Hey everyone. This is my first go at starting a new thread that may help people. So if it's ,erm, not very good just ignore it as I no doubt sure you will.

Right, the concept is for people to post things that they have sold on auction sites like ebay. But thats not just it, it has to be things you would'nt normally think you would get money for but you did.

Weird things like empty fragrance bottles, I mean who would want a empty fragrance bottle?? But poeple do as I have just found out when I sold my wife's empty Angel perfume bottle for £5.50.

This may help people who have things lying around which they don't think they could sell and acquire the little bits of money to help to get debt free. So hope its a sucess. :o

    A Gameboy Advance SP which wouldn't charge, but did switch on, it had been in a toilet by accident, I did mention this and still sold for £30 and the buyer was very happy. Pleased I put the gloves on and picked it out of the poop and bagged it!

  • Excellent thread. Being a bit of an e-bay phobe (what have i got that could possibly sell!!!??) I shall be reading with interest.

    The old tax discs has really surprised me. Are they a collectable item for some people then?

    A car manifold, got more for that than I paid for the engine which came with it on (already had a manifold that was ok)

    I have some old tax discs but would wonder what would be done with them, think I shall not put them on just incase, unless anyone knows why people buy them. I know people used to take the reg number off with thinners and reuse them but with all the current computer systems don't know if that's why they would buy them.
