When I spotted this basket tray wrought iron thingy, I thought it looked like Longaberger. I see Longaberger at sales a lot, but it almost always has $20 or $30 prices on it. I always look at the price though, because you just never know. This was priced at $4.00 and included the basket, lid, fabric liner, plastic liner, wooden divider, two smaller dividers, wooden tray and wrought iron tiered holder. I knew it had to be worth more than $4.00, so I picked it up.
When I paid, the lady said, "I never did use that thing." I asked what it was for and she said, "I thought Bagels and stuff". I didn't think that was right and I was glad she hadn't used it. When I got home, I did some research and discovered that is was a Charging Station and Mail Sorter. One had recently sold for $128.00 and there was one currently on ebay with a BIN of $104.00, so I decided to list mine at a BIN of $100.00 just for fun. I thought someone would bid on it and that would be the end of my BIN. I started the auction at 20:30:29 and it sold at my BIN price at 20:34:08. That is less than four minutes! I can't even imagine how the buyer found it that quickly. But, I am glad she did! After shipping (I undercharged a couple bucks because I ended up needing a bigger box that I anticipated), ebay fees, PayPal fees and bank fees - I still cleared about $80.00. Not a bad return on my ten minute stop and four minute sell time!
