I sold this vintage banjo barometer on Etsy for the set for a play on Broadway. I can't decide if it's okay or not to divulge buyers in this type of situation. I really want to because I find it really exciting but a lot of people say all purchases should be private. What do you say? In the last couple of months I've sold two items to upcoming tv series and now this item to a play. Since I sold a few things for set design I am obsessed with the set design when I watch a movie/tv of a vintage era. I keep pausing to look at every little thing i the set. I realize now that lots of that comes from ebay and etsy. A woman on etsy got a piece of her art on a Netflix original series. I started watching the show so that I could see her piece and then binge watched the entire series. Waiting for season 2 now :)
My other exciting sale is also a BOLO. I purchased several Webkinz plush toys at the weigh and pay last weekend. It was half off day so they were cheap and I took just the ones I thought were unique in some way. I know absolutely NOTHING about Webkinz. I got them home and was researching them and found out that the Webkinz in the Signature series can be quite valuable. I turned a purchase of less than a dollar into a sale for over $100 in one day. Here are the completeds on Webkinz Signature Series.
I also sold an American Girl plush owl for $20. It's about 5" tall and cost about 25 cents. I used to be grossed out by used plush. I envisioned remnants of baby drool and sticky food hands all over them. I currently have 20 plush listed in my ebay store. I purchased a really cool plush parrot hand puppet this week. He looked a little scruffy but with a comb out he looks brand new. Do you sell plush?
Have a good weekend. Find some treasures. Sell lots of stuff!
