    Used items

    Hi, I want people to know that they can sell their used items at this place. Do i phrase it as "Sell your used items here" or "We buy used items"?
    Pls advise. TQ!

    Re: Used items

    Both are correct.

    From an advertising point of view, it's usually better to stress the customer rather than the merchant. So "Sell YOUR stuff" may be a more effective sign than "WE buy stuff."

    Well, it depends on whether you actually buy used items or whether "this place" is just a place where sellers and potential buyers can get together.
    And I guess it also depends on who "We" is. Is "We" someone other than the buyer?
