    Well, not too much excitement last week ( I still havent listed the Legos), but my best flip of the week was sewing notions. A few weeks ago I was at an auction and they were getting ready to auction off this old trunk. Before they started they opened it up and it was FULL of fabric, zippers, ric rac, buttons, patterns etc. They decided to auction the contents of the trunk separately. I wasn’t going to bid but nobody else was bidding so I did and I ended up getting it all (3 big bags full) for $3.00. I went through it all when I got home and put my first lot on ebay. Mostly zippers, ric rac, seam binding and trims. It sold for $31.00. Still haven’t listed the fabric, tulle, patterns or buttons. On second thought I may have to keep the buttons, they’re pretty cute. 🙂

    Mugs Mugs Mugs – I did well with mugs this weekend. A set of Tiki Mugs – tiki Leilani and a souvenir from Miami Beach – paid $1, sold for $27. Then a pair of milk glass advertising mugs – Bufferin and Mastercharge – paid $1, sold for $31. Love those international bidders!

    Vintage cameras. One of my neighbors clued me in to the resale value of these. So, DH and I have been keeping our eyes out for them. We picked up two at an estate sale on a Sunday. I listed both of them that evening. Based on the completed listings for Kodak box cameras, I listed it for BIN of $14.99. I didn’t feel confident that an auction listing would be the best avenue. It sold 2 hours later. The other camera was a vintage Leica camera, and based on completed listings for those, I did an auction listing. Within 10 minutes I had an offer to purchase the camera for $500. Pretty good considering we paid $5 for each camera.
