If you have followed my blog for a while, you would know that I am an active seller on eBay. Selling items on eBay is one of my favorite side hustles. There is a market for almost anything. There are so many things that you can flip. How do you find eBay inventory, though? In today’s post, I will be discussing seven places where you can get inventory to sell on eBay.
The 1st and easiest place to find eBay eBay inventory is to check your closets. I’m sure that you have clothes that you don’t wear anymore or things that you don’t use anymore. There is no reason for you to be a hoarder. If you can make some money, why not try? I clean out my closets and dressers a couple of times during the year. I’m usually able to find a few things to sell. If I have some stuff that I don’t think will sell, I usually donate them to the local thrift store.
The 2nd place that you can get inventory for eBay is from your family. If your family likes to keep or hoard stuff you may be in luck. They may have a lot of things that they are just holding on to. Ask them if they will let you look through some stuff. You may find some hidden gems.
One of my favorite places to get items to sell on eBay is from thrift stores. There are several Value Village, Goodwill and Salvation Army locations near me. There are always useful items in the stores. Make sure have a list and know what you are looking for. The good thing with thrift stores is that they get new items each day.
Flea Markets are another good place to find items as well. I’ve been able to negotiate prices for a lot of the items that I have purchased there. A lot of people that sell at flea markets are trying to get rid of their stuff quickly and easy. That is usually a win for re-sellers.
Yard sales are another one of my favorite places to look for items. You can usually talk down prices there as well. In my experience, I have found some major steals at yard sales. Look on Craigslist or in your local newspaper to see when there will be a yard sale near year. If you see something called a neighborhood yard sale, try your best to attend. A community yard sale is when several neighbors or households decide to hold a yard sale. It can be spread out at their separate houses or in one place.
Discount stores are another place to find inventory. Dollar Tree, Big Lots and Family Dollar are just a few examples of discount stores. They have items marked down at lower prices. You can but them there and sell them for their regular prices.
Rounding out the list is craigslist. Craigslist has a “free” section where people can list things that they are giving away for free. Sometimes there are some items that you can make money off of. It just depends on when you check their site. Those free items tend to disappear very fast.
Those are seven places where you can get your eBay inventory from. If you are an eBay seller, you must check these places out. There is a lot of money to be potentially made. You just have to look for what you think will sell.
