Hey what is your eBay handle. I had it saved on another name but can’t get into that name for some reason right now. I love your videos man. You buy and sell things I do. Of course I look for auctions with vintage electronics, car parts and other things too. Thanks for making your videos. It does help a lot to see what you price and sell for.

@Dirt Poor Picker – The best way to find Steve’s store is to search eBay solds on one of the items in his video.
I had some good sales last week:
This manual drill/screw driver is over 100 years old and still works. When my son was in cub scouts, one of the parents was a carpenter and had one of these that he still uses. This one was purchased in an online auction for about $2 and sold for $38.
About two years ago I bought an auction lot of kitchen stuff and green glass. I grouped up several kitchen utensils in one listing, but never had any interest on it. A few weeks ago, someone asked to buy one of the items, an ice cream scoop. I decided to sell just that one item to him, and then listed all the other things separately. I sold a chopper and a scoop one right after each other for $14 and $5 respectively. Not much money, but my point is that sometimes things just don’t sell in lots. Actually, my point is not to buy these things in the first place because nowadays I like to sell at a higher price point.
Most of my higher sales were on commission for a family friend. I take 50% of the proceeds after eBay and PayPal fees. The highest priced one was a gold ring for $250.
I did have one big sale of my own. I paid $2.30 for an older ruby color iMac in an online auction. The auction listed it as being sold “as-is”, but it actually did work to some extent. I listed the details of what I found did and did not work. The buyer, who likes to fix computers and has extra time because of COVID, purchased it at the full price of $99 and had it shipped to Texas for about $44.

Well sales have been going pretty well for me during the virus lockdown. I only wish I had more cotton fabric to sell!!
I purchased a MaxSold auction back in December that had a bunch of UVA fabric and other stuff. I like college fabric since there’s usually Mom’s and others that make things for the kids when they graduate. So that’s why I bought the lot. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I’d be selling fabric for face masks.
I had a couple of pieces of fabric for Virginia Tech as well that sold.
Others have mentioned puzzles selling and I’ve sold several as well. We like to work them at the beach so I get them, work them, take a picture and then sell them if they’re something people are looking for.
I hope the sales stay relatively high. I’m not very motivated to list but I’m trying to tell myself I’ll be ready to restock once things open back up.

Great sales, everyone! My non-essential goods continue to sell well – the collectors are still buying.
Here’s a ridiculously large Nerf blaster that’s set up like a machine gun. Sold as tested working but with damage and missing parts, it went for $30 plus shipping. It cost only $16 to go to Indiana via FedEx Ground/Home which has been the cheapest option lately for larger and heavier items by a wide margin.
My best consignment challenge coin sale of the last couple weeks was this one from US Naval Special Warfare Group 1 Training Detachment, where they train SEALS and other Navy special operators. It sold for $176 plus shipping.
This unused 2013 Starbucks travel mug came out of the family donation box, most likely received as a premium rather than purchased (I hope). It went for $28 plus shipping.
I do well with vintage aluminum selling at full asking price but this 2 cup Foley coffee percolator has been listed for a while. It sold on a best offer for $25 plus shipping. It was $2 at a flea market last summer.
These early ‘60’s vintage walkie-talkies by Ross were mine and turned up in my dad’s estate. Sold for $35 plus shipping.
This is a large mahogany plaque depicting a pre-2004 US Army combat diver qualification uniform badge. The same badge was also used by most of the other armed services at one time or another for scuba qual. I bought the plaque in the early 1980’s to go on my “I love me” wall after I went through the Army’s course in Key West.
