    Another fun find that surprised me.

    It's a Herend Guinea fowl or "turkey bird" figurine. Measures about 6" tall. I had never heard of Herend before but I picked it up because it looked so different from all the other figurines on the shelf. Click image for larger version.

    Nice. I am still surprised by what some finds sell for.

    Surprised me too. I listed it for BIN $225 or best offer. I'll have to lower it if it doesn't get any interest. I may have started to high after seeing the sold listing.

    You can always lower it, but you can't ask for more if you sell it too low. I start higher, and then lower it if need be. If you don't need the money right now, let it sit. You just need the right person to want it at that price.

    Herend is awesome! I bought an elephant on a circus ball at Goodwill back in the Spring. Paid 99 cents! Just like you, it caught my eye and I knew it was high quality. As was mentioned, let it sit and get a good price. I would not take anything below $150. You have the "colored scales" as I refer to them and it should do well.
