I often trawl the old woodworking tools and am always struck by the amount of knackered, rusty old tat for which people ask ridiculously high prices, on the basis that they are "vintage". Vintage being a greatly misused word in eBay listings.
bumpkin, thank goodness for grand daughters school's common sense. I've always thought 'Urggghh' when seeing toilet roll centres being reused in craft projects. I shudder to think about the possible health consequences.
Personally I think you can sell pretty much anything all kinds of stuff go around. My friend sold his grandfathers battered tools, turns out one of them had a signature of the German tool maker who made it by hand that was a loooot of money than he originally priced.
Another ad was that someone sold old used lamps and I know a girl who just cant wait for an add like that she redesigns and remodels the lamps and wooden furniture.
And the funniest one someone was selling chandelier and a guy I know had the same one at his moms house, she was always complaining about the missing glass. And a friend asked the seller to sell him a glass (one) he said his price and the next morning the chandelier had one glass less :-))))
