Wow! Talk about fast selling!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've been putting off selling my exercise bike. I think I've used it for a combined total of 1 hour since I bought it a few years ago.

It's a great bike, but I'm large and my stomach gets in the way and my legs have to work against it and I tire out within a few minutes so I don't get any benefit from it. Add that to the fact that I broke my foot almost 3 years ago and the pressure of the pedal causes me lots of pain.

So tonight I bit the bullet and took a picture and posted it on an online sales site for my area. The ad has been up for about 1/2 hour and I've already had 2 inquiries. One I applied to by email and the other gave her phone number so I called. Both are interested but I told both that I am selling to the first one who comes to look at it and pays me and that I'm not going to hold it.

So the girl I phoned shoved her husband out the door to come and pick it up now!

So I gave it a quick washing to get rid of the dust.

They're getting a good bike and I'm getting some space back.


This is an excellent site! A year ago I posted my universal gym and it it sold within 4 hours!

I posted it at 8:30 pm and it's been picked up already!

I think I'm going to go through my kitchen and start selling some stuff from there that I don't use, like my waffle maker, ice cream maker, pressure canner, pressure cooker and a gazillion other small kitchen appliances and gadgets!

I get in these moods where I just want to declutter and take back space. My idea of a perfect room is what you see in a show room. Furniture, a few pictures on the wall and clear tables. And my apartment hasn't looked like that in years!

Congrats on selling it so quickly! And the difference between a show room and a real room is someone has lived in a real room! Show rooms have no real life to them!

Congrats! Hey, how much are you selling that pressure canner for? Can I can tomatoes with it? DH bought 12 tomato plants for the two of us so I think we need another solution besides eating tomatoes every day!

That is great you sold it so fast! I wish you lived here because I would have bought it!

A couple of years ago, I won an Xbox at work. My dh played with it about 6-7 months and then got bored with it. I sold some of the games I had bought on Ebay. I had bought the games used. Then I sold the Xbox with one game on Ebay. The person who bought it paid MORE for it used then what it would have gone for NEW!! I found out later that they had stopped selling that model on the Eastcoast and they were very difficult to find!

Goodluck with selling some of your other stuff!

When Neil bought his new jointer earlier this year I took pics of the old one and posted on Craigs list. I got an inquiry within 30 minutes and that person came that evening and bought it!! Other stuff didn't do so well so I depends on the market!!

We should do a TCS rummage sale!! (anyone with the 1st star trek Christmas ornament??)

I just love Craig's List. I bought a Bose sound system and hated it. Put it on Craig's List and got so many hits, I couldn't believe it. Listed it on Saturday and the guy came on Monday to pick it up.

It's a great alternative to Ebay because you are dealing with locals in your own neighborhood.
