"An open association like LJN is just a remarkable place. What you pay per year for what you get out of it is astonishing, and speaking personally, LJN has helped guide me from a new start up business into 5 years of profitable trading and I don't think I could have done that without access to the forum and the great contributors to it."

If I get about £2500 for my mower, this is going to be £300! Unfortuanetly, Ebay seems to be everyones first port of call. Does anyone use any other sites to sell and…
