    Hrm we're selling all our household bits and pieces like vases, curtains, coffee machine, electricals basically everything. And then a whole heap of baby stuff. New cot, new pram, new portacot.

    Oh and some furniture.

    What does everyone else sell?

    So 6.50am the line up began! It was advertised for 9am. By 8am there was at least 20 people waiting. They pushed each other through the gate and by 8.45am 95% was sold!
    It was awful lol people yelling and throwing money at me lol they were trying to buy things that were part of the front yard!

    If you try & sell stuff on ebay you'll find that $1 per item is actually pretty good unfortunately! Crazy, but true! But, think about how many $1 items you might have to sell, especially if you have multiple sizes of baby clothes & it adds up.

    I was selling mine for $1 each but it was only the target/big w stuff. Ended up selling the a whole box for $3 because it was the last to go.
    I saved the purebaby/oobi etc for eBay in hope id get a bit more.

    Can i suggest that you put prices on larger items, and general prices for books, clothes etc. Usually if I'm only semi-interested in things I dont want to have to ask 20 times 'how much is this', but if I see that the books are $2 or whatever I might pick up a couple.
