if your in the  USA "Craigslist' is a good place to sell most anything.

So many folks buy Wholesale or have joined a Buyersclub, to get discounts, we can buy for less than what most people pay.

Its hard to sell here.

This forum, there is a Swap Where folks swap what they have in excess to something they need.

Good luck

The best place to sell beading supplies, is on a site that sells handmade items  - Etsy.  And it's cheap to sell there.  The placement fee for one item is 20 cents - for 4 months!  There is no monthly storefront fee, and they take a 3 1/2 percent commission on what sells.  Etsy is the very best affordable place to have an on-line presence for selling beads!

If there's a beading society in your area, join it.  These members are forever swapping and selling supplies one another.  And, as an added benefit, you get to meet a bunch of like-minded individuals who have a plethora of ideas and techniques to share along with beads and supplies.

I would suggest etsy or ebay.  Etsy is most popular with jewelry and supplies and listings only cost .20.  However, LOTS of people are selling supplies on etsy.  If you only have a handful of things to sell, I would try ebay or on a forum like this (in the proper section).

Ebay is a good idea too because you get 50 free auctions a month.  You can start the auction at whatever price you want and also have a "buy it now" price so people can purchase right away if they want to.  

I don't think craigslist would work... but i'm not 100% sure as it is different in every area.  In my area craigslist is more for cars, furniture, etc at cheap prices.

Make sure you take clear pictures and describe the items well so people will take interest :)

I suggest Etsy, too!  That's where I get pretty much all of my supplies now!

I agree.  I think Etsy is a great place to purchase supplies.
