New goodness at auction on eBay this week!

I am finally recovered enough from Thanksgiving to sit down and do a blog post - I hope you all had as much fun as I did! I stuffed myself silly with my family, and laughed over old pictures with them. Of course, I snagged a few to scan in and post on Facebook... :)

My auctions are ending on Monday, due to eBay having their listing fee sale last Monday instead of their usual Tuesday. Kinda perfect since it is Cyber Monday! I'm still finding it hard to believe that it is almost Christmas, at this point I am expecting it to not fully hit me until, oh, around New Year's or so...

Anyway here's a few of my goodies that are listed this week, as usual click on over if you want to see everything!

It's time for vintage Christmas goodness!!

Hard to believe that it is time to list Christmas decorations - but, it is - so, I did! I like to save all the holiday items that I find throughout the year and list them all in the same week. It's like my annual Christmas party for the business :)

I spread the items around a bit this year - some stuff at auction on eBay, some stuff straight into my store on eBay, and a few things to my Etsy shop. I actually have a handful of things left to list, but the first batch of auctions is ending tonight so I didn't want to put off the blog post any longer...

I have too many things to feature them all here, so I'll just show you my favorites - just click the links above if you want to check out everything I've got! :)

Vintage Glass Christmas Ornaments
I actually have 4 boxes of glass ornaments,

I have 5 different Bucilla Kits up at auction, hoping someone who
is craftier than I am snags them!

New goodness at auction on eBay this week!

My auctions are really hopping this week - not only have I had good luck with the Lightolier catalog that I posted about already, but wait til you see what these phone books I found at an estate sale are going for! They are going to get a post all their own over on Flipping Vintage, but I had to show them off here too... I can't wait to see what the final bids are for them!

Here is my favorite, which I thought would be the most valuable, but it is currently in 2nd place - there is still about a day left so time will tell!

This one is currently in 1st place, two people got in a bidding war over it the first couple of days it was listed, neither of them have bid lately though, so I am wondering if they will go at it again at the end, or if they are done and it will sell for its current price - which wouldn't make me sad in the slightest, I mean WOW!

The last two haven't been quite as exciting to watch - one has 1 bid the other one has 0 bids - BUT, they both have several watchers so you never know how it will go until the auctions are over...

Also getting some action are the 3 lots of vintage unused greeting cards I listed, that my Dad scored at a local auction. My Dad ROCKS, if I haven't mentioned it lately! :)

And of course I also listed a few other goodies as well... And there will be a LOT more coming in the next several weeks, I've been shopping like a crazy person this month, stocking up for winter - I may have over-done it just a *tiny* bit - I actually don't know where I am going to stash it all! So hopefully the mess will be a great incentive to list list list - wish us luck!! :)

Vintage 1934 Lightolier Catalog - At Auction On eBay Now!

Check out this AMAZING 1934-1935 Lightolier Style Book lighting catalog that I scored at an estate sale last weekend - it is at auction right now, and definitely deserves a blog post all of its own!

Every lamp in here is totally swoon-worthy, and the catalog itself is pretty rare, since it was a limited edition that was only distributed to folks who were "professionally or commercially engaged in the field of lighting equipment." It has a bid for $49.95 right now with a ton of watchers, I can't wait to see where the final price ends up! :)
