Clearing A Drop Zone

Need some more space.

Decades’ worth of games, models, notes and associated gubbins has silted up my study to a silly extent. So, in an effort to create some more space, I’ve been thinking about what I really need to keep and what can go, and then made a start on getting the gone stuff out of the way. I’ve also moved around the furniture and generally created chaos as I shuffled everything around.

junk_1Overall, it’s been good so far, and I have a much better idea of where I’m going in terms of future gaming and have better access to what I want to keep. All fun for me and a bit dull for you. What might be of interest is that all this excess stuff has to go somewhere, and that’s largely eBay. Sure, I’ve given away some stuff and sold other bits to various collectors, but the mountain that’s got to go is rather imposing and I only know so many people. You can see one pile above, and more in the corridor below. And that’s not all of it either.

junk_2Of course, eBay has changed a lot since I last used it to sell stuff, so it’s a relearning process. Some of their new format is genuinely helpful, and some is barely-functional dross. Still, you take the rough with the smooth. I think I managed to get a listing up properly, so we’ll see what that looks like tomorrow. Then I can start moving the mountain…

    Going through the same here. Just sold a complete city terrain table on eBay (4×6 foot). I don’t have Warzone anymore and Deadzone needs squares, Made a ton and cleared up an entire shelf for new things. Selling more.

    You need to do it every now and then!

    What name are you selling your items under on eBay if I might ask?

    • Quirkworthy says:

      Quirkworthy. No prize for guessing that one.

      I actually sold the item I’d listed as a test within a few hours, so I assume that means I’m doing it right ;P

      I’ll stick up some more today.

  3. Same situation here. We just moved in a smaller apartment and stuff has to go. I also plan to swap countries soon, so I can only keept the stuff I am really attached to. Do you sell any 15mm Punic War historicals or 28mm Ancient Plastics?

    • Quirkworthy says:

      No PW 15mils. I’m selling the Warlord Imperial Romans (plus some of the Perry Foundry metal ones that scale well with them). Not listed yet, but they’re standing in the queue to go.

    You need all the things! This post is as heretical as they make them!

    Damn if space isn’t the key factor nowadays (for me, at least). So yeah, brave decision, truly.

      Even though this looks like a lot, it’s only a small corner of the stuff I’ve collected over the years. And I’ve had clear outs before. Maybe there’s a Packrats Anonymous I could go to.

    I would general and gladly get a train to where you live and take several of those boxes off your hands! Especially the one labelled Mordheim!
