Talk about having a lot to learn.....I am reading and reading and reading. It is a lot of work. It's more than just buying some old things and throwing them in your shop. You have to take good pictures, give good descriptions and make sure that you are not overpricing your items or even worse UNDER pricing them. That is one of the hardest things for me. Here are a few of things I did list this week.
I have a couple of things sitting here that I can't list, because I can't price them. One is an old wood working plane. I can't find another one anywhere exactly like it. Some of the planes I see for sale are pretty cheap and others are pretty expensive. I will keep looking until I know that I am pricing it right.
The other thing is an old glass washboard. There are lots of them for sale...some really cheap and some not so cheap. I can only find one like mine for sale anywhere and it pretty expensive. That leads me to believe that this one isn't as common as others and is probably worth more.
Then there is the very old china. I listed a cup and saucer in my shop and really wasn't sure about the price. I couldn't find the pattern anywhere. It seems to be older than everything I see on line by that company. So, I'm waiting to list any more of it until I have a better idea on what it is worth. Here it is. It's so pretty.
See, it's a lot of work....but it's fun work....and now I have to get back to it. I hope you are all well. I will be seeing Tresa on Sunday. I'll take pictures. We are down to about 35 days until baby boy's due date. I am so excited!
