I am once again listing "stuff" for sale on Craigs List and Facebook groups. It's not easy to sell things....not because I don't want to get rid of them, but because you just have to find that one single person who wants exactly what you have to sell. I've avoided eBay, a site I used a long time ago, because I think they take a percentage and it just seems a hassle.
Used horse tack is hard to sell, no matter the condition.
Farm and ranch things are pretty easy to sell.
Pottery is hard to sell, no matter the condition.
Horse blankets should be very easy to sell, but surprisingly are not.
I haven't tried selling clothing, just boots. That hasn't been successful either. And so I usually end up donating clothing items. I should try to get money for them, but I don't want to be bothered with so many people coming over to look at personal items.
I think, most likely, I list my items at a higher price than people want to pay, due to the good condition. I don't want to give things away for half of what I think they are worth. Try try again, I usually say. And of course people want to negotiate the price down anyway, once they decide they're interested.
I shall persevere. I have some camera equipment but will sell anything of value to B&H. And then I can have new camera equipment. Yay! I also have two iPhones and an iPad which I am going to trade in to the Mac Store in SLO for my new Mac Book Air. Sometimes trade-ins are so much easier and I figure even $25-50 is better than having the item sit in a drawer.
Does anyone still use eBay? If so, what do you think of it? I know it's the best place to sell my pottery, but I've just hesitated to go back there.
From soup to nuts. From pottery to bridles. You name it....it might be for sale.
I am tired of having so much stuff.
It's supposed to rain today and someone is coming over to buy some of my 4x6 rubber stall mats. I'm selling them for $30 each and she wants 4. Money in the bank!
Ok, I have to get busy. Lots of things to sell!!
I hope you're having a great Sunday. Don't stress about Thanksgiving. Just enjoy.
I think it happens every Winter, the need to purge stuff. It seems we spend years collecting stuff, holding on to stuff, only to find late...
I travelled a fair amount when I was in my 30s and 40s. A lot of it was on company business and we didn't have a strict budget, so I c...
It rained and rained all day Sunday. But then Monday came 'round and we had a beautiful welcome break. I decided to drive over to th...
Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
