Selling Harry Potter sets?

Hi all, and thanks for having me.

I have a fairly sized collection of complete Harry Potter sets (Diagon Alley, Hagrids Hut, Knight Bus, The Shrieking Shack, The Burrow as well as some earlier sets such the Forbidden corridor and the Final Challenge) that are all complete, they have only been used for display and to satisfy my completist streak.

Due to moving to a new town, economising on space, and compromising with my Girlfriend I am looking to sell what I can, am I better off doing this as a lot or individually? Is ebay the right place to start? As with most things on ebay, the prices of these sets is inconsistent but I'm not out to sell for really high prices.

Any advice would me much appreciated, many thanks.

Mark

    I know that a lot of people on here are big harry potter fans.

    I'd post a complete list and try to sell them individually... I bet you get some bites on here.

    What country are you based?

    Being a fan, was your profile picture taken of you inside some funky HP movie set? You seem to be lying on your back in a tipped up chair with your legs up in the air. ;-)

    ^ was probably taken with a phone, turned sideways. For some reason phone images with the phone turned are notorious for showing upright in some cases and sideways in others.

    Hi all, thanks for the replies.

    Most of the larger, most recent sets have boxes and instructions.
    From both smoke, pet and child free home. I have looked at some price stuff, but would be keen to bundle sets together etc. if there are any sets you are keen on particularly, please dm me and I can have a look at decent prices etc.

    Thanks again,

    Mark

    If you put a # before the set number it adds a link to the set detail page. I've gone through and done it for you on the last two posts to make it easier for anyone who doesn't know the set numbers off by heart :-)
