I've been trying to figure out how to make $2000 dollars within a couple weeks and have been going through an inventory of all the stuff I've collected over the years.
The reason I need $2000 dollars is for a deposit/closing costs on a house. I found a lovely house in Saskatchewan near where my grandparents live and I really want to get it. Even more than owning stuff.
If I sell most of my items of value I should be able to pull though. I was looking through my stuff and I have a ridiculous amount of THINGS that are worth something.
I have -
6 Anime Cels -
1 Trigun, 1 Sailor Neptune, 4 Gundam Wing, including a Second Opening Wufei cel I paid 300 dollars for once upon a time.
300 dollars worth of coins, including at least 50 dollars in British Pounds. (Does anyone plan to travel to London any time soon?) scores of obsolete French Francs, lots of Japanese Yen, about 10 Hong Kong dollars, about 6 dollars in Euros, plus coins from nearly every country in Europe from pre-Euro days. If anyone wants some of these please please let me know, I have tons.
About 40 TMNT comic doubles
450 MLP, some of which I've already put up on E-bay. Included in the remainder are rare ponies like Munchie (about 30), Mimic (about 100), 8 sea ponies (10-15 each) as well as International Ponies and some mail order ponies. Even so, calculating it out, the collection will only net me about 1000, and that’s if they all sell. (Unlikely).
3 Gundam Wing art books from the 1990s I haven't looked at in years.
1 Cartop Carrier (used once! lol)
And, if I'm really desperate -
7 seasons worth of Stargate SG-1, the Gundam Wing DVD box set (offical version), about 30 DragonBall Z DVDs (subtitled uncut), plus other anime DVDs I never watch.
