Just when I got my garage mostly clean…. 🙂
I have a friend who gave me a gift that keeps on giving. Specifically, two Gaylord boxes full of car mirrors. What in the world am I going to do with a half ton of mirrors? List them on eBay, of course. He works with an automotive dismantler who deals with large parts (engines, transmissions, doors, etc.) so the smaller items, like the side view mirrors, are sold in bulk for scrap price. One man’s trash, and all that….So I list them and we split the money for them. While I usually offer free shipping, for accounting purposes, charging actual cost for shipping makes keeping track of everything much easier.
I wasn’t exaggerating about a half ton of mirrors, either. I’ve been steadily listing these. Every mirror has been tested good before being delivered to us.
In the midst of taming the mirror beast, I acquired a 1996 Jeep Cherokee. It’s a Texas vehicle, with relatively little rust. Not to be confused with the Corvette we bought in Texas that ended up being a Michigan car. Anyway, I started parting it out a few days ago. Items will be listed for sale as they come off and are evaluated for condition.
Keep an eye on our eBay store over the next days and weeks to see what we add.
