selling vintage toys on ebay?
I know what a item should bring in a particular time period by checking closed auctions. So what I do is a fixed price at what I would want for the item. Then I allow offers to be made. I am never in a hurry to sell, so they may sit for a while but they do get sold.
I found my little ponies all from the early 80′s still in boxes. I know what I will get out of them. However my question is should I use a buy it now option or just set the auction at .99 and see what happens? Thanks!
I have been selling toys on ebay for 10 years now, the market is not great at this point, I have several electronic stores one on ruby lane and one on ebay. Dolls and Toys are my thing.
If the market moves up then I may send them to auction, now is not a great time because many are on vacation or just getting out of school. So fixed price would be a good option. Hope this helps
Vintage Toys Make You Feel Like You're Playing in a Museum
Have you ever gone into a museum (not a natural history museum or a natural museum or a science museum with dinosaur bones, but any other kind of historical museum where they feature old products, such as toys, and really thought you'd like to play with one of them? Well, today there are a ton of different ways to make this dream come true. No, you will not be able to actually go up to the shelf at a museum, pull a toy off, and begin playing with it however you see fit, but you can go online and order vintage toys which are taking a big place in the toy market these days.
If you haven't noticed, within the recent hipster trend, there has been a highly increased interest in vintage toys among other vintage things. Whereas when we were young we used to think that old was the most uncool thing you can be, now people are dressing up in old suits and muumuus that their grandmas and grandpas used to wear because they think the vintage look is cool. To that end they are going through all kinds of other fads, but they are also pulling out all kinds of other vintage products like vintage toys. Captain Crunch has gone back to advertising their cereal the same way that they used to advertise it years ago with the old cartoon logo that they used to use instead of the one that they have used up until recently.
