@Doubly – I really like those prints and you got a nice price for them.
@Steve – the birds chirping in the background of your dog video are a reminder that garage sale season is nigh.
We didn’t sell anything earth-shattering this week. Just a few bread & butter items:
Got this for a buck at a garage sale:
This was laying around the house:
Got this at the auction for $5:

Ooh, I have to get these. Thanks for the tip. Does anyone remember the Lovejoy (antique dealer/picker/faker) mysteries that used to be on A & E years ago? That is also a great mystery series. The author is Jonathan Gash. Lovejoy is a divvy (aka he can spot a valuable antique a mile away).
Wow, Wyoming! Say Hi to Sheriff Longmire. Love that show!03/28/2017 at 9:04 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 303: Failure of Imagination #15460
Wow Doubly – great find on those slides!!!03/28/2017 at 8:59 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 303: Failure of Imagination #15459
I just pulled all of my book listings out of Amazon. I love them as a buyer, but as a seller it is rough. Last book I sold I owed THEM money.
It got embarrassing when my phone would cha-ching loudly at work. People wondered what it was. Turned the volume down a lot after that, but I miss it. Also, my phone, like Linda Shields above, doesn’t cha-ching anymore. Until I pick it up, then sometimes I will get it. Otherwise, have to keep checking email. Wah! Time for a new phone maybe.03/23/2017 at 1:23 pm in reply to: What Sells On eBay: Fur hat, Wire recorder, Phono cartridge, Boombox #15166

We had two $1 yard sale blankets that we cut up, lots of bubble wrap and shredded paper, a bigass box which had to be cut down…. It weighed 63 lbs and thankfully FedEx took it for $33.03/23/2017 at 12:48 pm in reply to: What Sells On eBay: Fur hat, Wire recorder, Phono cartridge, Boombox #15160
This was our best sale this week. Took forever to pack them up. Paid $15 at auction which included the table. We’re keeping the table for now. These are going to Brooklyn NY.
Got this for 50 cents a couple weeks ago at an estate sale, sold for $45:

I waited a couple of days and sent the request again but meanwhile ebay was sending me some vaguely threatening sounding emails. So I called them and followed their advice. Well, of course, their advice basically threw me under the ebay bus. It’s hard to ignore those ominous sounding emails though.03/20/2017 at 12:51 pm in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 302: How to Deal with Dreaded eBay Scammers Lurking Everywhere!! #14891
Thanks for the advice on how to handle returns. I copied it over to where I can consult it if needed. One question though, how do you handle someone who doesn’t respond to your request for photos of damage? This happened to us when we sold a vintage Samsonite suitcase and the guy claimed that one latch was broken. We asked twice for photos but got nothing. Thanks!03/16/2017 at 1:20 pm in reply to: Here's one for the Books. Cust. Blows up and is note even a Buyer! #14645
Omigosh I had that “you ok bro” message several times on a vintage Levi Garrett trucker hat. He made several lowball offers but I held out for full price ($50). I think he was from Singapore or something like that.
For the jerky troll who complained about the Mr. Peanut listing, I wouldn’t have even written back to him. Block!
Got this for $5 at our very first auction about 16 months ago, sold for 80:
I’ve had this since I was a little kid, sold for 85:
This was given to me by someone who’d been to Egypt back in the 80’s, sold for 50:
