What Sold on eBay?

Visit this post and discover a few of the interesting items that sold from my eBay store one fine fall weekend in September.
Frequently, friends and acquaintances often ask me what’s sold on eBay lately and I often receive interesting comments when I do share some of my latest sold items on social media. Therefore, I thought that I would do a review of exactly that – what has sold on eBay recently from my own eBay store. Please come along with me and we will check out a few of the interesting things that I sold one fall weekend in September of 2021.

The items that sold are as varied as the stock is in my eBay store, Treasures By Brenda. However, this weekend the sales included just a few gently used and vintage items and none of my new stock although I do have many new items in store. I have actually heard it said that about 80 percent of the items on eBay are new though I think the platform is best when it helps unite buyers with items that are no longer produced and therefore hard-to-find. I have had the pleasure of reuniting many buyers with beloved items that they had as children or even as adults.

I would like to start by sharing my favorite item but I find myself hard pressed to pick just one so here then are the four fun items that sold arranged in no particular order:

HANDMADE BABY OR LAP QUILT


The colors, the stitching lines and the wavy edges of this handmade lap quilt were absolutely darling and I think made it quite special. If I needed a throw blanket, I might have added it to my collection even though it really featured fabrics that are meant for babies. Someone somewhere put a lot of work into making this lovely piece and now it has gone to a new home where someone new will treasure it.

VINTAGE ORIENTAL DIPPING BOWLS


I am not actually sure what these tiny bowls are for. If you know, I’d love to hear. At two inches, they are too small, I think, to be used for dipping though I have called them dipping bowls. Have you any thoughts on what their original purpose might have been? If you are interested, you can discover some similar oriental dipping bowls on eBay by clicking right here.

MOUSETRAP CHEESE BOARD


This is a novelty gift idea, for sure and one that is sure to surprise guests at your next cocktail party. It is a very realistic Acme mouse trap that is oversized so that you can use it as a cheese or small charcuterie board and we know those boards are very trendy right now. I thought of gifting this item to a family member who once had quite a struggle at home with mice. I’m sure she would have responded with a roll of her eyes and exclaimed, “Oh, Brenda!” You can find your own Acme cheese board here on eBay.

TREMAR CORNISH CHIMNEY SWEEP FIGURINE


Finally, I sold was a little vintage Cornish art pottery chimney sweep or cleaner by Tremar. The company Tremar was located in and named after a village in eastern Cornwall that started producing pottery in the early 1960s. They made pieces that were popular with tourists and that included items like animals, people, vehicles and buildings. Some 'sets' were created to encourage buyers to collect multiple pieces, a technique we know today but was used less often in the middle of the century. The Tremar pottery company closed its doors in the 1980s. You can see all of the Tremar Pottery pieces on eBay by clicking here.

While these items are no longer available in my store, I do have a large stock of interesting and unusual items in my shop. Do drop in!  You can visit my store, Treasures By Brenda, on eBay by clicking here!

Congratulations on your sales and your successful eBay store!

  2. Brenda, congratulations on your recent sales on eBay. I've followed your store for some time and always enjoy seeing the interesting items you find. I never heard of a mousetrap cheese board - how clever. :)

  4. I love shopping at Ebay! I've found out of print books that I never would have been able to find otherwise, as well as old vinyl records. Of course, I also occasionally buy "hard to find" currently sought after items that children want for Christmas. I think it was a lot of fun to look at the unique items you recently sold. Clearly, everyday is Christmas at Treasures by Brenda on Ebay.

    My family gathered around my laptop this afternoon to look at those little cups in your picture. Our son said they look like Eastern tea cups to him!

    1. Thanks for the input about the little bowls. They seemed almost too small to be for oriental tea but maybe they weren't!

  5. Oh I lke all the items that you have sold lately. The small bowls could be for warm Saki. When my son and his wife take us out for Sushi, we always have some little ceramic bowls and they fill them up with Saki which is drunk warm, unlike the westerners or Europeans who like wine cool. Nice collections you have there Brenda, I will have to look further.....

  6. LMAO at the mousetrap cutting board - that's funny! What a great hostess gift - but you'd have to know the person well or they may well think you're implying her house has mice! hahaha. I love that, that's a great funky gift to handout. By the way, the quilts are gorgeous.
