Sold on eBay overnight but it took the buyer like a month to drive 30 miles and get it out of my store. At least when I ship stuff it goes out my door the same day :)
Even newer toys and pop culture stuff sells well.....
Military items still do pretty well, especially going back to the Civil War - this wasn't in great condition so I was really happy with the price.
I like selling various ephemera to share the memories but most things like this just aren't worth much
Normally these big doll houses are super hard to sell but I took the time to put it on eBay and someone not too far away made an offer so I got rid of it quick. Stinks that I had to pay an eBay fee but they get stuff sold.
We brought back a bunch of stuff the other day and this was the one things I picked to wipe down and post for sale that night. It sold in like 12 hours which was unusual but even stranger someone paid another $95 to have it shipped to the UK! It's literally just a handmade item which was dated 1971 but this style simply has a huge following.
Once again, some wrestling collectibles are just stupid money and this only took a day or two to sell. Several people asked to buy it for a lower price but sometimes when we 'fish' we catch a big one with deep pockets.
I was totally shocked that a DVD video from 2004 could be worth this much but subject matter and availability can make all the difference.
I love vintage toys and original boxes usually add value. I was fishing for a higher price since I like toys so much myself but eventually I just had to be reasonable.
Most any vintage Coke memorabilia sells well - the older or less common the better
I can usually get a good price in a timely manner for this style of furniture - having a name brand goes a long way
I tried fishing for a higher price as it is somewhat rare but after a month looking at it on my floor I just wanted it gone.
I don't know if this was Blenko or not as it didn't have a marking but it was big and the color was unusual so I took a chance. Packing stuff like this is scary but it arrived in one piece cuz I am legend.
For all you thrift-store treasure hunters out there - a piece like this can be found for like $1 and while $25 is not a big sale, it's a huge return on investment and it actually sold in just a couple days so it was a quick turn
Like I was saying, I'm always happy to try any old Chinese stuff as every blue moon something can go for a crazy price
I generally like to sell random items from the 1950's and 60's as there are plenty of buyers. If you think about it, things like napkins that weren't meant to last would be in short supply to a period designer.
I always like to sell vintage lamps and even shaded but shipping something like this is a real chore.
I was pleased with this sale as most character dolls don't sell very well and honestly, not many people remember Shirley Temple anymore.
I rarely fool with clothing as it takes a long time to sell, no one wants to pay anything for it, and half the time people want to return it because it doesn't fit.
We did a treasure hunt with a couple who had already started selling a few things from their family estate. They wound up selling the chair but not this ottoman as it was in a different room so I took it. A local couple saw it on FB and came in as they had the matching chair but they only wanted to pay $50 for it ;/ I tried to tell them it's actually pretty hard to find one of these without the chair so I put it on eBay and got my price of 300 easily.
Very rarely do I attempt to sell collector plates of any kind as no one wants them anymore. During Covid quarantine, I saw that these actually might have some value and although it took many months, I finally got paid for my effort.
I did some research and found one of these identical vases had previously sold for like $600. I fished for like six months asking a high price and finally took my best offer for just $100. We learned a long time ago that what we think something is worth and what it actually is can be miles apart.
At first they looked just like any other old glassware and I didn't pay much for them. I later noticed they had never been used and were actually really cool and I got my asking price overnight.
You know I like old lighting. Obviously these look cool but they were not high-end and I'm a little surprised I got as much as I did. I was asking even more and it just goes to show if you shoot high, sometimes you get an offer that's still on the target
This is amusing as identical racks have sold for as little as $20 but I push that 'Mid Century' card whenever I can and sometimes it pays off.
