Native American stuff is still in demand, older authentic pieces sell for good prices on eBay
Looks like pics of the NM desert to me.... just kidding
Old maps as well as town and city ephemera will sell but condition is important - I was happy with this sale considering it was in poor shape
There are always collectors looking for vintage toys and games, myself included! I love finding stuff from when I was a kid that's never even been used!!
I really like selling stuff from the 1950's & 60's so even though this was a tiny sale, I still put them out there for novelty and because buyers follow me for original period items like this.
This was from the 1950s and we actually find these all the time when we treasure hunt customer homes. They are not worth much but this one was super clean so I squeaked a small sale out of it....
Never in a million years would most people suspect this would sell for over $50 but we've got good eyes over here
Vintage lamps always sell but some of them I have no business packing and shipping. Unfortunately this is the one item out of hundreds I've shipped that was damaged in transit. Good thing I insured it but it's a shame it was broken
Believe it or not, the owner paid $5,500 for this! I almost couldn't believe it either and second-hand furniture usually only sells for a fraction of original retail. Even vintage and antique pieces have a ceiling as to what people will pay
I personally collect vintage toys but I'd never make any money if I kept everything I found and I'm out of display space anyway.
Let me tell you that packing and shipping an old mirror is a damage claim waiting to happen so I only do it if the price will justify the effort
I typically don't go out of my way to sell clothing but true vintage items do sell at a fair price
I love selling vintage toys, especially when they are really clean!
Not a big sale but vintage lighting is always in demand and sells quick
Some old science and medical devices or tools can do really well, especially when you go back to the turn of the century. I was a bit surprised this was worth what it sold for but that's why I know to research unusual things and have both books and internet resources to do so.
I love old lamps and lighting. Really good old stuff like this can be worth thousands in good condition. These were incomplete and had some damage but even still, they did okay.
These took a surprisingly long time to sell considering how cool they were - at least I thought so. Period textiles and decorations don't usually hold up so I can get pretty good money when I find them in nice condition.
I just love selling random vintage stuff like this - these would be worthless to anyone without taking the effort to sell them on eBay but that's what I do so I did it....
I over-paid for a bunch of premium vintage toys year before last and have been fishing to sell them for top dollar just to make my money back. This sold for a good price but it took like 16 months to get it
Another piece sorted by our senior volunteer Phoebe - nice job - we never would have gotten this price in the showroom
Before Ikea, there was Scan, and the put-together 'Danish Modern' furniture they sold was actually real wood and nice quality at that and it's in style again and can sell for stupid money.
Some vintage items are so 'who would even buy this' that I just know they will sell.
Some vintage toys can be extra special due to a certain paint color or decal set that was less common - and of course condition is everything.
I had one of these a couple years ago and made the mistake of selling it outright for $200. Knowing that some vintage advertising promo stuff can sell for big money, I should have auctioned it on eBay like I did this one.
Most vinyl records have very little value - I will only even look at Rock n Roll albums and even then, they have to be really clean. The only reason this one did so well is because it had the original DeadHead sticker and GD stuff in general usually does really well.
