That's the truth. I had a yard sale benefitting a local animal shelter. One person donated a very ugly, rusty wood stove which didn't sell and weighed a ton. It was stuck on my front porch for awhile. I was desperate. Put it on Ebay and a guy drove from 3 states away to pick it up. I was amazed.
Yep, you never know what people will buy and there is most always someone on eBay
that will want what you're selling. Often you can get more for it than if you sold it at
a yard sale.
Of course, with a yard sale you can put everything out there at one time and place a
price sticker on it. Cost you nothing but your time. With eBay, it's a hassle because
you have to take pictures of everything you have for sale, log in, list the item, write
up the description, load the images, hope you get a ton of dollars for it, go to post
office, get box's, place items in box's, print out address labels........and so on and on.
