Some Things Are A Value Mystery. Some More Than Others.
Several years back, my brother and I decided to sell some items we had inherited from our Grandfather. It didn't take long to find out it wasn't going to be a piece of cake to figure out the value of most of what he had.
We held on to things that were a part of his memory. But we couldn't keep it all & thought we would run some classified ads to start & sell a few things.
We began by doing some online research to get value ideas. We were able to find a few things on eBay® but other items were coming up dry or they were just not the things that other people listed anywhere.
Part of my grandfathers personality was he firmly lived by the saying "do with or do without". I have the framed Yankee proverb he had hanging on his wall to prove it.
Many people who stopped by his home agreed that it was like stepping back in time.
And there's the story of the antique roll top desk that belonged to our great-grandmother - here goes;
The desk was in great condition & was made beautifully, but apparently there wasn't a place for it anymore in our house. So mom sold it one hot summer day about five years ago at our neighborhood garage sale.
To this day, it still really bothers her that she didn't double check what the value really was before even considering selling it.
The first person who looked at it was very nice and offered a price faster than you could say "S-O-L-D".
You most likely figured out how this story ended. The desk disappeared from our driveway faster than you could say "G-O-N-E". That's what the summer heat ( the temperature by that time was probably right around 95 in the shade) and fast cash can do to your good judgement.
It was something she always regretted. We never found out what the desk was worth. But the buyers quick action should have told her it was more than what she let it go for.
I will not tell you what the selling price was. It's too painful.
