I'm just organising myself to advertise some furniture on All Classifieds, but have been brought up a bit short on the fee for including a photo with the ad. $15! My experience with online trades is that without a photo, you might as well not bother...but at that price, some of my pieces aren't worth advertising at all.
True to the spirit of thrifting, I don't want to make a massive profit. I want to move some things along to people who appreciate them, and in so doing create some space for the new things that I'll inevitably pick up in the future. I like the idea of selling local too.
Should I be a crank and write to allclassifieds.com.au suggesting that it would make good business sense to reduce the price of photo ads and thus attract more customers? At $5 a photo ad, I know I'd list a lot more. And, hopefully, all the vast collective of stuff in greater Canberra would rotate through the population a bit better too.
On a happier note, I went to Mitchell Vinnies today and did very well. It's quite likely I cross paths in op shops with other bloggers from 'I Op' all the time! Is there an secret sign to look out for?
