I got my hands on a near-complete series of film magazines (1970s-1990s) while doing an internship in college. They're great to have, but I need some extra cash right now. I looked on EBay, and I see a few people selling single issues of this magazine with some success. Is there a market for selling the lot and if so, how much can I expect to make? [more inside]

I've got a ring I'd like to sell. It's 14k white gold, about 7g. It's very simple, and somewhat blemished from wearing it and being clumsy and knocking it about. Where would I get the most money for it, and how can I calculate its raw material value (I know the raw price of gold, but being 14k and white...)?

A friend recently found out she owns a nativity set painted by a local priest who has been convicted of child molestation. As a victim of abuse herself, she wants it out of the house but would prefer to somehow sell it and donate the proceeds to a relevant advocacy group.

I'm selling my house myself without an agent. If an agent claiming to be a "buyer's agent" contacts me, tours my house for their client and ends up having their client buy my house, do I have to pay that agent?

Question from a first-time house seller. My wife and I recently bought our second home without having sold the first. Although we and our agent feel that the house for sale is priced extremely reasonably and appropriately, it's been on the market for five months now. We have the financial capacity to continue paying for both houses indefinitely, with no need for a bridge loan, so that's not the issue per se. The question is, however, at what point does this process become an unacceptably bad deal, financially, and how do I calculate that? Or has it passed that point already? In other words, do the past five months of payments on the first house essentially represent money down the drain? Say each monthly payment on the house that hasn't sold (including mortgage, taxes, insurance, and utilities) comes to $2K. Does that effectively mean we might just as well have set the price $10K less five months ago? In which case we should be dropping the price now, and each month from now on, in an effort to stop the bleeding? I don't notice other sellers dropping their prices with every month that goes by, but the fact remains that since we've only owned the house for four years, we're building up practically no equity each month to "recover" when it finally sells. So it seems like the money's just evaporating. Maybe we get to deduct the taxes and interest from our income tax (or maybe not), but even if we do, it seems to me that there has to be a mathematical point at which it becomes pure damage control. And we may already be well past that point. I know we're not the only people who've ever been in the position of carrying two houses for a few months--it must happen all the time--I'm just not sure what the conventional wisdom is on handling the situation. Any advice would be appreciated.

Cleaning house, looking to sell books, CDs, toys etc., and I'm LOST. Need advice both specific and general. Is eBay best for books and CDs, or are there other places to get better value? With the 'Net awash in Star Wars paraphernalia, how do I find a price for this elaborate 1998 14" talking Darth Vader? (I've checked books and they're mostly about "vintage" SW toys.) How do I value odd things for my uncle, like this pipe from Germany circa 1890 or earlier, or some Xmas cards circa WWII made by Chinese Xtian nuns in Tsing Tao? Is there a market for historical magazines and newspapers, for example with headlines about the first moon walk? [more inside]
