    You nailed it! Thank you!

    I've been a Antique Dealer before ( not jewelry in Lighting ) but I see in these lots there's a couple of higher value/desirable items. Then I see gold and silver, pearls, rhinestones for added bling and visual appeal. If you look closely there is a certain formula used by successful sellers. I love costume jewelry esp estate pieces. I have so many diamond pieces my Husband has bought me every finger is covered ( I love Liberace ) haha but I wear it with junk jewelry too. Its amazing I never got into wholesale/retail of jewelry tbh. I just subscribed xx

  • Vee Sexton - January 10, 2018 reply

    the good thing for a seller is that the buyer may buy the whole lot just for one thing. Like the Poodle Ring!!! haha 😉

  • Karen Leabo - January 10, 2018 reply

    Thanks for doing this so I don't have to! Yes, Hobe is a very good brand.

    Margaret do you live in Austin, TX? I miss Austin so much. I used to work for Dell and I would go the the Goodwill Outlet back in the good ole days and buy Laptops and Desktop in lots and tear them apart and sell the parts when I first started on eBay. I miss those $80.00 to $100.00 Laptop Keyboard Auctions. Those days are LONG GONE! :_(.. .

  • Gen'kalovesmakeup - January 10, 2018 reply

    In the days when I used to buy jars galore before the price sky rocketed what I did with the unwanted remaining stuff out of jars was re-jar it and yard sale $5 a jar post on local site of the yard sale and that I have crafter jars and mystery jars people would show up one hour before yard sale start time and would fight over the jars jerry springer style lol ok maybe not that bad but my "undesirables" sold quick in three hours I would be done with the whole yard sale.

  • Judi Leavenworth - January 10, 2018 reply

    thank you Margaret. I hope you can give us an update once you get your lots assembled and maybe what they sold for.

  • Ruthie Powell - January 10, 2018 reply

    Also I have started selling group lots of 50 earrings (clip, stud, dangle etc), key rings, mens jewellery, kids jewellery, broken watches and brooches etc. They sell really well for me at auction x

  • Ruthie Powell - January 10, 2018 reply

    I will often buy junk jewellery lots on Ebay. Like you, with your jars, I have to spot a few bits that I think I can sell before I bid. I would say that in about 50% of them I have found gold and nearly 100% have a little (or a lot) of silver. It's all part of the excitement as you never know what you will find until you get your package!

  • Penny Pinching Mom - January 10, 2018 reply

    Those are foreign prices converted to US currency. You can tell by the Italics. Other countries view things differently than we do.

  • Jacqui Wilmot - January 10, 2018 reply

    Really fascinating to follow your research Margaret. Something else I do is pull up 'Highest Price' in the Sold listings, just to find out why??!! Enjoyed it, thanks.

  • Arlene Mchugh - January 10, 2018 reply

    Thank you. This was so helpful and inspiring. I probably have about 75 pounds of jewelry collected over the years just to sell.

  • Karen Petrasovits - January 10, 2018 reply

    I have bought 5 or 6 jewelry lots on ebay to sell. I did not do any auctions. I used the buy it now for all of them. Also, the one seller who got the huge prices was from Canada and I do not believe they were broken/craft lots. I think they were just vintage jewelry lots. Very interesting data.
