Rich Snippets not showing, though verified in the tool

I added rich snippets (schema.org formats) to my site about 4 months ago, and verified it worked with the structured data testing tool. It didn't show up in the results, so I figured it would take some time.

Well, 4 months later, still no SERPs had the snippets.

So I tried the new data highlighter, and set it up the same way I did with the rich snippets. It's been a few weeks (since 6/2), and that's not showing anything either.

the data highlighter is showing as published...

Any idea what I might be doing wrong? Do I need to just be patient?

Driving me nuts here ;)

are you marking up one of the supported content types?

Google supports rich snippets for these content types:

Businesses and organizations

Google also recognizes markup for video content and uses it to improve our search results.

Yep, it's products.

And as mentioned, it's all verified in the structured data testing tool, shows as works.

even the data highlighter shows its published, but still no SERPs show it.

I used the below schema format for 3 product pages (antiques so in Used category with no previews).
Showed up within a week or so. I could see the "price" and "In stock" had been added which is the quickest way for me to tell that it worked. It did not place those products any better in Search but maybe eventually.....

When researching this I kept finding conversations and examples where more than one format was being used and I don't know if that's ok so I just stuck with Schema format.

I'm not positive I have the top Schema code "WebPage" in the right location. I think there were some examples where it was placed above the </head> section but this is where I placed mine.

In my CONTENT section of my page.
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/WebPage">
<span id="breadcrumbs" itemprop="breadcrumb">
<a href="http://www.example.com/">Home&nbsp;</a>&#062; <a href="category.html">Category&nbsp;</a>&#062; Product Name</div><br />

<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Product">
<span itemprop="name"><h1>name<h1>
<p itemprop="description">product described</p>

<div itemprop="offers" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/offer">
<span itemprop="sku">#x050</span>
<span itemprop="price">$23</span>
<meta itemprop="priceCurrency" content="USD" />
<link itemprop="availability" href="http://schema.org/InStock" />In stock
<link itemprop="itemCondition" href="http://schema.org/UsedCondition">Used

I use php so I worked all this into that code on my pages and it worked fine.
