Do you sell things on eBay?

If so, what sort of things? I have stuff listed right now. I sell a lot of my son's things once he outgrows them, plus a variety of other things.

  • Yes. I've been selling on Ebay for the past 10 years. I operate two stores--one is my "serious" product line, the other is to get rid of odds and ends for family and friends. I've primarily sold Caswell-Massey and Crabtree and Evelyn (high end bath and body), and Lenox products--my husband works near the Lenox outlet in NJ, so he lets me know when they have clearance sales and often picks up specific items for me for resale! I also sell Dedham Pottery "Bunny Ware" reproductions (The Potting Shed), and Fiestaware.

    I have a state registered business license which allows me to buy wholesale.

  • i don't do ebay. i'm more of a craigslist gal. i sell things my kids outgrow like strollers, bouncers, clothes, old furniture, etc. and the best thing is i don't pay any fees & don't need to hassle with shipping. but i'm definitely an ebay buyer!

  • I sell my stuff on craigslist so I don't have to worry about shipping. All my kids old clothes, toys, etc. I also sold my maternity wardrobe and my baby furniture on there.

  • Yep, I love eBay. We live in a very small town in a remote area, so buying and selling locally isn't really an option.

  • I've sold jewelry, tea cups, clothes, books. I know ladies who buy really expensive clothes when they go on clearance and then resell them on eBay.

  • I've also done Craigslist, and I donate a lot of things as well. I only sell some of the higher end stuff that I paid a lot of money for, that way I'm getting some of it back. Craigslist is good for larger items that can't be shipped!

  • I've sold a few old Coach purses that I'm not going to use anymore. I haven't sold anything other than that.
