Do you ever try to Sell something?

It seems Each time we sell something. People don't show up! We wait all Day.. Like today. DH catches 30 Chickens & cages them. No one showed up! We've waited hours! Soon he'll release them. He doesn't take anyone to his coops for Disease control, Safety Etc. Plus+ then people always want what isn't for sale, . So another Wasted Day. When We're late ever we call. Its just how we are. Ever wait for no show's? How many are them out there?

  • When we tried to sell a perfectly working washer & dryer that the previous owners left here at this house we bought (I used them several times before ours were delivered and they worked great) no one would answer any of the ads. We first asked $150 for both, dropped the price to $90 for both, and then went as low as $50 for both. We finally called The Salvation Army and donated them so someone could get some good use out of them.
    We put ads everywhere we could think of, too. Bulletin boards at our grocery stores, in the local newspaper, on our community's website, word of mouth, even CraigsList. We got zero response except from a con-artist trying to get us to cash a $3,000 check, ship the machines to them, and send them the remaining amount. We called the bank and the account was closed. Working for the Federal government made us a lot wiser to scams.
    Anyhow, I hate no responses, too.
