My Urban Auctioneer


A reader mentioned that they owed her 6 bucks. Wonder if they owe other people money as well? Their website is still up, and they have a few live auctions on eBay. No word on whether they’re moving or permanently closed.

Now there’s a much easier way to sell on ebay! Just drop off your stuff at our store and gain instant access to the 105 million registered eBay users. Plus, our staff of experienced eBay sellers will sell your stuff at the right price, whether you’re an individual seller, a small business, or a nonprofit organization.

Why would you need a store to put something on ebay for you?

I hear this is going to be a CraigsList store now.

This is what happens when you take a joke from the movie “40 Year Old Virgin” too seriously.

Re: 1. homeworld, Some of us don’t have the time/inclination for handling all the eBay details. You may know, there are sophisticated strategies around eBay auctions. Especially depending upon what you’re selling.

As an antiques dealer, trying to ply my wares effectively, I’ve had eBay brokers for years, b/c I don’t want to deal w/all the details. I just want the goods sold & $$ in my pocket. So, I’ve been glad to let someone else handle the mundane aspects & give them a cut.

But obviously, eBay has been much more of a buyer’s market for quite some time, so the seller’s agent has less profit.

I hear, through the grapevine, that Urban Auctioneers has moved its operation to its warehouse. So if you know where that is, you might know how to reach them, for anyone w/outstanding items to be picked up or any outstanding $$ owed.

Exactly, Tama, why would you need a store for that? The broker or whoever could run the business out of your house.
