I found some things for you

I love to buy Montessori materials.  I also love to buy and play games.  That's really strange to people who know me well, because I'm generally not a big shopper, and I work hard to avoid going to the store.  

But I have found myself with a dilemma:  What do I do with all these supplies?  I don't want to stop getting them, but I don't really need them, and I don't have room to store them.  My husband has been speaking up about it (He's been a really good sport).  I like posting on Pinterest, but I can't get as many new, novel things if some aren't also going out.

So I've been doing some research.  Should I sell them on Etsy (they have to be part of a work)? Should I sell supplies or activities on Montessori_Swap (a great place I just found on Yahoo for buying, selling, and swapping Montessori items)?  Could I find customers on Craigslist?  Can I find  someone who wants lots of good quality, interesting trays, bowls, etc., for one reason or another?

It has been exciting to see people are reading these postings.  I would also like to know what your interests are, so I can better address them.
