dvds in your house, making you sad
October 16, 2007 11:32 PM Subscribe
I have approximately 230 dvds I'd like to sell. I have been to some local shops that advertise they buy used dvds, and I keep getting told that no one is buying right now. I'm not looking to get rich, but a little cash would be nice. All are in good condition with the original artwork/cases. (Some we never even opened)
Besides ebay, any suggestions? Has anyone had experience selling large quantities of DVDs to a reliable buyer, either in the San Diego area or online?

I've had some success with ebay (selling small lots, 1-3 at a time), but it's a pain. Before I give up and devote myself to ebaying the rest, I thought I'd do some more research, in case there is an easier way I haven't yet discovered.
I also tried an outfit I found online (mx123
). They seemed too good to be true, so I shipped them a small number as a test, ones that I didn't care much about. When I didn't hear anything after a few weeks I contacted them and they emailed back saying their store had been closed, inventory "seized" and my dvds "should be" returned to me. I'm now wary, understandably, and would prefer to ask here and see if anyone has any recommendations.
