I live in Toronto. I sold a Miata on kijiji. I had people I didn't want to meet come to my door. Just nervous that way

Are you in/near Markham by any chance? I'm looking for something to hold my crop gear.

I've bought/sold lots of stuff in Kijiji but always meet in a public place like Starbucks or Tim Hortons. Never at home.

Sell them. Or re-purpose them.

Then, buy more bags.

Very best,

That's what I've done, I use my thinktank airport accelerator as my work suitcase when I'm away, and others for hiking backpacks.

Thanks Howard!
MY Hadley Digital and Hadley Pro are priceless. Forever bags
Followed by my ThinkTank Turnstyle sling, then my Domke bags.

Rest can go

I'm near Toronto Airport. I've found some bags that were too small for my DSLR with grip work well for m43 gear. I have a d300s. crop gear

Used bags are very difficult to sell. Maybe donate them??

I agree, bags are the worst to buy and resell because of the high cost of shipping. Once bought a backpack for $215, didn't use it as much as I wanted to. Tried selling it, ended up selling it for $110. Shipping of bag was $30.

It's not uncommon to see bags sell for less than 50% of the full retail price, no matter how good condition you keep it in. Then factor in $15-40 for shipping based on the size.

I have about 8 bags or so sitting in my closet, so I end up just giving them away to others who may use them.

I got my Tamrac backpack used with just a scratched up outer mesh, the rest was almost new looking. New was $430 at the time at B&H etc.? But used was $100 on ebay. Great bargain, I've bought a couple others in the used market as well.

Meet in a public place - that's where most (but not all) of my Craigslist transactions take place. Do follow your instincts about people!

When I moved, I threw out alot of my bags. Being a total bagaholic, I then went and bought more. Way more than I need but each has a purpose and I intend to keep 'em. :)

That's wonderful. However, I am Canadian and shipping costs are huge. an example:

I bought a model of a Mazda Miata 10 AE from a person in the U S. it cost me $20 dollars. Shipping to me and duty cost $30. Total cost was $50, and the process was a pain in a tender spot.
