Needing Advice!

Hello All....
I am looking for advice on this beautiful fall afternoon...
Beyond taking care of a sick baby... I have been tossing around the idea of selling some things around the house that have piled up in storage closets, drawers and such. I want to ask all of my blogger friends what you think about the simplest, most creative way to sell your treasures. Is it a yard sale, ebay, blog... I don't know and I really want your advice. I have baby things, clothes, furniture, home accessories, pictures.... The list goes on and I want to make more room in my home for the things that are important to me.
So here is the challenge ladies, put your thinking caps on and let me know if you have any great ideas on getting rid of the old to make room for the stuff I already can't find... but love.
Many Blessings Bloggers and I hope you can help with this challenge.
Love, Dana

I have had GREAT results "parting" with baby goodies via EBAY. It takes a little imagination and determination. But is successful. Try creating a "store" on EBAY to showcase your other treasures. They would probably sell better when showcased together.

Happy selling!

Thanks Michelle, I really appreciate the advice... Now I would just need to figure out ebay. Hmmm. Thanks, you always have great advice and I really do appreciate your advice.

Hey Dana, I have been doing the same thing...some of the ones I think will do better on Ebay go on there. Some will go into yard sale boxes...that's coming up this Sat. Then I am thinking about offering some of the nicer household items on my blog. Someone might see a treasure on there they just have to have. I think you name brand baby items would do great on ebay, but I have a hard time sellin household items on ebay. Hope this helps, Nancy

Hi Dana,
I have been wondering about this myself. I saw a blog, One Womens Cottage Life, I have the link over on my blog and she did a yard sale on her blog, I thought that was a great idea, the only thing is I'm not sure about shipping everything. I feel so bad about your little boy and I hope he is doing better, my little ones have had this before also and it is so scarry, when mine had it they recommended turning the shower on as hot as you can and let it steam up the bathroom then sit in the bathroom with him(on a chair or the toilet) it helps open up their airways so they can breath better.

Hello Dana,

First of all I hope your SWEET baby is doing better. It is always so sad when they are sick...sigh.

Selling your goods! I know lots of bloggers who sell their things on their blog. You could also make another cute blog and have a lead from this blog to your store! Check out my friend Bev at "Sew On and Sew Forth" where she has a lead to her store. You can find her link on my sidebar. Anyhoo, good luck with it and let me know when you start selling!

Hugs,
Maryjane

Hi Dana,

I think you might like to look into Craigslist..give it a try and let me know :)

I hope your little one is feeling better.

Hi Dana,
I think it depends on what you have. I have always had wonderful luck with yard sales, although I also just sold my pink kitchenaid via my blog. If you have a lot, I would definitely do a yard sale, and if you have some special things, you could put those items on your blog. Ebay can be great but the fees do add up. Hope this helps.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

Hi Dana - Haven't been by for a bit... Cheryl had a store on ebay and did quite well. Evidently takes quite a bit of time on the computer cause you have to keep checking the bids and such, but she had fun with it. She's closed it now since they're on their way to FLA for the winter. Otherwise a yard sale is usually quite successful....Hugs - Sheryl

Dana, I have been redoing my living room. I wanted to part with some nice mahogany furniture..without giving it away for $5.00. I sold it on Craig's List. It took a few weeks but finally sold it for the amount I was asking.
