Need to sell some Esties (as well as modern pens)

I am newly retired, and seeking to reduce the amount of my “stuff” to a more reasonable level.  This includes selling a number of modern pens, as I no longer write as much, and a number of Esties I’ve collected over the years.

 

Because the classifieds is broken here, one potential outlet is gone.  Where are some other places?

 

I haven’t sold on eBay in a few years, and that seems more complicated than ever.  Am I correct?
 

Many thanks in advance.

Depending on the number of pens, you might look into getting a table at some upcoming pen show, or finding someone to share the table with (admittedly, I have not done this myself, so I don't know what costs are involved).

I need to get up here more often.  If you want to PM me, I might be interested.   Do you have photos?

You can sell your pens over at fpgeeks.com

 

Some people use Reddit but I don't have any personal experience on that platform.

Rather a late reply, but I do not seem to be here as often these days. I sell on eBay occasionally and it is very straightforward. I have never had an unresolved problem in hundreds of transactions.

Try Reddit's r\Pen_Swap. I've sold and bought from people on that forum. It's a trustworthy place as long as you follow the sub's rules.

“Many boys will bring you flowers. But someday you'll meet a boy who will learn your favorite flower, your favorite song, your favorite sweet. And even if he is too poor to give you any of them, it won't matter because he will have taken the time to know you as no one else does. Only that boy earns your heart."

Chiming in late, but something to keep in mind with online payment methods, the recent changes to US tax laws means you'll get a 1099 from the payment processor (eBay, PayPal, etc.) once you hit $600 in sales.

 

Some people insist on accepting only PayPal Friends and Family to avoid the 1099, but this also removes the buyer protections of PayPal Goods & Services in the event of loss or fraud.
