The best thing about your videos is seeing what sells. I’m fairly new to buying with the purpose of reselling. I’m still selling off my collection of comics, toys and comic related stuff but really enjoying the buying and selling.
I’ve been hitting estate sales in person and some online auctions.
Got several of these Who’s Who Among American High School Student books in an auction lot. I bought the lot for some electronics and got 4 or 5 of these. Sold this one for 14.95
Have about a half dozen college Chinese language textbooks from my son who left them here with a note to donate or whatever…so I ebayed them! This is the second set of text and workbooks sold. This set for $18.00
Picked up two perfect condition vintage “Cassette Library” holders at an estate sale for I think $2 each. Hade one up for sale at $25, got an offer of $15 and countered with $25 for two of them and they sold.
While in San Francisco for work in August I packed an extra duffel bag since I had a free checked bag allowance and hit a bunch of thrift stores. Picked up this new in box Starcraft mini figure for $2 and sold for $16
Really excited about this lot of books I won in an online auction. Ended up being two big tubs of books. I got the entire lot for $3 which was surprising but most of it in the online pics looked like a bunch of religion books. I bid because there were several coffee table type auto books I could see in the pics. The huge bonus was all of the Law books! I’ve sold a couple so far with this one being the big winner at $55.00! I’m up to about a hundred dollars total on the books from those bins.
found this french coffee press at a thrift store for $2.00. Sold for $15.50. Only hitch is I didn’t charge enough for shipping. I think I spent an extra $5 on shipping so lesson learned.
I believe I’ve got about 12 sales in the last week or so with about half of those being things I’ve bought to resell. the rest is more of my collection.

Great sales! thanks for sharing. I had written a post for this but when i submitted it, it just disappeared! 🙁
Anyway, BOLO for art supplies. I know it has been mentioned before but in case anyone new doesn’t know. Sold these for less than they are worth but only pennies in…
My hoarder neighbor is moving and putting all kinds of junk on the curb. Sold some stuff this week from his garbage. He has 3 buildings to clear out, his basement and garage! Unfortunately, nothing was climate controlled or protected from moisture.
Happy holidays everyone! Thanks to everyone for all the knowledge that is shared. Be well. Liz (catmom)

nothing like a hoarder next door. I have a hard time not stopping when I see a pile of stuff out at the curb.
It’s even worse with an open top refuse bin at a construction site or commercial business!

Jaepete! I have the same problem! I’ve even converted my husband who was originally horrified that I wanted to pick through curb stuff. He used to sit in the car and pretend not to know me. UNTIL…. he watched me pick out vintage tools and carhartt clothing…. I kept holding stuff up asking “do you want this”… curiosity finally got him out of the car and he is now converted.
Now he is always asking me “do you want to stop?” lol

Steve – I’ve never seen a Trippensee Planetarium, but yet you’ve sold two and have one of your own. I’ll keep my eyes out for one.
Some of my best ROIs is with incomplete dish sets. Someone requested a combined purchase of salad and dinner plates with this stoneware set from Target. I think I paid maybe $3 for the whole set? And, I’ve already sold a good bit of it already. I sold a total of 12 plates for $84. I’m mostly left with mugs now.
This Swarovski pin is one of my commission sales, which sold for $89. Unfortunately, it is one of my packages stuck in the USPS backlog of deliveries. I’ve submitted an inquiry because the buyer is anxious, and I want to look like I’m doing something.
This ashtray was purchased in a large lot of vintage tools. I paid maybe $12 for the whole lot, so let’s say $1 for this one item, and it sold for $50.
Here is another item from that same lot that sold for $30, so maybe allocate another $1 for the sale. It’s an antique nail puller.
I recently purchased a the contents of a closet full of drapes and other linens for the starting bid of $1. I made sure to get this Christmas tablecloth listed quickly. It had several stains. I tried a few stain removing products, but some did not come out, so I soaked it in diluted bleach solution overnight. It worked! I disclosed that I had to remove stains in the condition statement, and it sold for $20.66. I have many, many more items yet to list from that $1 online auction purchase.
I purchased the contents of a bathroom closet in an online auction for a few dollars, and it included a several unopened cosmetic products. This product is sold via one of those home sales companies (I assume MLM). It sold for $40, and I have a similar product still listed.
