Hardly a day goes
by that I don’t receive several emails asking the same basic
question. “Where and how do I locate inventory to sell on eBay?”
That, or some variation of it, is probably the most frequently asked
question on the many auction related discussion boards on the Net.
frequent response to this question is “start by selling
things from around the house” followed closely by “buy inventory at
I’m sure there are
tens of thousands of eBay sellers who use garage sales, yard sales,
rummage sales, and estate sales as their primary source of inventory
Many of them
specialize and what they buy at these sales is as varied as eBay
itself….toddler’s clothing, designer women’s clothing, tools,
antiques, collectibles, books, CDs, collectible figurines such as
Precious Moments…..the list could go on and on.
Yet, whatever they
search for, nearly all of them have one thing in common. When they
walk down the driveway back to their car, many times they walk
away from the garage leaving the gold still on a table or in a box
in the garage.
mother who sells baby clothes on eBay leaves behind a board
game priced at $1 that will easily bring $80 on eBay.
gentleman who prides himself for his knowledge of antiques walks
down the driveway empty handed leaving behind three boxes of 6
year old magazines marked FREE that will easily bring
haired young man who gets in his car with a smile on his face
because of the two books he’s just bought for $2 leaves behind a
blender priced at $10 that bidders regularly pay $200 or more
face it – sourcing your inventory at garage sales can be hard work.
If you already do it that statement doesn’t come as a surprise
No matter what you look for, you end up walking away
empty handed from a lot of the sales you go to. But it doesn’t have
to be that way.
The purpose of this ebook is to give you to tools to make your
garage saling more profitable. To allow you to walk away empty
handed from a lot less garage sales.
I will make this promise. By the time you finish
reading this ebook you will be able to wring every last
possible cent in profit from the garage sales you go to.
I tell you
not only to look for the items listed below, but
brands, types, colors, subjects, packaging, etc to look for!
- CD's & Cassettes
- Craft Items
- Electronic Equipment
- Musical Instruments
- Photographic Equipment
- Sporting Equipment
listed won’t make you rich overnight. But, they will allow you to buy
items that you will make $30 to $80 profits from (and sometimes
more) on a regular basis. And you will be able to buy these items
because the average person who goes to garage sales will pass them by
because they have no idea of their actual value.
|Robbin, I love "Garage
Sale Strategies for eBay Success." I've been looking for a
resource like this for months. I go to a lot of garage sales
and I'm always wondering if I'm leaving behind some hidden
gems. I'm gonna keep a copy of this book in my car so
I can always have it handy.
|Great resource. This is
perfect for reading over during your morning coffee before
heading out to the sales. I recommend printing it out and
reading it through a few times. I also think you should take
notes when you are at sales. right down everything you see
that you don't buy and then look it up on eBay when you get
home. When you find something you should have bought, and
realize how much you walked away from, it will really
reinforce the lesson. ~
|I've just finished
reviewing this quick 29 page guide, and Robbin cuts thru to
the chase about what's valuable in categories such as books,
tapes, clothing, CDs, craft items, etc. etc. etc. It was
quite an eyeopener for me! And one that will greatly help me
when I go back to sales with my eyes on these items.
I can highly recommend it. ~
As a confessed garage sale-aholic who has made tens of
thousands of dollars selling on eBay I can absolutely say
this is one of the best "how to start an eBay business on a
shoestring" books I've ever read. Not only do you cover how
to spot the items that will bring in the most profit, you
even help the reader map out a strategy for success. This is
a book ANYONE interested in starting an eBay business on a
budget MUST READ.
Who else wants to make a
killing on eBay?! Robbin shows you EXACTLY what to look
for at yard sales so that you don't miss any hidden
treasures. Get ready for a whole new level of success on

|Just wanted to let you
know how much I enjoyed reading your new book Garage Sales
Strategies. I thought I would be taking you up on your
satisfaction guarantee and asking for a refund, but was
really surprised at some of the items listed in your book.
Two days after reading it I was at the Goodwill and spotted
a FM convertor for AM radios and remembered it was in the
book. The money I will make selling it will easily pay for
your book. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for such a
great resource and look forward to any updates you might
come out with.
