Okay, most every weekend is great, but it’s been a while since I’ve found some big ticket items to resell until this past Saturday. First, the results from some of the items I posted about last time:
Vintage Playmobil: paid 50 cents, sold for $8.30
Dansk grinder: paid $3, sold for $31.00
Harry Potter mug: paid 25 cents, sold for $10.75
Vaseline hobnail glass: paid $1, sold for $7.16
I am on the fence about keeping the silver necklaces or selling them for melt value. Silver has gone down, so I don’t think I’d get much for them. I’ll hold on to them for now.
So, two weekends ago I went to some garage sales with Agent S. I didn’t get too much, but did get an old basket with some vintage jewelry pieces for $1…including a sterling silver ring. Nice! I don’t have any pics of it yet. I’ll stash it with my other sterling silver for now.
This past weekend Agent S and I went garage saling again and found some great things! I got a really cute dollhouse style bookshelf for my daughter’s room for $15, some beautiful upholstery fabric for $12 (to make new pillows with), 3 purses to resell for $12 total (vintage Coach, B. Makowsky, Lladro), a mid century swivel desk chair for $5, Ralph Lauren cologne for $2 and some other small things. On my way home, I decided to stop by the one where I got the chair because she said she had more stuff to add. At that point, I had spent all my cash and just had some coins (less than $2 for sure). I found a beautiful bowl signed by Russel Wright for $5. I asked if she’d take a check, but she told me to just give her all my coinage and we’d call it even. When I got home to research it, I found out that it will likely sell for $200+! I also found a vintage tea towel that had never been used for $3. It sold within a couple of hours of listing it for $32. Not bad!
