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.

Jim Henson’s Bean Bunny is on my BOLO Bucket List.

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!
Below you will find a few of my favorite flips from the last couple weeks. As always, it’s a mix of clothes, plush, toys and other misc. Some were quick flips, and others took a long time to sell.
J. Crew is a brand I keep an eye out for, it can often be a good flip for me.
Coats are still selling fairly well for me.
I couldn’t believe it when I pulled this guy out of a tote of long-ago purchased inventory! Wheezy is fairly rare, and was a quick flip.
I love finding Land Before Time plush!
And a bunch of other random items too:
I love finding Thomas Duplo items!
How are your sales looking in the new year? Any favorite flips? Please share!
I am a mama of two boys, so girls toys are pretty foreign to me. A couple months ago I picked up what I believe to be a bag of Polly Pocket toys. I’ve let them sit for too long because I wasn’t sure what exactly to do with them. A few days ago I split them into different lots, one consists of The Little Mermaid characters, one consists of Sleeping Beauty characters, and the rest is a random mix of left-overs. I did a bunch of researching, and found a couple listings of similar Polly Pockets, but not as many as I was expecting. So my question is – are Polly Pockets ever faked? Is there a knock-off brand I might purchase without realizing it isn’t the real deal? Is this something I should worry about?
Thanks for your insight – it is much appreciated!
I missed last week, so here are some of my favorite sales from the past two weeks.
Isn’t this bear random? The only reason it even caught my eye is that it was still NWT. I looked it up, and was surprised to find that there were none currently listed, and the couple that had been listed recently both sold.
A new Goodwill opened across town recently, and I had just a few minutes between my boys’ basketball games one Saturday last month, so we stopped in quickly. We found a bunch of NWT Disney Store plush that had been purchased in Japan (the prices were listed in yen). The three characters below are all connected.
Clothes are never my favorite, but a few days ago my phone briefly went crazy. Someone purchased all four of the below items all at once. I wish that happened more often!
NWT Black Gap Skinny Jeans
NWOT Cabi Linen Pants
NWT Ann Taylor Pants
Ann Taylor Skirt
Paid: $8 @ VV, Sold: $91.80
I’m still selling costumes every month.
I had this set of Sesame Street books listed for several months. I ended the listing, did “sell as similar” adding Best Offer, and they sold a few days later at full price. I actually have another identical set in my office I now need to get listed.
Same with this one. It had been listed for months, I ended the listing and used “sell similar” and added Best Offer. It sold the next day for full price.
I paid more for this blanket that I generally prefer (and thought about leaving it until an upcoming 50% off day), but decided after looking at completeds that it looked like a good bet. And it was. (Little Miracles is a Costco brand, and one of my favorites to resell.)
This horse was stuffed in a bag with several other plush. I could see the Folkmanis tag, but other than that I could just see black, I couldn’t even tell what it was. Turned out to be a good gamble.
If you’ve had a fun recent sale you would like to share, I would love to hear about it!
It has been a long time since I’ve shared some of the items I have sold. Plush is still my favorite, of course. Here are a few of my recent-ish plush sales:
My second grader is going through a huge Roald Dahl phase right now (reading a bunch of Dahl’s books and several biographies on Dahl), and this morning at breakfast he was trying to list as many Roald Dahl books as he could remember off the top of his head. He mentioned Gremlins, and asked if it was one I had read as a kid. Uhhhh, Gremlins? I’ve heard of the movie of course, but never a Roald Dahl book with that title. So, I looked it up, and whaddyaknow, he knew exactly what he was talking about. Not only is there a Roald Dahl book with that title, it can be worth quite a bit of money! The selling amount of course varies depending on edition. Check out eBay completeds and current listings on Amazon. Definitely going on my BOLO list!
