A Question to start things off  

Hello everyone!  I'm not a big restocker (mostly SSW restocking if anything), but I do have a question for everyone about unbuyables.  How do you go about selling your unbuyables?  I have a few at the moment that I am trying to sell (maybe I'm not trying hard enough?) but I'm not getting very far.  Any suggestions?

(items are 2 techo mps and a magical plushie if that makes a difference)

I haven't bought anything unbuyable from a shop yet, but I have two unbuyable items I'm trying to sell right now - a Sliced Evil Coconut and a Fried Suwek. I put the Suwek up for auction after it sat around in trades for a few days with no offers at all - there's still a day to run on that, so I don't know if I'll shift it that way or not. The coconut attracted two silly trade offers and then nothing. I don't know. I imagine they'll sell eventually but it irritates the hell out of me to have them just sit there, day after day, so expensive and so useless to me. I'm not a very patient person. If this keeps up I may just stick both of them in my shop at 99999NP and have done with it.

There are people on the TP claiming the Suwek is worth several million, but since they're also trying to sell them I take that claim with a big pinch of salt - in the end, an item is worth what you can actually get someone to pay for it.

I'm just about to join neopianads and see if anyone there wants them. That's probably worth a shot.

I had the same kind of problem recently actually. I bought a Speckled Moehog MP from the Magic Shop for about 40K, and I was sooo excited because I've never stocked an unbuyable, or any type of MP at that. ;D But then I remembered that Moehogs aren't very popular, and neither is the speckled paint brush.. so I knew it was going to be hard to sell. It took about a week.. but I made sure it was at least 10 - 15K cheaper than any on the trading post/auctions, and eventually someone offered.

Then I bought a Darigan Aisha Action Figure.. and if I hadn't posted about it in neopian_adults I don't think I would've sold it yet. So yeah.. advertise on LJ communities as well as some Neopets forums if you're brave enough to go there. :P And making sure your unbuyables are the cheapest by a good 10 or 20K also helps out. Hope that helped some. :)
