Awesome clock sale Steve! I love that you are able to restore great items.
Sales are slowing a bit.

Yes, that the cat clock was a great sale. I recall that one of my teachers in elementary school had a clock like that, but one of the newer ones.
My husband was looking all over the house looking for something, so he ended up cleaning out his closet. He found this new battery for a drill that he never used. It sold overnight for $30. He eventually found the thing he was looking for in the laundry room.
Last year, I bought a set of very heavy stoneware from Target in an online auction. Someone messaged me about reducing the shipping costs. I went and switched all the listings to have FedEx as the first choice. They bought three sets of 2 plates (6 altogether) for $42, and, the next day, someone else bought one set of two dinner plates for $14.50. I bought the whole set for about $5, and I have a whole lot left.
Three years ago, I posted on the forum trying to figure out a glass thing. I didn’t realize that it had a lid and thought it might be one of those glass insulators. I was helped tremendously by the community here, and finally figured out that it was a weighing jar from Bell Labs. Jay suggested a $199 or best offer price, but I reduced it little by little over time. It finally sold for best offer of $45. I paid about $5.
Here’s my post asking for help:
I purchased this messenger bag about four years ago in an online auction lot. It’s in great shape, but I guess the style isn’t that desirable. I paid about $1, and it sold on best offer for $27.
So, cashmere/wool coats sell really well, right? Well, how about ones with moth damage? I purchased this from my neighbor’s online auction. She went to the Fashion Institute in NY, so she just has a great eye for style. And, yes, a moth eaten wool coat from the 1950s sold for best offer of $25.
When we aren’t in quarantine, I run a monthly lunch get-together with people I used to work with. One guy used to repair tube radios. He gave me a box of vacuum tubes for me to sell. I found that one type of tube would be worth decent money if they worked, but I had no way to test them. I decided to put them on auction. Only one listing had bids, and the other two sold at the asking price. I made $85 total. Not bad!
Here are some commission sales for a family friend; a lot of assorted vintage brooches for $40, a Fenton pitcher for $55 with best offer, and a vintage coffee grinder for $50.

@Steve and @ChristineR, thanks for the great videos. I really enjoy them.
My sales last week were pretty slow (as was my progress DIYing the bathroom update which is distracting me from hiking and eBay). The only really noteworthy sale was this 1961 Jack Poker Playing card set https://www.ebay.com/itm/193164866399 I bought it for $2.00 and sold for $78.50 (shipping included). This fell under the rule of thumb of buying anything new in the box from that past AND the rule of thumb of buying any kind of adult card games.

Great sale on the cat clock! Love the starburst glasses too.
