Hi, I have that January feeling of having too much 'stuff' around not being used. I am also in the final few months of maternity leave so it makes sense to use the time wisely.
So...jewellery. I have some heavy silver Tiffany earrings, never worn (I don't wear earrings any more) - I have all the packaging etc but no recipt as they were a gift. Where is the best place to sell them? I have never sold jewellery before though my mum has made a fortune at cash for gold type placea wity broken necklaces etc.
Also, maternity clothes. I will definitely not be having anymoee and have quite a few Blooming Marvellous tops etc that are in good condition. Plus trousers and jeans which seem to do quite well on ebay. Is ebay the best place to sell? I am a memberof the local facebook selling group but I don't really want the bother of people bartering over the cost of a top. Has anyone successfully sold via gumtree for clothes?
Hi Linerunner Yes, I think I will stick to ebay for clothes- a bigger market. I see some of the conversations on our selling page and people seem quite demanding and want everything for a pound. I will probably use the page if I have stuff that just needs a good home though.
Linerunner it's boxed, yes, and with the original receipt, I can't remember a certificate to be honest although there probably is one. It's packed away in the loft you see. I've absolutely no idea about selling something like that so I'd be grateful for any advice
For your watches & earrings, try the specialist jewellery & silver sales that most auction houses hold. There are lots of auction houses all over the country. You can get a free valuation of any item you are entering for sale & can put a reserve on it so doesn't get sold for peanuts.
I regularly sell clothes shoes handbags and jewellery on eBay - every 2-3 months I have a mini clear out and usually earn enough to treat myself to a few new things Golden rules for me are never sell anything that I wouldn't be happy to buy myself, good photos, accurate descriptions and send everything recorded or special delivery for valuable items
