I have a MAC Picasso Display light

Hello My father passed away and left me a Retro 1984 circa picasso display light....as part of his estate. It is in very good condition considering it is 25 yrs old. Still works. I'd like to sell it to somebody who would appreciate such a collectors item. I don't really want to use E-bay. Do you folks have any suggstions on where I might sell something like this. I am in Austin TX. Are there computer shows or exchanges where people would be looking for something like this? Thanks

eBay has been the best place to sell those. (they have gone for $400-$500 in the past there)

eBay is still probably your best bet, but if you are dead set against it, you can try selling it on Mac-related forums. Unfortunately, for safety reasons, most require a minimum number of posts or a minimum period of membership before you can start posting items for sale. That is true for the marketplace forums on here and on MacNN.com.

If you want, you can try selling it on the 68kmla forums, which has no limit.

Wow! Wish I'd have found this message 2 years ago. I am replying on the VERY slim chance that you never decided what to do with it. I've wanted one of these since 1984. :-)
