providing items to sell as you describe. 15% of sale price before
taxes is fine. Give me some parameters as to what you'd accept,
because I live nearby and I don't want to swamp you with carloads of
stuff. If you have items-per-member limits, let me know. I have some
considerations from my end, these may be informative for others to
consider. I have to think about them too, I did not think about this
before your post.
I don't think any one item I'd offer would sell for more than $100, or
be bigger than about a cubic foot. No printers, CRT monitors, desktop
PC's or Macs, common stuff like that - kinda pointless IMHO, they
aren't worth the space they take up or the time spent by my friends
and colleagues to sell them. (Otherwise I'd buy a space and sell them
myself!) Things would be labled, condition noted, and priced.
But they'd probably be items with some mass, as they are harder to
sell with shipping; or they are items you want to see before
purchasing. Probably some books, relevant to computing of course.
Anything I'd provide would be computer-related.
