Vintage toy soldiers have a good following. I had overpaid for a collection of old toys at the end of last year and had been fishing for high prices as I didn't want to lose money. I had gotten of bunch of low-ball offers but finally someone paid a nice price! Holding out for six months to get big money is not a good idea for someone serious about downsizing.

You guys know I hate selling clothing of any kind as the market is flooded with new and used stuff; most of the time it sells for nothing and half the time people want to return it like I'm Amazon or something. If something is a nice name brand and is truly new with tag I will sometimes try anyway. And since pajamas are the new uniform of our 2020 pandemic, they sold in just a few days.

I basically spent way too much and got too little and I haven't even broke even four months later. I'm sure I paid more for these than I sold them for :(

Like I was saying, normally I can't afford to sell something on eBay for $20 as the effort isn't worth it. With the quarantine I have relaxed my standards since I'm not getting much new inventory these days. I found this at a house we were paid to clean out. It would have been a shame to trash it as it had never been used and gas and oil related items always sell
