Ryanne and Jay travel to Williamsburg, Brooklyn to interview lighting restoration expert Dawn Ladd of Aurora Lampworks. Dawn was gracious enough to sit down with us and answer a few questions about how she started and how she runs her business. Check out her gallery of work. She’s done some amazing stuff and really has an expert perspective on the value of antique and vintage fixtures. This interview can help you learn how to sell vintage lights and lamps on ebay.
For the first time ever, all four of us talk about what’s going on in our stores this week. Wendy and Mikey deal with non-payers and discuss using fixed price on items they know will sell high. Ryanne and Jay explain their notebook methods (see scan below) and discuss their success with selling furniture.

Always scavenging. NYC is a prime place to turn trash into cash!
We all look back on what has worked, was surprising and inspiring and what we can look forward to in the future on the podcast. Also, Jay gets in a fight with a homeless dude in NYC over who gets first dibs on NYU trash night.
Wendy talks to Ben from Voodoo Vintage & Estate in New Orleans. He’s been finding some very unique NOLA items at estate sales and selling with great success through ebay. All it took was one phone call from Wendy to convince him that opening an eBay store was the right thing to do!
