What to sell on eBay: Nerf Super Soaker sold for $113!

Wonder what to sell on eBay for fast cash? I shop thrift stores and Goodwill shops in my area to purchase items at a low cost and flip them for a higher profit online. I purchased 2 of these new Nerf Super Soaker water guns at Goodwill for $5 each. One of them sold on eBay, the other on Amazon for over $100! 

Here is the completed eBay listing: 

Keep your eye open for Vintage or New in box & discontinued Nerf guns!

What States Have You Shipped eBay Items To?

Have you ever wondered what states you have shipped to when selling on eBay? Better yet, what states have you NOT shipped to? Keep it fun and colorful, but coloring in the state you've shipped when printing the package label.

See the colorful map:
I just started coloring in the states as of January 1, 2021. Download and print a map of the United States that includes those. Here is a good example.

If you're in need of a great postal scale that won't break the bank, I highly recommend the one I use, by Weighmax:

How to Check for Duplicate Item Listings on eBay

eBay sellers with numerous item listings may encounter issues with duplicate item listings. Often unintentionally, items may be listed (or relisted) more than once which is against eBay's listing policy. eBay's policy states:

"To ensure buyers see a wide variety of options from a variety of sellers, we don't allow more than one fixed price listing of an identical item at the same time, from the same seller"

Sellers can check for duplicate item listings using a tool called "Duplicate Listing Scanner for eBay Items" located here. This is a FREE third-party tool that has proven helpful to myself, a Top-Rated eBay seller with nearly 20 years experience.

How to sell on eBay: specify color with Crayola crayon

I have been selling on eBay for over 18 years! In my experience, I have had a few returns for "Item does not match description" relating to the color of the item. Understandably, lighting and the graphics quality on a mobile device or computer may cause the color to vary slightly. I, personally, have had a difficult time photographing anything black - therefore, I don't typically pick up this color when #thrifting. 

To clear up some misinterpretation of color, I recently started taking pictures of odd colored items with the Crayola crayon that matched. I state in the item description that "the color of the item is most accurately represented by the Crayola crayon, color here. Crayon not included".

Mother - Daughter Garage sale haul $50 spent

My assistant (my daughter) and I went garage saling (is that a word?) and brought home this haul:

2 New Scrub shirts $2 ea
Disney Scrub shirt $2
1 NEW Banana Republic pleated skirt $4
Stuffed Winnie the Pooh Plush $1
New vintage Coca Cola mug .25
Vintage Granny Square quilt $2
Several NEW with tags clothing for Amazon FBA
Plus Size holiday themed clothing $4
Ugly Christmas sweater with cats all over it (may keep for myself) $1
Vera Bradley bag - retired pattern $4

2 Rarely worn LulaRoe shirts $8
2 NEW LulaRoe patterned skirts $8
The lady had several XXS & XS LulaRoe shirts for $5 each, but would not budge on the price regardless of the number I purchased. I have NEVER found a LulaRoe anything nor have I tried to resell that brand, so I cautiously only purchased two shirts.

Total spent just under $50.
Expect to make that back on just one of the LulaRoe skirts!

Time spent with my daughter: priceless!
