Yeah, it was a listing where the mother had a long ramble about how the beyblades had scuffed up the bathtub.

Heh, I know exactly what you mean. I can't say what I listed this morning, as it would be easily searchable, but it's pretty close to the bottom of the barrel. For some, it should probably be in a bag marked 'FOR INCINERATION ONLY'.


Ha, well, emboldened by this virtual fist-bump of solidarity on the shite-selling front, here are some bin-worthy things that I’ve sold

*All the noughties band memorabilia from my son’s old bedroom - festival wrist bands, ticket stubs, set lists, flyers. Obviously there’s some collectible stuff in there (Blur, Libertines) but would you think anyone would want a Hot Hot Heat poster or a Reuben set list? They do.

*My horribly worn-out old cycling and running gear. People will buy vintage Nike and nineties cycling jerseys even in unwearable condition.

*Empty bags and boxes. People will pay top dollar for designer packaging but old carrier bags sell, even something like a Tesco Bag for Life if it’s maybe promoting a particular film franchise.

*Corks. Get them from your friends or a restaurant if you don’t drink a lot of non-screw-top wine yourself. Crafters buy them.

I’m lucky enough to be time-rich and I actually quite enjoy selling things people consider unsaleable trash. I realise if I were trying to do this for a living, I’d be earning about 90p an hour so it’s unfeasible as a business model. But for me, it’s free money.

In my old flat we used to throw our corks in to the unused fireplace. I shoved them on ebay when we were moving out (after cleaning off the toenail clippings that I'd also tip in the unused fireplace) and they were bought by someone whose address was Head Electrician of a major London theatre. Always wondered what they were used for.

Empty whisky boxes and perfume bottles go for a bit apparently but never bothered myself.

Always like reading your posts about ebay selling. I'm in a similar position to you, time-rich (but cash-poor) so I'm able to spend time searching and listing stuff. Been doing it about twenty years; I get a buzz from getting stuff to people who will use it, who will enjoy it. A few months back I sold an offcut of a motorcycle seat foam- about 3 and a half feet by one foot, that I found in a skip. Didn't make any profit on it, just didn't want to see it go to landfill when someone could use it.

I've read that crafters like corks and toilet rolls and other stuff. Never seem to have enough of those things to make it worth my while.

My latest wheeze is finding hoovers in skips, and breaking them for parts. Not sure if it's going to pay off. Hope so, it's pretty disgusting cleaning other people's cat crap out of a vacuum tank.

Other stuff I got out of skips lately- sandwich board- on for £20, not sold yet. Pair of cycle shoes, just sold for £22. A thing that looked a bit like a chimney pot, sold for £3. Seem to be always listing something.

I have a memory of selling some questionable stuff, but I can't remember what it was now. Back when I lived in Brighton, and there was easy pickings from skips in the right area.

Today I sold a fox skull that I found in the woods. Cleaned it up, glued the teeth back in and sent the eyes separately in a jiffy bag (joke, obviously... eyes were long gone)

that's fantastic. I love the desperation in the last five words, makes it sound like the thing has somehow become sentient

(and who's to say it hasn't)

The first law of conservation of Stathams means that Statham can neither be created nor destroyed; rather, it can only be transformed or transferred from one form to another.

The ornaments you see in the windows of high street fruit machine arcades have let themselves go.
