Since I had a few comments on “What do you sell on eBay” I thought that I would list some of the things that i sell:
Broken Digital Cameras… surprisingly enough cameras that don’t work DO get some money back, not a lot but the parts are worth anywhere from $10-$50. This way I can recoup the cost of some broken cameras.
New Digital Cameras… if I see a great deal on a new digital camera, I will get one and then resell it. The margin on these items is small, so it’s not really worth mine (or your) time to do this.
Collectors Items… I have been selling off my cartoon glasses (Peanuts, Muppets) that take up space. I’ve gotten anywhere from $0.25 to $3.00 a glass on them. It works best if you sell in sets, makes it more attractive. I also have 2 barbie dolls right now up for auction (Ken and Barbie Ice Capades)
Books… if there is a specialty book, I will sell this on eBay rather than seeing what I can get for it at a book seller. I anticipate that someone out there will want a particular book more than a book seller who needs their margin to be enough to buy the book. Currently, I have the 1962 version of the Culinary Arts Encyclopedic Cookbook on there.
I am looking for a good niche to sell… it has to be something that moves quickly and everybody needs. I am thinking that electronics is great but the volatility is great to really make any money. I’ve been thinking about Toys, Clothes, shoes, Lingerie…
Closer to Christmas I am going to start unloading alot of my older Hallmark ornaments and other Christmas stuff that takes up space. I do have some Star Wars toys that I might be able to get something for, but not sure. I do have an original Megatron (Transformer) in the original box that could probably fetch a couple hundred dollars.
So if you want to see what I am selling, check me out on eBay under interst3llar!
