    Looking to complete your set of Waterford crystal glasses and goblets in the Colleen pattern? (Isn’t everyone?) Look no further! These auctions end this Sunday.

    I’m sorry, is this a _request_ for spam?

    There needs to be another Consumerist show on Jellyfish.

    I know the theme is garage sale, but all of those items are worth less than UPS ground shipping in the continental U.S.

    Ok I’ll bite – here are some useful things we’re getting rid of for cheap. That’s what a garage sale is for, eh?

    Vonage VTech Twin Cordless IP Phones

    HP iPAQ Pocket PC

    Orange Micro USB 2.0 Carbus 4 Port Hub

  6. JKinNYC says:

    Your shipping costs are too high.

    I really wish ebay had a use search filter so I could actually find the garage sale type stuff instead of wading through a couple hundred listings from resellers of chinese junk.

    Ooh, I’ve got one. I just got an iPod classic, and I’m selling my 4G: []

  9. ElizabethD says:

    Great eBay ad copy, Boone! Good disclosure of the iPod’s prior useage and issues,” which increases buyer confidence.

  10. headon says:

    What crap. bite the bullet throw that garbage out

  11. Mary says:

    I’ll be adding tons of stuff to my eBay auctions over the next week. Trying to pay for going back to school for my master’s is not easy!


    Look for some clothes, and lots of “nerd” stuff, anime items, etc.

  12. infinitysnake says:

    Jeez, Ben, don’t they pay you? Seriously, you’d be better off giving that to goodwill and taking the writeoff.

    Lol. Who would spend money on a used Dell standard keyboard. Ick!

  17. bedofnails says:


    Who types 13 words complaining about something they have no interest in?

  18. infinitysnake says:

    @bedofnails: Yourself, apparently. :-P

  19. Zipway says:

    Hmmm… k, I just happen to have something up on eBay so I’ll post it:

    @bedofnails: I’ve been zinged, and I can’t get up!!!

  21. BobbyMike says:

    We’re Power Sellers, so our auctions don’t qualify as “Garage Sale” stuff.

    If there are any hat makers, or costume makers out there though, you might be interested in our vintage (1920s-30s) millinery supplies. All salvaged from a barn in Upstate New York where they had been hidden since the ’50s.
