so ive decided this morning that over the Easter break, im going to have a good clearout of all my horsey stuff - from small things like boots to larger items like buckets, stable and turnout rugs. BUT I need to sell them (need to pay the unfortunate vet bill thats coming soon) and dont know if I can be bothered listing them on ebay what with the extortionate fees with ebay & Paypal.

So should I take them to a local auction centre, advertise in the local free paper, or find a table top sale?

Also does anyone know any table top/equine car boot sales going on in South Yorkshire? im willing to travel to suitable places if I get enough items worth taking.

Are there any local yards that you could type out a list of everything you're selling and pin up on their noticeboard? That seems to work quite well round here :)

Im not far from you,we only have small ponies so probably not be interested in rugs etc as your neddy looks a bit bigger than my tiddlers lol,any stable/yard equipment etc though if you want to PM me a list when you have sorted out I might be interested as I compulsively buy that sort of thing,my OH may not thank you though.

sorry with the roller, ive only got one and dont want to get rid of that.

doubt ill get it all sorted out tomorrow and put online before the free listing days finish and I bet they wont have another when I want to list it - though itll be a mammoth job what with writing the ad, taking the pics and uploading them to the laptop then ebay. arghh why did I have to buy loads of stuff tha I no longer use?

oooh never heard of preloved, will definitely look into that.
but saying that youve just reminded me that Cates forum MMH also has a tack section so will def put it up in there as well.

P.s - just in case anyone wonders - I didnt do this for free advertising of my gear, not that im complaining that a good few of you are interested in stuff :)
