Ebay works well as a place to 'find' buyers. I often have had previous eBay buyers come back and buy 'more expensive' commissions directly from me, and a lot of them have become my best, repeat costumers.

Setting a 'starting bid' price you can live with, takes the risk out of selling something at a price you'll regret.

Jeremy, you said the auction is an experiment and you'll try three or four. That's the only thing I disagree with, give it a decent shot, try 50 and then decide if its worth it or not. I think you'll do well.

Hey, Jeff.
Thanks for your advice!
Yeah, I may give it more of a shot in the coming week and see how setting a minimum bid works out for me.
I'll factor shipping costs into that price and leave domestic shipping "free" I think.

The pieces may not sell, but at least I won't run the risk of a loss or undervaluing my work. :)
Well-put, man.
