These people got all this stuff by extreme couponing and are now selling it.

You can't control what people dowoth stuff they purchased.

If you feel it is wrong-don't buy it.

I didn't because I believe they should donate it.

But I've seen those labels on stuff that say "not available for resale" and I was wondering if it applied to stuff like this.

 If you purchase it in a store it is available for resale. Now some items purchased in bulk are not LABELED for individual sale....

 This is no different than a yard sale in my opinion.

if that's what they want to do with it, I don't see the problem.

Why shouldn't it be legal? They obtained the products legally, paid taxes on the products, now they are selling them. Who cares?

why would it be unlawful?  they found a legitimate way to reduce their costs, and are trying to recoup extra funds for their efforts by selling the excess. 

sounds like a good business practice to me.

I bet you also bitch about the parents who purchase extra of the "gift of the year" at the holidays and jack up the prices on the ebay in a fine example of supply and demand.

I guess that depends on where you live. To sell anything here, whether its something like a yard sale you need a permit, otherwise the cops will shut it down and give you a fine.
