Today I’m going to do things a little differently with this particular “What Sells Well Wednesdays” post. Normally I would re-cap an item that sold from the previous week either on eBay or through Amazon FBA, but today’s post will be centered around items that I have purchased with the intention of flipping on eBay, but never actually got around to listing — for one reason or another.
Yesterday I took the first steps towards liquidating my eBay inventory which involved taking close to 200 photographs and editing all of those before I went to bed so that I could list at least 20 items today. Thanks to my trusty batch photo editor, I edited all of those photos in less than 30 minutes. I did not realize how much good stuff I have been letting collect dust. Don’t believe me?!? Take a look at the inventory I plan to list today. These are things that you should be on the lookout for (#BOLO) at your local thrift stores, garage sales, or flea markets.
LinkSys Wireless Router – These are in abundance at thrift stores! Many times I find these new in package, but in most cases they are used. Some models do better than others in either condition. This one should sell for between $30-$50. I paid $6.00.
Sony VHS/DVD Recorder – Are you looking in the electronics section of your thrift store? If not, you should be! I purchased this beauty for $25. Last year I would have balked at paying that price, but I hope to re-sell this for $125. It isn’t complete, but it does have its original box and remote control. You can view completed listings here.
Dymo D1 labels – I love selling office supplies on eBay. They are usually a very quick flip for me. I picked up this particular set of labels from a yard sale. Each box contained five (5) individual units. I would rather sell these as a set and hope get $50-60 per box. I picked 3 boxes for $1.00 each. Score! 🙂
Clairol Root Touch Up – I picked these up at an estate sale a month ago for $0.25 each. I learned about selling these from Bradley over at Sell on eBay for Profit. Hopefully this will be a quick flip for around $20.
Blooming Onion Machine – I routinely find these at thrift stores. I pay no more than $4 for these and can sell them — even in used condition — for $30. The last one I sold went to a buyer in Germany. I paid $3.99 for this one and it is new in box (although the outside of the box shows wear). You can view completed listings here.
Body Monitoring System – I found this at a thrift store mixed in with wireless routers and remote controls. It had $8.00 written on it, but it was sealed/new in package so I put in my cart to research. I didn’t let the price deter me like I would have in the past. After researching this particular model, I hope to get at least $65 for it. This particular model is different from the ones that sell for $100+ because it isn’t Bluetooth enabled.
Those are just a few examples of the items that I have been neglecting to list. If I tally the potential gross sales from those products alone, I have been sitting on $395.00 — and that’s being conservative with my estimates.
I should kick myself for ignoring these items, but I’m not. Instead, I’m going to end this post and get back to listing. I want to hear some “cha-chings” again. It has been a long, long time and I’m having that sound your phone makes when you’ve just been paid withdrawals!
