Friend encouraged me to start eBaying and I have sold a couple of things. She said 'folk really do buy any old thing, start putting your stuff on'. So I did but the items are quite 'normal' - toys and CDs etc. I do have a huge amount of stuff though and wondered how likely it is that someone would see it let alone bid - there must be millions of items on there - do you think the number of users makes it likely that whatever you're trying to sell, someone will be looking for one?
Just randomly looked at coat hangers there - have a whole wardrobe full of empty ones after clearling out a relative's clothes and folk actually are bidding on them <plans to fill a box with hangers next time I go there>
Two non working tamagotchi's that were scratched, Hubby said to bin then, I said no way, listed them for 50p, was really honest explained that they were scratched and didnt turn on and although I believed that was because the battery had ran out, I wasn't sure and they both went sold as seen!! I had 21 bids on them and sold them for £23, I was so embarrased I held onto the cash for ages expecting a complaint but I got glowing feedback!!!
machin I'm sure I have an old tamagotchi somewhere. This is an incentive to tidy up my loft!
I sold 240 x 1990 - 2000's Vogue magazines for £240 quid. I expected to get a few quid but not that much! They were bought by an antique dealer, I thought his car suspension was going to break when he loaded them into his car. I still have a few hundred vogues I can sell if I fall on hard times .
