Those are some amazing vintage electronics – what a great niche! Do you enjoy the repair part of it?
I tried my hand this week at making some What Sold videos – I’ve never done it before but thought it might be fun. I have learned a lot from the generosity of many other people who share what has sold for them online – I’m glad to try and give back a little or pay it forward.3+

Forgot to post last week my What Solds, so these are two weeks worth of things. Lots of low dollar items these past few weeks. But I feel things are picking up slowly.
This lot of older electric lamp parts were what was left from a box lot after I pulled out all the good stuff. Individually, nothing here was worth my time to sell so I thought to lot it all together. It didn’t take more than a few weeks to sell for full price of $25. Not bad for junk that I nearly threw away.
I’ve been learning a lot about machinist tools since I began selling on eBay. They can be hit or miss, but I always have good luck with anything Starrett brand. This protractor head and rule was a bit rusty but worked just fine. Didn’t take long for it to sell for full price of $60.
Last year I scored a huge 35mm slide collection for around $100. I’ve been slowly going through and picking out any notable ones that I think would have some interest to anybody. These pair were an easy sell due to the content matter… exotic dancers! Well, the outside view of the famous Condor Club and Off Broadway Club in San Francisco anyways. It took about a month to sell but I got full asking price of $30 for them.
I was surprised to have gotten the full asking price of $60 for this Bulova tube radio since it had some damage. But it worked fine and kept time. I paid $4 for it at an auction.
This sale was my favorite for the week. It’s an old Chevrolet keychain that came out of a bag of miscellaneous trinkets that I risked $2 for (each sellable item only came to .33 cents). It seemed special to me somehow. I was able to find the brand easy enough. Definitely vintage. I priced it high at $40 and it sold after about a month.

Steve – You’re so famous! I bet Jay and Ryanne get that every once in a while as well.
Well, this first sale would have been great, but I didn’t notice some damage. This seems to be a theme with me lately as another person is returning a sculpture where I didn’t notice a repair. Anyway, I only paid about a dollar or two for this enamel on brass plate, which I sold for $42.50. I refunded $12.50 when the buyer sent photos the damage. I think I didn’t notice because the crazy colors kind of hid it. If you zoom in on the first photo, it’s near the top of the plate, a bit to the left.
I bought these framed prints at a synagogue rummage sale for about $2. I believe that they are pages from a prayer book. I delayed listing them because I saw that one print had a bunch of dead men hanging from a tree. I’m not sure why I didn’t figure it out right away, but it’s the story of Purim. The story goes that Haman had convinced the king to kill all the Jews by hanging. When Queen Ester came to the king and said that she was Jewish and all her people would die, Haman and his men were hung instead. Anyway, I mentioned in the listing that the one drawing was a bit morbid, and the set of three sold for $39.
It’s been about two years since I bought a closet full of linens for $1. From everything that I bought in that online auction, I’m pretty sure that the family immigrated from Russia in the ’79/’80 timeframe when many were allowed to leave. This Russian made tablecloth was unused and still had a paper tag inside. Sold for $33. I don’t even count the cost of it because how many times can you divide up a $1 purchase?
I was in my basement looking for items to photograph when I decided that I really wasn’t using this child sized mannequin anymore. I bought it before I started photographing clothes on the floor. I did pay around $20 for it, so the $47 doesn’t seem like such a big sale. But, hey, I did get a year or two of use from it!

Sharyn, that is a gorgeous tablecloth! Made of linen from the Order of Lenin Linen Factory in Orshan (or Orshansk). Hey – it’s Lenin linen! lol1+
