    Default I'm selling my VH collection and need your help...

    Would you sell it all as a lot or individually?

    I don't want anything left over and keep in mind that shipping individual items could be less cost effective for someone than as a lot.

    I've got things like LP's (sealed and opened..includes the Looney Tunes red promo), 45's, rock magazines, buttons, cloth banners, etc.

    Thanks

    Oh. Some of this stuff is hard to find / rare.

    I guess it depends where you plan to sell it.
    If you sell it here I would think many of us have various things that you have but not others and therefore selling each item piece by piece would work best, you'd also probably get more money from us . If you work shipping into the cost then the cost of shipping should not matter that much to you. I'd sell items piece by piece, but offer a discount for someone buying a large chunk.

    BTW, I'd love to see a list of what all you have.
    I've got quite a large collection myself but I'm always looking to add to it.

    That's pretty good advice in post #2 I'd say. Personally think you would stand to make a little more money selling items individually though. I too would like to see your list of things.

    HEY h*bunter! How are you doing??


    Um, if you're just wanting to get rid of it, um, you could just give it to me. I'd take the most excellent care of it.


    Eh really, I think you'd be better off selling it individually.

    There are some pros and cons with em both. I used to have a 30,000 car Hot Wheels collection that I just got sick of. (they make to many now).
    I could have sold the stuff individualy and made alot of money, or I could sell it in one shot and not deal with the hassle. I sold it all at once to a guy from the Bronks.
    Made alot less but it was all gone at once.
    You also could split it up. sell the high priced stuff individual and lot the stupid shit.
    Think about it and sort it out. But remember, the economy is real fucked up right now.

    I'm sure a lot of us would be more than happy to purchase some of what you have to offer. Positing your list and let Capitalism do the rest!!

    having been an antiques collectibles dealer in the past (it's how I worked my way thru college) I can tell you that selling piece by piece will take a LOT of time.

    If you don't mind the time, you'll probably get more, but the collection will be cherry picked and you'll end up with the flotsam and jetsam

    If your desire is to move the whole collection and not so much getting the top dollar, I would suggest posting some of the best pieces individually and creating lots of the rest, including one or two really desirable things in each lot of common stuff...kinda like making an easter basket with a really choice chocolate bunny and a lot of cheap jelly beans.


    good luck, I'm thinking of selling off a bunch of 1990's star wars toys in orginal boxes, and a crate of so of character dolls myself

    getting to the point where I want less out of life, I guess

    Do what the cable companies do...break it up into groups and put one really good channel...uhm..I mean one really good item into a lot with some of the crappier channels...uhm...items..and sell the lots separately.

    You can also save on shipping and sell the high quality stuff to your Hamilton/Burlington neighbours at rock bottom prices.

    If you've got any OU812-RHRN era stuff, I'd love to take dibs on that.

    Sorry it's taken me a bit longer to get at this than I thought. I'm typing everything up right now.

    rockyvanheineken - I do have Balance on LP still sealed...

    But give me a few to get it all compiled.
