I spend way too much time on eBay these days,
so it's no surprise that I run across many unusual items up for bid.
I add them to my "watch" list out of curiosity more than anything else.
I just recently discovered you can only have 100 items in your watch list.
I guess that proves my point..I spend way too much time on ebay!
Any way, I'm not talking about weird listings like
An imaginary girlfriend, an ex-husband,
The image of Virgin Mary on toast, or Britney Spears' chewed gum.
I'm talking about the unusual , really cool items that are probably a once in a lifetime find.
I love to watch the auctions, so here are a few of my favorites over the past weeks.
When I first saw it, I immediately thought ,what a great
pantry or armoire this would make! Apparently, no one else had the need for it because it only reached $10 the 1st time around and $45 when relisted.
A wonderful antique hand carved child's harp
Loved this, and even had the spot picked out for it above my tole tray display.
I thought I might get lucky because it stayed well under $40....until the end.
It sold for $130. Probably worth much more, but
I'm sure someone will treasure it now.
A Carousel Rounding Board
This antique carousel rounding board received no bids
with a starting price of $125, although I see it just re listed.
Maybe it didn't sell because it's 8 feet long, and a pick up only.
I would have seriously considered this piece had it been 4 feet long!
I'd love to see the look on my husband's face if I dragged one of these home.
I saw the potential in this piece, but only because I recently saw an antique rounding board in someone's home recently.
A talented artist, Lori of Decorating with Art was commissioned to paint cherubs & roses across the board and it was gorgeous!
It was electrified and all I can say is WOW ! I know I will never see anything like it again.
I hope to return to the home in a few months so I can snap a picture of it for you all to see.
General Store Price Tag Set
A near complete box of 695 price tags and holders,
sold for $128.00. Loved it, but what would I DO with it?!!!
It amazes me that something like this survived all these years.
