    Selling Stuff-not knives

    I am the owner of a rather larger and valuable Star Wars collection. I'm looking to sell my collection to fund this disgusting addiction I have(guess what it is?) and to jump start my family's move to the coast. Does anyone have any tips or ideas? I have never sold any thing on Ebay, and cataloging and photographing thousands of figures, toys, statues ,etc. is a huge task.
    I recently joined a Star Wars collector's forum(the same layout as kkf) but don't know how well a newbie seller would be recieved.
    Also-will trade Star Wars for knives works too!
    "See... the problem here is that... my little brother, this morning, got his arm caught in the microwave, and uh... my grandmother dropped acid and she freaked out, and hijacked a school bus full of... penguins, so it's kind of a family crisis... so come back later? Great."

    Maybe start selling some lower priced items on the forum to build a positive reputation and then introduce higher priced items

    Great idea - I've always been pleasantly surprised by how much you can make selling locally on CL.

    If you have time, piecing out your collection will get you a bigger return by far--there are countless eBay businesses that just buy up collections, either on eBay or at various trade shows, and then piece them out. It's just a matter of being willing to take the slow train to payday and communicate with a few thousand people.

    If you just need the money now and want to make the most out of it, Auction it.
