    Re: Can you really.......

    My best sale was 2 plastic badges off my old Mk1 GTi which I got for free when the Beastie Boys VW badge nicking was at its height. I never fitted them (as I didn't actually get mine nicked) but I sold them to a couple of people in the US for 55 each.
    Certain things just don't sell, like CD's or videos or old HiFi, it tends to be the strange things that go for good money.

    as long as you describe it properly ie if its broken say its broken and have a pic it will probably sell, i have sold broken things before and people do actually buy it and still give pos feedback. its a good way to clear your garage! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif[/img]

    Its just like a car boot sale but for people who cant be arsed filling there cars full of crap then stand in a field with all there crap on a paste board for a few hours, suppose its not a bad thing then looking at it like that atleast you dont get everything pis wet though when it rains.

    Re: Can you really.......

    I've cleaned out my loft of comics, collectables, dvds, toys, books and other crap that i would have normally thrown away. I have sold 160 odd items and just cleared over 2000. My loft is now clear, so i am nearly done. Just have ago, you won't look back.

    Just steer clear of the [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jump.gif[/img] interest!

    Just remembr to start/finish your auction at the right time, Sunday night seems to be best, you get a lot of last minute bidding (sniping) when the most people are online. I've bid on stuff that finishes at stupid times like Wednesday afternoon and always seem to get a bargain.
