I hope it's ok to post this here. I bought a new Kopykake 300 XK projector in 2005. As far as I can remember it has never been used. I am retired now & need to get rid of stuff. My DH suggested I post it on Craigs list since I don't want to get involved with shipping items posted on ebay. In your opinion do you think this is a good idea? I don't think I've ever seen any cake decorating items listed there. I would appreciate your opinion. Thanks.

It's not a bid idea but don't expect to get much for it. Craigslist people are looking the CHEAP; bargins.

That's because it's against the user terms of service to advertise items for sale, barter, etc.

Not true. Craigslist had many different categories where you can post things for sale including used items.

You may be able to post it on Ebay with a local pickup only option. You are really limiting the people who can buy from you though. You can always try it when Ebay has a free listing day so you don't have to post a listing fee it it doesn't sell.

You can post it on Craigslist, but you need a person who is interested in it to happen to find it. Cookware/bakeware supplies can be found under Appliances, General, or Household items.

Go to Craigslist, put in your area and put cookware in the search and you will see other items for sale in your area, that will give you an idea of where to post it.

AND SHE ASKED NOTHING ABOUT POSTING THE ITEM FOR SALE HERE, SHE ASKED IF IT'S OKAY TO ASK ABOUT SELLING THE ITEM ELSEWHERE.

You're right. I was wrong and read her post as saying, "posted HERE".

Sorry.

That's what I get for playing online Scrabble and reading CC at the same time.

You may also want to try contacting local bakeries to see if they are interested in buying it.

Good idea.

Also, if you could contact a local ICES chapter. They may know of someone who'd be interested. You can find chapter rep info at ices.org.
