Steve – Figured you were on vacation. I was as well, so I didn’t have to catch up when I got home 🙂 Sales have been slow, but I’m not sweating it. Going back a few weeks, here are my better or more interesting sales.
Several years ago, I bought an auction lot slashed to $2.50. It included four wood barrels, and I finally sold the last one for $42. I priced it a bit higher because it had print on it showing that it was originally used for wire nails made in Pittsburgh.
I went to a library book sale earlier in the year. I purchased this vintage book fully in Russian. I was concerned that eBay would pull it down as it did for some empty Russian vodka bottles, but I had no problems. Paid about $1, sold for $24.
Just a nice sterling pendant sold on commission for $58.
I’ve been inundated with clothing lately, both free stuff from my parents’ friends and my commission from my neighbor across the street. I’ve been lotting much of the stuff up because I really hate listing clothing. Here are a few examples. The men’s polos were free, and the women’s clothing is from my neighbor. One woman purchased three lots of size 3X tops, so that was nice.
This framed print has been in my storage for some time. My mom said that she found it with my grandfather’s stuff when she cleaned up his apartment after he passed away. For some reason, this artist is popular. Sold for $67.
This is a teapot purchased in a large online auction purchase early in the year. Bought for a few bucks, sold for $29.71.
