Dear Friend,

eBay Sellers Guide to Finding Profitable Hidden Bargains at Garage SalesHardly 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. 

The most frequent response to this question is “start by selling things from around the house” followed closely by “buy inventory at garage sales.”

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 for eBay.

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.

Consider these...

The young mother who sells baby clothes on eBay leaves behind a board game priced at $1 that will easily bring $80 on eBay.

The elderly 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 $150.

The long 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 for.

 Garage Sale Strategies for eBay Success - Make money with online auctions
Let’s 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 to you.

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 exactly what brands, types, colors, subjects, packaging, etc to look for!

  • Books
  • CD's & Cassettes
  • Craft Items
  • Electronic Equipment
  • Kitchenware
  • Magazines
  • Musical Instruments
  • Photographic Equipment
  • Sporting Equipment
  • Toys
  • Miscellaneous

The items 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.
~ James Jones
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.  ~ Terry Gibbs
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. ~ Barbara Ling
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 eBay!

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.
