Well, I’m pleased to report that I have two bids on my Club Aluminum Griddle! Amusingly enough, the two bids came from one person and it seems they bid twice. I’m not disappointed though, a bid is a bid and it means that if nothing else it sells! I will now take a second to reflect on my success…YAY!!!!!… ok I’m good for now. Anyway, It still has two days on it so anyone who was considering bidding better do so quickly or forever hold your peace. I certainly hope it gets a few more bids. According to the completed listings they sell for $20-$25. Oh well, at least I don’t have to look at those red numbers that speak heartache into my soul. Every time I go to my page and see the red prices my heart sinks and I can hear that little voice saying,”haha we aren’t selling! No one wants this junk!” So when Something sells I just get way too excited and start running around telling everyone within reach about my success.
In other news, I’ve added a few more items since my last post. I already had the griddle, a Winnie The Pooh Original Treasury box set, a Royal China apple pie plate that has the recipe on it, and the sugar and cream. I’ve since added a Gameboy Color bundle with a teal Gameboy Color, two Pokemon games, two link cables a few other games and a case, and a lot of vintage Enamelware. The Enamelware is pretty cool. It is all white with black trim. There are three pots and a mug, I think. I’m a bit bummed that they aren’t in better shape but one of the pots is probably usable and the others would make awesome shabby chic planters for flowers or silk flower arrangements. I’ve seen it done and I really liked it. I even saved one of the wash basins I found and have opted to use it rather than put it on Ebay.
It is quite frustrating to see the amount of views I get and even watchers but continue to see that taunting red every time I check. I truly hope that the reason for that is the amount of time left before the auctions end. This drives me so mad that I’ve strongly considered trying out the “Buy it Now” ‘feature but I have a feeling it wouldn’t work much better. Plus, I like the idea of the auction and the bidders.
I mentioned in the last post that I would probably talk about the neat stuff we get in at the store I work for. I have to say, it has been a fun week so far. We got two vintage scooters in the other day. One of them is called Kick ‘n Go and it has a pedal that you push down while you ride that makes it move forward. It even has a chain similar to one on a bicycle. The other is just a really pretty red color and as far as I can remember it’s main attribute is being adorable. I also started digging in the back room (it is rather ominous at times) and I pulled out a bunch of old cameras. I love photography and old cameras so I really enjoyed this particular job. I’m quite proud of how my photos turned out. My dad made a sweep for the store which is clear plexiglass with white paper behind it that gives the item an awesome white background. My boss gave him $200 dollars for it, so I use it at the store but I really wish I had it here to use for my ebay store as well. My boss would probably let me use it if I asked but I’ll do what I can for now.
Among the old cameras was a Polaroid Instant camera that looks like it is from the 60s or 70s. It has a case and everything and I think it is so neat looking. We also have an antique fold out camera from around 1910. I wanted to take it home so badly! I’m especially proud of the pictures I took of it! We’ve been getting some really fun stuff in lately, I say fun because I like the stuff therefore it is more fun to photograph. I’ll put the link to the store as well as some of the pictures on here so you can admire my work. (Yes, that is a little cocky but at least I love my job) Well, two more days until I go out on another yardsale hunt and hopefully find some fun stuff to blog about. In the mean time I may get on to mention some of the other things I plan to list or I might just update everyone on my progress. Either way, I won’t be writing until I have something fun to write about but that will at least be by Saturday…I hope!
‘Till then check out my store and happy reading/bidding!
