You can list your items on eBay. You can choose to have an auction or set a price for “buy it now”. You can list your items completely free and you pay a small fee if the item sells. The site is pretty easy to figure out if you are new and you can even do everything on your smartphone if you aren’t near a computer.
Have a good old fashioned garage sale or yard sale. Put up flyers in the neighborhood so people know how to find you. Sort all of the items you want to sell, set prices for them, and label them. Make sure you have a cash box with some money in it to make change for customers. Set up everything neatly and be willing to negotiate.
You can set up a group on Facebook where you list items you are selling. Share the group with your friends and invite them to take a look at your items. You can make the group open, private or even secret to protect who sees your posts.
Gather up your like new items and head on over to your nearest consignment store. They will choose the items they are interested in buying from you and offer you a price, usually about 20% to 30% of what they will re-sell it for. Depending on the store policy, you can choose to receive cash or store credit. I almost always take the cash!
Find a local flea market and rent a space (usually $25 a day). You will need a table or rack to display what you are selling. If it is a very hot, sunny day you may want to put up a large umbrella to give you some shade and also a chair. Make sure to have a cash box with money to make change. Set prices on your items on the higher end because you will be negotiating with customers trying to get a better price.
