    Thanks Wasp, I just tried my 1st post :)

    I didn't know they let you list stuff free.
    When I had my original account I'm pretty sure there was a listing fee???

    Let's hope it works :) and I get some of my dough back!!!

    For the record, i dont pay much attention to auctions with a reserve. I feel the same way about ads for vehicles that have "call" listed under the price. I feel like that is the same as saying "we want too much for it". Just give me a ball park as to where you want to sell it by setting a starting bid, and i will be more likely to pay attention. The make offer thing is nice too, at least it will open some communication between the prospective buyer and seller.

    Look for similar items in the completed sales. See how many bids were listed, final bid result. Maybe list separate rather than as a lot. If you are a new seller with little feedback that could have a negative vibe for a lot of serious buyers too.

    I did the starting bid & free shipping. I did the cheapest one 1st, $1000 starting bid.
    I did forget about the paypal fee's, but I just want to check it out.

    There is nothing like these for sale anywhere.
    Similar stuff for other cities are much much cheaper,
    for some reason we are really stupid at bidding at charity auctions in Chicago :(

    I bought stuff from out of town auctions and paid 25-50% of what a similar Chicago item cost me :(
