Sometimes the most boring, unassuming products are worth quite a bit of money. In our area, most of the dealers run for the types of items traditionally found at antique stores: Fenton glass, metal lunch boxes, vintage clocks, etc. The rest of the resellers are picking up large electronics. I think they might be taking them to flea markets. Not sure.
I will only sell large items if they are worth a lot of money. In fact, I highly recommend avoiding large items unless they are worth $100 or more. Large items take up a lot of space, and they take too much time to ship properly.
That’s why I love selling self-help programs! They’re easy to list and easy to ship. A few weeks ago, we sold the item pictured above: Attacking Anxiety and Depression: A Self-Help, Self-Awareness Program. I picked it up randomly at a yard sale. It had been sitting there all day. We bought it for $1 and sold it for $99 + free shipping. OK. So maybe I made a little less than $100, but it only took me a few minutes to list and ship this product.
