After a year or so, we finally got our waterbed sold. I paid about $1800 for it and a couple night stands several years ago. We no longer use that bedroom for anything but storage, though, so there was really no need to keep it. I originally priced the three pieces at $700, but we ended up selling them for far less. The nice young couple who bought it got a heckuva deal, but they were so nice that I didn’t begrudge them the low price. The old saying is that something is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it.
My wife has decided to sell her clothes steamer that she just HAD to have a few years ago and then rarely used. I’m still trying to sell some once-fired Winchester AA 12 gauge hulls and now have them priced at half their value. I got them when Clinton was in office to have a way to keep hunting if he pushed through a really bad gun control bill. However, someone stole the wads and the black powder I had stored with them and, since I never got much shot purchased, so I decided part with them.
Several things we’ve sold, we’ve practically given away. I sold some small items at the antique store this week and didn’t get what I felt they were worth, but still more than I expected. I’m always reminded of the line in the Bible where it says that without the mark of the beast that we will not be able to buy or sell. In MY neck of the woods, it’s pretty much that way already, without worrying about any mark. Maybe those times are closer than we know.
Our funds were running low again, due to school dragging on as long as it has, so the sale was literally a godsend. If I can pass my CDL test Friday, I hope to be employed again in a couple weeks. That should make life a bit easier. © 2014
