I've bought a few flashes and I've got a ton of spare parts like reflectors, cords, and various other bits. Are they worth anything? Should I even bother putting them up on eBay? I'd feel lousy just throwing them out if they could actually be of some use to people.

If you don't think you're going to use your parts, by all means put them up on eBay... plenty of people out there need parts, especially the cords... or you could donate them to the needy: put them in an envelope and mail them to me... I'm my own favorite charity. Seriously, even the most obscure part is something SOMEBODY out there wants.

Mostly I have a lot of reflectors. Also some kinda big box like thing. Not sure what it is, but it has round plugs that look like some type of electrical plug. It says "Norman Enterprises" on it. I'll see if I can get a pic up and maybe you folks can help me ID this thing so I can sell it properly on eBay.

Here's the box thingy

You can also just put them all in a box and send them to Bill Cress (flashbulbs.com) and be done with it. He knows what everything is; send him mail and ask what for an offer -- it'll probably at least cover postage, but presumably you've already gotten the value out of the items you bought already.
