Rare Littlest Petshop and Calico Critters Luxury Townhome + Accessories

Very good eBay haul this morning. Went to two community sales today. July 14th is Bastille day here and a national holiday.

My toys haul

My first biggy is the Calico Critters Luxury Townhome, filled (and I mean filled) with little accessories, figurines and furniture. And I almost walk by without asking the price because these are ALWAYS expensive even in garage sale. Glad I ask because it was 10 euros (about 12$) for everything!! I'll probably sell the empty house locally to avoid the packing and shipping of this big piece and will sell the rest in small lots.

My "I have no idea what this is but I am buying anyway and will check later" of the day is this set of fairies from Early Learning Center. It should sell, but I paid too much. I was unfamiliar with this line of toys and took a bet. Will make money, but not much. That's ok, I learned something.

The Spider-Man 3 lunchbox was free, it contained all the little Calico critters accessories.

And of course my dose of Littlest Petshop!! Lots of them, good ones too! I paid a bit more then I usually do, but there are so many good and rare LPS in there that it was a no brainer. Some good cocker spaniel,  great Danes, collie, huskies.... Plus the timing was right, I sell so fast that it was about time I got some new ones to add to the store. The more you have, the more you sell. I offer free shipping on them, plus a discount for purchase over 25$. So even the cheap less rare Littlest Petshop sells.

Good old LPS!

Small But Easy Profit: Today's eBay Haul and how to clean Petshops

Nothing that big in today's haul but all money makers and pretty easy to ship (except for the mugs that requires a bit more packing work).

I have a lot of Petshops including some accessories. Some of the LPS are good money maker, and even the cheaper ones eventually sell.

I will need to clean some of them, water is an enemy because they have a metal spring in the neck to make the bobble-head and kids like to play with them in the water. When they do you end up with rusty neck. How do I clean rusty Littlest Petshop necks: lemon juice mixed with salt. Works great and doesn't affect the colors and paint like chemicals will do. Just make sure the lemon juice is pure and doesn't contain water. For the overall stains and occasional marks, usually a magic eraser will do the job. You can buy cheap ones on Amazon here (affiliate link). The cheap ones don't last as long as the name brands but they are as effective.

I also found a bunch of Fisher Price Little Peoples as well as an Elena picnic set complete (also by FP).

Bought some clothes for the kids and I . They may or may not end up on ebay. Will see. These aren't in the picture.
