Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! This was a nice weekend for sales even though it rained off and on on Saturday. I went to a sale at a church festival that I overheard some people talking about at the Boy Scout sale I had gone to. It turned out that they had a toy tent which is one of my favorite things! I found some Fisher Price items, some Playmobil and some Mego figures. Many of the Fisher Price items need cleaning so they are not photographed yet. Two of the Mego action figures are monsters – Frankenstein and Dracula. Those were the best among the ones I bought. The Mego figures are from the 70’s. Mego made tons of action figures and some can be very valuable.
Before I hit the church sale I went to a sale at a school. There was not much there but don’t forget to check the stuffed animal bins. I found a Baby Bear Surprise with 4 babies in her! I did not know there was a bear version of these toys. I knew there was a Puppy surprise and a Kitty surprise that were collectible. Keep an eye out for them!
I am also listing some vintage RC cars that I found at the church I went to last Thursday night. I don’t know much about these items except I saw some people talking about them on Youtube so we’ll see what happens.
Finally, I had a situation with a customer who bought a Barbie doll after asking me a million questions about it and requesting that I put a buy it now on the auction for her. She is unhappy with the doll and returning it. She says it smells too musty. One of her questions to me was “Does the doll have a musty smell?” Guess what I said? “Yes – it does.” And yet she purchased it and is now returning it for that reason. I find that costumers that ask tons of questions are the first to be unhappy with their purchase. I think those people are really better off making their purchases in a retail setting. Ebay is not for everyone.
Hope you had some good finds and a great weekend!!
