Default only my 2nd post and i'm asking for help....

only my 2nd post here and i'm asking for help....

my 6 and 2yr old girls are already asking for their own room/space so since i'm trying to be the best dad ever, i have decided to start selling off/getting rid of most of my stuff thats housed in one room, to make room for their stuff...

here's where i need your help/advise,

whats the best way to move these off my "launch pad"???

while i dun expect to retire as a millionaire, i do not wanna make a loss where it comes to these "toys"...

so, its it more profitable to sell these off "one by one by one" or as "sets" or as an "entire lot"??!!! (profitable) being the key word here, mind you i am not a money hungry troll, but just trying to make daily ends meet...and hey! who in their right minds would wanna make a loss right??

TIA for your honest advice...

OH MY GOD,
That is awesome
I would say take your time and sell them off little by little.
I'm no market wiz, but "supply and demand" comes to mind from economics class You don't want to flood the market (as well you could )
Maybe some of the guys have a better appreciation of the market though!!!

I'm guessing here but if there are multiple's of the same type, it's only a dealer who's likely to want to buy the lot from you and therefore won't pay you as much as he want's to turn a profit selling them on. I'd tend to sell them separately to collectors who are looking for each specific type.

Wowzers - there's a fair few bux sitting there, that's for sure!

Selling them individually would be better I think as only dealers would be likely to purchase the job lot.

Prices for Dinky Eagles fluctuate wildly and you might find that they'll be fairly low right now in the run up to Christmas when people are traditionally skint - particularly on eBay.

Tip: Don't sell the all white one as 'factory issue' though - according to expert concensus they were never sold like that.

Good luck.

i hear ya base commander! yes the "all white" one ( i have only one) is one that i will keep as i don't fancy "fooling" others into thinking that its "special" ......

and thanks for the tip bout the "skint" issue up to christmas, will wait till the new year rolls round, when peeps wallets have healed after the festives!!

Since they never issued it. Well, that just makes it more special
