I have not had much time to go to auction sales or garage sales at all this summer. Once in a while on my way to something I will find a few minutes to stop at a garage sale, I have found an item or two. I guess it is good that I am not finding much because I am having a hard time keeping up listing my items. I actually have hired my son to start my listings for me. That way I can take the photos, edit them, and finish the listing in between everything else that is going on. He only works an hour here or a half hour there, but I wouldn’t have many listings up if it weren’t for his help. My sales were good in July with 34 total sales. It always makes me happy when I have at least as many sales as the days of the month.
My most recent find was this child’s red, metal ironing board. I think it is adorable as it is. However, I think it would be fun to use it in a display in a home, because it is small.
Sticking with red, I found this Friendship Pyrex Divided Casserole Dish. Pyrex brings in a lot of traffic to my Etsy shop. It doesn’t sell quickly or for a lot of money. However I like to keep Pyrex in my shop to keep driving traffic there.
Another red item is this Enesco Rocking Horse that plays Toyland. I love the look of this little guy. He isn’t worth much, but he is so darn cute.
This diamond clock set was at an estate sale that I was able to stop by well after it started. There wasn’t much left, but if someone wants a late 70s look, this would work well.
Finally this piece I picked up at an auction sale late in the season last year. The drawers of this cabinet are large, more the size for magazines. I was hoping to figure out how to sell large, heavy items. I have been frustrated in my attempts to figure out how to estimate what it will cost to ship. I don’t want to get burned on shipping costs, so I decided to list this on our local sale site in hopes that someone wants it.
So there are a few new items, however, I am totally having auction sale withdrawals. This weekend I work all three days at my son’s last swim meet for the summer season. We have started homeschooling this week, so that is now taking up a lot of time. I am hopefully to hit one or two auctions this month yet. You can be sure I will show you my goodies when I find them.
Are you finding any great treasures?
