Sounds good man. If you want to tap the tool junkie market when you put them up you should put a thread up at garage journal and I'm on a couple woodworking forums that will fight over antique planes.

What about shipping? This is all coming from Canada, right? How much am I going to get dinged by shipping? And what about import taxes to the US?

Hi Jim. Yes everything is coming from here in Ontario so there will be shipping charges. Once you have items in your cart, the shipping is automatically calculated based on flat rate charges via the postal service. As for import taxes, there really shouldn't be an issue as all of the products there are sold as 'used'. Any import duties or taxes assessed would be the responsibility of the buyer and paid to the carrier on delivery. It works pretty much the same as if you bought something on ebay.

Update

We now have an eBay store up and running. stores.ebay.ca/Henrys-Stuff

It is growing slowly as we gain experience with eBay, but eventually we will have the entire collection listed there.

One interesting observation: Of the 45 items sold last week on eBay, 40 of them were shipped to the USA! I guess the $0.90 Canadian Dollar is attracting more interest from you American buyers.

Henry's Stuff: The most amazing collection of Stuff in the world!


Light On!

Is it that most Americans aren't aware what princess auto and Canadian tire is?

We have harbour freight which is pretty similar to a lot of the import tool stuff

Perhaps... and yes some of the items are from Princess Auto and Canadian Tire, however I am offering those items at 50% off of the prices at those stores. I have some products from Harbour Freight as well. In fact I just sold a bunch of H.F. tools back to the USA. Again, at prices that they cannot be had for elsewhere.

This weekend was pretty awesome really, with over 40% of my eBay listings selling, generating over $3k in revenue. Now I have to pick, pack and ship it out. So far eBay is the way to go.

Hey James, Glad to hear you are getting some traction on EBAY and had a great weekend. I know the crazy hurdles they are making you have to jump through. Hopefully they will let you boost your product counts soon.
