Yup, there are collectors for just about everything
Some items like this have no sale history and we have to guess the value by instinct. What shocked me is that someone found and bought it on eBay like an hour after I posted it which made me think I could have charged a few more dollars from that 'sucker' haha
This was a small sale but probably big memories for someone
Historical and political items are usually good sellers, especially when it's something that was produced in very limited quantities
This thing was sitting on my shelf for almost a year before someone finally bought it. Stuff like this just isn't in demand anymore
Times are tough so I'm trying to sell just about anything and everything that has a chance of finding a new home
Just about anything marked 'Denmark' will sell quickly and for a decent price
This period art hanging was still shrink wrapped from like 50 years ago. We love vintage true vintage decor in great condition.
Another cool old stock lamp from our retired electrician pick.
Always a market for Native American pottery....
Neat old pieces for sure - praise the Lord for a nice sale!
These were larger than most of the ones I see and were worth a little more than others - still a pretty small sale
Just goes to show you there is a buyer for almost everything.... and I can sell just about anything if I put 'mid century' in the title.
You know I love old lamps
I'll be honest in saying that we don't get many premium items that sell in the thousands. This was a very unassuming piece but when I saw what it was and did some research I knew that it was something that very few collectors would have and deserved to sell for a high price. Again, instead of letting people bid on such an obscure item, I started the bid at the minimum price I thought would be fair.
At first I didn't think much of this but once I saw that it was a music box that made the head turn side to side and played a whistling sound I knew it was a killer piece.
Most Goebel / Hummel pieces have gone way down in value but some true vintage limited edition pieces like this have held their value
I learned my lesson from the last group of scout patches I had and did a little more research this time. Instead of letting people bid them up, I started the eBay auction and the minimum price I wanted and I got that one bidder to agree with me.
It doesn't look like much but I knew it was strong when I saw it and sure enough it sold pretty quick and for a nice price.
I had this posted on eBay forever and someone actually bought it in our store months ago but I neglected to pull the ad down so I said a big !@#$% when it sold online and I remembered.
Someone thought these were worth thousands. Sometimes people see or hear something and they get it stuck in their head what could or should be but just isn't realistic.
Love my vintage lighting. Yet another nice sale from a retired electrical shop pick.
I continue to have limited success with old books.
Love old military stuff
Some higher end perfumes and keepsake items can make a sweet smell
