We didn’t get a chance to go thrifting this past weekend as we planned, however we did spend some time in Reno for Hot August Nights. Every year in August car owners are thrilled to show off their cars. They’d never had so many people “oohing and aahing” over their “works of art”. Some go to share their car and others go to sell their car at the swap meet or auctions.
In this business, just like finding all those unique cars, sometimes you come across the one really special unique item and sometimes you get a whole lot of pieces of it. Take this passenger train set at Grumpy Treasures Thrift & Consignment for instance. Instead of selling off the passenger set, extra tracks, post car, stellput, etc. as a lot, we found it worked out better for our buyers to sell off this entire lot separate. We’ve not only helped out the dedicated train hobbyist replace pieces or add to his collection, but we’ve given 50 reasons or more to play for a young one new to the track laying hobby.
Keep in mind, you don’t always have to list things one by one as we did even though that might cater to the highly specific hobbyist. Often times we have very interested buyers who will still find what they’re looking for whether it’s just one piece or in a lot with the added bonus of getting things they didn’t know they wanted until they got it in their hands. So don’t be discouraged if you have items like this one laying around and are worried about parting it out or selling off in a lot. We like to consider this part of eBay’s appeal, it’s the thrill of the game and at Grumpy Treasures Thrift & Consignment we definitely cater to hobbyists of all kinds.
Not to toot our own horn or anything.
