I finally have some decent sales to talk about.
I sold a vase from the one commission I have. She must have collected these because I have had maybe six or so from the same artist listed at one time or another. The artist name is Robert Eickholt. This one sold for $90.
This is a set of photography lights and umbrellas. I have a similar setup, but this one was from a neighbor moving away. It belonged to her son. Not sure, but I assume he was selling online.
This is a mid-century wood lamp shade. When I listed it, I decided I would set it up at an angle in a 20x20x20 box. However, I had just used my last one, so I tried taking a used large box and cutting it so it was more square. It came out lopped sided, and I wasn’t sure if it would make the coast to coast trip intact. I finally just went to Home Depot and purchased a 24x24x36 wardrobe box and cut it down to size. I was able to pack the shade flat. So, my $34 was reduced by $13 for the box and about $2 in extra postage. Oh well.

That bird will never know how close it came to meeting its maker.
Glad to hear your sales are better, Sharyn. Mine have been plugging along slowly despite a couple vacations and time away periods, saved by a few high dollar items. Some sales from earlier in the year:
This 1 Balboa coin from Panama featuring the infamous General Omar Torrijos has been rattling around my junk drawers since I was stationed there with the Army in the 1980s. Panama tied its currency to the US so that 1 Balboa always equals $1. But not only that, its coinage duplicated US coinage by size and weight so the coins from both countries circulated freely together in Panama. Panama did not print bills, though, so US dollars in all denominations circulated as its paper money. (You had to call them Balboas with the Panamanians, and not Dollars, unless you wanted to give offense.) When I got back to the US I was able to use up most of the Panamanian coins I had left in various US vending machines but I never ran across a machine that took $1 coins so this one stuck with me. It sold for $13 with free shipping.
Here’s another one of those ubiquitous beat up 1930’s Turkish Mauser rifle bayonets. It sold for $78 plus shipping and was a gun show find at $25.
This was an interesting book I picked up at a used book store for a couple dollars. It is a signed, self-published auto-biography of a Cambodian politician’s time as a guerilla fighter in the wars during and after the Khmer Rouge of the 1970’s – 1980’s. It sold for $18.50 plus $28 shipping to go to Australia.
It appears that China produces a range of large, unmarked glass animal figurines like this one. This example was a house-warming gift from a while back but is not exactly our style so off it went to a new owner for $39 plus shipping.
Las Vegas casino ashtrays seem to be one of those categories where sellers have very high hopes but where the majority of items actually only sell in the lower ranges. A couple dollars at the flea market, this one from the Fortune Club, a long-gone joint on the strip, sold for $50 plus shipping on a best offer after I let it sit for a couple years at $100+ with no bites.

things seemed to pickup a bit the last couple weeks. had some interesting sales. A mixture of things from my personal hobby collecting from 20yrs ago, some estate sales items and some things I bought while traveling that I thought I’d try flipping. My interests have always been comic book and toy related so while traveling for work I try to hit comic shops.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/193811328211 Danskin Delux Total Body Power Cord system. This was mixed in with a couple bins of books I bought about a year ago. I almost tossed this in the trash. Got $11.25 on a best offer.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/193863170359 Tomarts GI Joe collectibles price guide from 1993. Grabbed this at one of the better estate sales I’ve been to. All the books were at a dollar each so I grabbed every toy and collectible price guide I found. This was a big winner selling for Sixty Bucks!
https://www.ebay.com/itm/194212087670 Spiderman Lead Figurine and comic book set from the UK. This is something I picked up at a comic shop in FL and thought I’d try flipping. I got three of these for a total of Fifty dollars. Sold this one for $48. Still have the other two for sale. Should double my money after all fees, once all three sell.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/194014717955 Texas Rangers Arlington Stadium last game limited and numbered button. I was about to leave an estate sale empty handed and spotted this on a wall in the garage. Got it for one dollar and sold for $9.50
https://www.ebay.com/itm/193757671592 Missouri Jury Instructions law book. Also sold a Federal Communications law book. These are more books from my awesome online auction purchase for three dollars of two big bins of books from an estate sale. These two together went for $120.00. One day I’ll add up my total for what I’ve sold from this auction as it has to be in the mid hundreds by now.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/194195309153 Queen Mary souvenir book and Queen Mary Hotel souvenir book from the 70’s. Decided to bundle these two for a sale. Paid two dollars each, sold the pair for $24.75
Quite a few other sales for July including a couple items over a hundred dollars from my hobby collection.
