I'll update this post as my inventory changes.

I will only trade with people on this site who post messages, or are patrons.

My terms of sale are - for people with enough money to enjoy luxuries: $3 for the first book, and $1 for each additional book. This covers your postage. For people strapped for cash: 50 cents + postage, and I'll just calculate the postage for you. It's Media Mail, so it's cheap.

Brochures and stapled cookbooks are 25 cents plus postage, but the postage can be $1 or so if it's light enough.

Please be honest about your ability to pay. The higher prices pay for things like gas and packaging materials for the orders for people with less money.

Tracking

I will create a post with your tracking code.

Rant

Also, down with Amazon (and also Ebay, which I happen to like). These companies extract so much in fees: that $5 book on Amazon has over $4 in Amazon fees. (Ebay+Paypal takes around 1 dollar.) If you pay the "expensive" rate, I'll clear almost as much in profit as if I sold on Amazon, while you save around $5. The more you buy per order, the more "profit" I get, believe it or not.

Heads up we changed the parameters so you can sell too! We don't know why we always like putting bizarre rules on everything, we're trying to stop being esoteric weirdos.

Happy selling or swapping!

Is there a way to edit my original post? I'd like to alter it to reflect my inventory. Right now, a lot of it is over at Listia, but, it's expiring and I'll bring it here.

I forgot - the brochures and stapled cookbooks are 25 cents each + postage if it's light enough to fit into a regular envelope. Postage is around $1 depending on the weight. Otherwise, I'll take my chances with Media Mail.
