New goodness at auction on eBay this week!

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! I cannot believe that it is 2012 already - it seems like just yesterday I was listening to Art Bell on the radio talking about the end of the Mayan calendar in 2012 and thinking it was AGES away. Not anymore! Time really does fly when you are having fun, apparently!

eBay celebrated the end of 2011 with a whopping 3 day free auction listing fee sale, and I did the best I could to list as much as possible. Of course I don't feel like I have listed enough - and I've come to accept that I never will. ;)

Here are a few of my favorites from this week's batch of goodness:

There's lots more - click on over to check out the rest! :)

New goodness at auction on eBay this week!

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a GREAT holiday weekend - I know we sure did! I was feeling a bit under the weather yesterday, but still managed to have some fun, see some family, and watch A Christmas Story (best Christmas movie EVER!). :)

Last week I managed to list a few things at auction - not a whole lot, because I have been working more hours at my part time job lately (it has turned into almost a full time job, actually!), so working on my own stuff is only happening sporadically when I have the time...

I am proud of myself for finally tackling the stack of vintage playing cards that I have been procrastinating on for a long time - counting all those cards to make sure the decks are complete is a bit of a drag, to say the least... I have some really cool ones though so I am happy to have them listed, and excited to see how they do!

That's not all of the cards - I really had quite a lot of them! - so if you want to see the rest just click on over to check them all out. :)

It's Holiday Giveaway Time!!!!

Update 12-24-11 - Time's Up!!! I'm drawing the winners TODAY -
thanks so much for entering and spreading the love! :)

I am SO happy to be able to do an AMAZING giveaway for the holidays this year! I am partnering up with my good friend Sherry from Real Deal Books, who specializes in Antiques & Collectibles Price Guides - check her out on eBay and on Amazon. She sent me a bunch of really fun books to give away - enough that I am going to be able to have FOUR winners, and each winner will be getting a total of FIVE books! Can you tell that I am excited? ;)

Here's what you'll get:

Dames, Dolls & Delinquents
A Collector's Guide to Sexy Pulp Fiction Paperbacks
It's no secret the sexy and racy cover art of femme fatales from the golden age of paperbacks and magazines exalts the female form in all its sexy and sultry allure. Still today, these lustful, and sometimes lurid images are enticing and artistically inspiring. In this book, from the founder and editor of Paperback Parade magazine, you will encounter an amazing assortment of nearly 700 full-color cover images of sexy, semi-dressed pin-up dolls, dangerous bad girls and deadly dames, not to mention lust, violence and passion expressed in fights and conflicts of all types. In addition this reference to renegade literature features details to help with identification, including title, author, cover artist, publisher, date, and values for three grades of condition.

Bad Girls Need Love Too
Pleasure Yourself With Pulp Fiction
Anxious to undress, these dangerous dolls ply their womanly wares to get whatever they want: men, power and sex - lots of sex. Yet to quench their fiery desires they crave more, much more. See, even sultry sinners long for love. Bad Girls Need Love Too is a frolicking celebration of pulp fiction floozies doomed to keep looking for love in all the wrong places. Thankfully, repeating the same mistake over and over again has never been more fun, or outrageous.

Creepy Ass Dolls
Dolls creep us out, and if you believe they're just innocent playthings, your soul will be the first to get ripped out while you sleep. Creepy-Ass Dolls is full of twisted little porcelain and plastic playmates with chilling thoughts, sinister plans, and disturbing enjoyments, whether it?s becoming future fashion designers of clothes that eat skin or giving murder hugs. Remember, there's a reason dolls are kept in a toy box and if they get out, pray your soul is yours to keep.

Two Warman's Pocket Field Guides
Sherry included a variety of these, each winner will get two - I can't tell you for sure which titles you will receive...

Vintage Safety Posters Are BACK On Etsy!

One of my favorite scores a few years back was a huge lot of vintage National Safety Council workplace safety posters - those of you who have been following the blog for a while might remember them. VERY fun and kind of hard to find, so I wasn't really expecting to be able to snag another big lot of them.

But guess what? I DID! Nearly 80 of them actually - and they are all now listed in my Etsy shop. I guess wonders never really cease in this business! :) Here are a few of my favorites:

Ok, I guess that is more than just a few - but there is so much to love!! Be sure to click on over to check them all out, if things go how they went the last time, they won't be in my shop for long!
