Hello, hello! It’s been a while since I’ve had a question to answer, but here we are thanks to a submission from Hector! This is a good one; maybe a lot of you will find it useful.
Q. I was a great fan of visual-kei, but unfortunately I need to sell part of my collection (Moi dix Mois, Malice Mizer, Kaya, etc). All are CD are official records (Not Miya…) Do you know how I can share my sales?
A. Sometimes we just get too much stuff or we lose interest in an old favorite. When that happens, it’s so much better to make another fan happy than to just sell things off to the local pawn shop, right? Luckily, visual kei fans across the globe have set up some very well-known marketplaces where you can sell your things to a large audience! Here are some of my recommended finds:
Visual Kei & J-Rock Sales (1,131 members): https://www.facebook.com/groups/292623217441906
garagesalejapan (9,012 members): http://garagesalejapan.livejournal.com/profile
jrockforsale (1,158 members): http://jrockforsale.livejournal.com/profile
jmusic-sales (658 members): http://jmusic-sales.livejournal.com/profile
Monochrome Heaven Market (6,937 members): http://www.monochrome-heaven.com/forum/26-monochrome-heaven-market/
If you’re going to list your sales on one of these sites, just make sure you read and understand all the rules. It’s also extremely helpful to have a PayPal account, since they make international transactions so much easier!
I hope that helps! Good luck on clearing some shelf space!
