Ack! It is a struggle. I am still organizing and selling, trying to make a dent in the
crap fine collectables I have collected over the years. I like to sell local on the Facebook site versus eBay which involves packing and mailing.
I don’t know that I am making a dent yet. Far Guy says “Well, more stuff is going out than is coming back in.”
I have quite a mess upstairs…I have a spot to take photos and then local stuff, eBay stuff and rummage sale stuff and donate stuff. I hope no one is coming to visit that needs a bed for awhile. One good thing about upstairs as I can leave it a mess and come downstairs!
I am learning as I am going along. Many things need to be researched. This is a Puzzle Peg from 1922. I have to re photograph before I put it on eBay. I will put all the pegs in the holes.
Did you know that bingo was originally called “Beano” and then someone called out Bingo one time and that was all it took and Bingo was born?
WELL. How about the game of RIGHT. Was it some ones miserable failure? If so I have ten of the cards.
12 ways to make RIGHT. The cards were hand stamped with numbers. Some numbers overlapped and appear in two rows like R 17 and I 17. I wonder if that made it more difficult? The cards are made out of some kind of pressed wood/fiber. I have had them a long time…20 to 25 years and I cannot recall exactly where I purchased them. For awhile I was fascinated by really old games and I guess this one qualified. I have had no luck finding any like it on the web. I know I am not the only one out there with these cards. Then again maybe I am and I am filthy rich and don’t know it yet..these cards could be priceless. Ya sure.
The perfectionist in me wants to know more info about them before I put them up for sale. Who made them and what year? And why? It frustrates me that I cannot find any information…but maybe one of my readers have seen these before..maybe.
