Hi all.  After going through the sticker shock on what it costs to ship a 35# fan a few states away, I am recovering from sever sticker shock.  It would be nothing to be a $55.00 dollar bill for ship a $35.00 parts fan.  I am nearing "the time I though t about 20+ years ago about thinning the heard seriously.  I don't want to stick Budster with a 100+ antique breeze makers, and I can use some cash...  So, in the interest of staying in the Associations guidelines, Would it be O.K. if I listed them by # a good description of Make, model# and overall condition, with a price and if your interested you can pm me and I will send some pics.  That keeps me from taking a hundred pics of 15 or 20 fans.  I realize it is nice to see a pic with an ad, but this would save some band width too wouldn't it?  I think if I sell like the 6", 8" and 10" fans, it wont break the bank in shipping charges as well.  I been away a while, not trying to stir a fuss, just getting some good fans to some good folks at a reasonable price... as soon as I figure out what that is too nowadays...:wondering: thoughts?  Randy Welch and Stan Good used to do it like that "Back in the Day" I think, Back when I was still trying to score my first BMY.

A price is all that is required per forums:
[color="#000000" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"]"This forum is limited to the discussion of fans and items related to fans.

[color="#000000" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"]* Prices must be posted on all items for sale.  "Make Offer" postings will be removed."
[color="#000000" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"]

Simple as can be.  You're good, just post the fan with enough info that people will know what you have for sale and an asking price.  More details can be filled in later to anyone interested.

I sold one fan during the summer, with your basic approach, Larry-- in part because I am challenged with the photo/computer posting process.  The communication with interested buyers worked out just fine, and the fan was sold.  As was stated above, by posting basic information and the asking price I was in compliance with AFCA rules.
As I was approached by interested parties, I got the pictures of my fan to them.

If you simply post the pics with the ad, it'll save you having to send them multiple times to interested parties. It's quite likely you'll get more than a few requests for each fan.

I was trying to avoid taking and posting 40 - 60 pics of fans no one wants or thinks I want too much for.  I have a 32 Volt  27046 that is a pretty nice restoration I will probably post later.  That will get pics. But I want to sell the smaller fans first.

Thank You Steve and Bill.  If I get more than one request, I'll go by the time stamp in response, as I never deal with two guys on one fan.

Whats a good R&M Peacock fan going for nowadays?:wondering:

One good picture is enough to sell it. It's not a lot of trouble to post one pic per fan. I'd like to see pics of what you are selling... Te small fans are my favorites my I'd like a full frontal shot. I'm not as adept at identifying fans strictly by the numbers.
C'mon... post the pics.

The other part of the BST part is posting a price with the ad.  When I first attempted the idea even ,I imagined, what I should sell them for and according what I saw, I would be giving them away.  It has been a long time since I shopped the market through eBay and the BST and I was accurate.  Fast forward 10 -15 years, this stuff is worth something.  Some more than others.  I am feeling out the market on my own, because I wont, nor cant, make a "Best Offer" posting.  Its not easy selling dependents that have been on your shelf that long.  Someday 17 years from now, you three year fan collecting veterans may be faced with what I am dealing with.  I decided to price them on the high side for a few reasons.  These arnt barn finds from some guy on ebay decides to make $400 on a blue Eskimoe fan with a rusty base.  I restored many of these, rewired all of them if needed at the time and they run and are clean except shelf dust.  If they weren't restored, they are great original shape.  When I can be fair in pricing, I will just post a group photo or four and we can take it from there. Cool?
