My wife and I have been selling stuff on eBay (off and on) since 98. For about a year or so, we did so well at it, that's all we did, but that was back in the "old" days when it was a LOT easier to make a buck there (and you had to learn html We would mostly go to auctions and garage sales to get stuff to sell, it was fun for a while. We've had a lot of good experiences, and a few bad ones, but overall it's been pretty good. I know there are some other regulars here if you'd like to share a story or opinion. I learned a few things along the way like: 1) NEVER rely on a "price guide" to determine if you can make money on something.... the "book value" of an item and what someone will actually pay for the thing can be wildly different. 2) No matter what it is..... somebody probably wants it 3) Never sell for friends, it's trouble. And everybody thinks that their furby or beanie baby or harley collectors whatever is worth about 10 times what somebody will actually give you for it. 4) Never take an auctioneer's word for it that something works. Plug it in and find out for yourself. Some of the interesting/weird/cool stuff we've sold over the years: 1) A 500 lb ice cream machine to a guy in Nigeria. Shipping was crazy, but he paid for it all. I had bought 2 of them at a restaurant auction and ended up turning nearly $2,000 profit on the pair. 2) An inert bazooka rocket.... ebay cancelled the auction, but we completed the sale. That was my very first auction 3) An old doctor's bag that's in a museum in Lexington now. 4) A really, really nice wheelchair that went to a guy who really needed it and was probably happier than any customer I've ever seen. Only made about 150 on the chair (it was over a grand retail), but it made me feel good to get it to someone who really appreciated being able to afford it. 5) A cracked bowling pin.... I told my wife to throw it away because "nobody would pay for that thing". She proved me wrong, a bowling pin collector gave her 10 bucks for it. 6) Made a MINT on a bunch of old "Transformers" toys 7) Done pretty well on old slot car stuff, and old Atari, Nintendo, and the like videogames. 8) Got $25 for a box of old, rusty keys. Another one my wife can say "I told you so". 9) Had a little box of barbie doll stuff we figured on getting 10 bucks for went for over a hundred. Turned out the shoes were what everybody wanted. 10) Got over 100 for an old cast iron motorcycle toy.... and the rider was missing his head. Anybody else?
