For sale: sold

I decided to try craigslist to sell a few things.  The few things I have listed have not had any queries to my inbox yet, but I did sell a couple other things by finding people who WANTED the items I had planned on listing, and emailing them first.

We had two first generation iPhones to sell, since we had upgraded to the 3G versions and no longer had any need for the old ones.

The first one I sold was mine, which was only a few months “old” – it had replaced my original unit in June just before my year warranty was up, when the lower fourth of the screen no longer registered any touches aside from the slide bar to open the screen.  Apple replaced it without any questions.  So, I was able to get $200 selling that one.

The second one I am selling (I am making arrangements to sell it today), is my husband’s.  It is in near pristine condition since he always kept his in a carrying case.  But, since it is the original one we bought, I am selling it for $150.  I just hope it doesn’t have the same issues later that my original one had, because now it is past warranty and I am not sure Apple would exchange it if a different person brings it in, since it is still registered under our name.  At least not without cost since it is past warranty, anyway.  Let’s just knock on wood and hope this one won’t fall to the same weird issue mine did.

Anyway, this money is going to be our food & grocery money for the week.  I just wish the other stuff would sell, because those items would net us another $700 (an above ground pool that needs a liner, new hoses & seals, and our old nordic track treadmill).  Being that we are approaching the end of summer, I would wager that we may not get any nibbles for the pool, unless someone just wants to buy it to have it sitting waiting for next summer before setting it up.  But I posted it anyway, just in case there IS someone out there like that.  We’ll see.

    I can relate! I still have a treadmill that I am trying to sell and have been having garage sales to sell things I don’t need just to pay the bills! We don’t have craigslist here-too far out in the sticks!
