Not in Brooklyn -- lol. I've been at yard sales when someone was asking 25 cents for something and the prospective purchaser offered a dime. On the other hand, depending on the neighborhood, finds can be dirt cheap because sellers know that most buyers won't pay a lot.

Would a marked Rembrandt sell for more?

I guess I was on the beam even before asking. I had figured $25 each, but wanted a  second opinion. Thanks.

Often the actual fixture (bulb part) makes these more valuable. these look like older lamps with newer shades. i'd include the shade but display with out them so buyers can see the fixture part.

 if these are unsigned i'd say $25 easily in a Semi-rural Pa or Ohio area sale or flea market.

good luck on your sale. wish i could come!

I can't tell you what to charge in your area, but customers in our area buy brass floor (and table) lamps all the time....even though brass is not in favor anymore for decor....they do sell. If it is was in this area, I could charge about 35-40 for each lamp and lower for the one that needs to be rewired. I would definitely sell them with the shades and if any of the shades appear to be a bit nicer (newer, better condition, etc) I would ask even a bit more, as shades are very expensive....but this is pricing for my area in Chicagoland.

Update on lamps - photos and tested. The middle one and the one on the right work. The one on the left has a split plug and taped cord. I wouldn't test or use it until I advised a potential buyer to have it re-wired. They are all about 5 feet tall.

Gearing up for my first estate sale of the year next week. I was up in the attic today and saw three brass floor lamps. I assume my parents put them in the attic because they didn't work (I haven't tested them yet) and some of the bases are pretty tarnished and the shades are retro and kinda dusty. I wanted to get an idea of how much to ask for them (both if they are working or not) and if I should sell the shades with them? Or should I just scrap them? Seems a shame though. They are heavy brass base lamps.

Yes, it always makes me wonder why people heading out for a day of tag sales take Ex-Lax or have that Big Gulp coffee.
Comment by Timesavers Estate Sales on May 3, 2011 at 10:55am
Oh boy, this is a very common one for us. First of all, many of our clients ask us to not have the "public" use their bathrooms....and we oblige and we would rather do that, as so many people think they can use the bathroom, as if it is a store or something....it does get annoying at times. What we tell them is "I'm sorry, our client (or the homeowner) will not allow us to have the public use their bathroom" and that stops them right there.  They cannot argue as we are not the ones saying it, but on behalf of our client. And we do have many clients tell us that (not ask, but tell) so we of course oblige. Sometimes we also keep our personal items in the bathroom....coats, etc so we don't want people in there. And yes, people will say they can't "hold it" and have to go badly, but oh well, that's not our problem. A few exceptions have been for us a very elderly person or a young child who looks like he/she is going to pee on the carpet at any moment.  Now, I'll tell you a story why we don't allow this (whether or not our client gives us this directive).....one time we had a sale where there was a master suite and people had to go into the bedroom, as there was a lot of clothing, etc.  Someone decided to use the bathroom in there, had a bowel movement, wiped themselves and left that very filthy toilet paper on the carpet next to the toilet instead of in it and did not flush........I know...Ugh.  And of course, since we were in charge of the house, we had to clean it up. That was it for us.....No One is using the bathroom. They can leave the sale and find a facility and if they don't come back, we don't really care.  Most people are nice, but there is quite a group out there who are so disrespectful to us and to our clients' property, that we would rather not have them even come to the sale at all.  Now if it were my own house and I was running a garage sale....I would NEVER let them use the bathroom.....not safe or secure and a very bad idea.

How should a person having a tag/garage/estate sale deal with people that want to use their bathroom facilities? I have had people ask to use the bathroom on occasion and I really don't like to send them off to an area where I can't keep an eye on them. I usually tell them to go up the street to the local convenience store, but their usual rebuttal is that they can't wait that long! What would you do?
