get something from it.
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.
