  • I would start with my attic or other storage places. The Goodwill is also a good place to get things. This time of year, Yard Sales would also be a great place. Happy hunting!

    JEWELRY THAT SELLS: , or make some cute jewelry from shells, (beach) or design fake nail art;
    get a collection started, use several themes and colors. Some pastels, some bold- neons, some deep dark, and others pearl or
    glitter ! A lot of teens and younger ladies love these.

  • Go through your old things you are no longer using, and also as queen bee said, try garage sales. Some people sell things for dirt cheap because they need some work, paint, fixing.or they just plain don't care for it anymore.

  • FleaMarkets are a treasure trove. You need to keep a few things in mind. Just because you put something on eBay doesn't mean it will sell. Look around the categories and make sure you find stuff that isn't so overposted and the section you want to sell in is actually getting bids. Be sure to keep in mind that if you are buying stuff to sell you price it to cover all the fees and you have adequate means to package and ship it. Good Luck!

  • I know people who hit the sales each summer and winter and then sell the stuff on eBay. I, personally, just went through my house and started researching if the stuff would sell. I sold a lot of my 14K jewelry which is hot right now. To find out if something is popular join eBay (free) and go to advanced search. Type in your item and then check off completed listings. it will show you if any have sold and for how much. GL
