Hey folks, I was inspired by Alexander Wolfe of T Blog's recent sale of a bunch of stuff to turn it into something good and am looking to do a bit of garage clearing out. I'm looking to sell a bunch of stuff and plan to offer it to you all before doing a broader listings.
For sale will be a knife, a couple water filters, some holsters, pouches, slings and random stuff.
My goal is to make enough money to buy an optic for an undisclosed project. I would like to make enough cash to buy an Aimpoint micro or at least get most of the way there and save the rest.
Anyway I want to run something by you all before I take pics and list stuff here for you all.
A lot of the stuff I have to sell are fairly low priced items. If for example I sold a pouch (which cost me $20-25) for $10 and paid $5 to ship it to you that would not be cost effective. At the same time if I build in the cost of shipping to every item prices will be pretty inflated. Even though you would pay that added cost for a new item anyway the sticker shock is a problem.
Here is my tentative plan. List stuff at reasonable prices (50-85% of new price depending on condition and such) that are fair for both parties. For purchases less than $50 a $10 charge will be added for shipping so I do not lose my shirt to shipping on small sales. For purchases over $50 I will foot the bill for shipping.
As the perspective purchasers how does that sound to you?
