Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

This is my vintage video #6 in a series that I have done at my youtube channel: youtube.com/user/librariansteph/videos. It is basically about vintage cookbooks but I also have a part in the beginning where I show parts of my other eBay collections. You can skip over that part if you like!

Better Homes and Gardens

I mention the famous cookbooks like this Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. This one has the non-diagonal plaid where the later ones have the diagonal pattern.

my vintage cookbook collection for eBay

Most of these are available in my eBay store at everythingvintagesteph.com but they do sell rather quickly! I find many at local estate auctions but also in thrift stores. My prices range from 10.00 to 20.00. Thanks for reading and I hope you learned something!

Selling vintage toys on eBay

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

I recently made a video (with some special guests) about selling vintage toys on eBay. I didn’t have very many toys to show because they are hard to find and are not really my specialty. I do talk about some vintage games, Sesame Street characters, and a silly jumping poodle. Below is the the video that shows how the jumping poodle works. I used this video on my eBay listing as well.

It really doesn’t work very well! Another tip I forgot to mention is that when I find vintage games, sometimes the pieces are not all present or the boxes or parts of the game are destroyed. I then take the parts and sell them separately. Sometimes people are just looking for the parts to a certain game! I recently sold some monopoly tokens that way.

Selling and buying vintage clothing on eBay

Friday, November 20th, 2015

Vintage clothing can be very fascinating. Each decade is very different. I have tried to show a few pieces from various decades — mainly the 60s, 70s, and 80s in the following video. Hope you learn a little something!

Visit me at everythingvintagesteph.com. Or on youtube at: youtube.com/user/librariansteph/videos. Thanks for watching!

Selling vintage books on eBay. Video time!

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

This is the second video in my vintage video series. This one is about vintage books. I sell a lot of vintage books on eBay that I mainly source at local estate auctions. I also find books at thrift stores and yard sales, although the estate auctions are the best since I can usually buy a whole box at a time!

Sometimes I sell my vintage books in sets rather than one at a time. Children’s books are my favorite. Some great sets to look for are The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Dr. Seuss, Elf books from Rand McNally, and Disney books.

Vintage school books are also great. So full of interesting facts — some still up to date and some very much NOT!
