Best way to sell stuff

I read a lot on here about Ebay, Craig's list..etc..but I don't know what is best.

I have large pieces of furniture I would like to sell. I could also put an add in pennysaver I guess..

what do you think is the best way? I don't know if I feel comfortable having people come to my house and "checking it out". I'm a little paranoid, but in order to sell the stuff I would have no choice.

Sell it on ebay and charge an arm and a leg on shipping. Chat Icon Ebay wont stop you.

Sorry I've been having a bad ebay experience with a seller.

Your local pennysaver may be a good idea but they'll have to come to your home to actually pick up the item

With Craig's list, you could post photos, so only people who are serious and have already seen photos would want to come.

I did have a friend who bought furniture off EBay- but she only looked at things that were posted from people who were local, where she could go and pick it up, so she didn't pay for shipping.

Re: Best way to sell stuff

I realize that I'm not going to ship anything. It's a wall unit entertainment center and a corner fit computer table. These are big items in great shape, just not working with my re-decorating.

I think I may try Craig's list first since it's free. Worried about degenerate people coming to my house that have no interest in the items I'm selling.

I'm a craigslist fan too. We've gotten rid of a ton of things from my grandmother's house from it.
