    Help selling POP collection FAST

    I need advice, please.

    I need to sell my POP collection as quickly as possible. Going through a divorce and alas, I have nowhere to put it when I move and I really need the cash NOW. So I need to just bite the bullet and sell it. So, just some advice if there is anyone out there willing to give it...

    It is a decent collection. I have figures on the card, loose figures, open playsets, loose playsets. I have some of the more hard to find figures too.

    I am struggling to sell this, as my collection is very important to me. It is a catch 22. I need the money asap. I can put them up on ebay, but that takes a while to actually collect the money. I would prefer my POP pieces go to someone who will actually care about them, not someone who will just buy them to sell them and jack up the price. I don't know, any thoughts?

    Your best bet then would be to take a picture of everything with your asking price and see if there are any takers on the boards here.

    Sorry to hear you have to sell, but I agree that you're best bet to avoid your catch 22 problem is to post here. I'm sure they'll go to a good home. I'm still looking for a few items, so I'll be sure to come and look.

    As for loading pictures, I usually just use the "Attachments" button (the paperclip), which is in the message menu choices when you are drafting your post. It opens a window that helps you upload the file you want to post. You can also just link to the pictures if you have them loaded to a picasa or flickr account already. Good luck.

    Sorry about the delay. Lost the computer in the divorce. Ready to roll now
    Here is a list of the items to give everyone an idea of what needs a home. Hopefully I can find someone willing to buy the collection, as time is a factor. Then maybe that person will have more time to find a home for the things they already have. Either way, here is a list, should be followed by pictures tomorrow.

    I'm interested in the below. Please PM me your price.
    I've found the ORG works better when the seller indicates how much he/she wants. This isn't eBay.

    Thanks!

    I will post pics of the carded figures (and the rest of the collection) tonight. Then PM you a price for the carded figures.

    ICER may be taking the carded figures, but the rest will be available either way. I will post pictures and PM you a quote with and without the carded figures you mentioned. Then after talking to ICER, I'll let you know if those are available. OK?

    JMB410S is considering the loose figures. The animals you listed are available either way, as well as some of the figures that you mentioned. I am sending him a quote tonight, and once I hear from him, I will let you know what is still available. Ok?

    All of the pics are taken. I had a hard time accessing them on this laptop, so I will have to post them from work like I did te other ones.

    Thank you everyone for the messages. When I get home from work, I will sort who is interested in what in the order they contacted me and get with each one with info. I am so happy I came here with my collection instead of Ebay. Just knowing these will be going to people who will care about them as much as I did makes it a little less sad to see them go.

    Loose horses:

    More loose horses:

    LOL, there has to be a better way to do this... but I'm not that computer savvy

    Now for the playsets and larger pieces:

    Enchanta/ Sea Harp (loose Enchanta comes with her box, the other one has never been removed from the box but the box is open:

    Books for sale:

    Book/ Puzzle/ Paper Dolls:

    Original Movie Poster:

    Senoritas!

    *****Before I start breaking this all up, just one last call to see if anyone out there is interested in the lot of carded figures. I was thinking $1300.00 plus shipping.*****


    There are 22 carded figures, including Netossa, Kowl, Shower Power Catra, Flutterina, Perfuma, Peekablue, SweetBee, etc...

    Absolutely! Going to bed now, have to get up early. Have the list almost done in order of request. I just have to finish it up tomorrow and double check to be sure all is correct/fair.
