Please do... by the time you get done selling on ebay you are going to be paying around 10-15% of the purchase price back to them for using their site. For my item, which sold at $188.50, I owed ebay $18.59 seller's fees. So if you sell something for $4,000 you are going to be paying well over $400 in seller's fees. Plus, ebay is a headache anymore. If I buy anything from here on out, it'll be from an actual store on ebay--- one with an address and a real person I can talk to. Not some joe-smoe who wants to scam me.
