Selling on eBay

If you have possessions such as antiques, old jewelry, coins, shoes, photography equipment, etc. that you no longer use, consider donating them to the UUC for sale on eBay through our dealer, AJ’s Antiques and Art Gallery in Christiansburg. AJ will research the value of each item and post it on eBay as long as the value of the item exceeds $10. If the value is lower, items will be bundled to achieve that $10 cutoff. Once the item sells, you will receive a receipt for the amount that can be used as a charitable-gift tax deduction. Bring your items on a Sunday and leave them with our Administrator.
