I thought I would share some things that should be on your BOLO (be on the look out for) List. Arabia Finland pottery sells pretty well. I spotted this little beauty at a garage sale for $1. When I bought it, I had no idea it was worth anything..but I saw that it was from Finland and figured that for a $1 I would take a chance. And if it wasn’t worth anything, I’d keep it for myself. I really liked the design.
This pitcher I sold at auction for $46.01 plus $20 shipping.
Then earlier this year, my hubby stopped at a Goodwill on the way home from work and picked up this beauty:
This walrus was $1.99. If you saw it, you’d probably pass it up. It is handmade and not very attractive. It had some issues..one of the eyes wasn’t as nice as the other, but I guess that didn’t matter. I saw these go for $140-$150. So this one I put up for a BIN (buy it now). My asking price was $199 and I received and accepted a best offer of $160 with free shipping. (Cost me $11 to ship.) Not a bad return.
There are certainly other Arabia Finland designs. It’s always a good idea to check the completeds on Ebay to see what’s popular and what’s not.
I don’t know much about pottery, but know that these do pretty well.
Are there any pottery designs that do well for you? Do share!
