To the conspiracy theorists among you, this post may look like an attempt to slip in a commercial message. Heaven forfend! It's a genuine request for information. (Although if you ARE interested in buying... :-)
I have a large quantity of electronic parts: discretes, ICs, connectors, cabling, tools, etc. etc. left over from a business. This was a retail store specializing in electronic stuff; kinda what we all wish RS would be. Anyway, I had to close the store and have had the leftover inventory squirreled about the house for several years.
Now we're moving to a smaller house and this stuff simply has to be gone.
Some time ago, I listed a few lots on eBay. A couple of things brought decent money but most of the bids were ridiculously low. For example, a60-drawer cabinet filled with IC chips drew a single bid of less than the price of the empty cabinet.
At this point my main goal is to get this stuff into the hands of somebody who will appreciate it. But I'd still like to get a fair price for it if possible. (Plan B is to donate it to the local community college) So, does anybody have suggestions on how to broker this mess? It's all boxed up, but not really boxed in a UPS-able way, plus it would fill a UPS truck or two. So the best thing would be, I guess, to find somebody local (Chicago) who can come over and load it up.
