Thread: Selling stuff

    Default Selling stuff

    I'm getting a little discouraged as I try to sell some belongings to

    get extra cash. I've used the local consignment store, craigslist,

    and ebay, and am not having much luck. I don't mind investing SOME

    time to net some money, but it's not paying off.



    I currently have to sell:

    - wedding dress

    - china place settings & serving pieces

    - Halloween costume

    - random jewelry (gold and stones, but not worth alot)

    - antique rocking chair

    - pool cue



    I remember folks talking about auction sites other than ebay, that

    are free to list, but can't remember the names. Can anyone recommend

    one that has a fair amount of volume? Any other ideas?



    Thanks,

    Suzanne



    P.S. I just had a yard sale in September to sell some smaller stuff,

    and netted $60. It's $60 I didn't have before, but I still have alot

    left that didn't sell.

    I have noticed for some reason, that a lot of people list things for sale on eBay starting with a 99 cent price tag. It seems to get bids going. However, some of them do not end up with a decent final selling price. For instance, list a wedding dress, truly worth $500 for 99 cents - I would put a reserve price on it so that you are not giving it away for $30 at the end of the auction. Herlean

    Hi Suzanne,



    There aren't any other auction sites that have anywhere

    near the traffic of ebay. Sad, but true. I personally

    am hoping that google will get one going and give

    ebay a run for its money, but I'm not holding my

    breath



    My thoughts when reading your post - are you

    perhaps over-pricing your items? Have you checked

    to see what other similar items are going for, and made

    sure that yours are in the same price range? And taking

    condition into account when pricing?



    Also, are potential buyers able to see photos in

    some way? Many people won't even trouble to ask

    questions if they can't see photos first.



    Good luck!

    I know what you mean. I have invested in some wasteful time events,

    also. I wish I would have occupied the time in a booth rental place

    where the items can sell without me there. Where are you located?

    You may want to try to go on Yahoo and find the local "yardsales" or "bargintrader" groups in your area. All of those site have excellent deals and they allow you to sell your items. There are also "freecycle" groups that everything is free. There are fantastic deals on there, but you have to be quick to get the good deals. Everything is free . No selling allowed.

    Does anyone know where I can purchase heartworm prevention without a vet's rx? I do not take my animals to the vet unless they are sick (please, I know this is not the best, but I have 8 rescued dogs and cats and cannot afford it). I vaccinate them myself and take them to rabies clinics for shots. I had a years worth of Heartguard from when I had my dog fixed at the mobile clinic, but it has run out in September and I need more. Thank you! Kathy

    Hi Katherine, You can't get them without a prescription from your vet, but once you have that you can buy them online a lot cheaper than from the vet's office. I just found out about this and will do it too once my supply runs out. Of course, my vet's office said that don't guarantee it if you buy online, but I think that's just to try to discourage you from buying online. I'm sure the vet's make a nice mark up on all the meds they sell. Sharon
