Would you be interested in over 2100 Life Magazines.

One dated 23 Nov 1936 in excellent condition that is worth around $150.00. Many others are valued between $30 and $75 and some between $75 and $120.

The majority of them you could sell for between $3 & $10 each, plus postage.

I only want to hear from people that are really interested in the business. You could more than double, possibly triple your money selling these on line. EBAY ????

I was trying to Sell for $2,500

I will now take $2,000 Final sale price. Payment in cash or cashiers check.

Magazines are located in Folsom, CA.

E-mail me at: camay2327@yahoo.com

(I also have them listed on Craigslist.org)
A VETERAN Whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount "up to and including their life". That is HONOR, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it. -Author unknown-

Not really. It would be a good business if someone has the time to put them on ebay, wrap and send them out.

I just need the room. My daughter is moving back in for awhile.

The Life Magazines are still for sale. I will be putting them on Craigs List again soon.

$2,000 takes them all. A person could tripple their money on these...

What do you base that staement on? Recent ebay sales? If you can sell it for 3x what you are offering here you're either just kidding or you have a ton of old, crappy magazines laying around that nobody really wants and you're trying to find a suc....I mean buyer!

Then ebay is the place to sell them, chances of finding a collector here are slim. People can barely pay their mortgages and selling old magazines seems like a tough sell to me.

Isn't there a store in the new Raley's shopping center on Natoma/Blue Ravine that helps people sell stuff on E-bay? You might be able to get more money that way then listing it on craigslist.

There are ebay stores around that will take your items and sell them for you. They will take their cut of course.

I could sell them on ebay but I just do not want to take the time to do it. I am giving someone else a chance to make money on them. I do have all of these magazines in a database with date, cover sheet data and some of the major articles that are in them. From what I paid for them, I won't be making much.

Maybe I will end up trying to sell them on ebay myself.

Have you already tried antique/collectible stores on Sutter street? Maybe set up a consignment arrangement?
