    Sometimes you just never can tell.................

    I admit it, at this rate I would never get rich, but I had 50 cents invested in these over two weekend's worth of lawn sales. They sold on feebay in about 65 mins after listing.

    Actually, about 3 weeks ago I had a pair of Masonic lapel pins sell in about half the time as this. I must be very lucky. I have been trying to list stuff such as this at reasonable prices, so I do think that helps. It seems like my 50 cent to $2 buys on lawn sales are my quickest, best and most profitable sells. Like I said, just goes to show you never can tell.

    Good stuff! My quickest sale to date was about 20 mins. I listed a small (and early) coin silver cup for an $80 BIN. (Paid $5 at auction) The person who used BIN had it relisted immediately for $200. It took awhile but I think it sold.. haha

    I remember my grandfather had one of those. He would mix up the soap with hot water. That was Quick!

    You want to hear a wild coincidence, Apush? I was going through a trunk up in my Grandparent's attic after buying the mugs, and there in what I thought was my Uncle Dick's stuff was my Grandfather's shaving mug, one of those same Old Spice collector types that I think I had bought him as a kid. I remember him having a more vintage one for yrs. I believe he used that sort of shaving soap and brush til the day he passed. It brought a meloncholy smile to my face when I found it. Grandparents are the best and gave us our best memories.
