I'm trying to get rid of some old stuff. I'm not great at throwing out usable items so I have been trying a combination of a Facebook Pay-It-Forward page and ebay. It all started recently when someone in a birth related Facebook group was looking to buy books that I happened to have. I sold three books to her. As I put the books in the post satchel I flicked through them and wondered what forgotten gems of wisdom I was sending off but I hadn't picked them up after the first reading five-ish years ago so it's unlikely I would pick them up again, better to get a few dollars for them while somebody still sees them as relevant.
Monopoly and Cluedo were picked up by some local people. I hope they get some use from them.
I also managed to find a buyer for some toner cartridges taken from a dumpster. I advertised two on ebay and a guy came and bought four. He came back the next week for another four. I suspect he will be back this week for the last ones. He offered a price lower than I advertised (which was already a mere fraction of the new price) I hate it when people offer even lower than an already low price but I might have waited a long time for another buyer and we both knew it. Well played Mr Tight-wad, well played.
Now I'm having a shot at Piffing (Paying it forward) some vintage sewing patterns. I see that some people are selling old patterns for $5 to $10 a piece so I should be able to give them away, right?
Time will tell, I suppose.
