for sale

So what are the rules for mentioning anything for sale? I bought something at a LBS for a very good price. Something hard to find. Am I allowed to mention the item, shop name and email. I asked the shop, they said post away. And what about if I want to sell something?

If you look around a bit, you'll see there is a "For Sale" subforum on this site. Rules are even listed.

So ask if the shop owner considers the essentially advertising fee, to be mentioned here worth it .

If you know of a deal, post it. Why not?

If you want to sell something, pay the site and list it in the for sale subforum.
