I had this necklace listed for years with no interest. It was given to me by my one consignor. I received a message from another eBayer that it was a evil eye necklace possibly made in turkey. I did a little research, and it did appear to be that type of necklace. So I delisted and relisted with the new information. Sold in a few hours for $24. *Marketing*
I bid in an online auction at the end of June. One was all the books in a bookcase. I usually look for a few vintage books and then roll the dice. I bid a dollar and won. There are some nice vintage books, but the first to sell was the last John le Carre novel from 2019. It’s signed. He passed away in 2020. Sold for $40.

Speaking of books… last Thursday I called in at a thrift warehouse, didn’t find anything but on the way out saw that their dumpsters were full of books. Offered them £5 for the books, and pulled out about a hundred, including John le Carrés. One was an 1804 memoir by the printer John Nichols; probably one of two or three extant copies as far as I can tell. I’ve also now got a library of books on how to build a house in 1960s Britain, which is, like, one step up from a cave dwelling.

Funny coincidence about that drum pedal as I sold one a while back that I also got for free; only mine was out on the curb on trash day in the neighborhood.
I just returned from a week in Texas at a small town with a monthly “market days” flea market that happened to be this past weekend. I’ve been going for years but things are getting a bit too precious to my liking. It is now mostly crafts and antique show-style booths with expensive tagged merchandise. I found a couple things worth buying in the few booths just piled with junk but nothing spectacular to report.
This consignment challenge coin is for a Canadian warship – look for the “HMCS” before the ship’s name, and of course there’s always at least one maple leaf somewhere. That being said, Canadian coins generally do not sell for much as the US and Asian collectors are usually not interested and the challenge coin craze has not caught on in Canada itself, apparently. This one went for $16 plus shipping, going back to Canada.
There is interest in coins related to the US Congressional Medal of Honor. This was a coin from the CMOH Foundation gala of a recent year and would have originally come in a presentation box. A consignment, it sold on a best offer to a coin dealer for $35 plus shipping. I don’t think it was bought for resale, but if it was, that’s fine with me.
Flea market dealers are mostly wise to the value in old brass belt buckles but I was able to get this reproduction 1936 Mercedes Benz buckle among a handful of smalls I picked out from a dealer’s table for which I paid about $1.75 for each item. It sold for $34.34 with free first class package shipping that cost me $3.57.
I found this cheeseboard with knife at a Goodwill for $6.50. It appeared well-made and I’ve done well with cutting boards before but I was pleased to discover that there’s a particular following for boards with carved mice, as there was apparently a well-known craftsman in the UK who popularized the style. It sold for $70 plus shipping but stayed in the US.

That was Robert “Mouseman” Thompson; he died 66 years ago, but there’s a Robert Thompson firm still trading. All their stuff is in oak. The mouse is trademarked; an ex-employee got caught last year selling fakes on eBay.
Ms Airton told York magistrates that by the time the company spotted what Cooke was doing he had sold 90 wooden products including furniture via eBay and made a profit of £16,490 between March 2017 and September 2019.
There are also other Yorkshire woodworkers, Gnomeman, Lizardman, Beaverman, Squirrelman, Foxman, Eagleman, and Deathwatchbeetleman, who just bores holes in his furniture.
