Selling one's belongings

Post by walkbythelake on Sat Jul 16, 2011 2:36 am

I am trying to sell some of my more valuable belongings. So far I have put some furniture items on craigslist. I am still advertising them at a value that represents their worth in terms of quality. I am not getting any buyers as I have in previous years when I have sold items on craigslist. Perhaps because there may be 80,000 99ers the list is flooded too many people's belongings. So the question is where I can get the best price? Are there any particular consignment stores that can get someone a good price on some high quality furniture? Is e-bay worth the effort? A moving sale?

Also, where can I sell some items of Navajo jewelry?

I also have a very nice musical instrument from a non-Western culture - I looked at various types for sale on the Internet - found that the one I have has very high end carvings and decorations. I hate to sell it, but if that is the alternative to homelessness, I should. It could be worth $1300 - $2200 - I still have more reearch to do to find the optimal price. That could keep me going another 1-2 months.

I guess consignment shops would depend upon where you live. You can probably look up reviews on CityData or Yelp. (not sure of web address). I've heard that people do make money on ebay. Maybe you could stipulate that buyer picks up merchandise. Maybe music stores buy and sell?

If it isn't against your religious beliefs, many pagan websites have their own auctions (Witches Voice, etc). Navajo jewelry and musical instruments would probably be popular. I've not used them, so I don't know how well they work.
