Surprised by what sells..and some great finds in the loft..

Hello all me again..i am just sitting here minding my own and thinking.
I have quite a few items listed on Ebay at the moment..now what i thought would sell and sell well was all the clothes,,posh frocks . But nope it has surprised me at what did..the Vintage Napkins,Postcards..all sold with in hours of being listed. A beautiful Photograph Album (the country diary of an edwardian lady)..and the most surprising was Fuzzy Felt..admittedly it was huge bundle of it and all the mats and huge playmats as well..that sold within a day..amazing really.
I meant to mention this earlier but i forgot..duh!!
In the loft we found 2 great big bags of Curtains and also some lovely Blue Flannellette sheets and 2 Pink ones..and some Retro Dinosaur Curtains..they look very old and haven't faded at all,i can't remember ever having them up at any of our windows...the sheets will be washed thoroughly and used on the beds..the bag of curtains will be kept either for use or being cut up to use in other things.
We also found a Chess Board..the Chess pieces are broken unfortunately but i may look for a set later on in the year.
I will keep you informed of any other treasures i find lurking in my loft.
Have you ever sold anything that you thought would never sell in a million years.

  1. I have the same experience with eBay. I am always surprised with what sells quickly.
    Some things no one seems to want!

  4. I have been thinking about selling some things on ebay also. Is it difficult to set up an account?

    1. I found it really easy Debbie.
      You do need a Paypal account to link the financial side of things, but that is easy too. You can look at similar listings for whatever it is that you would like to sell and get ideas for descriptions and prices.
      A camera too is needed, your mobile phone camera is fine. Good pictures help sales.
      Here in the US I get 50 free listing a month, along with promotions which offer free listing also. I bet the UK gets similar deals.
      Good luck, let us know how you get on.

    2. Hi Debbie honestly like Pam says its really easy..if you buy from Ebay the selling is so easy..if i can then anyone can..good pictures and very accurate descriptions help too. It has step by step instructions on how to set up a selling account.
      Good luck

  5. I bought my 2yr old granddaughter a little fuzzy felt for Xmas as one of her presents. Just a standard small zoo one. It cost 9.99 - they've gone up a lot since my own children had them in the 1980's! Should have saved them!

    1. Yes they are darn expensive to buy new..we had about £30 worth just in a box doing nothing..so i was very happy and surprised to see it go.

  6. You never know what folk will go mad for, it's all very surprising on EBay. I guess vintage toys are just very in vogue these days. Maybe your dinosaur curtains would do well!!

    I know a lot of the old curtain fabrics sell well Sanderson etc, and Laura Ashley fabric is always snapped up especially the older designs.

  7. I've never sold on ebay, but have considered it. I hope all your things sell well. Attics can be real treasure troves!
