If you want to try selling on an auction but don\'t want to cough up the cash this might be a good place to get your feet wet. Totalbids do not charge sellers for listing, selling or for having a store on the site. It\'s not the mammoth that is ebay, but it is free.
At the other end of auction sites, AuctionAir sells only luxury items from a small range (usually 30) of lots at any one time. Originally invented by British airways for airline passengers to make the most of in-flight time it is now available to anyone, with all money raised going to a nominated charity. Sealed, silent bids, but non-binding so don't be worried about going bid-crazy.
