In answer to your question, yes I DO intend to put “fu” on the end of absolutely everything.
Ebay, as I suspect you already know, is a wonderful shiny treasure trove of relatively cheap stuff. It is also far and away the best place to sell a lot of things, including jewellery. (CJ and I investigated secondhand jewellers, Gold Buyers, and Cash Converters, and found they tend to buy things at less than 10% of the value.) On the down side, ebay listings can also cost quite a bit.
I’ve now sold most of my grandmother’s $12,000 stash of glittering treasure for between 30 and 50% of the official value. Most recently, I sold these two beauties:
Which is awesome. The second is a black diamond (a substance that apparently comes from space and is found in only two areas of Earth) worth $2400 – which, let’s face it, looks like not-very-pretty glass. So I was heartily glad to see it go. Also, ya know, I got money for it (hence recently getting out of debt).
I still have a few things listed, but if they don’t sell they’ll make some beautiful heirlooms.
