I did a ton of thrifting this weekend, but I haven't photographed anything yet, so I don't have any new booty to share. Rather than sit this Thrift Share Monday out, though, I decided to show you a few previously-thrifed items that haven't yet made it to my Etsy store. I am hoping you all can give me some advice as to whether or not they are worth listing. Sound good?
This is one of those nostalgia purchases I probably should have left at the store. It's a circa-1960s Fisher Price Family Farm. The barn itself is in pretty good shape, but the animals/people the original set came with aren't all here. Still worth trying to sell?
I love this little toy so much! It has a name and "Made in Russia" written on the bottom. The chickens are attached to strings, which are all attached to a wooden ball, so you can bounce it or swing it around and change the speed and cadence at which they peck. Anybody got any idea what it actually is? I'm guessing it's just so tourist souvenir type thing, but I love it anyway.
This is a Maine promotional cookbook, I think, complete in its original mailer box, from 1967. It's one of those things I have no actual use for, but I just couldn't leave in the store. Sellable, you think?
The tag on this silver fruit basket says "Leonard," but that's all I know about it. Anybody seen one like it? I am not sure it's vintage--it may just have that sort look about it. I haven't yet decided if it's a keeper or a seller.
These 13 Jackson Custom China Paul McCobb Falls Creek pattern saucers definitely fall under the "why the heck did I buy that?" heading. I don't remember buying them, or what I was thinking when I did. Does anybody see any reason they shouldn't go in my out box?
I believe these individually plastic wrapped cocktail forks, from American Tempo Flatware, are mid-century. However, I have no idea who would want 16 mid-century cocktail forks. Should I try to sell them as a lot? Break them into two sets of 8? Four sets of 4? The mind boggles.
There are tons more, of course. I have a whole room full of stuff that I am not precisely sure why I bought or what I intend to do with. But this is a start. Please, advise me!
