    Default Selling online

    Has anyone ever had success selling an item online?

    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    I've never sold anything online, Margaret. TBH, I usually give things away or take them to the charity shop. But, I do know others that sell online, a friends daughter makes a very good living out of it. - She buys for pennies at boot fairs then resells on ebay.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    I asked because I am selling a piano. But worried about having to say where I live.

    It's always a risk, Margaret. Could you maybe sell to a local dealer or get someone like the Hasely antique people to take it and sell on commission?

    I used to worry similarly when selling cars. I never had any problems, but I've always had big dogs.

    Hasely antiques? are they online only?

    Margaret, my apologies, it's Hatton Antiques. Looks like it might have changed hands, but possibly still worth a call?

    Linky thing

    Might also be worth looking around the Warwick shops too.

    The last piano we sold was over 40 years ago. It was my granddads and there was very little by way of interest. IIRC, we let it go to a Nuneaton dealer.
