I am a lifelong baker/maker of anything sweet and tasty, a cake decorator, and collector of cake decorating supplies and tools.
I have done it as hobby and a pro, but only do it as a hobby now. I have a great deal of cake pans, books, random tools, supplies,
etc. that I no longer wish to keep. I have tried to sell some items on eBay and Craigslist without much luck.
I realize some things I have are rare (like Wilton's Beveled Edge Cake Pan Set, and Wilton's Hexagon Pan Set).
I have a huge amount of stuff I no longer use (literally enough to open a bakery - even packaging!), so it's a bit overwhelming.
What is the best way to sell these items? (Thanks for the help :)
i don't think there's anywhere to sell them unless you're really lucky and very very diligent --
i got to give mine away to an orphanage in bolivia! -- they teach the kids occupations and also do fund raisers with baked goods -- it feels so good! and my cake deco library i got to give to a local bakery that is a 501c3 -- they hire high risk teens and that felt great too --
it took me years to be able to get rid of it because i was forced to retire due to health -- but i am happy doing my thing of upcycling cigar boxes into treasure boxes -- got my first craft fair coming up in november -- i'm so slow! treasure boxes are a lot like cakes except they don't go stale -- ha!
but i was pro and hobbyist like you -- i had three four ft tall boxes full and a fourth smaller box -- i had all the pans, tips, sugar work equipment etc etc etc etc -- the charity here in the states that supplies the bolivian orphanage regularly flies down there a couple times a year so the shipping was free to me!
i was gonna give a bunch of stuff to a grand niece but it cost as much to ship as it would to buy --
anyhow -- hope you find someone --
best to you
