I'm trying to sell some used saddles (dear god how did I end up with three!!). Nice stuff -- County and Prestige. Where (other than tacktrader.com, which I already did) would you guys recommend? I'm trying to avoid eBay fees, although I have looked into selling it to some resale places.
I'm looking for recommendations for list-it-yourself type places, or any resale places that buy outright, as opposed to those that take on consignment.
(The classified forum here says that you can't sell anything more than $2000, so that leaves one saddle that I couldn't list here.)
I personally sold my saddle on Kijiji which is the Craigslist equivalent here in Canada.
I was told I could have gotten more and sold them faster if I had used Ebay or was willing to ship them. But to avoid shipping costs, ad posting fee's and buyer's who just don't ask the right questions and are unhappy once saddle is received... I just bit the biscuit, waited it out and found local people who are willing to buy.
Took a couple months to sell each of them but it was MUCH less hassle.
I was very resistant to selling my CWD on ebay, but after several months of just word of mouth and an ad on TOC and Bits and Barter, I decided to give it a shot and it sold at the Buy It Now price the very next day. I was thrilled and ebay would be my first choice in the future. I thought the ebay fees were very reasonable too. It was so much easier than letting all these people try my saddle and then waiting for them to make up their minds.
Thanks for everyone's recommendations! I actually just sold one on eBay, I'm going to sell one to MD Tack Exchange, and the third one I'll keep listed on eBay for a while. It's the sort of saddle that not everyone would want, but would be priceless for someone who needs it (County Innovation set up for a narrow shark finned horse).
