You know when you pop onto eBay to get your hands on something you need and you’re either a) overwhelmed with images of products kinda, sorta like you’re after, but not quite what you want (damnit, I just want a cover for a Kobo Vox reader! I don’t care about the billionty products available for various sized iProducts that I don’t own! Argh!) or b) you find exactly what you’re after and find it’s coming from somewhere overseas, possibly a place you have no intention of visiting, ever, and you’re either slugged with massive postage fees or you have to wait aaaaaaaages for the boat from China with your goods and you want it NOW!? Yeah, that … I don’t like it either.
Anyhoo, there’s this new mob now online, called Quicksales, whom proudly state that they are “for Australians, by Australians” which, for someone like me who is impatient, time poor and easily frustrated when it comes to this sort of thing, is a bit of a blessing.
You can get your hands on just about anything, both new and used, and having a bit of a peruse around the site, there are quite a lot of bargains online, and with little of the ‘hunting’ oft required when you go Bargain Hunting Shopping.
It’s all there, pretty much.
Fabulous if you’re in need of replacing some household furniture that kids have ruined, and probably will again, so you don’t want to spend up on something brand new. Or you’re redecorating or just want a change without handing over a fortune.
This household is also moving in the next couple of months and we’ve been putting off organising a garage sale for the last 12 months – yep, we’re on a roll! – so was pleased to note that Quicksales have no charge to sell!
There are options to promote your items for ridiculously small fees, but that’s optional only and, beyond that, they don’t slug you for anything. If only they could allocate me several hours (weeks????) or offer some kind of No Time thingo, I’d really be set.
Can anyone do that? Send some more Time my way? Please?
For the small businesses amongst you, you can also set yourself up a little qshop, for as little as $5 per month, and have all the options for your customers to pay you sorted without too much stress at all.
I suspect you may see me on there shortly, offloading stuff so that when we do get organised to move, there’ll be less we have to move … how long can I continue to drag that out for, do you think?
If nothing else, the getting rid of all the excess stuff will bring in a few extra dollars so that this time I can convince hubby to go with the removalist van and not be forced to attempt the move with a 4×6 trailer, two plastic bags, a younger sibling and a rubber band …. right? RIGHT?!
You think I’m joking, don’t you? I’m not … *sigh*
