One of my own staff members, an experienced eBay seller herself, asked me to represent this piece from her private collection. There were no comprehensive values to be found and she knew that I had a better chance of getting a good price for it. When it comes to premium items, we definitely earn our commission. Give us great items and we'll get you great results!

During the great American depression, money was tight and many women may have only owned one or two pairs of shoes! In order to dress up those shoes for church or date night, fashion accessories like these clip inserts could be attached to add a little 'bling'. Can you imagine only owning one pair of shoes?!

NEW old stock Timex Skiathlom 6500 ski watch

Sale Price

When I did some research, I was excited to see that one of these same watches (also in new condition and being 30 years old) had recently sold for $300! I had a whole case of them and I was thinking I'd finally be able to replace one of our iMac computers with all the money I'd make! I had new batteries put in and listed one but then, a stream of collectors told me how ridiculous my price was. While someone, somewhere, at sometime may have paid that much for one, much to my chagrin it seemed I would not be getting the same price for mine.

Antique French Daum Nancy Cameo Lilly Art Glass Bowl

Sale Price

We've learned that MOST makes of art glass have gone way down in value over recent years. Occasionally we still find a gem but condition is everything. This piece had a small chip which in unacceptable for a serious collector. Considering the damage, we still got a fair price for it but as a professional seller, handling items with condition issues usually isn't very rewarding.
