Sell on Ebay?
Did you ever sell anything on Ebay?

pdswife 08-03-2005 07:24 PM

I haven't sold anything.. but my son sure has. He's getting rich off ebay.

I'm getting poor.. all I do is buy.

We've never had any luck with Garage Sales, more hassle than it's worth really.

We have been putting off our last yard sale for the last 15 years (boy talk about procrastination) so this year, I opened a dedicated bank account just for Ebay (that way if anyone hacks into it they won't get much if anything at all LOL!) and started putting all this junk on there. I've already cleared almost $200.00 and that's just on old Vaccuum Tubes and Radio Parts.

Best darn garage sale we've ever had ha ha.

Anything that dosen't sell on Ebay goes either to Freecycle or Salvation Army.

nope never sold or bought anything from there.
the bf's mother is buying stuff from ebay all the time

no, i just give things i'm not using away 99% of the time. if its re-sale value is around $50 or more, i'll sometimes sell it but i just place ads in a free circular ad that we get. there's a new re-sale shop that just opened up. (i got some pretty cool stuff there, too.)
i did sell something over the internet once, but that was to a couple i was already buddies with. i was more then happy to do business with them and am glad i did.:smile:

Hi luvs! :cool:

Yeah, we buy and sell. We have bought everything from jewelry to DVDs to our latest car. We have sold a few things. We bought a bronze box for 50 cents at a yard sale and sold it for almost $90.

Isn't it great to watch the bidding on ebay go up UP and UP even higher.
People are so silly about how much they'll pay for things.

Barbara L 08-04-2005 12:26 AM

Yeah, some people are nuts. We don't have money to play with, so we take our bids seriously. I would love to find some crazy thing around the house to put up for auction and see if anyone bids on it. Like the guy who sold his favorite "air" guitar!

My son works at Safeway ( he got a promotion today!!!!) and a few years ago
they had a beer display that included a life size balloon type football player.
After the dislplay was taken down they gave him the man at no cost. They were just going to throw it away. Some idiot ( ok, he was prbly a very nice man) bid over 100$ for the silly thing!

I'm much too cheap to pay a cent more than the item is worth. I decide my FINAL bid before I place my first one.

I get pretty excited when I win. :)

Barbara L 08-04-2005 12:38 AM

We do the same thing. We decide our final bid first, but we usually (if possible) wait until near the end to actually place our highest bid. We've snuck in and gotten things at the last minute before, and we've had others sneak in and get them away from us at the last minute!
