What sales good on Ebay?

I have sold on Ebay before but just stuff I no longer wanted. I was thinking of maybe doing crafts or going to yard-sales to get stuff to sale but I wanted to not waste my money. What has sold the best for you? I would really love to be able to make this into a home business.

  • Cant you look on there and see what's hot or selling allot on their. Somehow I doubt craft's will sell well. Collectibles seem to always do well. Art work, baseball cards, games, Jewelery.

  • Electronics definitely! Anything that you might find that is not readily available anymore. Suzanne Wells is considered an eBay Selling Coach.. here is a link to her Blog: eBay Selling Coach.  She has a post in there somewhere on current items that are selling big on eBay.

  • Honestly I think the ebay days are over. I made a nice living 10 years ago on ebay but now so many corporate companies are on there it's hard to compete plus the fees have gotten out rageous.
