In the rain.
I've come to the conclusion that eBay's far to much like hard work.
It's the packing-up that's the killer.
It takes me hours and hours and I'm rubbish at it.
For this last lot I painstakingly weighed everything, made the postage calculations as accurately as I could and still lost money on the carriage charges.
Several items didn't sell, some surprised me, some didn't:
- Brass Mask (surprised)
- Lion Brass Plaque (surprised)
- Two Brass Door Pull Handles (unsurprised)
- Brass Nut Crackers In The Shape Of Ladies Legs (very surprised!)
- Brass Sun God Figurine (neither surprised nor unsurprised)
- Working Replica Davy Lamp (surprised)
- Ornamental Oil Lamp (unsurprised)
- Glass an Brass Tea-Light Holder (unsurprised)
I can't decide if I should re-list them or not.
I'll sleep on it.
As I left the Post Office the sun came out and weights lifted off my shoulders.
I've still got a long way to go before I finally get rid of all my surplus possessions but I think I'll try a car-boot sale next.
Typing that last line made me think 'recipe for disaster'.
After the Post Office visit I did my tour of the 'crap' charity shops.
- Alexander Theatre Charity Shop
- FourSight Charity Shop
- RAFA Charity Shop
- Oxfam Super Saver Charity Shop
In yesterday's post I mentioned that my childhood ambition was to become a secret agent.
In Oxfam I bought an appropriate lunch box for 99p:
|It says 'Secret Agent' on it.|
