Selling on Ebay?

I am getting ready to sell my house and am beginning to clean out stuff. My daughter has a box of brand new army clothes (she was discharged for medical reasons) she bought for her officers training but were too big.

Is eBay and OK place to sell them? Any other suggestions? I just want to get rid of them but because they are brand new (still in plastic, with tags) I don't want to just but them in a charity bin.

My wife and kids sell quite a bit of clothing and other household things on Facebook. You avoid the fees and most buyers are usually local or close by so you don't have to worry about shipping. On Ebay you would probably have to set up a paypal account to be able to make payments easier and there are fees associated with that too.

I did quite a lot of selling on eBay a few years ago, but I felt like it was too much hassle, as you had to work out what to charge for postage, so you weren't out of pocket (I made that mistake a couple of times and learnt) and then there was the pressure of getting things posted out quickly, so you didn't get bad reviews, so I gave up with it. Now I only buy on eBay.

Michael,

Thanks. I will look into Facebook I know my office neighbor used it when she moved. My goal is to get rid of stuff more than make money but it is brand new and I don't want it to end up as rags.

Do you have an Army-Navy surplus store near you? You might be able to sell them there on consignment. Is there any of her friends still in the Army that might get some use from them that she might sell to at a discount?

Our dry cleaners also sells things on consignment as well.

I'm aware you won't get full value from the items going the consignment route, but if you have to pay any fees you won't either.

Good luck.

Thank you Nana Tink. I haven't been able to post but spoke to "Army barracks" and they are not only interested in the new stuff I have but her used (for 6 weeks) stuff and possibly even her never really worn but altered Dress Blues.

I think it will be good to get rid of all the reminders. She is moving on to civilian life and despite applying pretty late, getting lots of civilian interviews, including one at one of her top choices today. Outside of the army she has much more choice. The Army had 7 sites where she could do her residency, there are 30 or so in New England where she wants to stay. She has gotten 18 interviews, cancelled a few and withdrawn her application to programs that really don't interest her.

Although residencies pay much better these days (the Army pay was about 20K more and also provided a stipend for housing), primary care is not a big money specialty. It is was she loves though.
