There is such a variety of items out there to buy and sell. Here are my top ten sales on eBay, not including dolls, toys and games.
Starting at the lowest price is this vintage baseball trophy dated 1955. I think that some of it may be bakelite. It had a cool look and although I didn’t have any experience with similar items I took a chance for $3. It sold for $39.99.
This pin was thrown on a table at a rummage sale. I think I was charged $1 for it. It was marked 800 silver and had inlaid stone in it which is, I found is called Pietra Dura. I though it was very pretty and unique. I like the subject matter of birds on a birdbath. It sold for $45.
These small egg cups were so charming! They are marked “Cutie Pie” and there are several items with this same style. I picked these up for $5 at an estate sale. Even though one had a small hole in the center, the pair sold for $49.99
This pyrex piece was marked $5 at another rummage sale. I looked up “black roosters” and it appeared that this was a rare pattern. It had some slight discolorations but still sold for $55.
Anri is a company in Italy that produces many intricately carved wooden figures. I picked this up because of the subject matter and the fine detail. Only after I brought it home did a see a faint Anri mark on the bottom. It sold for $59.99.
I was at a rummage sale not finding too much when I started looking at the linens. This duvet cover was marked Lilly Pulitzer, $2. I was surprised to find it as I had come very late to this sale. It sold for $99.99. Her prints are usually so colorful and distinctive, they are hard to miss.
This vintage framed print was $10 at a library rummage sale. It is entitled “A Yard of Puppies” and that’s literally what it is. It wasn’t easy to ship but I was happy to do it when it sold for $99.99.
This is a small ceramic leaf dish turned out to be a Stig Lindberg design. I believe he is a Scandinavian artist. I found this in one of the bags that hangs in the thrift store. Don’t overlook the bags! It sold for $99.99.
Also don’t overlook vintage skin care products. This was $10 at a rummage sale. I looked it up before I purchased it and was surprised. Most of the items weren’t even sealed. It is called Airbonn Nutrimin skin care and sold for $125.
This is the highest selling item I sold all year. It is similar to one I found in 2016 which is why I recognized it. I picked it up for $10 at a rummage sale. It is mid century modern nail wall art and sold for $200.
