    Thank you it is, I hope you are well too! Hmmm… this is a tough question.
    Well, if they were mine & I was comfortable selling on Craigslist I’d be
    inclined to list the full set on there first for a price a bit higher than
    I want expecting a buyer to counter offer. I’d do CL 1st b/c it’s free & I
    don’t have to monkey around w/ shipping all those suitcases & I hate to
    bust up a set. No offers on CL? Relist lower. Then if not, I’d go full set
    eBay, no offer? then just smaller bags eBay.Good luck!

    I always wondered what they meant when they described their jewelry as demi
    parure on Ebay. Now I know! Thanks for sharing your knowledge. Love the
    intro style to your videos also. Very classy.

    I am just loving your videos! Your “history lessons” are so fascinating. I
    mean, I never would have guessed that some pieces of costume jewelry are
    actually valuable. I won’t pass up those fancy baubles at the counter ever
    again without taking a second look. Thanks so much for sharing your wisdom!

    Yes do check them out you never know what treasure could be in there! When
    I buy a lot of vintage costume jewelry, I pull out the pieces that have
    significant wear on the backside, the ones w/ little to now resale value, &
    those I give to my teenage niece. She love them and when she wears it the
    wear doesn’t really show b/c it’s not face front. Thanks for watching!!

    HI MrHD, thanks for watching & the kind compliments. The sewing machine is
    by Janome, which is a good Japanese brand still in business. According to
    info I found on the internet, the New Home XR-VII model was a higher end,
    made in Japan bet. 1960-1970’s. That model is not made today. In 1979, that
    model retailed for $900!

    Hey Brent!! Thanks for watching. As long as you: pay fairly low price, the
    piece has little to no visable wear to the eye, the piece is
    bold/gaudy/sparkly, is signed other than Avon, in general, I find it to
    sell on eBay for $25+, more often $30-$50. Not hard & fast rule, but easy
    beginner tips that most often pan out in profit. 🙂
