Re: Giving things away for free...

It's not all bad - I offered something free yesterday, got a prompt reply, arranged a time today and the guy turned up right on time and took the item away. :-D

Re: Giving things away for free...

Capitalism rule #1 - if it's free it's crap and you're messing with the very fragile market forces at work.

You see incredible things... On my recent move I found a big guitar case, almost new on the cellar that I had forgot about.
I was ready to throw it away because on the new flat the cellars are small and I didn't needed it. But well I thought it was better to nake it go to somebody who wanted it so I put it for sale on ricardo starting bid 1 CHF, no posting, collect only.

Somebody won it, for 1 CHF from Basel and she wanted it posted. Well then I sent the message to the winner to send round 30 ( postage is 26 for a big package), she answered that was too much, she wanted to pay 27 and complaining why I was asking more.

I told her I was asking simply a round number for that I had to wrap the case in paper to protect it and the carry it to the post etc, a new case that she was getting for real cheap, otherwise she could come home and collect it personally for 1.-

She did come from Basel by train spending more money and wasting time just to collect the case for 1.-
some people have more time than money. with a GA it might have cost her nothing and she could make a trip of it...
