Thanks for another great video Steve! My local thrift often has a few large speakers for just a few bucks so I’m going to need to take a closer look next time I’m in there.
I only had two sales this past week, but one was a SF Giants Will Clark T-Shirt cir 1990. My mom found a few old baseball related t-shirts in a drawer a few months ago and brought them to me over Christmas. This one sold in a day for $30. Will Clark T-Shirt

First half of the week has been pretty good so far, with some of these highlighting the sales over the past week:
Royal Fez Moroccan Tarot Deck
Took the advice of someone on this forum to check out tarot decks. Bought this one at an auction for $20 and was nervous I overpaid. Sold today for $225 + express shipping so they have it for an event on Saturday.
500+ Family Negatives
Mentioned this on the Sunday posting, took a best offer from Paris for these photo negatives. I bought a box lot of them for $20 about 7-8 months ago, sold some professional modelling negatives that I deemed “special” a couple months ago for $175 and then I took a best offer on these of $200.
Vintage Schieffelin Moet Chandon Saloon Bar Lamp
This was one of the first things I ever listed, close to 4 years ago. It was actually in my grandmother’s house in the bar my grandfather built in the basement. This was something that got me started, along with a few dozen other things that I thought were too good for the yard/house sale we had. It’s where I got the store name of “Treasures from Grandma’s”. I listed this for $200 and have had it on sale more times than I can count, all the way down to $100 and had no interest. Well, this goes to show that listing it and forgetting can work and it just takes the right person to come along – sold for $175 to someone in Canada.
(4) Vintage 1960s Bermuda Plastic Swizzle Sticks
I mentioned my swizzle stick pipe line… bought a lot of probably 1000 a couple years ago for no more than $3 and broke them up in to like groups that have been selling over the past few years. This group of 4 Bermuda sticks sold to someone in Bermuda for $20 + $18 shipping.
1939 New York World’s Fair Photo Album & Memories Notebook
Being in/around NYC, I find a lot of Worlds Fair stuff. Some of it is crap/trinkets, but this is one of those things that I thought was really cool. Notebook has some photos from the Worlds Fair, plus room to write about what you saw. Only one page is written on. Bought this at an estate sale for $10 and sold for $50.

Nice sale on the negatives! I have a few books of negatives and a whole bunch of random slides that are waiting for listing. I’m glad to see things like that sell!

Yeah, if they are the same family or something I’d sell together as a lot. If there are interesting things like Disneyland in the 1960s or landmarks before they changed, I’d separate those out.

I love how your cat gets along so well with your dog. I have two cats, and, at their best, they tolerate each other, but sometimes they don’t.
My favorite sales from the past week:
This needlepoint of a siamese cat only sold for $15.50, but what was so great about it was the feedback “I am SO happy with this!!!! It hangs just fine! Thank you thank you thank you!!!”:
This is a vintage light fixture that I bought at an online auction. It was described as requiring some cleanup, but when I got it home I found out it had paint splatters that required strong chemicals to remove. Rather than spending the time on it, I just washed it up with dish detergent and listed with the paint at a lower price. Still happy with the sale; Sold for $30, paid $4.40:

I love getting personalized feedback! Makes me feel like I’m doing something for the greater good while also making some cash in doing it.

Pretty good week so far. I sold a snow board last night, so that was great, but then I had to pack it. Couldn’t find any box to fit the 43″ board so I made my own box. I taped 2 medium priority tube mailers together length wise. That didn’t quite cover the top of the board, so I took a small tube and cut and taped it width wise to cover the top. Put a flap from a 12x12x9 on the bottom. Nearly 1 roll of tape later it was ready to go. Ryanne was my inspiration for this!
