Nice work on the Yamaha gauge cluster. Looks a lot like the one that was on my old ‘80 XS750.

Last week wasn’t great (again), but I always can come up with something to talk about:
I mentioned previously that a friend was cleaning out his garage and invited me to come out and take what I wanted. Someone must have given his wife this package of Chanel soaps, but she didn’t care to use it. Sold for $38.
I bid kind of high for a group of three Ashanti made wood stools in an online auction. The listing gave the size of the largest one, but didn’t mention the size of the other two. The photos of the other two also did not have anything to show relative size. I was quite surprised to see that these other two were “doll size” rather than people size, so I definitely bid too high. I took a best offer of $40 for this small one. I portioned off $20 of the bid for it.
I get lots of Masonic items in my inventory. This Shaver’s ritual book from 1907 cost me only $0.25, and it sold for $32.

My interesting sale of the week:
These soccer shoes are made of Kangaroo Leather. I didn’t even know that was a thing!
Apparently the top of the line soccer shoes are made out of kangaroo leather.1+

I had a good week of sales the previous week. Here are the more interesting highlights…
These Sexton wall hanging plaque decorations are hit or miss. There are a few designs out there that can sell for over a hundred bucks, but most of the others don’t go for a whole lot. For example, this kitchen item design plaque sold for $40. I picked it up for a dollar at a yard sale.
I found this old Schwinn bicycle bell in a box lot that I paid $25 for (each sellable item was only $2.50). It was in pretty poor condition but I really cleaned it up and used some chrome polish to make it shine. It sounded really nice afterwards. I sold it for $40.
I bought this mid century clock at an auction for $12. It isn’t really a well-sought-after design, but it was new in the box and the price was right. It took a long time, but it finally sold for full price of $70.
Here’s a neat little sale. I acquired a box lot of old drafting supplies at an auction for a little more than I would had liked to pay… $40. But I’m so glad I did. I’ve made well over $400 from that lot so far. Anyways, from that box came a bunch of these Autopoint eraser refills. I didn’t think much of them until I saw what they’ve sold for in the past. So I listed them for $50 and they eventually sold for full price!
Here’s my sale of the week. I bought a bunch of random stainless flatware at an auction for $10. I always like to gamble on flatware if the price is cheap enough. And this gamble paid off. A few of the pieces were made by a company called Cooper Bros. I don’t know what made them so high-end, but I listed and sold a set of four forks for $110! And I sold another exact set two days later to another buyer for the same price! I’ll be on the look out for this brand.
