Hello Carbuncle community and welcome to Carby's Bazaar:)

Alright guys. Are you sick and tired of paying high AH prices only to have to list the same items 3-4 times or more? I can tell you for sure that I am. While this doesn't bother me so much if it's a low cost item, it really bothers me when I've spent almost 400k of my own gil to repeatedly list an item that just doesn't seem to sell well. I've talked to many people who have also had the same problem, and I think the best resolution might be to advertise such items right here on AK:)

The rules are simple:
If you have an expensive, rare, or hard to auction item, list it here. List the name of the item as well as the desired price and a way to contact the seller. Make one post per item in order to avoid confusion. If your item sells, come back and edit your post such that people know that it is no longer available. I really think this will work if people are willing to take this seriously and edit their posts appropriately:)

Here's an example of a nice format to use for this:

Item for sale:
<Insert item here>

Asking price:
<insert asking price>

Contact:
Joe Schmo, Jane or John Doe
<insert email address here if desired>
or list best way to contact you in game

Sales status:
write SOLD or AVAILABLE

*Feel free to come back and edit your price and information as AH prices and other conditions change.*

Below is a running list below of all of the hard to find, high priced, or otherwise difficult to auction items that you hard-working citizens of Carbuncle have posted. If you are listing such an item, please keep the status of your item posted so I know whether or not it has sold. Please note that all items are listed in alphabetical order and reference the name, date, and time of the advertisement post for each item. If you are interested in any single item listed below, use the reference to find the add by the seller.

Item for sale:
White Steel

Asking price:
Well, since this item can't be sold on the AH, I'm not entirely sure what to ask for this. A ls mate told me he got 250k for his white steel, so I'd like the same for it or at least in that range.

Contact:

Nice idea, but I think people should start Bazaaring in Rolanberry just outside Jeuno. It's been a huge success on some servers, and I've tried it but since it's not a common idea people don't know to come and look. It's a great place to put up the higher-priced items for auction, if only more people used it.

I'm interested in a Golden Hakutaku Eye btw, assuming I don't get one today. I'll pay 100k.

Starting an open air outdoor market /is/ a good idea, it just has to overcome a lot of inertia to get rolling. People have to figure out where a good spot is, bazaar there, get others to do so, generate interest, etc.

A post like this helps generate some market traffic for interested parties on AK - in effect, bazaaring in your livingroom (or computer room or wherever). I dig it. 'til the outdoor bazaar catches on we can use a thread like this to help out.

Besides, maybe since we AK'ers know each other we can get better deals than normal. ^^;;;

This is a good idea, but i think we should all start bazaaring in one of the neighboring zones outside of jeuno like rolanberry, batallia, etc. This eliminates the problem of relisting highpriced items and makes it easier to contact the seller because they're just bazaaring in game :P
I read about other servers having upwards of 50+ people bazaaring outside jeuno to avoid the tax i never understood why we never did on ours. Maybe we should begin to.

:-/ aw good point...

Maybe if it becomes popular enough adn everyone stays in a confined area theres would be plenty of people around everyone bazaaring and you'd see the MPK'er. That sucks tho, forgot about that.

was just gonna say that it might be fun to drag some mobs into the group of bazaars and cast bind on them. hehe. most of them are lvl 1 mules so they'd go down fast.

I wouldn't actually do this, cause i'm not mean like that, but i'd certainly laugh if i saw someone else do it.

Well let's not take this off subject and I am sorry that I am but,

Eka,

This is a great idea

I know it would require you to do some extra work but maybe you could edit the first post with a list things that are being sold and have a "See post-by <poster's name>" to get more information on the items being sold. This way it can be a quick "What is for sale today(week) look".

Also I placed this post under the "Other" locaton in the sticky posted.

Oh one more thing, the price issue. I don't think I'd set a price for item to be X,XXXX+ but more like those rare hard to come by items or ones people are looking for or the high $$ items as well.

Sorry I have nothing to sale today,


Edited, few grammer

Mule name: Silverbullets @ P jeuno near the OF mule (Conotan) & (Galkasan)
Selling: silverbullets omg duhhh!
price: at 17k now, but thinking going down to 16k
cause of the mass making of bullets now a days and prices have droped ><!
edit: price is 16k now!
time: when im afk from comp or 3AM-4PM Central

and good idea about the outside of jeuno, but set ur hp in jeuno for u can hp back when u get mpkd by zoned mobs or if I mpk u cause im bored j/k

and i do special requests also

Thanks Tanzein. I'll do just that. I made this really quick before leaving work the other day, and I think what you stated above is a great idea:) I kind of think this should be used mostly for those rare, expensive items that are hard to find or are hard to sell on the AH. I've tried muling in Rolanberry Fields, but there are too few people out there and not enough people even walk by. While I like the idea of muling in Rolanberry Fields, I don't like the idea of MPKs, and I just don't think there are enough mulers to find what one is looking for. This type of thread just seems so much easier.

I was also thinking of adding a section after the "Items for sale" section regarding rare/hard to find items that people are trying to locate and buy. If there is an item that you need, please post an ad, and I'll add it to the OP. Also, many of the original items I had posted have sold, so feel free to post any new items you guys have laying around. Thanks again:)

I'm currently selling my trusty pair of Marine M Gloves for 1,750,000 G. Yeah, it's above recent AH price history, but they are currently underpriced in my opinion - I remember a time when they sold for 2 million each. Message me if you want to buy them.

Date got me too...

I was reading through these posts and saw someone ask for a Golden Haku eye and would 100k. I was about to post hey guy, I bought mine for 15k, but I'll gladly sell it to you for that lol.

Then talk of starting a bazaar mart in Rolanberry threw the flag...then a Winchild post...then it went all downhill from there.
