A heads up on quality fursuits being sold or auctioned.
I'm not sure if this would be a good question to ask since it's not entirely about fursuits but rather tails... I've been making yarn tails a lot lately in order to pay for school and was wondering if you knew of any good places to sell them?
Youre good! Its still related^^
Furbuy.com and TheDealersDen.com are the two most trafficked furry auction sites. You could try posting a few there!
From what Ive seen though, selling tails is sort of competitive so I think it would also be worth your while to boost your reputation on art sites like Furaffinity.net and perhaps deviantart.com (and here on tumblr too!). Get your tails out there and show people youre making a quality product^^!
You can of course submit your tails here too! Id be happy to signal boost them!
(Original anon asking for selling tips) Thank you so much for the advice! So it's normal to repost the suit over and over again (with a lower price obviously) if you don't get any buyers the first time around?
Oh, not a problem, its what were here for!
Ive seen it happen plenty of times with a wide variety of suits. Sometimes its just not the right time or right price. There was one suit I saw getting re-listed for a couple of months a while back. It just happens and sometimes It can take a few tries to find that sweet spot with your pricing, or get the right person so see it.
Most of the sales ive seen fail did so because the seller didnt advertise enough or go low enough, but you can definitely have bad luck too.
Any tips on selling a used fursuit? I've seen so many used auctions go without a buyer. My suit is from a decently known maker, in excellent condition, and is a unique species so I feel pretty hopeful about finding a new home for my fursuit. I just want to give it every chance to get noticed by an interested party.
Ooo this ones a toughie. Sorry if this ends up a little long!
Well, for starters, I suggest posting to a site like furbuy.com or thedealersden.com if you havent already (only pick one! posting auctions on more than one site is illegal) and testing the waters there. Both sites get a decent amount of traffic.
A heads up though. When it comes to suits of unique species, they can take a little longer to sell than those of a more common species. Ive seen a lot of well made non-canid suits sit around on furbuy for a while before selling while mediocre canid suits fly off the shelves. I guess what im trying to say is dont lose hope if that happens because despite that fact, theres also people looking for very unique suits and willing to pay a decent amount for them since they are hard to find in the sea of dogs, cats and the like, they just happen to be less common! Its why advertising is pretty key!
For getting the word out I suggest posting to art sites like Furaffinity.net, weasyl.com and tumblr in the fursuit tag saying that its for sale and including your auction link! Youre also more than welcome to submit it here and you can also see if other fursuit blogs will help signal boost it! It will significantly improve your chances of it being seen by someone interested.
Also something else that helps is to be aware of when you post your items. A lot of people get paid at the beginning of the month, so it might be good to post then. Post before big cons, some people might be itching to grab a new suit to wear to a con. Tax returns, holidays Etc. Just try to think of times when people would be more likely to buy something more expensive and plan accordingly!
If you go through those avenues and still have no luck, it might be time to lower your asking price and try again!
I guess my biggest advice is to be patient. It might be disheartening if you have to relist something multiple times and tiring to advertise stuff, but eventually someone will come across it and think its neat!
If anyone has any other helpful advice, please feel free to chime in!
Sorry this was so long, i hope it helps!

The maker is mushimagicsuits. They took these pictures/drew the head shot.
I’ll just copy/paste the given info with a bit of editing:
The head will fit up to a 24” head. It’s roomy, cool and lightweight. It’s fully lined and padded for comfort. It has a static, non moving jaw. It will still comfortably fit smaller heads. ***This head is EXTREMELY comfortable. I have a 24” head and can fit my glasses in there very well. Sight is excellent, though ventilation isn’t amazing. If there’s a breeze it’s great but otherwise it gets stuffy pretty quick.
The hand paws have 4 fingers with sewn, fleece, pawpads. They are one size fits all and simply slip on. They are just over wrist length.
The tail is attached via a wide belt loop that is inserted into the bodysuit for a seamless look.
The feetpaws are made on size ten womens’ shoes. They have outdoor soles. I can get pictures on request.
Can fit slightly larger measurements by a few inches or so. However, I am 5’5”, 170 pounds. My measurements were just about perfect for this suit and the suit is extremely tight on me. It seems like it was made for someone with long legs and a short torso.
The body features a hidden zipper on the front for closure and will fit the following measurements:
Height: 5’4” chest: 42” waist: 38” hips: 41” Inseam: 29” Arm length 22”
I can take pictures on request. This suit is BRAND new, not worn, and in great condition. I would like $800 plus shipping or another fullsuit for it. Canine or feline preferred. Depending on the suit I may pay extra for it! I just want a new suit because I’m really disappointed that I have to sell this one :C
For any buyers interested, I also created an account specifically for this fursuit. It has an unboxing video linked in a journal. There’s no other pictures, but if the buyer wants the account, they can have it. siberiantabby
If I don’t get a buyer/trade over the weekend, I’ll list it on FurBuy on Monday.
