I love beautiful serving dishes, whether vintage or modern and am always attracted to them when I am at estate sales, thrift shops or auctions. When my family comes for dinner at Grandma Helens house there is no plastic. All food is served in glass dishes. They say sell what you love and that is what I have chosen to do, sell beautiful glassware. It has been a wonderful adventure learning about glassware, whether depression, blenko or art glass. I started out with one book I now have many more. I am becoming more knowledgeable everyday about glassware, which I believe benefits my customers. Whether I send out a vase, candle holder or beautiful serving bowl, it is my wish that when the person receives it they are truly happy with the product.
I purchase my merchandise at estates sales and auctions. I inspect all items and wash them and if there are any defects will always list such in my auctions. Usually when I buy something to resell it is because I like it, so I am assuming there is someone else out there that will enjoy owning the product.
Are you looking for Blenko, Haviland, Heisey, Fostoria, Cambridge, Haeger, Henn, Mikasa, McCoy, Noritake, Lancaster, Lefton, Lenox, Nippon, Westmoreland, Tiara or Depression Glass. I have these and more.
I sell on ebid.net to earn extra money to take my six granddaughters on adventures with me and because I find it interesting and have met many wonderful people selling online.
The first glassware I packed scared the wits out of me. I have thoroughly researched packaging of fragile items, and have put that knowledge into use to make sure anything I ship arrives in perfect shape to the buyer.
I ship within five days of a cleared payment. I usually am able to ship the next day after a cleared payment is received unless it is a weekend day, then shipment is on the Monday following the weekend. I prefer to ship fragile items via UPS because I believe it is cost effective, as well as the safest way to ship fragile items. Also UPS automatically insures all items up to $100.00, so I believe this adds additional protection for seller and buyer. I am flexible on shipping methods if buyer prefers another method or cannot receive UPS in their area. If someone lives within 60 miles of Chicago I will deliver locally, at a safe place such as a restaurant.
