Steve – This must have been the week to sell traveling bars. Mine was a Trav-L Bar, but I only got $26 for it. Perhaps it was because it was missing a few things and had some wear. I paid about $4.
My biggest sale of last week was my second to last vintage Zenith Trans Oceanic radio from an auction buy back in September. This one was in decent condition and worked well. I was able to get $164 for it.
I bought this vintage milliammeter in an online auction in February for $5.75. Sold for $35. I find that vintage tools sell pretty well for me especially something in such a nice wooden case.
I was almost embarrassed when I saw that this very small print sold for $84, but that was the price from my research. This was from a known artist of miniature art. I paid about $5.
Several years ago, my husband bought his brother’s old car when he moved to Las Vegas. It had these fancy Kosei rims, but two were damaged. My husband put the original rims back on and gave me the two non-damaged rims to sell. I had included shipping in the price because I didn’t want to put both in one box, so I had allocated up to $70. The buyer is in Virginia, so both packages together cost only $34. They sold for $135, so I’m pretty happy. The buyer sells rims, so hopefully he will get much more.

Some successes and failures when “paying up” – meaning, paying more than just a few dollars for an item in the hopes of a high return.
I paid $15 each for 3 different vintage Hungarian embroidered pillow covers b/c I saw them selling for $60-70 on Etsy. That was a mistake. In the end I wasn’t willing to wait 5 years or more to maybe get that much. Took 2 years to be rid of them for $20, $50, and $30 dollars.
Paid $20 for a new Kate Spade tablecloth. I was hoping for an easy $75-100 sale. Uh, no. Took a year and a half to sell for $44.
First (and so far only) trip to the flea market. Thought this deco kettle was super cool. Paid $10. Turns out this is a pretty common item. Sold for $33.
Paid $48 for this handpainted needlepoint canvas b/c I knew these types of things can go for over $100. I didn’t know the name of the designer and asked for help with that in the listing, and eventually someone responded with the right name. A few months later, it sold for $125 – success!
Paid $30 for a Banana Republic like new wool coat in March of last year. Sold in the fall for $87. I was hoping for a bit more, but this was ok.
Paid $20 and drove 45 minutes each way to purchase these new in package Ikea cat curtains. Was hoping for $100 if I waited it out. In the end I settled for $75 after 7 months. Looks like some sold recently for $80 and $90, but most for less. Maybe should have been more patient.
Paid $30 for a Pottery Barn duvet + shams. Sold for $98 in 1 month. Very happy with that sale.
Paid $30 for Oofos boots (never heard of the brand before). Sold within a few weeks for $105. Yay!
I continue to have mixed results with paying up, but I almost never lose money and sometimes the wins are even bigger than those I’ve shared here (stay tuned for more at some point). Plus in my area I don’t have the luxury of buying a lot of medium-to-high dollar things super cheap. The only place for that around my area is rummage sales (and sometimes yard sales), and there aren’t that many of them. Of course none at all this year.5+

Sonia – I’ve never heard of Oofos as a brand either – but I will definitely keep those in mind in the future. 🙂
Here is my What Sold video for the 2nd week of June 2020. Bunch of small things, but honestly it is June and I am just glad things are moving out. Thanks all and take care!

Hi all, I have been hitting the garage sales on Friday mornings, now that they are open again. I have had some good luck including this complete lego set I picked up new in the box with seven other used open sets for $25. This one sold right away for $34.50 & shipping. https://www.ebay.com/itm/193514165763
I found six of these Nissan Titan bed cleats for $10. The owner said his truck had been stolen right out of his garage, so he had no use for the cleats. I put them right to work selling them at $20.50 + shipping for each. https://www.ebay.com/itm/193505752198 Today, I only have one left that was returned by the post office because of a bad address.
This Navajo ceramic is a little over a foot tall and shipping weight was 10 lbs. I have had it up for a year at $110 and took a best offer of $85 + shipping. https://www.ebay.com/itm/193251634086
I picked up ten of these sticker packs at a Daiso in Tokyo (100 yen store) and threw them up on eBay. They are not big money makers, but they have been selling steadily. https://www.ebay.com/itm/193355900313
This set of bar glasses were new in a very o.d box from 1980s. I loved the design and picked them up for $5 at an estate sale. I had them listed high at $75 and finally took a best offer of $55 plus shipping. https://www.ebay.com/itm/192662406361
My rule is to never sell clothes, but when I came across this pair of 90s Lucky Brand Blue Jeans, I thought they were something super special. Turns out they are sorta special and they sold for $38.50. https://www.ebay.com/itm/192994719127 I paid shipping this time.
I have sold this Cobb Portable Stove twice now and the buyers have both backed out. I am going to throw it up on FB Marketplace and only offer local pick up. https://www.ebay.com/itm/193437675372
I hope you all have a great week.4+
