This may look like play money, but it is actual (corporate) currency that could be spent at Disney locations. I would guess you could still spend it, but Disney dollars are now rare enough that (depending on condition) they are probably worth more than face value. I got a number of Disney bills on my 2016 Disneyland trip, including some $10 Cinderella bills as shown above. Disney dollars were retired as of May 2016, which makes them quite collectible.

My family got back from California a few days ago, where we spent a week playing at Disneyland, Legoland, and Universal Studios. Our boys are 10 and 7 years old, which is such an awesome age. They both love all of the thrill rides, and we played hard the whole time. But now we’re back in the real world, and I am REALLY struggling to get back in the work groove. Before we left I was getting my listings up consistently, day after day. Now – I’m just not. I really need to get back in the swing of things … starting tomorrow? Ugh. Motivation, discipline, come back!
Anyway, when we were at Disneyland a few people had Oswald ears (instead of Mickey ears). I only had a fuzzy recollection of Oswald, so I did some research. Oswald was actually the first Disney animated cartoon character to feature in their own series. What followed was a messy series of events in which for many years (1928-2006), Universal Studios actually had the rights to Oswald. But he has since returned to Disney. Of course I found all of this very interesting, and took my curiosity to eBay. Check out Oswald completed listings HERE!
Blow molds can be a great flip . . . if you’re willing to deal with all of the hassles that come along with them. The biggest being that they’re so, well, big. What a pain to ship. And making sure that they work, and aren’t cracked in not immediately obvious ways, etc. I will often eyeball them at yard sales (and even currently have a Christmas Mickey Mouse in my garage my boys talked me into keeping this last summer), but I’m not anxious to buy them to flip because it honestly seems like a lot of work. But at some of these prices, maybe I will change my mind! Check out some of the sold links below.
And of course a lot of these are currently out of season so could likely bring in even higher prices at different times of the year. Flipping them locally, while maybe not as profitable, is always an option too.
I want to give a shout out to Money in the Garage because I am pretty sure his talk of flipping blow molds is what originally brought them to my attention several years ago.
I am guessing this game just hit the radar of a bunch of eBayers because it was recently mentioned on an episode of The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon refers to it as the longest board game ever (as in, it can take a couple months to play) AND that he purchased his copy on eBay. So of course I had to look it up. And yes, it’s a thing! A rare one at that. Check out completeds HERE.
I tend to be really picky with the clothing I will buy to resell, and probably stick with NWT items about 75% of the time. Vince, however, is a brand for which I will make an exception. I picked up this very basic looking Vince shirt a couple weeks ago. It shows normal wear from past wash, but still sold pretty quickly for a decent price.
Some Vince items can fetch a really high price! Check out completeds HERE.
Here’s something that will make you stand out in a crowd! Loudmouth golf pants can be fairly easy to spot, and seem to consistently sell well. Check out completeds HERE.
A friend and I were reminiscing recently about the lovely plastic charms from the 80s. (She is a second grade teacher and one of her students came to school wearing her mom’s charms.) She was saying with regret that she no longer had her charms, but I was happy to report that I still have mine! They are one of the only toys I have saved from my own childhood, and I won’t part with them. But, of course I was curious what they might fetch on eBay. Check out completeds HERE! I will certainly be keeping an eye out this summer at yard sales in case anyone else is ready to part with a piece of their childhood.
Aren’t they beautifully ugly?!
I’ve heard about Dam trolls from other eBayers, so they are a BOLO that has been in the back of my mind for years. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago as I continued on my quest to get all of my backlogged inventory listed. I found the two trolls above in a tote filled with plush. As I was photographing them I found the Dam marking on the back of both of their necks. Yay!
These trolls are pretty big, both measure 14″ tall and are jointed. I wasn’t exactly sure what they were worth, so I decided to list them at auction. I started the bidding at $49.95, and they ended up selling for $59 + shipping. Since they had literally been hanging out in a tote for several years (I know!) I was happy with that.
BUT – some can sell for a lot more! Check out completeds HERE.
