My consignor thought this was very special and I honestly didn't believe them about it as we rarely see a piece like this go for much but I took it on consignment and sure enough, it did really well. Consignment is a good choice for higher value items with a wide range in prices but the past year or so I've mainly been offering to purchase things up front to save the paperwork.

My price on this was pretty high considering the condition but sometimes I fish for things that have a good following of collectors and in this instance I got a pleasant surprise. Most of the time I just sit on things for a month only to sell something for much less at a later date. If you sell me something and then see me asking a fortune for it, don't be offended as I rarely get my asking price.

Some old brand names have an exceptional following of collectors. I was fishing for a high price on this but no one made any offers. I let it auction on eBay and it sold for about $300 but the winner never paid so I re-listed it and the second time it sold for 600 which was actually a decent price. My thanks to the non-paying bidder!

When it comes to selling a wide variety of things on eBay, we are expected to know a little about every single thing we list. I took an offer of $200 on this clock but because I mistakenly stated it was '8 day movement' when in reality it was only '30 hour' the buyer called me out and forced me to give back $40 from the sale as compensation. Customers hold us accountable and mistakes usually cost us money.
