|Aren't they cute? Those little cup things are the pawns.|
I thought they were both interesting and unique, the two main things I look for when I am out trolling for merch, so I bought the box. I thought that they were quirky enough to sell as individual pieces for people who like interesting accessories and decor.
After sorting and cleaning them out, I realized that there were four pawns missing. Additionally, two other pieces were damaged, sadly including one of the queens.
|The bishops look kind of...well..phallic. (Someone had to say it!)|
I've priced them as individual stoneware peices, with no mention of the chess set. So far, they're selling pretty well. I've made the two bucks back and then some.
Sometimes this junking thing is about having the vision to see beyond what something is to what else it could be, then helping others to see it too. I will eventually work a few of the pawns into my religious item section, because they look like cool little chalices. The bishops I will add to my adult novelties section.
No. I do not really have an adult novelties selection!
