Hi - have sold clothes every now and then on ebay and generally done ok as tend to be womens boden and childrens boden.

I have several childrens clothing items to list but am trying to have a clear out in house and garage. Would these things sell?

Camping Wardrobe - would have to be buyer collect

Pottery figure - not well known make - but quite quirky - ? collect - bit worried about packaging correctly as could break


Small filing cabinet (no key)

girls bikes

IKea baskets (wire for inside wardrobes)

What do you think? most of these are buyer collect - is there a better way to sell? thanks

may do - look at completed listings

and only do cash for collected items

Def give it a go as it's free listings this weekend.

They will definitely sell if the price is right!

I'd try gumtree for the bikes. Local facebook selling sites can be good for this sort of thing as well

If they are collection items it really depends on where you live. I'm quite rural so collection only items don't sell well. My Brother lives in a city and sells loads of stuff easily.

I have sold loads of stuff on eBay and find everything sells well. If they don't sell first time, I just put them back on every time there's a free listing weekend.
I sold my sons last town bike- think I put the starting price of five pound and it sold for over thirty. Sold wardrobes, furniture, clothes, books, DVDs .... All sorts really.
Do list as cash on collection if they are for collection and if they have parts that don't work or need replacing make sure you put it in the listing so you can't get any come back for it.

Freeads best for the bike, I suspect.
None of them sound unsellable.

Nothing to lose by listing this weekend, try to get the listing going this evening or tomorrow eve.

I sell ceramics all the time, you just have to pack well 2 layers of bubble wrap the box should be 3-5cm bigger than item in all directions fill spaces with ideally packing peanuts , shredded paper will do shredded magazines and regular paper better than newspaper, some china does not sell depends on make check completed listings most good china is in pottery section rather than collectables

Absolutely - try anything. Use the free listing weekends. I've sold things I never thought people would want!!!! Half packs of stuff and everything,
