After having done a couple of this kind of projects and making several changes in the course of the projects, you end up with quite some materials that you never used.
I am such a type of DIY guy. And sometimes I have indeed a lot of materials that I will not use anymore, or at the least the next months or years. Not a big investment usually, but anyway you don't need them and the materials take up space in your storage room, cabinet, shelves or wherever you put the materials.
So I decided a month ago to try to resell the materials to a hardware store. I choose the one where I wanted to buy some new materials for a new project, of which I knew that not so many shops have these on stock or can deliver them at all. It's GPDX, Burgos street, Dagupan. They have quite a comprehensive assortment.
And he trusted me was my sense, not someone who was trying to cheat him.
So I did, displayed the materials on the floor, took some pictures and returned to the shop. After inspecting the photo's he told me he was willing to make an offer and I could bring the materials.
So I did and one of the clerks was ordered to make an inventory and determine for each item the trade in price.
The next day I returned and got the list with the total trade in price he was willing to give me. It was more or less 2.000 pesos and I choose the items I needed for my next project. I only had to pay a few pesos to balance the trade in and new purchase.
