Have you ever sold anything online? Nikkie Beee Due January 29; 2 kids; Victorville, California 3968 posts

If you have, I need help. I sell on eBay, mostly clothes, shoes ect. I mostly ship out in those bubble wrapped envelopes. Now, my question, I have a brand new diaper bag I want to sell. How the hell am I suppose to ship it out and in what? I don't want it to cost an arm and a leg to ship out cuz I'll never sell it. I don't wanna Craigslist it, well mostly because the people I encounter on there are flakes or really shady. I mean this lady tried to buy something from me, used fake money. I had one of those counterfeit pens (I always take it with me when I do Craigslist deals), it was fake, I told her the money was fake and she took off. Called the cops, gave em the money and the info I had on her... Basically, every time I sell on Craigslist, it's not a good experience. I suppose if I get desperate enough to get rid of it, I could put it on Craigslist, but I'm not there yet.
Here is the diaper bag

That sucks, girl. I've always had awesome experiences with Craigslist (buying and selling). If you just want it out of your hair, I'd either go the Craigslist route (and hope for the best) or sell it at a consignment shop/sale - might not get you a lot, but it'd be helping out another family.

I was thinking about those resale shops and we don't have one near us :?
The closest one is like 35mins away. Ugh, I wish I knew someone pregnant lol I'd just give it to them lol. I think I may be stuck with this.

IDK about your city (county even), but here where i live on facebook there a like a virtual rummage sale page, where pretty much everyone in my county sells things on, and you can either have someone pick up your items that your selling or meet somewhere.

Kind of like Craigslist? That would be pretty cool. Maybe I can find something like that in my area. I'm a look on FB.
Thanks.

Kinda just not as complex....Its pretty much you post the item you are trying to get rid of (pix and price) and who ever likes it will comment on it. Pretty easy
