Selling things  
So I have a couple leather coats to sell on eBay. I'm going through the listings and finding... it's probably cheaper for me to keep these than sell them. Or at least donate them to Goodwill.

One of them, a long suede duster, I love and can hardly bear to give up. But I don't need it. I'm simplifying. But it's sooooooo pretty, and I won't get very much for it. What to do?

Ugh. Any ideas of what to do to get a leather motorcycle jacket sold? Because I haven't worn it in years, and I'd really just like to get rid of it.


It's a damn shame when you look at the stuff you spent good money on, and realize no one else will pay for it.

You can't gift it? Someone you know must want it!

I admire your simplifying! If you love it, keep it - you might wear it on trips or something.

I've never had any problems selling old leather jackets, even ones in slightly dubious condition. I clean them up, condition the leather, and take them to a medium-end consignment shop. A biker jacket is a "classic" item, so even if it's a bit beaten up, it should be saleable.

If you really want to make a statement, post it on http://www.freecycle.org . This way you're not getting money on it but you do know it's going to someone who really wants it and will use it. Plus, they come to you and get it. I'm in love with Freecycle since discovering it yesterday.
