Have a 20th Century Christmas!

Gift-giving is all about the other person, so the propriety of giving a used gift for Christmas is really in the eye of the recipient for the right person.

Does your gift recipient ardently believes in reusing and re-purposing items, and/or loves vintage items? These are some clues a thoughtfully selected and useful pre-owned gift would be appreciated.

Search for vintage items on eBay, visit the pre-christmas jumble sales or try the all year round car boot fares. These are just a few options to help make your Christmas shopping experience far more interesting, while saving you money!

Flogit4u would like to take this opportunity to wish all it’s customers and business partners a very happy Christmas!

FLOG IT 4 ALL DOGS MATTER! – A Message from Jack the Staffador

 

Dear People,

Over 400 dogs are being found abandoned on our streets every day and there are currently over a million dogs in shelters throughout the UK desperate to find a loving home.

I was one of the lucky ones; I was hours away from being put to sleep, but now I have a home, thanks to All Dogs Matter (http://alldogsmatter.co.uk).

Help raise funds for ADM by donating unwanted goods such as designer clothing, jewellery, collectables, antiques, audio visual, electronics and technology.

Your items will be auctioned on eBay with profits going directly to All Dogs Matter.

Simply bring your goods into Flogit4u’s store during opening hours – Monday to Friday 10am to 5.30pm, Saturday 10.30am to 4.30pm.

Love and licks,
Jack – 2 year old Staffordshire Labrador cross

Happy 15th Birthday eBay

This week celebrates 15 years of eBay. (can you remember a time without it? us neither!)

With more than 19 Million British visitors each month (which is well above 1/3 of the UK adult population) we wonder what your best eBay bargain and your worst has been.

Check out our current favourite story in the news at the moment. #LoomBandMadness

Just remember that with the good comes the headache and as we all know, selling online is hard work….

….So give Flogit4u a call, sit back and let us do the rest (we are the experts after all).

All together now…….

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you,

Happy Birthday dearest eBay, Happy Birthday to you! Hip hip hoorah!!!

Flogit4u Rescue Service

Recently we were contacted by a client, we’ll call him Mr X. He was moving abroad and wanted to sell everything he couldn’t carry with him.  He had already arranged to use another company who let him down in the last hour…literally.

He telephoned us, frantic as you’d imagine, and we were able to offer him a solution. Which we have coined ‘Flogit4u Rescue Service’ :-)

We quickly arranged for a storage company to take all the items, and got him a very good rate too! Then we visited the unit, photographed & detailed everything and got it on-line. We ran the auctions, arranged all the collections and now…just a few weeks later, Mr X is sunning himself in California, a few thousand pounds better off and (in his words) as stress-free as you can be moving continents!

So if you find yourself in a jam, or better still – want to avoid one! Get in touch!

The weirdest things sold on eBay!

Here are some recent things sold on eBay that made us chuckle:

A man sold a rubber duck on eBay, which wouldn’t have been so weird if it hadn’t been for the fact that this rubber duck was supposedly haunted. The man claimed that his toddler hated the duck and also said that the duck had bitten him. So of course, the first thing you think to do after being bit by a rubber duck is to sell it on eBay.

Another?

The description of the sale was that the seller was getting too old for his imaginary friend. Not only is this one of the weirdest things to be sold on eBay, but it actually sold for a few thousand dollars, which is what makes it even more weird. Not only could this friend not be seen, but he also could not be heard or touched, so it’s crazy to think that someone would actually pay money for it.

May the best team win the #worldcup 2014

With the excitement surrounding the #worldcup – it’s a good time to remember how important unity is.

Brasil are hosting the tournament and we are of course all hoping to watch England have success.

Everyone at Flogit4u HQ has entered a sweepstake for a little fun so we are all crossing our fingers for our various picks.

May the best team win…..

St. George’s Day

St. George is the patron saint of England. His emblem, a red cross on a white background, is the flag of England, and part of the British flag.

St George’s emblem was adopted by Richard The Lion Heart and brought to England in the 12th century. The king’s soldiers wore it on their tunics to avoid confusion in battle.

Happy St. George’s Day
