Got one today
« on: May 19, 2011, 09:15:03 PM »
10x10, might of paid a lil much for it. I know I got my money back, just not sure on how much profit yet. Paid $400 for it. Desk that I got to refinish, 1950's style payphone, dual tank compressor, 1968 MLB Magnetic Game lunchbox, Razor electric bike(needs some work), about $100 in clown figurines, gamecube, & 4 vintage japanese paintings in glass frame. Those are the big ticket items I got. Oh also sprang the hell out of my wrist trying to pull up a small footlocker full of stuff. Should not have did that with one hand. lol. Oh also forgot I got a 1947 Webster's New International Dictionary Of The English Language.

Will be uploading pix later.

Ebay auction just ended on that payphone. The phone brought me 195.50 + 25 shipping and handling. I say it did real well.

Always nice when just one item pays 50% of the lkr cost!  I bet the phone company didn't make that much off it when it was in operation.  ;D

Just sold the MLB Magnetic Game Lunch Box from 1968 for $20.

Unfortunately, I will not be making a profit off this unit, even though I am half way there now. Only reason being is because I am deciding to keep the air compressor. Was going to buy one here soon anyway. And if I bought it brand new, I would of paid more for it then I paid for my lkr.  I should break even though. Got to spend a lil more money fixing up a Solid Wood Vintage Desk and the Razor Chopper Bike.

If you keep that compressor, that is money saved.
Money saved is just as good as money earned. So calculate your savings into the total math. That will bring you way a head on this unit.

Good work!

Agreed... With our interests and hobbies, not to mention general household items, we find a few things in most units we keep. I just keep track separately of the items kept or given to family/friends so I have a good idea of the profit or loss from units.
