A few notes on the past sale prices that have been removed.

  • Some of the past sale result prices found in the past sales archives are going on 25 years old and may not be relevant in today's market. Many of the specific antiques & collectibles that we deal in have fallen in value. In a few instances values have risen. If you find the thing you have and there is no price listed with the ad, you can try asking what I think. How I respond will depend on how you ask.

  • Prices for antiques fluctuate over time, and contrary to popular belief it is not alwaysIdeal Child Size Toy Treadle Sewing Machine up. Many of the specific categories we use to deal in are selling for half or less of what they use to bring in the hey-day. The list is long, from toasters and eggbeaters, many antique tools, pencil sharpeners, sewing machines, surveying instruments and more. The reasons for the drops in value are varied and complex. It is not just because of the internet, or eBay, or the economy. It is all those reasons and others combined. A perfect storm of sorts.

  • Use the values you see with caution and seek confirmation elsewhere. Double check them elsewhere. I will not be responsible for any perceived or real loss you may incur using the information found on this website. If you sell that thing you were looking up for far more than you thought it was worth because of what you find here, and feel grateful, send my share / % or commission to through Paypal or send me a small donation to continue this work.
