I have a very large wrought iron chandelier that was converted from gas to electricity unfortunately I can not hang it in my home because we have low ceilings and the the rafters will not hold the weight.  I would like to know more about it and possibly sell it, please contact me if you have any knowledge about old wrought iron chandeliers!

Amen Tom - dirty is dirty now matter who/where/when it occurs!

I have signs up all over every estate sale I do they read "Thou Shalt NOT steal" Changing tags is STEALING!

Same premis here - it's just Stealing/Theft!

Regarding "bidding tactics":

I went to an auction and saw a dealer stuff an old doll under some bedsheets in a box. When distracted I removed the doll and put it several tables over.

When the bidding started I bid her up to $9.00 and then dropped out.

You should've seen the look on her face after she dug through the box and couldn't find her doll.

lundy, $5-10 each quite new just used lamps and small and plain other than the decal on the glass

Think we used to retail these lamps for $69 never carried this plain of a lamp sorry

Oh - it is so cute and a GREAT buy! congrats!
Comment by Beth Liles on October 24, 2011 at 4:07am

I have often wondered about those types of tactics.  Perhaps I'm pessimistic, but I think I'd be more surprised if things like that didn't happen.   Anyway, all is well on this item.   It was on eBay and no one ever bid against me, so I got it for $25.   I think it's cute, so I'm happy with it.   Thanks again for your advice and information!

Comment by Antiques in Bethania on October 23, 2011 at 10:26pm

Just be cautious - I could not believe my ears when walking into a junk store where there were a bunch of men talking about an item that was on sale on the internet, and one guy - who obviously it belonged too  said - I'm not worried because I have a string of people to boost up the price! Now I have seen these guys at auctions but they didn't recognize me and I have always suspected their tactics.


 Just don't get caught in a final bidding frenzy and set your limit. The seller may come back to you and offer it to you.

Thank you very much for the info. I really appreciate it
Ill post a photo if I win the auction. Currently I'm the only bidder at $25
