After the very successful eBay auction, which means we now have enough money to start the SM cavalier collection scheme, I was wondering if any one out there would like to join in an 'eBay Challenge'
Rules are simple......Choose something you no longer want ( it does not have to be in any way dog related ) & sell it on eBay.......If it does not sell you have lost a few pence in listing fees......If you win, you donate the money to the scheme.
If you have never sold anything on eBay before, then just think, now could be your chance to learn.
I would like to think this could be light hearted fun and that all members, wherever they are in the world, can join in.
Teasing each other is obligatory.
Get your husband, sons, daughters, grandchildren to add something of their own. Perhaps we can have a winner declared for each of them?
I'm sure we can think up some categories that can be won.....Most bids.... most useless object listed....... the most useless object actually sold.....Best reason for choosing particular item....Best family effort etc.
Come on, help me out here..... I can't do all the thinking myself.
Perhaps Karlin will consider sending the overall best effort ( not always the same as the most money raised ) a lollipop or some other exotic prize.
I am now selling things on eBay regularly as a fund raising exercise, but for this Grand Challenge I am going to add a second hand cassette of 'Christmas Carols from Guildford Cathedral'.
I have no idea when we got it, but in a family that has had CD players for many years it must be quite old.
The carols are the lovely traditional ones, Silent Night, While Shepherds Watched, Good King Wencelas etc.
I think I will put the starting price at 99p but make the postage & packing free ( it will cost under 50p second class ) So I only need one bid to make a profit of 49p........ Well it all adds up!
I'll put it on for 7 days.
There is not that much demand for cassette tapes now, but it is seasonal.
Does anyone want to make a guess whether it will sell or not?
Hope some of you will find time to join in.
Edited to add details of how to send monies raised:
