Nice pretty name brand collectibles still sell but the prices are way down.
Knives, swords, and weapons in general tend to sell well. This was an unusual piece and I was pretty happy with the sale price.
College memorabilia usually sells, the older the better.
Yep, more toys :)
Fantasy and war gaming stuff has a small following and some younger people seem to be interested as well. My new go-to number with inflation is $130 so I can clear $100 after the eBay fees ....
Vinyl records still have a small following and some younger people like them as well. The only genre that I see selling is rock and roll so anything else I don't pay much attention to.
I love vintage toys as they help bring back memories. I was only asking $25 for these so I was slightly annoyed when a lady offered me $21 as it was already a break even price with the labor to take a picture for eBay.... but at least it made someone happy.
You know I love old lighting and I didn't give up on this piece even though it took me SEVENTEEN MONTHS to find a buyer. It was a good sale but it was a total chore to pack and ship this. I will say that storing this for that long was probably not worth the money but this is my job so I do what I must.....
A few years ago I sold an amber necklace for almost $4,000 - why this one was worth only $40, I have no idea.
The market on these figurines has been very 'soft' for years meaning that not many people are buying them as former collectors are downsizing.
Let me just say that there just aren't many people shopping for something like this. When I do my in-home treasure hunts I simply try to round up enough stuff to make the trip worth while and pay the owner a fair 'bundle' price for everything knowing that some items we take may never sell.
Packing and shipping a bunch of glass bottles is not for everyone but I do it all the time and it's the only way to find things like this a good home in a timely manner.
I love vintage games of all types and unusual chess sets always do fairly well.
Vintage toys are my bread and butter and if I had constant inventory that's all I would sell
We sold a lot of low value stuff this month and here is another item I almost threw in the donate pile but I put it on eBay and it sold pretty quick. It was really old and easy to ship so even though it wasn't worth much I made the effort.
Always a market for pretty stuff.... and even taxidermy
My research showed that the price range sale history of this thing was anywhere from $50 to $500. Naturally, I would have loved to have gotten top dollar and I passed up an offer on the lower end... and finally got what I thought was a decent amount.
I picked this one figure from a shelf of dozens as it was the only one I thought even had a chance of selling.
Of course I love vintage lamps but this style is pretty hard to sell and it took me several months to find a buyer who was in Greece of all places. The cost of shipping was more than the item but I did a bomb-proof packing job to get it there safe.
I'm really glad this sold for a decent price in a short amount of time as these are generally pretty hard to sell.
Personal ephemera like this can be hit or miss but I put it out there and got a decent offer
Such a small sale but the buyer said what a big smile it gave her so it was worth the effort for sure.
Well, I like old lamps ... and old phones... so this had both going for it.
Not a big sale but this plush was super clean from 1975 and promo stuff usually sells pretty quick.
For the record, we don't make any money selling an item for twenty bucks minus eBay fees but I like to mix up my offerings.
