Topic: Sell your Audio / Video / Misc. Items using ZOOM

We may be the first audio society to provide a forum for a ZOOM style, White Elephant Sale. Traditionally, our December meeting activity is the White Elephant Sale. COVID has closed our customary bargaining interactions and demonstrations. There are two ways to present your items for sale:

1)  Take photos of the items you want to sell. Email them to our ZOOM host, Ken Schwartz. Be sure to include the price, name of the item(s), and a brief description (10-words or less). Please add your telephone number, email, and the estimated local shipping costs or if you prefer, pick up or delivery costs. When Ken displays your items on our screens, you will have the opportunity to speak and describe them.

2)  Take photos of the items you want to sell. Put them into a format on your computer or cell phone that will present (make visible to all) when your ZOOM ‘Share Screen’ button-application is engaged. During your limited Share Screen time, you may choose to present with a PowerPoint application, a movie format, or with your camera aimed at each item for sale. Hold-on to your photos and descriptions. Please follow the directions by including the items outlined in #1 above when the host designates it’s your turn to speak.

The host will unmute each person for his/her presentation, and limited discussions or questions will be permitted. If more information is desired from the seller, you will be directed to contact the seller off-line by email or phone.

The host’s email and phone number are provided below. Please contact him with the questions you will need answered to make an effective presentation of your White Elephant Sale items.
