you want how much???

In preparing for another trip, I am once again desperately hoping to unload some stuff.

I was using Ebay back in 1999 when people were still afraid of using their credit cards online. (Admittedly, those said people still feel that way today.)

NOW is different though.
Everyone wants to know the exact price it it to ship to their city, the price under several shipping options, how long under each option...
Or my favorite, is I buy several, can I pay only one shipping? How much?
well, it depends on which items, the total weight, etc...

In the end you spend more time entering and researching information than the 5 dollar profit you might get for it.

Looking for other alternatives, I remembered something I saw in Columbus, Ohio several years ago - a brick-and-mortar Ebay outlet. o.o

With the caveat that selling on ebay is NOT easy (Not like it was 10 years ago. Again, it's a profitless pain in the a$ now.), an excellent article about ebay consignment shops:

Still feel up to it?
Then you will want to find an eBay Drop Off Store or eBay consignment seller through eBay Trading Assistant Directory

For general stuff, there's this site to search through: Consignment Pal
Their blurb being use the Consignment Pal Resale Shops Directory to find consignment and resale shops, collectors, eBay consignment stores, liquidators, antiques, estate sales, art, etc.

Cheers! (^_-)-☆

Thanks again for stopping into my little corner of the 'net, and Happy Browsing!!
