Auctions Delayed – Still time to buy direct

TzeentchPainted (1) (Large)So, my auctions were delayed today for two basic reasons:

  1. I abide by a set of rules about when I put up auctions, derived from various online sources and previous experiences.  One of these rules is that an auction shouldn’t end on a three day weekend (particularly those where the third day is a Monday).  I didn’t realize this until Saturday night.
  2. I didn’t get quite all of the auctions template properly.  Granted, I got 90% of them done, and could’ve easily finished the last of them, but given #1 above, there didn’t seem like much point to it.  So, long story short, I’m going to wait until next weekend to post.

The good news there is that there’s plenty of time to still sell them direct.  I’d honestly prefer to sell outside of Ebay, because I wind up getting more profit, and you wind up paying less (which is possible because Ebay takes about 13% of the total): even more if the buyer is local to me.  Another good thing there is I can get a guaranteed amount (I always start my ebay auctions at $.01 and watch them rise from there–which sometimes results in selling things for far too little).

Vindicator (2) (Large)So, if you see something you’d like, please feel free to make me an offer.  Since last week, I sold all of the space marine bikes, chaos spawn, the Skullz standard bearer, grey knight terminators, forgeworld chaos rhino upgrades, a chaos rhino, & some screamers.  I’m happy to say that every one of those offers involved no haggling: I just accepted their offer as is.  I’d like to think that shows that I can be reasonable.

In fact, the “no haggling” statement isn’t 100% true.  On three occasions I told the purchasers that they offered me too much money.  That resulted in me leaving $65 on the table that the other parties would’ve been happy to give me.  Still, I believe I did the right thing.  I justified to them why I thought their offer was high (in one case, solely because he was a friend and I don’t let friends pay that much).

Photos of everything (including the few lots that have already sold) can be found here:
