Stick with the flip number clock radios, they’ll bring good money even non working especially Panasonic.04/05/2021 at 7:18 pm in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 507: The Professionalization of Online Selling #87257

Was it an ebay seller that bought your cassette tapes, I’ve sold quite a few to a dr.bo who sells single tapes. By the way, those are highly prized tapes.04/04/2021 at 8:11 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 507: The Professionalization of Online Selling #87218
I try and convey my proper packaging techniques when I’m listing fragile items. I’m also wary of free shipping from sellers, as I think they would skimp on proper packaging to save money.04/04/2021 at 8:06 am in reply to: Burwood wall clock, Puzzle, Playing cards, 8track deck, Portable Playtape player #87217
I remember those knives from when I was in Boy Scouts. I have probably overlooked challenge coins not knowing what they were, thanks for all the posts on those, I will try and focus my eyes for them.04/04/2021 at 8:03 am in reply to: Burwood wall clock, Puzzle, Playing cards, 8track deck, Portable Playtape player #87216
Love that typewriter, so futuristic looking and great color. Making a video was a good idea, just a suggestion, hold the phone sideways for the wide angle.03/23/2021 at 9:53 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 506: We Don’t Have The Luxury Of Being Mediocre #86959
I’ve noticed as well that garage sales are being listed more on FB marketplace than CL the last couple of years. Also, Ive gone on wild goose chases following some miss placed pin locations on the CL/Yard Sale app locations, I sometimes forget to check the address listed that doesn’t match the pin location.03/21/2021 at 2:08 pm in reply to: Atomic tumblers, Marantz turntable, Micky Mouse mug, Betamax tapes, Walkman #86895
Those are some interesting sales especially that Porsche brochure packet, what a gold mine!03/11/2021 at 7:45 am in reply to: Yard Sale Treasure Map No Longer Includes Craigslist Posts #86624
Although Facebook Marketplace has started taking over for yard sale listings I will miss the Yard Sale Map app.
Get to know the auctioneers cadence and mannerisms so you’ll know when to start bidding, you want to be the last bidder, not the first.
If the auctioneer is on a stage make sure you’re near one of the helpers that call out when they see a bid. Waving your number card is a good way to catch their eye. Once the auctioneer says sold its over.02/21/2021 at 8:27 pm in reply to: FB Marketplace not telling me when I sell something that needs to ship???? #86084
I do all my FB listing on my iPad or Iphone, in those notification settings there are FB notifications with one specifically for marketplace.02/21/2021 at 8:19 pm in reply to: FB Marketplace not telling me when I sell something that needs to ship???? #86082
Yes, you get a FB message that an item has sold. Perhaps there is a setting for notifications that needs to be turned on.02/21/2021 at 12:15 pm in reply to: FB Marketplace not telling me when I sell something that needs to ship???? #86074
I believe you are paid 5 days after item is received by the buyer so as to give them time to evaluate and raise a complaint.
I’ve only sold one item via FB with shipping, other times I’ve had the buyer use paypal and bought my own shipping. They initiated contact before buying though, I’m not sure if there’s a way to list an item with shipping that you buy yourself.
Personally I think removing the background looks bad, the picture of it on a wood surface looks so much more pleasing.
Also, try an avoid having your finger in a photo, especially a closeup, it’s distracting. Call the ‘scrape’ a minor blemish.
Only use the determiner ‘an’ before words that begin with a vowel.
I ship large items all the time, Fedex has always been cheapest with the ebay discount.
