Fun and profit on Ebay

So for years I've been an Ebay buyer and very rarely a seller.

Hell how I completely transformed our 2001 truck into a Harley clone almost entirely through Ebay has become legend.

On a whim, I decided to take some stuff I just had kicking around and try a listing or two.

So I list a rather small item that has no value to me and find out that it's a much sought after collector's item. Very rare, ultra rare blah blah blah.

So I sell one for $55 then another for $65 then another for $75.

Turns out I have 10 of these little gems kicking around and after contacting a few people managed to round up at least 24 more for only the cost of shipping them to me.

So it looks like my set of 22" Toyo Proxes will be ready for spring and it will cost me 34 Olympic trading pins.

Bwahahahahahahaha!

Okay back to your regularly scheduled programming!

Yup, you can make god cash on Ebay. I was off sick from work, a while back, and went out in the shop to look around. Up on a corner shelf I have two large boxes full of old models cars and trucks. So I decide to put some of them on Ebay...low and behold, guys(and gals) were paying up to and even over a hundred bucks for just one kit. That week, I sold five models for about $600 (US). Soon I'll be getting shoulder surgery, and I'll put more on there while I'm on down time...good supplement to sick pay.

One persons trash is another persons treasure. Be mindful, the CDN gov is taking great interest in Ebay. Especially those making a regular earning at it, and Ebay is cooperating.
