A Value-Village opened up next door to a grocery store that I frequent. While I was just browsing in there killing some time I came across a record player. It was absolutely identical to one that my family had as a kid. I can’t remember the name, but it is kind of a bizarre looking thing. Anyhow, after my daydreaming and flashbacks I left. I considered buying it, but since it was $20 and would more than likely just sit in a box in my basement I thought I would pass. I thought that was it.
I was wrong.
I was just crusing through e-bay and thought “ah, what the heck. Lets see if that was worth any cash”. Well, it took me a bit to find one but I did. It was on the verge of going for $125 US or something like that.
Needless to say, I bought the sucka for $20CDN and its going up on ebay when I get home from work. As long as I get my money back, I will be a happy camper.
I just thought I would share with you a little piece of my otherwise pointless existance.
You do know that the prices things sold for on ebay don’t always happen. People bid on their own things. Or people are no longer interested in the item or only one person in the world wanted it etc. Happened to me when I did what you are doing…be interesting to see what happens.
PS: A lot depends on feedback, those with a lot of feedback get higher prices.
