If you have been following along you will know that aside from my regular 9 to 9 job (I’m not even joking) I have been setting up my own little side business buying and selling on Ebay. It’s like having that last spoonful of desert,where you have perhaps bitten off just a bit more than you can chew. I’m trying to get a thousand items in my store but people keep buying shit and I haven’t even reached 100 yet. If you want to check out the vintage pictures and postcards I am selling you can do so by clicking the link below.
Normally on a Saturday I hit the thrift shops but that can kiss my butt today, it is going to reach near 100 degrees in New York today. So instead I will work a bit more on my store. There was a couple of mistakes that I made early on, including two sales where I was out of pocket, but when you break it down it is easy to do. Shipping is $2.45 flat, Ebay takes 10% on all sales, Paypal takes 10% on all sales, then I have to buy the materials and of course the photos. So before I even start I have to weigh in that each item will set me back at least $5 before I even list it.
Anyway, I don’t want this all to be about Ebay, only one additional piece, the spanking photo that I am selling ends tonight 🙂
Now a long time ago I used to do either a Saturday morning newspaper or comic book spanking post. The comic book spankings are done in many places now, but nobody borrowed my idea of newspaper spankings. By that I mean posts, my newspaper clippings themselves get borrowed frequently, normally under the banner of “I have no idea where this came from” 🙂
So in order of fairness, I will tell you exactly where this clipping came from. It came from the Milwaukee Sentinel on March the 17th, 1929, enjoy. It is a monster sized article so be sure to click on the image for the full sized version.
I’m taking a little break from my Ebay work this morning to bring you a few items. Today I have a couple of old books covers and what looks life a spanking pennant.
The whole Ebay thing is keeping me occupied, I have about 500 photos left with another 500 arriving during the week. Most of the items I put up as a fixed price but there is a small portion that I put up for auction. To be honest it is pretty exciting when people bid on your items. Aside from the fixed price sales, I currently have three auctions that all have bids. The first one is no surprise, I totally expected that one to go.
Closely following on from swimsuit photos, the next best thing to sell is old cars. Yes, I know this isn’t a car, but you get the picture. Whereas virtually every swimsuit picture sells, not every single car one sells, but enough to count that’s for sure.
Slightly different this week for my Wednesday Classic. I’m on the road right now working in New Hampshire so I don’t have my archive with me. Coincidentally, on that subject, you know that you have made it when your company books you a room with two twin beds. For the uninitiated, in England we would call them a single. I mean, seriously, a lard ass like me needs more than a 36″bed width, lol.
Anyway, short and sweet, here are a gaggle of Ebay links where various spanking items are up for grabs, it is amazing what you can find on Ebay that is spanking related, a lot of it quite unique.
Before I get started today, stuntman posted a link in the comments to the video of my midweek post about the movie “The hard boiled canary“. You can watch the spanking portion of the video by clicking this link.
After the spanking pic today you can keep scrolling down for a vanilla update on my other project.
So what naughty girl is getting the spanking that she deserves today? Well if I’m totally truthful, this girl has got it before on this blog, but I have come across a better picture of that spanking so it is time for an update. Now the person who originally alerted me to this pic was will@gotham56, so I will give him full credit for the find.
This spanking pic goes back to 1946 and of course is from the play “ACT YOUR AGE”. It is like the biggest tease in the world, dude, just flip that little skirt up already!!
As for the vanilla front, I now have a collection of over 500 vintage pics in my collection, and I have started putting them up for sale. Yesterday I got my first two sales, proving that you can get money for old rope. The first pic went for $5.79 and the second one, from my personal spanking collection, went for $9.99.
My goal is to accumulate around ten thousand pics (not as crazy as it sounds), set up a web store, rent market stalls and sell online and who knows, maybe one day I can run my own little business. I’m also hoping to go flea marketing shopping with Pixie one day, that would be a lot of fun. Because of my work schedule though I haven’t even spoken to her for about six weeks. Vintage photograph shopping and wooden spoons and paddles, sounds like a day out to me.
As you all know by now, I have a little hobby going where I am buying and selling vintage photos, but keeping the ones that I like. We are talking literally 1000’s that I am bidding on and where I have already won about 500 old pictures. Just wait, you won’t believe some of the photos that I have won. It isn’t actually totally new, I have been buying vintage spanking pics for a while, so a number of pics on this site are actually owned by me.
This picture however, and I swear that that it is genuine, was part of a lot that I didn’t win. It is from the 1920’s, in a rural country setting, but what do you think that the lady is saying?
Here is my entry:
“Oh come on, do I really have to hold it for a picture? They will still be making fun of me a 100 years from now”
Here is a pic destined to end up elsewhere under the label of “I have no idea where this one came from”🙂
Well Windsor has that info for you, this one came from Hennessey, OK in 1969. Is it just me or does she have the position for taking a paddling down to a tee? And the look on her face tells me she knows exactly what to expect.
Enjoy, this will be added to my SENIOR SUPERLATIVES folder, as well as on other blogs where amnesia is a common problem 😀 By the way, click on the highlighted link because there really are some awesome pics in that folder.
Happy July the 4th to all of my American friends, and as I have spent more than half my life here I have a number of them. This weekend I have been enjoying my little side hobby and I went shopping at a vintage store today to pick up some old photographs. I managed to cull 23 of them and the dude charged me $11.50, which makes me feel a teeny bit guilty knowing that I am selling them for around the $5 mark. I will say this though, I put some serious effort into searching that photo bin. There was a goal that I had in mind, pics from the 1940’s and 1950’s that featured either a car with people in a pic, or females in vintage swimsuits. Before we get to the spanking photo, here are just a couple of my finds from today to share that little side hobby with you. Click on these pics if you wish to see the full sized version.
Now I am selling pics on Ebay, but I’m not going to link to that. Don’t need to get any creepy vibes from there. When I set up my Etsy store I will link to that to share my side hobby as I now have hundreds of vintage pics, and I run a vintage group on Facebook that has nearly 20,000 members as well.
So anyway, thank you for indulging me, it is always nice to have a side hobby and of course I will share some of my really good vanilla finds as time goes on, but from this day forward they will be at the bottom of the spanking stuff.
This weeks MEN ARE LIKE STREETCARS pic is from 1954, and as always I will add it to the Streetcars spanking folder which you can access by clicking on the highlighted text.
About time I gave you some spanking material, eh? At the moment I am working on a vanilla project that I had been planning for a couple of years now. It was one of those things that I kept putting off and this week I decided to take the plunge. I won’t bore you with the details, not yet anyway, lol, but in a nutshell I am creating my own web store/Ebay store/website where I will be selling vintage pictures. This is a non spanking venture, though I may put up some of my personal collection that I have collected over the years. It has long been a passion of mine and this past weekend I began the initial purchasing of vintage lots of old photographs. Now when I say ‘lots’, sometimes these lots are only 5-10 pictures. At the moment though I have paid out $60 and by the weekend I expect to have laid out $200 or more. Below is just one example of the pictures I will be selling in my web store, and yes, this is an actual pic from the collection.
But you lot ain’t here for that though, are you? Nope, we needs to give you some spanking action. So be sure to click on the article below, it is massive. I only downloaded this one page but if people are interested I am sure that I can find the follow up page on archive.org.
I’m going to be spoiling myself tonight by indulging in some British TV. It is a rare day that I am home before 9pm and I am so far behind on Peaky Blinders that I want to try and grab 3 episodes tonight if I can. Coming up shortly I am going to be making a post about my obsession with British television and films, and there is a new one starting shortly called “13” that I desperately need to remember to watch when it comes out. The premise real quick is about a 26 year old who has been held captive for 13 years and manages to escape. This is British TV though, so don’t expect a fairy tale, Hollywood ending. Anyway, coming soon I will share with you some of my favorite British shows, and ones that I want to get my hands on, the list is topped by “The Accused” though, so if you get a chance just take my word for it, it is an awesome show, season 2 especially. But I won’t get carried away just yet, that will be for a later post and I also want to make a vanilla one about my taste in music. When I say vanilla, I of course mean that the writing will be vanilla, but you know that you will get spanking pics with it.
This weeks Streetcars pic is from Yuma, Arizona in 1955
Because of my current work schedule there was a thought that crossed my mind today, and that was, how many times do you state that you are busy with work? I’m going to guess that it is a lot because obviously it is the case that I am working long and crazy hours and I want to let you all know that I am not neglecting the blog. Going forward though, I am going to try my hardest not to even mention it, I’m pretty sure that everyone knows it by now and one day I will be back to posting as regularly as I once did.
The reason I mention it today though was that yesterday I finally found some time to do a deep search of spanking pics. Now as I have stated before, my searches are NOT searching other spanking websites. I’m not knocking that practice, it just isn’t how I operate. My goal is to search mainstream locations, libraries, archives etc, to find you material that you might not have seen before. Basically it is my contribution to the spanking world and is what I hope is a unique approach to presenting spanking material. Many times what I find for you is posted on other websites the very next day so obviously they are enjoyed. I do think like Harry over at MAINSTREAM SPANKING though in that if you find something, common courtesy should be for other sites to allow you a grace period to present the fruits of your labor before claiming it.
Anyway, while I binged on the Euro 2016 championships, I searched and searched for new pics and what was the sum total of about three hours searching? One fricken’ pic, lol. Seriously, that was it, one pic from Men Are Like Streetcars.
That’s the way it goes sometimes though, and at least for you guys you can get to appreciate the fruits of my labor today as I present the pic that I found yesterday. The pic is from Abernathy, Texas in 1958 and while the hand is nicely placed for the spanking, what’s up with shoving her face into the couch 😉
