Score Board

Welcome to the “Score Board”!  The “Score Board” is a place where you can tell the world about your recent “scores”!  I hope that it will become an educational resource for eBay sellers.   Learn about what sells by checking the “Score Board” on a regular basis!


The more “scores” submitted, the better!  Here’s how it works:


1.  Enter your name, email, and website address (if you have one) below.


2. Send me a brief description of your recent “score” along with a picture of the item you sold.


3. Be sure to mention your userid and/or store name so that people can check out your other goodies. (Free advertising.  Yay!)


4. If possible, send me a link to the item.


Hope to hear from you soon!

      Careful with shipping of perfumes. ALL perfumes have to ship via ground shipping (first class or parcel select) due to flammability. They CANNOT be shipped internationally.

    I keep an eye on Pyrex sales and go to EBay’s sold listings all the time and then sort by highest price sold. I was in an antique store by me and saw a piece of Pyrex that rang a bell. I bought it for $49 and sold it for $295.00!

      Wow! I’ve never had much luck with Pyrex. I should give it a second look!

      • Kim Dermit says:

        I think that antique stores are a good spot to look because a lot of those sellers put items in there and then forget about them. If they’re not keeping current pricing with how high the prices are going online, you can get a great deal like I did!

    • Gladys Tineo says:

      I love these! I have tons of Pyrex items so I’m thinking of selling some of those on Ebay as well.

      Wish me luck!! 🙂

    Both of these shirts were picked up at different Goodwills for $1.29. The ’80s blue Nike was BIN at $74.99. The Santa Monica Track Club was listed at $149, but I took an offer of $100 since it was from the same buyer. These days are rare but encouraging when they happen. I always give 10% to a charity relevant to the item, so it’s a “win,win,win.” Here are the links:

      How did you know these worth so much? I would have passed them over.

      • funguyfinds says:

        There is no T-shirt price guide. Its a formula of cultural relevance, rarity and function. These shirts are over 30 years old and comes with the stench of authenticity…which, to a certain demographic, is a status symbol. The buyer remarked that he has been looking for the Nike shirt for over 5 years (possibly nostalgia). I overpaid once for a 1984 Olympic shirt because it reminded me of my grandfather and it was in a size that I can wear. I’m a graphic designer by trade and can spot a valuable shirt in the same way that someone can discern amber and bakelite. Although I have struck out on overproduced reprints before. You always continue to learn and maybe one day I will have an interest in knives and flatware.

      • ebaylife says:

        Thanks for the info! Did you find any in the completed listings or are these that rare?

      • funguyfinds says:

        None on completed listings so it was all a calculated hunch 🙂 It also sold overnight so part of me thinks I should have priced it higher. Then again its part of the wonders of eBay. The right buyer at the right time for the right price.

    I bought this “Sunset Gallery” Christmas Stocking Crewel Kit at a church sale (fill a bag for $5 – so this probably cost me .50). I should have known something was up when it got a bid about 30 minutes after I listed it! It sold for $81!!

    I was at a sale a couple of months ago and the guy wanted $20 for the cooler and $10 for the jug. I asked if he’d take $20 for both and he did! I listed them on ebay and got $102.50 for them! I had heard about vintage Coleman coolers selling from “Dude” at “Money in the Garage” It’s so nice to read these different blogs and learn what sells! I just found yours today! Thank you! ~~Pam

    Last April I grabbed a nice pair of Justin Chippewa boots at an estate sale for $15. They were muddy, but after some cleanup and polish, they were gorgeous and in great condition. Sold them for $102.

    I was walking around The Dollar Tree the other day, and saw several packages of brown paper lunch bags (40 per package). Curiosity got to me and I looked up completed listings for paper lunch bags. They were selling, not very well, but they were selling. I threw a pile of the packages on the ground in a pile and snapped a pic. When I got home I quickly whipped out a listing of 200 bags for $22.00 BIN free shipping. I listed 10 lots. Next day a woman hit my PayPal with 220.00, thats right she bought all 10 lots. I was out 50 dollars plus shipping and fees. I made over 100 dollars, best part is…..$0.00 dollars out ofpocket.
