Storage Auctions

Bought some interesting items... But have no idea of the prices, help?

Hey,

I'm sort of a beginner you could say and have a little inventory but was kind of curious what my items were worth.

So here it is:

Jim Beam Circus Wagon Decanter

(Okay condition, little scratched, a few broken pieces) but the most important thing is what the wagon was holding, a nice china stone whiskey bottle which was in good condition. I seen these things for different prices but was ready to hear a second opinion. (The Decanter is 1979 by the way, and I seen no pricing and any info. NOTHING. on this clock, :/ )

Double Bell 1970's Lisa and Bob - Love Is Alarm

Little scratched as well but not bad! The Alarm was made in West Germany.

Hand Painted Leather Tiger Statue

Good condition, little scratched here and there under the tiger, and there is a little rip on its nose but besides that it is pretty nice. (Not sure f date, but I seen different prices on this.)

And a few Wade England pieces, no biggy tho. 2Koala's, Tiger, Polar bear, and a turtle. Different from others that you would see, (the turtle)

That's it, nothing big really in my inventory but hope I can make more money so I can do more Auctioning/Picking.

Thanks for all anwers, really appreciated.

Depends on your location, and where you are selling at. Yard sale cheap, Flea market maybe a little higher price, Ebay who knows.

Ebay search found this. Does not look like what you described, ie. the bottle.

The value of something is only what someone is willing to pay.

Found a Wade England Turtle on ebay also for a few bucks. With no bidders.

My advise is to sell it for what you can get and move on. Don't sweat the small stuff because you will become over whelmed in this business.
Talking from experience here, have totes full of stuff to either try and sell on ebay or just sell at Flea. The trick is to have new inventory moving all the time.
Sounds like your items are in a niche market. Have to find that buyer looking for that item, to get a good price.

Good luck

Oh I am following my own advise this weekend at the Flea, priced to walk away.  ;D

BTW, I have to agree with Money....turn and burn baby, turn and burn!   ;)  (Unless, of course, it's a 16th century sword, dueling pistols, $50,000 diamond ring, or Quadzilla!!)

Good luck!

Thank you!
Wish everyone could understand this.

On the selling side too. So many times I've sold something and a friends has said it was worth more.
Tell them not to me! I want it gone, need the money, space, whatever.
Sitting on something for 6months to make another $50 when in that time I coulda used the money from the sale to turn and burn ten more items over for x-amount makes no sense to me.....
