    I have a ton of kids clothes I would like to sell. I have listed a few outfits on Ebay with no luck. I am now thinking of advertising on Craigs list to see what I can get. I should mention its all gymboree. I love there stuff. I donated everything else. For you ebayers am I better doing a couple outfits in a lot or just 1 at a time?

    I have an eBay store with lots of Gymboree. I find things sell better separately. BUT, things have not been selling very well lately. I guess everyone has been pinching pennies!
    I don't know anything about Craig's list. Sorry.

    I usually sell doll clothes, not kids clothes - but I do buy a lot of gymbo on ebay for DD7 - way more than I'd admit to DH. It's amazing how fast those little amounts add up...:rolleyes1

    I'd list seperate outfits, if that doesn't work well for you timewise, maybe small lots by line.
    You can identify the various clothing lines using http://www.gymbohaven.com/
    Be sure to include the name of line, size and boys or girls in title so people can find your items easier in the search.

    I just sold my son's Halloween costume from last year on Craigslist. I love Craigslist!! I've sold a bunch of things on there. There is no listing fee. It's great. I've found that in this town we live in things take longer to sell because it is smaller. But when I lived in Vegas, I would put things are Craigslist, and it would be gone (and I mean out of the house) within 30-minutes! Price your items right, see what others are selling things for and make sure you put pictures on your ad! Good luck.
