    Local GW finally missed something

    The GW here usually looks everything up on ebay and prices it about 30 to 60% of sold prices regardless of condition. I still pick up stuff there a lot if I can make 3 or 4 times my $ but never score anything great. Anyway someone slipped and put this out on the household shelf for $5.99.
    1870's Alfred Meakin pitcher.

    For comparison they have a small McCoy pitcher sitting on the shelf now with two chips and cracks at each end of the handle and have it priced at $7.99.

    The Karl Neumann painting (bad photo) I picked up for the same price but I am keeping it for our future home in Florida.

    I'd be happy if my Goodwill priced things at 30-60% of sold prices. Here they price at 100-150% of the highest asking price. I still buy a good bit of stuff there but it's things that slip through the cracks.

    The Gravitator Electroscope, divining rods, random rocks that look neat that are actually treasure maps, meditation and a charming imagination.

    I don't like to deal with glassware, pottery, ceramics, much either. I sold this for a quick hundred.

    I found 10 pieces of various Federal and Rosemary depression glass at GW yesterday for a grand total of $15.19. Last week I found 4 pieces of pink depression glass made in Mexico for $4. Found a Pfaltzgraff lamp in like new condition a week ago also for $9, cheapest of that pattern used online is over $100. I miss that they no longer carry vintage Pyrex, it was a cheap source of it for my wife's collection but they wised up and sell it all online.

    Are you joking? They pull pyrex like gold and silver now?

    Literally only the crumbs left for the lowly in-store peasants. That store, ugh.
