    Sell savvy people.... advice?

    Hopefully this is in the correct place.

    I have been trying to sell our old saddle pads, covers, pad decorations, and polo wraps from our drill team. We got new saddle blankets this year and changed themes. So now we have these just goin to waste.

    I have everything listed together. And with everything you can make 3 different looks. It doesnt make sense to me to seperate... but would I be better off seperating it to sell? Or keeping all the matching together?

    I have posted them on Ebay 4 times now. Each time lowering the price. While people view them.... No one has bid. The last time I posted them... I had it all marked down to $200. We paid almost $600 for everything new.

    Does anyone have and idea where or how to sell them?

    You'll have a better chance if you separate the items.

    Most people don't want 20 of the same thing, or however many folks you have on the drill team. Plus, if they're paying $200 for something, they'd rather it be one high ticket item instead of a lot of stuff.

    I agree, separate everything but mention in each listing that you have mathing items and a combined shipping rate is available.

    Also, people are looking for good deals on eBay. Pricing things above 50% of their new/retail value will make them hard to sell. You're better off starting the bidding at $0.99 and putting a reasonable reserve on the items.

    My advice is drop them from ebay and try them on Craigslist and see how that goes. So far I have bought every piece of tack I own (Except halters) from craigslist and I am ALWAYS checking for more. I don't know if you have tried it yet, but around here tack goes rather quickly there.

    Thanks for the ideas. So if I seperate it... how would you got about seperating it?
    Saddle pads by themselves, covers by themselves, polos by themselves and decorations by themselves?

    Here is the only pic I have of the stuff on this computer to give you an idea....

    And the details:
    8 Black saddle pads with silver trim, black felt corners for velcro decorations. Sizes: 2-32x30, 3- 36x32, and 3- 30x30. 18 Red stars and 18 blue stars.

    7- red flame slip on covers. Only used 2x. Match the pad sizes.

    14- flame polo wraps.

    I would sell them as individual sets for one horse. That way if a horse crazy little girl comes along, or a barrel racer, trail rider, whomever might get excited about it, they can buy a single set for their horse.

    I'd separate and sell individually. The problem is many people don't have enough money to buy ALL, but lots of people looking for 1 or 2. You can also list on craigslist, tacktrader, and put ads in your local feed/equine stores (if they allow you to do that).
