Ebay buyers gone crazy

Hi All

Yes I now believe ebay buyers have gone crazy, as you know I am sorting stuff out for my dad, its all coming from my mums vast collection of stuff. I thought I knew a bit about what sells but I am so amazed at what is selling and the prices they are achieving,
I sold a Kevin talking doll form the Home Alone film for 65.00!! and some board games from the 70's went for crazy prizes, this week I have Disney dolls form the films and they are flying and the Spice girls are reaching high prices, I have the last lot to do this weekend, plates and I mean lots of plates, there is the full collection of fairy plates and more of the same, about 30 all together, so this weekend its taking photos and then putting them out on ebay. sometimes I think I should just find stuff to sell on ebay and forget my minis.

And talking of minis, I have managed to finish the wardrobe and I am really pleased how it came out, I also manged to get some more done to the beach shop, I have started filling up the large shelf I have made, this will contain the soft furnishing and home decor items, maybe next week I can get back to doing my minis, hope so I do not like this popping in and out to do a bit, I like to get lost in my minis and sit in my own crazy world.

here are the photos

I got some time for me

Hi All

Yes I managed to get some time for me, in between answering questions on ebay!! some people ask the most stupidest questions, I was selling my dads tv stand, it had damage to the base, where the dog had chewed it, so I took 2 photos, 1 showing the unit and the other showing the damage, I then got a question, could i tell them where the damage is and would it be possible to take a photograph of it!! I was polite and said to check out the photo's .

Anyway I came here to talk mini's not moan, 

After I had finished my painted furniture I wondered if I could do any more, so I have been checking out pinterest for painted furniture and down loaded some I thought I would like to try .
I then looked in my stash and found some furniture to try it out on, I did not have the furniture that they had used, so I am using what I think will look ok.

The hardest bit is mixing the paint to try to get the colour paint they used as a background, I managed to get the colours as near as I can.

I have one bit nearly done the others are waiting, thought I would show you what I have done so far
