Opinions on selling beads, please

I'm seriously thinking about getting rid of most of my bead stash. That would probably amount to around 8-10 pounds of them. What I would like some feed back on is how to sell them.

I have a few different types-Matsuno, Toho, Czech, and some Delicas. I have sizes 6, 8, 11, 13 and 15. I'm thinking about bundling some of them up and selling them in bulk-with the containers they are in. I'm thinking about selling them in bulk because I don't really want to take pictures of all those beads. LOL!

Should I bundle them by color or size, or type? I'm just looking for some ideas. One idea I had is seeing how many would fit in the small Express Mail box, and doing it that way. Shipping on all of them at one whack would probably run around $25 or 30 bucks.

Any suggestions are appreciated. Tell me how you buy beads.

As to why I am doing this-I haven't had any design ideas in a long time. My bead muse seems to have gone MIA. I've tried to just bead a small pair of earrings, and nothing worked. I may just be burned out because I've been doing it for so long, but I am probably going to move on to something else.

Edited to add: I have silver lined, transparent, frosted transparent, and a few opaque. I'm also not looking to sell here. I just want your opinions as buyers.

I just use 11s and 11 cuts in mostly opaque colors. I'd group them to size and brand. Beaders that know , will know what you are offering.

I look for color and size personally. Everybody has their own level of pickiness (like "I only buy delicas" or "I only buy opaques" or "I only buy during certain times of the year")

And I'm not saying you're trying to sell here, but I would be interested in knowing what you have.

Sell them on FB under Native Earrinz for Sale or Trade (it's a group).

They sell sets of beads like hotcakes, usually assorted colors of same size in a set...and can add it some odd sizes like big beads or rhinestones...anything used in earring making.
