Steve – Seems like you are selling more and more using Facebook Marketplace.
I rarely see those pole lamps in my area. I wonder if that was something more regional or if I just haven’t been in the right place.
I bought this doll in an auction lot for about $1. It sold in a few hours for $33. I don’t know anything about the company, but, apparently, the Cuddly Sisters brand is very collectable.
This steamer pot also sold within a few days of posting. The postage was twice the cost of the item itself. I’m not sure what makes it so special. Paid about $3, sold for $22. Maybe I underpriced this one?
Bennington Potters is a small company in Vermont. I noticed that a number of them had irregularities. People who own them must be OK with that because of the handmade quality. I grouped the mugs into one listing with irregularities and one in better condition. One person bought both listings for $54 total. I paid about $3 total.
I thought that this large, hand-thrown vase was going to be a long tail item, but it sold in just a few days. I paid about $3, and it sold for best offer of $60.
Arcoroc is a French glass company that has sold much better for me than other glass. This set was never used, but was stored in a very dusty area. I don’t care to list something like this as new, but I didn’t want to wash them because the stickers and packaging show that they’ve never been used. You can’t use “new” or “like-new” when you list something as used, so I stated that they were dirty but “unused” in the condition statement. They sold for a little less than brand new at $37. I paid pennies.
Another technical book sold that was given to me by a friend I used to work with. Paid nothing, sold for $34.

Nice tension pole lamp sale, Steven! I picked a gorgeous spaghetti lamp tension pole from an estate sale for $20 and I just got it fixed up a few days ago. I kinda want to hold on to it for a little while but I know it’ll sell for some big money. Also, that’s a great price for the Jarts. I’ve collected about seven sets so far and I’m glad to know that I can get at least $140 for each. Here are some of my interesting sales from last week…
This little Texaco oil can was found on a shelf at a church estate sale earlier last winter. I knew oil cans are highly collectable in some circumstances. I picked it up for a couple bucks. Unfortunately, it wasn’t one of those that could sell for several hundred dollars. But I still got $20 for it.
Hearing aids are a thing that I’ve learned to buy whenever I find them if they’re cheap enough. They can sell for upwards of a hundred dollars used…if they work properly. I grabbed several pairs at an estate sale for really cheap, but none of them worked. But being resourceful, I listed the carrying cases for sale and this one sold for $25.
I came across this little soft cooler at a yard sale for a couple bucks. I recognized the corporate branding Dinner Bell from years ago, and the cooler was in very good condition. It only took a couple months but it sold for full price of $40.
Here’s my big sale of the week. As I mentioned earlier this week, I rescued a pile of NASA ephemera from the dumpster not long before I quit my job. Included in that pile were a series of Apollo research photographs. I thought they were special, so I listed them by astronaut name as auctions just to see where they went in prices. I was shocked at the bidding wars. This one of Buzz Aldrin sold for $305.
