Re: Anybody else sell on eBay? Elsewhere?
I sell on ebay occasionally, and my mother used to make a living at it. She complains now that it's pretty hard to sell anything for even close to what it's worth, which in my opinion is how auctions run in general.
Unless you have something out of sight, it normally goes for well below book value. Mom doesn't do a fraction of what she used to.
Before ebay there was a false sense of rarity. Now, things we thought were rare are listed on there every week, and there is never a shortage of people who just want to give things away.
