As the thread title suggests, I have absolutely no idea where to start!

Having been an expat for more than four years we have continued to ship everything across the world with us and finally we have decided enough is enough and to eBay it all.

My main concern is at we are currently living in France (moving to s.korea in 6 months so ideally will have sold the lot by then) I can't speak a word of French so can't really post it on the French site, but what do I do about posting the stuff to the uk?

Posted a child's jacket to a friend in n.ireland this week and it set me back 18€ shock ( mind you that was recorded and value of 40€) do I send the eBay stuff recorded? Do I mention the goods will come from France?

We have some bigger items too, snow boards, Moses baskets etc, what is the best thing to do with this lot confused

Any help and advise would be great...I'm currently sat with 3 huge piles of clothes, an I phone to take pictures and that's a far as I can get grin

Only bother to sell small but high value items on Ebay.
Can a French friend help you sell big items locally?

I will ask around for help with the bigger items, makes sense as the postage will probably be more than I sell the items for!

We have so many clothes, dh especially has loads of branded names. What would be the best way to post? Do I have to get it signed for?

Sorry I really am clueless!
