Back when we moved from Seattle to Ithaca, NY, we tried selling some items on eBay, and although it wasn’t terribly difficult to set up an auction or two, it quickly became clear that working through eBay’s Web-based interface required more effort than we were willing to expend on a regular basis. Now, however, there’s no need to suffer through an awkward Web-based interface, and the next time I think of selling something on eBay, I plan to try GarageSale, from iwascoding.com. Put simply, GarageSale is a full Mac OS X application that acts as a front-end for people posting auctions on eBay. It integrates with iPhoto for pictures, offers real text-editing tools, lets you create and use templates for your auctions, and helps you track your auctions after the fact.
Because of the holiday break, you can enter through 03-Jan-05; we’ll announce the winners that week and in the following issue of TidBITS.
