Default Anyone interested in Breyers?

I have a bunch I'm going to be selling before I move, is anyone interested in them? I also have three boxed ones, all holiday horses. Wintersong, Della Robbia, and Snow Princess. I'm also not certain how to tell which of the non boxed ones are which model without lots of searching, is there an easy way to look that up?

Put 'em on ebay! I'm ebaying a bunch of my stuff too. You'd be surprised how much you can sell some stuff for. And if they're still in the box you can probably get some good cash for 'em.

Try this site for identification? I have a bunch of smaller ones I'm going to be listing and I'm going to try this too, but I haven't gotten around to looking them up yet...

I discovered I have a plastic Jurassic Park raptor action figure who is worth like $15. THANKS EBAY

I agree with Beanie- put them on Ebay and you'll probably be surprised by what you can get!

I had hundreds of Breyer horses and My Little Pony, and I put a majority of them on Ebay a couple of years ago. I'd like to say I made over $500, and I still have about ~150 combined Breyer/Ponies left.

That site is awesome, thanks Beanie!

How much does eBay take out? I haven't used it for selling before.

You get 50 free listings per month, but ebay takes a chunk of your final value. I can't remember what it is and I THINK it might vary depending on how much your final value is... like if it's more money they take a larger chunk? Paypal will also take a percentage. If you have a scale to weigh your packages, you can buy your postage on ebay and get a discount on post. I just use my food scale if it's a small package.

For me it's worth it regardless of the chunks ebay/Paypal takes. I just sold my entire Ponyville (My Little Pony) collection on ebay a few weeks ago. I sold it for WAY more than I ever would have expected - so way more than I would ever have thought to ask for if I'd sold it on craigslist. More than I would have asked for had I sold it on the MLP message board I belong to. What happened is I listed the entire collection, complete with the original packaging I saved, and made a point in my listings to note that I was selling my entire collection. I had 30-some listings and after all was said and done five total buyers. Three people - collectors - got into a bidding war with each other at the last minute and the prices on a lot of the stuff skyrocketed as a result of the bidding wars. I sent three massive boxes to those three people.
I made $400.
I NEVER would have expected to get that much and there's no way I could have sold it for that much on craigslist. People get caught up in the heat of the moment of bidding, and especially when they're buying a bunch of stuff and combining shipping - they're more likely to dish out a bit more because they would rather get it all together right now.

That's how I paid for Payton's agility entry fees (though as it turns out I should have just pocketed it.)

I still have massive amounts of toys to list too. Stuff from my childhood. Some of it won't go for much, but others will go for surprising amounts. And really, any is better than having it just sitting around when I could sell it and pay my mortgage. And it will almost all definitely sell for more than I would be able to get at a garage sale.

I'd love wintersong but literally can not spend anymore at all till this house closes!

I would try as a big lot on craigslist. I watch for them here and seem to go quick and not reposted. I just hate sending stuff out piece by piece. Although u may get more that way than in one lot.
