I have been finding quite a few handbags for resale lately. I was at one sale and spotted this unusual brown leather bag. Inside it had the signature Ettienne Aigner which I know as a modern designer of handbags. This was an early bag of his. It’s not worth too much but I thought that was interesting. I picked up a LeSportSac with the theme of cats on it. It sold for an offer of $20. People like their cats! I picked up a bag by Debbie Brooks that has a design on it called a Magnafab. I believe it is a magnetic piece that can be switched out to change the look of the bag. My best find recently was probably this Disney Halloween themed Loungefly backpack. It was in a box at a tag sale marked Children’s bags $1.
I have also picked up a few wallets recently. In the same box with the Halloween backpack there was a Queen of Hearts Alice in Wonderland wallet as well as a Harley Quinn wallet and a Halloween wallet. I also recently picked up a Sydney Love wallet illustrated with fashion accessories. I am hoping to get at least $20 for each of these.
One sale I was at seemed to have quite a few mid century items. Some of these I am not really familiar with but they were cheap enough that I could take a chance and hopefully learn something. I believe these two vases are mid century modern pieces. The gray and white piece is marked Germany and the other piece I believe is from Japan.
I also bought a candle holder from Denmark and a Rosenthal plate with a stylized letter K on it.
I have picked up some vintage dolls too including a little Polly Pocket set, the Bionic Woman and a Mego doll that licks her ice cream cone!
The Mego doll came from an estate sale where there was an entire room full of dolls. Unfortunately I didn’t recognize many of them but they had these two Rushton monkeys sitting on a chair together. They were marked at $20 each. The older Rushton plush (from the 1950s – 60s) can do really well. These two are from 1978 so I don’t really know how they will do. They still have some age to them and are in good condition.
I am happy to have so many sales to go to. Sometimes the amount of listing I then have to do gets overwhelming but then, I remember the winter months when I had very little to list and I push through!
