Selling Movies

Am looking for some updated thoughts on selling since I plan to sell some of the collection this Spring. Most titles aren't worth it to sell on Ebay so looking to go to Flea Market.

My pricing ideas
$1/DVD
$3/ Blu ray

Considering breaking off some DVD from Blu am keeping in put in sleeves 2 for $1

On feedback on current selling. I feel collection stuff seems to sit on Marketplace. I already have 4 boxes with around 70 DVDs each ready to sell.

Prices are ok. Don't break up sets. If the case comes with blu/dvd sell it that way; bump the price up by a dollar. $4/Bluray/dvd. Of course most people won't care if something common is in a sleeve for a buck or if a blu case is missing a disc, but any collectors will sneer at a blue case missing a disc , even if it is a dvd.

I've had luck selling at yard sales. If you have other stuff at home that you want to get rid of just have a yard sale. That way you don't have to pay to sell at a flea market.

Re: Selling Movies

I go to a lot of flea markets in the spring/summer/fall, $1/$2 for DVDs and $3/$4 for blu-rays are the prices I generally gravitate towards, although $1 and $3 are always preferable (because I'm a miserly SOB). There is this one guy who has a store set up in one of the buildings. I used to look at his stuff, every once in awhile he'd have something I really wanted for a reasonable price, usually a BD/DVD combo, but when I'd open the case the DVD was always missing, which made the video worth way less to me, and I'd ultimately pass. So, like coyoteblue suggested, keep the combos together. If you have a decent flea market in your area, and a lot of things to sell, you might make out.

Re: Selling Movies

Am not sure if a yard sale would work am in an apartment. On a busy road so maybe I could try to setup in parking lot on a nice day before treking the stuff to flea market. I am moving since my current building is being torn down and am the only one left in the building. The other thing with the flea market was I would not have to advertise and built in audience. Am mostly focused on purging the DVDs over the Blu rays. Started setting up a plex server with DVDs. I guess I won't breakup combos my thought was just keeping a Blu ray from the set but that doesn't help space wise. I don't have all my movies in one place so hard to know whats upgraded to 4k from Blu ray. Might get rid of some of the Dollar Tree Blu ray titles that had digital codes.

How much does it cost to setup at a flea market?

Re: Selling Movies

Around here, prices start at about $23 (no electric) or $24 (w/ electric) for a 15' frontage with a 30' depth space, outside. More if you want in a pavilion with a concrete floor.

Is that a smaller flea market, or one like Trader's World (or the other on across the highway from it)?

Re: Selling Movies

The flea market near me is $20 for outside Saturday or Sunday 7am-5pm with free Friday 10am-2pm. I have done the free Friday and just went with cheap stuff to clear out. It was a nice day but not well attend since most work during those hours. I am going to try setting up in a vacant studio apartment so I can have an indoor sale Saturday. Moving stuff into unit and coworker is letting me borrow some tables.

Re: Selling Movies

Ignoring that obvious bot/spam, where is the best place to sell OOP movies that are actually worth something?
