    Hi, everyone! I used to post under the name 'Kase' on this forum. I haven't been here in quite some time now because I've been so busy with the responsibilities that have fell on to my shoulders, it's overwhelming. well the reason I'm back is because I need your help! I have inherited my grandfathers 30+ year Diecast & Nascar collection after he passed away along with a bunch of other stuff that was left to me to sell off.

    I'm working on starting a blog that solely caters to die cast models. I was wondering if anyone could help give me some advice on how I could target collectors? what should I do to market my products online? any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Risto

    Real cars or toy cars?

    Edit:
    If it's toy car then you should scrape websites of car enthusiasts.
    Send them an email offering your toy car collection.

    Or you can go the Craigslist route and do locally.

    eBay is the best place to sell your diecast collection. Try to price out other similar offerings or buy a book to price it right. A lot of antiques, including old diecast products, sell quite well on eBay. Good luck.
