    Another thrift-store find. They must have known what it was, for they threw a $4 sticker on it. Store-wide half-off sale saw me get it for $2, though.

    Pretty little piece with the black back board I made.

      I don't yet have a bulb for that, I'm afraid. At this rate, though, I really should as I have so many pieces from thrift stores. I used to only occasionally see these, now they're suddenly in every thrift store here (not this exact piece, but Depression Glass in general).

      Please pour me A LEMONADE. Wouldn't that be so nice in this pitcher!
    5. SpiritBear, 4 years ago
      TallCakes, thank you. I am hoping that you might also know the pattern of this bowl I dug up?

      PostCardCollector, sadly it would hold only one glass of lemonade.

      That is a great find. It would be a good buy at $20.

      Very nice find !!!

      Thank you, Courtney and Nutsabotas.

      I looked on eBay, SOLD Listings (never use Current unless there are bids), and saw that it sells for $5. So, I doubled my money. LOL.
    13. fortapache fortapache, 4 years ago
      Don't forget to include shipping in the eBay value.
    14. SpiritBear, 4 years ago
      I did. Every identical piece that was not over-priced (and therefore sold) in the last month came with another piece in the set. With combined shipping and that the two pieces together sold for $10 on average, if I were to sell it in my booth I could put $8 on it. Online, $5.
      Things get broken at my booth, though, due to careless people. For now it will sit in the basement on display.

      I've studied values and how they are affected by locality:
      In California, near a major centre of population, I might get someone to buy it for over $10. In my city, it might not sell for $8.
      Thus is why online auctions are good for determining average value: A country-wide site like e-Bay will be accessible by any collector with an unrestricted, secure internet connection and major credit or debit card or bank account.

      Locality and individual desire will differ from the national average, but, again: It is an average.
      I would give only $4 for it (I also don't collect them). You said $20. You collect them and have a passion for them. To me, they are just pretty pieces of glass that aren't all that old (if people are still alive from the time it was made, it's not terribly old in my opinion). I'll pick it up if I can make a dollar off it.
      Alongside everyone else, our demands for them make up the market and influence the value.
      If everyone were to bid these up, or if all sellers worked together to charge higher prices for them, the value would go up. Typically, though, it doesn't work that way, and it is worth $5 not including standard shipping.

      Some to conclude: Average, national U.S. value is $5, not including shipping. That is what I'd consider collector value.
      Local values vary.
      Insurance value seems to mimic book value. And book value, in my experience, is only best-case scenario-- something rarely seen except in auctions between two+ competing bidders who greatly desire an item.
      Actual value of most collectible items is, on average, half of book-value in most markets. And thus is why I have 0 price-guides, for they are totally inaccurate (and I do not trust things like Antiques Road Show, as they go by book-value). LOL.
