For the first time in months, I can get into my dining room.
I sent a good size group of merchandise to an eBay reseller late October. He did a great job for me. Pictures were fantastic and his descriptions were always exacting. I was very pleased.
He came again Sunday and took the rest, including the linens and my 5 foot Snoopy.. Some is already up for sale . Pleased at that.
This man has a 100% rating and I can see why. I read all the replies from his customers, whether it was my merchandise or not.
It has been a pleasure dealing with him. He knows I am not trying to make money, just move things along to a new owner. There were some great buys for some folks.
I'll tell you what did poorly.
Early brass push-up candlesticks. I had 4 sets plus 3 singles. Lost badly on them, they were in great condition and had the push up in tact.
Glass and china did well, Waterford extremely well.
American Indian pottery and blanket did great as did some of the old baskets.
Silver plate--so-so. The Victorian silver plated items were not worn but did not bring many bidders.
It is fun watching what goes on. I get an e-mail every time he posts new merchandise so I can see how things are going.
Got my fingers crossed. His postings are on my watch list.
Using a reseller was a first for me and he did better than I could ever have done.
I am thankful.

Now, every time I get a pile of resellable things together I call the reseller and she drives right over to pick it up. It is listed in a few days time and all I have to do is wait for my check. So glad your experience was a good one.
