Leftovers for E-Bay Listings

"Leftovers" for E-Bay Listings
(Week of May 4-8, 2012)

      Sometimes an E-Bayer, like myself will bid on items that you feel will re-sell easily. Unfortunately, that doesn't always happen.  As well,  the period of April-August seems to also be a slowdown. The  slowdown could be from the US recession, or the warmer weather  where people have more things to do outdoors. As well, I'm sure there are other reasons.

     I've had these toys in several small boxes, but haven't been able to sell them individually or sometimes as a group of 3 or 4. 

     So today, I decided to simply group them together in numbers of 6-15, price them low, and see whether they will sell or not. I'm not going to bother  identifying them because I;m going to try and gear the description to buyers who will re-sell these items rather than collect them. If a collector is interested, then he or she will know what the items are.

     I'm only listing the large groups of photos, because I can;t afford to add 3-12 photos per listing. I'll be directing people here, to my blog, to look at what I've labelled the "sub-groups". These sub-groupings, are simply more-detailed images of less numbers of toys. It's easier to see the finer detail this way.

I'll add the E-Bay listing numbers later, but first I wanted to make sure that these photos below were added here to this instalment of my blog.
