Stuff I’d Barter For

Years ago, I use to subscribe to the mantra of “He who has the most toys, WINS!” As have gotten older, I’ve realized that I have way too much stuff for me to be able to maintain. I am in the process of reducing the toys by about 2/3s.

To see the stuff I’m currently selling, look to the Navbar for “For Sale, and a mouseover will show sub categories, and a mouseover that will show the detail pages of actual items.

While I’d would much rather convert it to cash, I realize I could be passing up on good deals with that stringent of a demand. So I’ve come up with a list of the few items I’m interested on, and might consider as part of a trade. I’m in Beasley, TX, which is about 35 miles SW of Houston, Texas. A couple of things to keep in mind when wanting to barter for stuff I have:

  • I have way too much stuff, I and my goal is to reduce my footprint of stuff for an easier and less complicated life – not increase or just change the stuff I have. I have to really see a lot of value to motivate me to be involved in a barter.
  • I’m not a stupid man. Please don’t insult my intelligence with a stupid offer.
  • I am not a trusting man. For better than 60 years people have tried to separate me from my stuff with lies and fraud. I’m not an easy mark, I know most of the scams, and I’ll research and verify to the ends of the Earth. Don’t waste either of our time, as you’ll only piss me off and I’ll feel compelled to make an example of you.

So if the above is understood, I might be interested in the below, if I see it representing a better deal than just cash.

Professional Paint and Body Man
