Clearing out your daughters Bedroom on Ebay

I have three daughters and over the weekend one of them decided it was time for a clear out ... as they do .Anyway, knowing that I was suffering with ebayitis she gave me this metal hand painted ornament to sell...check out the photo's

My problem is ...I havn't got a clue which category to list it in ...it seems pretty unique , very chic in a girly sort of way . It would attract the teenage market .

So fellow ebayers out there, I need your advice ..It is hand painted , made of metal and stands approx 12 inches ( 30cm ) tall ... Its labelled Baden ...but this is not a well known brand

Feedback please ...then I'll list it and we can all follow its progress ...you see this is the stuff that makes life so exciting :-)

Oh, Rob, this is just too cute!! I've got to have it. Let's put it up for a private auction on our sites to generate some traffic. I'll give you 11.50 GBP for it. How's that sound?

Andrea ..what do you mean by private auction ...I know I'm thick but you have to remember I'm new to this :-(

And don't forget shipping to the states will probably be 10 GBP:-(

10 GBP!!!!! Goodness, man, that'll cost me double the price of the item. But, it's so cute!

Hmmm, I have a little niece who would just adore this, though... All right, sold for 22.50, IF we both give each other all the traffic we can stand, okay (international trade and all of that)? It will be well worth it in the end ;-)

I promise to send you loads of traffic and I also promise to click on all your adsense for a week ... if I do that you will be able to buy yor niece an even better present :-)

Rob, is this an ornament as in Christmas tree ornament? Or is it a collectible figurine?

Rob, I did some research...there are a few categories you could use:

Collectibles/Decorative Collectibles/Other Brands/Ormanents or

Collectibles/Decorative Collectibles/Other Brands/figurines or

Collectibles/Decorative Collectibles/Other Brands/Other or

Collectibles/Ethnic/European

I think in this case your title is going to have to tell it all...one thing I think I'd mention in the title is the 60's look (that is a 60's look, isn't it)..and, I'd mention hand-painted. I'd steer away from mentioning Baden in the title if you're trying to attract U.S. sellers because Baden is some sort of sport things over here.

Hope this helps.
