Last week while I was loading up on all of my various crafty supplies for Christmas decorating projects, I came across this coffee mug at Goodwill. I loved the vintage colors and I knew that glass when I saw it: Anchor Hocking Fire King. Fire King is no longer made and was originally created for basic, everyday use giveaway glassware. And what that means, is that it was commonly given away with sacks of flour and such. Now, it’s extremely collectible.
So, when I saw this mug I knew it was coming home with me and for .59 cents, why not? I decided the next day that I would look it up and just do a simple Google search on “Stuckey’s Coffee Club”. First hit was this listing on Ebay. Drum roll…..
I was totally shocked! $87!!! I was not expecting that. At. All. So now, I’m left with a dilemma. Should I sell or not sell? I do really love the vintage goodness of this coffee mug, but an $86.41 profit is really something!
Now, I’m asking you. What should I do? Would you go through the hassle of setting up an Ebay or Etsy shop with the hopes of selling this mug? I mean, I’ve got my eye on other vintage goodies that I could totally sell in a shop. What do you think?
I’ve linked up to Flea Market Finds over at Her Library Adventures. Go check out all the goodness!
