Auctions are Closed...The Highs, the Lows...


Hello Barney Figures!  Thank you for netting me a $27.00 profit.  I love you, you love me, we're a happy family!  Would love to send a great big hug and a kiss from me to you!

A terrible flop...because of a terrible title...was I asleep when I wrote it?  Actually yes, I think I was.  Did I mention sweet streets and I have a love hate relationship?  Sweet streets, goodbye...I'm into Barney right now...will someone please remind me to never buy sweet streets again?

  1. Oh man. I just bought 25 Sweet Streets houses/buildings and spent three hours taking pictures of them last night when I read this post. LOL. I got a steal on them ($1-$3 per item) and some of them I'm keeping for my 3 year old so I'm just aiming to recoup what I spent + a little extra. I think that's doable. I have a question for you though. in researching my items I've run across a lot of weird auctions on ebay that are WAAAY overpriced. They never seem to sell, but I was just wondering what was going on? See an example here: http://cgi.ebay.com/Fisher-Price-Sweet-Street-Victorian-Stable-People-/260814988466?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cb9c8e4b2. Do you know what the deal is with this? Obviously this is *not* worth $112. Thanks!

  2. I'm sure you will do better with yours than I did with mine! It's just hit or miss I have found. About those weird overpriced auctions, I have been wondering that myself lately. And I have NO CLUE what they are all about, of course they never sell! Does anyone else out there know?

  7. I saw The Host being offered for $100 which I thought was weird since copies of it weren't even being sold for 99 cents!

  8. Ugg..I had that happen with an auction this week. Something that usually would do great..was kinda a flop (I still made money, but should have been double). Hopefully better times are on their way. Congrats on the Barney..I love seeing the little junk toys you sell. I usually pass those up, but have been paying more attention to them. TFS-used to be Thanks for Sharing, now it's Thanks for Snitching ;)

  11. Is it smart to wait to sell train stuff (thomas trackmaster 22 piece for 25cents) until Christmas? I didn't know what it was when I bought the bag. I took a chance for a quarter. Thanks for inspiring me to get out of bed this morning to find two bumbo seats and this trackmaster set! I saw you had trackmaster sold last week. Did you do okay? Thanks
