I used to sell a lot of items on ebay and made some decent money doing so in the past. Here recently the site is being over run with the cheap garbage coming out of China, it's hard to get the actual value of your items now because of so many similar items listed. It seems to me that the bidders are looking for cheap and not concerned about quality any more. I have quit selling on there and haven't regretted the decision to do so. This is only my opinion and should be taken as just that, MY opinion. Dave

i agree with dabar39, we had a store on e-bay for a wile but the fees keep going up its gotten way out of control. and like he said every one is about cheap stuff. anything of quality gets passed over for a similar item thats a cheepo. it has turned into a dollar store instead of what was a decent flea market.
too bad really. you might try creags list. you could list it locally and skip the shipping and offer to do customer stuff for them. horse shoes pn e-bay would prob ly not work as there is a lot of fake shoe stuff made out of punched sheet that will ship cheaper as well as sell cheaper. you can definitely give it a try but at $5 to list it + a final sale fee + $15 i think it was a month to take pay pall. they canceled a few of our auctions because we said we wont take pay pall. they say you have to take any payment offered and can cancel your auction if they want. its really stupid there now.
good luck i hope it works better for you than it did for us.
thanks for the help
hope i helped

summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.
thanks for the tip! Just got my "kit", yes, I was suckered into that late night show paid programming.... But I figured I'll give it a try...Hey, I'm not that knieve and think I'll be some of those people that make $5,000 a month! But hey, pro wrestling it REAL too, ain't it I'll try it for a couple of months and see what happens...Didn't know the fees got that expensive
Will try some stuff on Craig's list also!
Wife and I have been trying to find time to go to the swap meet over here. Hope to get around $200 for the junk that's been accumilating around here...
Kind of stuff I don't want to bother packaging and shipping out (way too heavy).
