Yes, they do! A while back, I attended a bachelorette party in San Francisco. At one point, we stopped at the Buena Vista. The Buena Vista is a historic bar famous for its Irish coffees. The Buena Vista hasn’t been remodeled in……maybe ever. Not sure. I love it! It’s so San Francisco.
Anyway, as I was sitting at one of the tables, I saw a stack of small paper napkins. They were low-quality napkins and not that attractive, but since San Francisco is one of the coolest cities on earth, I thought I might be able to sell them on eBay. Being in San Fran is like being in Paris. People from all over the world know San Francisco!
When I got home, I created a multi-quantity listing. I set the price at $9.99. Since they were free, and it was a multi-quantity listing, it seemed worth it to me!
Well, I sold one! It was on sale, so it didn’t sell for full price, but it got me thinking about other restaurant items I could sell. I’ve talked about selling vintage restaurant ashtrays, plates, and mugs before but never napkins. A friend also suggested that I pick up some cheap frames and frame the napkins to attract more buyers. These aren’t that nice, so I don’t think I’ll do that this time, but it’s a great idea!

What is this about? I was looking at the completed listings for ugly Christmas sweaters and noticed that a Canadian seller has “1,000s” of ugly Christmas sweaters. (They’re actually ugly Christmas sweatshirts, but they are listed as vintage. Hmmmm.) They are sold in lots of 50. Very cool….and very creative. I’m guessing eBay sellers are buying these to resell!

What have you sold in lots? I’d love to know!

I also wanted to remind people to be on the lookout for abalone shells. Found this shell in the Danni App Facebook group. (And as far as I can tell, it is legal to sell abalone shells. Some people have asked about this.) This particular shell sold for…

Hey, check it out! A while back, I went to a yard sale featuring golf items. It was the last day of the sale, and I purchased a huge lot of old golf balls for $10. The pile was huge! They were a bit dirty, so I tried to wash them. Well, the dirt didn’t come off.
I decided to divide the golf balls into piles that would fit into medium flat rate boxes. I’ve only listed one box so far, and that box sold pretty quickly. It sold for….
