    Hi there fellow Yarners,
    I'm looking for some advice from you all!!

    After years of learning to Knit, and only being able to conquer Garter stitch, I got the Crochet bug and am now totally 100% committed to this AWESOME craft!!!

    I have always bought the top end of Knitting Books and Knitting Needles - ALL the needles haven't even been used in their shiny cases, same for all the books I have too!!

    How can I sell ALL my Knitting Books and more importantly ALL my sets of Knitting Needles??

    PLEASE CAN YOU HELP ME OUT??

    Many thanks
    Nicolas

    Ebay. I have a table which I drew up on Numbers where I know what I want for an item and with all the costs etc know what I have to ask. Sold a load of my stuff recently as all new.

    Yes new unused etc unbranded as they did not recognise my business name. I put in the description that all items were new and handmade, or new bought and never used. providing you sell for less than the retail price they should sell.

    I'm not a knitter but as a fellow crafter I prefer to buy new / as new items listed as buy it now on ebay. Saves me trying to win an auction and also gives me a better chance of receiving the items sooner.

    Would suggest that if you do sell on ebay that you ensure a quick turn around from the time the buyer pays to you despatching the item(s). Quick despatch is a universal expectation on ebay.

    If the item is in it's original packaging then you could put that... if you've removed it from the packaging or if you bought it without packaging then don't do that.

    Honestly, I wouldn't add those words in the listing title. You only have 80 characters and nobody searches for 'brand new' so use the title wisely and add the type of words buyers might want to be searching for.. i.e. the knitting needle size, brand, number you're selling etc.

    You have an option to select 'new' when you create the listing and buyers can filter their search using this option.
