The Marketplace is for personal sales, trades, or donations of new or used ceramics-related items owned by the Ceramics Arts Community member involved. Note: Commercial suppliers are not eligible to post items. Items posted by an individual on behalf of a commercial supplier will result in the item being removed and the individual being banned from the Forum.
When in doubt about an item’s suitability, contact a moderator to check before posting a Marketplace thread.
The Marketplace is not a place to sell finished ceramic work.
The Marketplace is not for commercial business, fundraising, nor for selling on behalf of a commercial third party.
The Marketplace is not a place to advertise classes or services.

How to post
Start a new topic within Community Marketplace Forum (You must be a registered forum member to post)
Provide a full description and disclosure of item's condition, including flaws.
Asking price and general location (city, state) of item(s) is required.
Items must be available at the time of posting.
Photos are encouraged. Post photos you would want to see if you were considering to purchase this item.
If you are selling multiple items, you may list them in one post.
Responding to Postings
If you are interested in an item(s) please reply by Personal Message (PM) to the member who wrote the post. It’s up to the member making the post to follow through with the details of shipping, etc.
If the volume of sales is larger than would normally be expected for a member selling off personal equipment/supplies, then the post(s) will be removed at the discretion of the Administration or Moderators.
If you are closing a community studio and have a lot of items to liquidate, please contact a moderator before posting. The moderator will determine whether it is eligible for posting.
Timely Removal of Posts
If and when an item has sold, the member must DELETE the post. In the case of multiple items for sale in a single post, members must mark items sold or delete the item from the post. For example:
SOLD – Brent pottery wheel, great condition, $500
Shimpo slab roller, gently used, $600
In order to keep the Marketplace from being cluttered with out-of-date posts, postings will remain in the forum until they are sold, or for 1 month, whichever comes first. Then, they may be deleted by moderators.
Members may repost items that do not sell initially. They will then be subject to the terms in previous bullet point.
