GUEST,Wally Macnow eBay listings - Appropriate to post? (21) EBay listings - Appropriate to post? 16 Dec 04

I'm thinning my collection various things including folk music books, CDs and other recordings. And I'm putting the items up on EBAY. My question is: Is it appropriate to let mucatters know what's there?

I ask because it is impossible to list items under all the possible categories to attract all possibly interested parties and I think some of the items will never be found unless you know they're there.

As an example, at the moment I'm auctioning a copy of the Fisk University Jubilee Singers 1872 songbook. I've got it listed under:

Collectibles > Cultures, Ethnicities > Black Americana > Other Black Americana

but it may be of interest to mudcat ethnomusicologists or collectors of black folk music or sacred music. Sometimes I find myself in the position of not wanting be an advertiser on Mudcat but want to let folks know that I've got some unique stuff that's available. How do I do that?
