Old ethnic carvings and tools can be hit or miss but the more 'tribal' they are in appearance the better chance they have of selling.
Some unusual ceramic pieces sell but usually not for much money. The buyer of this piece was in the UK and paid more for shipping than the actual item
Yet another vintage toy that sold for a great price
In some cases it might make sense to sell an old picture and an old frame seperate but in this case I just threw it out there as it was.
Some special interest books can be in demand and these sold in a few hours. I probably could have priced them a little higher but a quick sale and one less item on my shelf is always a good thing
This big boy sat on my shelf for like a year before I decided to list it on eBay as I didn't think it was worth much. It was actually pretty clean and sold for a good price so I'm glad I took the time
I don't have much luck with African art but I know some items can have good value
This little hoot sold in less than a day - not a big sale but getting things out the door quick is important
Often we use the internet to find a home for large furniture and buyers from across the country work with us to arrange transport though private freight carriers but we usually have to wait weeks to get it picked up
This was kinda cool but the cost to ship a chunk of wood cuts in to what someone is willing to pay
This took forever to sell and was a chore to pack and ship but I'm glad it found a home
Newer collectibles usually have a following and some limited edition items can be high value
I seem to have some luck with old bookends
While real silver has value, I almost never try to sell plated items like this but this set had a nice look and was pretty clean and times are tough.
Some old French porcelain is still in demand
Some very small furniture pieces like this can be shipped
Old quilts usually aren't worth much but if they are clean I can sell them
This sale surprised me a little but leopard fur items are fairly uncommon
Almost vintage toy set that was still unused in original box!
Another vintage but never used light fixture
Some sports and pop culture decorations can be good sellers. Pieces like this were usually made into clocks but this one was not. With the anticipated team name change, original logo items like this may go up in value.
I've been having good luck with true vintage quality decorations lately. These were made in Italy in the 1950's and many designers are bringing pieces like this back into style.
Unusual old toys and games are always quick to sell!
You'll notice the zero dollar sale price and I'm sharing this to tell you that I posted this bowl for sale in March of 2019 and it finally sold for $40 in July of 2020. But I couldn't find it! We've purged the inventory room since then and it's so crowded back there that either way, I could not honor this sale so I had to refund the buyer. The truth is, if it takes over a year to sell a $40 item, it really should have just been donated in the first place.
We're seeing some not-quite vintage toys and games are in demand these days as people who were teenagers ten or fifteen years ago are now wage earning adults who want to buy back memories!
