      Depending on the type of beads, you could give them to a school or a charity shop, but if you want to get some money back, try ebay, although I've been told sales have been down over the last 4 to 5 months. You'd have to put a low starting price.

        If you don't want any money then try Freecycle. Have you thought about Etsy - I think they allow you to sell craft supplies on there so it might be worth checking them out.

          The normally accepted way is to put them in a jiffy bag and post them to any male beaders on the forum.....................oh wait..............that's me then!

              There's a fairly new site Tazbar, on the same lines as E-bay but better pricing.

                If you're not looking to recoup any money, I have contact details for a lady who makes jewellery out of donated beads that she then sells for charity - can't recall which charity but if you're interested I can send you her info.
