    Default Selling on Craigslist &/or Ebay

    Due to two of my husband's clients not paying us, we need to sell

    some items to get some quick cash. I have bought and sold on

    craigslist before, and tried to sell tickets on Ebay before but the

    tickets never sold so I ended up losing money. I don't want to do

    that, but we need to get rid of some stuff quick, the mortgage is

    due! We are trying to sell several carpentry tools, thousands of

    comic books, ladies shoes, and anything else I can find around the

    house! Anyone have any suggestions? I could have a yard sale, but I

    don't think people would expect to pay hundreds of dollars for

    carpentry tools at a yard sale, it isn't what most people are looking

    for.

    Hi Jennifer, I would stick with Craiglist. But here are some other sites I know of. Yahoo has classifieds, backpage.com, kaboo.com, bluejay.com, etsy.com Also, depending on your city there may be a yahoo group for selling items. Good luck Barbara

    Has anybody else had success with Craigslist? I guess it depends on what your selling, but I tried to sell my daughter's (size 2t) Old Navy jeans and didn't get one response.

    I think it depends on what you are selling.
    On eBay, you do get a larger audience, the price is determined by many factors (how many people bid, competition, setting a reserve, etc.), but you have to consider the fees.
    With a garage sale, you encounter people who will come along at the end of your sale and try to talk you down. With the eBay auction, you set it for $25, you get at least $25, not someone trying to get the item for $15. If that makes sense.

    Hello

    I think in can be a couple reasons. 1. Depends how well it is known in your

    area. 2.

    Sometimes I think it may be with the gas prices, it may not be worth going to

    check out.

    since it is such a little item. Needs to be set at a good price. I live in

    Austin Texas, and I

    have been able to sell everything I have put on the web site; but it was used

    furniture, and

    husbands tools. I have checked out clothers; but again I ended up not checking

    it out due to

    where it is at, just not worth it to me.

    Have a really good day

    Donna
