Mmmmmm... Hobbitses. Tasty hobbitses.

Let me know when you put them up for sale and I can list them here as well (like I did for Wellinghall) if you want.

I checked ebay daily for about 6 years, but got out of the habit late last year when I was busy with TolkienBooks (and short of money!).

I have been checking on a weekly basis recently. As well as some wide ranging searches based on ones around at TolkienCollector.com, I have about 30 saved searches looking for more specific items.

I sell occasionally, not much of late, but there is a big pile that I need to sell to make some more room - including some nice Hobbits!

Update - the final hammer price was $21,000 so including the 20% buyers premium someone paid a total of $25,200 for the set.

Not a bad price for all three, I think. I hope they end up in a good home.

I check ebay daily (or more often!), buy on average monthly, and sell on average every couple of months. When I do sell, though, I'll often sell several items together.

I also buy and sell non-Tolkien items on ebay.

Your answers here will help me figure out what level of integration with eBay seems appropriate for the site. Do you use eBay a lot for collecting? A little? Buying? Selling? Both? Longer responses here in the forums are useful too!
