I really do love the pets at the end of the video, they always improve my day. Your Collie is beautiful and majestic standing on the picnic table.

I remember hearing that the Crabtree & Evelyn Sandalwood (or something like that) fragrance went for really high prices. I didn’t know that other products of theirs also do well. I don’t run into their products much, but I’ll have to keep my eyes open!

Not a big week for sales, but I’ll pick out a few:
I purchased this vintage lamp with a ship lantern nightlight at a church rummage sale. Towards the end of the sale, you can buy a box of stuff for $5, so the lamp cost less than $1. The buyer offered $50 without the shade, so I accepted the offer and then immediately sent an invoice with the reduced shipping. Worked out well.
Every year, my son needs a new suit, and I sell his lightly used one to help offset the cost. Boys suits and jackets sell well in general. I got $26 for the pants, jacket, and shirt.
This copper pan with lid was from an auction lot of older pots & pans. I’m assuming that the buyer will use it for decor, not actual use. I paid about $2, and it sold for $21.

Steve, thanks for sharing your experience on eBay. Sorry you were banned for the batteries. (It sounds like you were banned because the listing included “Orthofix”, is that right?).
Congrats also on selling the camping book. I love books and finding one that sells for more than pennies over shipping is a victory. My strategy is to look for items that have local appeal or were made in limited circulations.
Sales last week were steady, but nothing earth shattering. I split up the parts of an old board game called “Feudal” – a bookcase game from the 1970s. Someone made two purchases and bought five sets of armies for $37.50 https://www.ebay.com/itm/193059791841
I almost never look in the glass case of my local thrift store because there is usually no one about with a key and it is often overpriced. Last week, I came up while the case was already opened for someone else and I ended up buying several new in the box games including this pack of divinitation cards. https://www.ebay.com/itm/193291884293 These weren’t new, but they paid for themselves and for the three other items I bought with them.
Three sets of bakelite dice were free in a box of other stuff I purchased. I listed them for $14.50 per pair and forgot about them, Last week I had the happy experience of selling a pair. https://www.ebay.com/itm/193049156055
I bought fifty dexterity puzzles at a garage sale for $30 last year. I priced them high (most seem to sell at around $20) and put make offer on them. That strategy has worked pretty well in that I have sold nearly half of them for full price or best offer. This one sold for best offer of $30 https://www.ebay.com/itm/193074996157
