I would also be interested in a couple if you decide on a price let me know.

If storage is the problem and you don't really want to sell, always think up when it comes to storage. Maybe figure out a way to hang them on a wall. I may have just talked myself out of a cool ground breaker! lol

I think we are all afraid to give you a price for fear we'll offend you. So throw a price out there, if it's to high we'll try and talk you down. If it's to low, well you won't have to worry about a storage problem anymore.

I am going to take pictures of the ones I will be selling. I have to get to ups to see what it's gonna cost for shipping also getting size weight and dimensions. I'm going to put a price on them whwn I get the shipping figured out but I'm gonna say between 50 to 75 (for now not for sure) it's nice to see ppl interested in my work. If all goes well I think I will take orders to do custom stuff

Thank u. And will have the info as soon as I can

Sorry it has been so long sence i posted anything on this. Had some unfortunate bad luck with home problems. But I did go to ups and between the box and shipping cost/packing it was on the higher end of 50 dollars for shipping. Witch I thought was a bit much. Some areas were more. If anyone knows of a better way or ideas any info would be great. Local people around my area came n bought a few. I sold them for 75 and they were expecting alot more than that. I enjoy making these guys but dont plan on getting rich off them. Tho a few people were not happy with the price but to me they r one of a kind and are hand made and alot of time and effort go into these. But I did work with the people who had a problem with the price

Glad to hear you had good luck selling locally! Sad to hear the shipping is so ridiculous.. figured as much between weight and size of box needed.
The corpses are still AWESOME, one of a kind, made in America :D, and worth the money! Maybe a Craig's List listing would be the way to go? You could try a few on here & see if you get any bites....in the end the shipping might end up prohibitive for most. Awww, now I'm sad about Mr. Menacing not coming to live at MY house :(

Shipping is outrageous now, for all items. It sucks because the cost of shipping sometimes is more than the cost of the item being shipped.

That being said, I like your groundbreakers alot; they look great and would be so cool to have in the graveyard on Halloween.

I know you can list them on ebay with "free local pickup," and then shipping cost isn't a factor. You will incur ebay fees if you sell, even if you don't ship.

Ebay has a wider pool of buyers. Just beware that if you take paypal, they recently changed their policy. A buyer can wait 180 days to file a complaint about an item they bought on ebay, and ebay heavily favors the buyer.

Also, if you can wait, late July, August, and September are great times to sell halloween items on ebay. People who are not everyday halloween freaks like us get halloween fever and start buying alot of stuff for the season.

If I were you, I'd put a few up as "Buy It Now" with the price you'd like to get. I don't know if you sell on ebay, but if you don't, beware 2 things: shipping price, and people who have buyer's remorse.

For shipping, box your groundbreaker up with really good packing materials and double box if possible. Use a scale to weigh it. I take items to USPS and weigh them on a scale in the lobby to see how much it weighs.

Then, come home and check the USPS shipping calculator for prices. You can also put that option into your auction! They prospective buyer can enter their zip code during the buying process and pay actual shipping. That way your buyer knows upfront how much the shipping is.

Good luck.
