  • have you ever used facebook or craigslist? I am on quite a few local fb pages that are for "sales" purposes and I've sold over $100 worth of stuff! It's better than sitting out on a saturday wondering if someone will come/will even want what you have!

  • Only when it sells. So if you list it and you don't sell it, it doesn't cost you anything.
    Box the stuff up, take it to the Post Office and have them weigh it BEFORE you list it. Then you'll know how much to charge for shipping.
