    Good idea. I'm wanting one of those too. Maybe I'll let go of se Moped parts or country music CDs. Also have some albums I can let go.

    Money can't buy happiness but it can buy a uke which is basically the same thing.

    Ukes are a lot like potato chips. It's hard to stop with just one!

    It's nice when you have something that has gone out of print that people still want. I once bought a 4-CD set of the scores used in The Twilight Zone for around $25.00. I listened to it once and it wasn't really my thing. It then went out of print and I eventually sold it to someone for $110.00!

    I had the day off today and I ended up spending almost the entire day creating listings on Ebay. It took me from 8:30 this morning until about 4:30 this afternoon (with about an hour for lunch) to create 16 listings. It's a lot of work taking pictures, looking for faults, writing up descriptions and researching items so they can be priced competitively! It's a pretty big pain so I hope it will turn out to be worth it.
    Good luck! Selling eBay take s a lot of preparation, but it can be fun to watch the items progress. When I have an item on eBay, I box it, measure it, and weight it. If someone wants the shipping cost, it's easy enough to look it up online. I send everything Priority Mail.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    I think this Homestead uke was meant to be. Today is my birthday and I made two Ebay sales today which gives me enough money to pay for the uke, shipping and taxes! That's my rationalization and I'm sticking with it!

    Happy Birthday! Those Bonanzas seem like really cool ukes and I'd be tempted to buy one if I was in the market right now. If I lived in MN, I'd feel it was my civic duty to buy one!

    Time is running out on the introductory pricing for the Homestead! The introductory price ends on Dec. 1st. I'm not sure if that means at 12:00 AM tonight or 12:00 AM on the 1st. In either case, time is short! I nearly faltered but I pulled the trigger on mine today!
