Has anyone had any success selling stuff they have made at home on Ebay? I have considered making earrings and tuff like that and trying to sell it on Ebay but thre is just so much on there alredy to compete with that I wonder if it would be worth my time. If anyone on here has had any success selling thier crafts or other homemade items on Ebay please let me know. Also if you have any tips to make trying to sell things on Ebay easier.

Thank you for your quick response. What is a diaper cake? I do not know if I will get serious enough with it to start a store or not. We are in the process of buying a house right now but I am planning on trying to develope a greater means of making income from home once we move. I have a list right now of websites to join after we move, I would like to find a way to make at least $300/month but it seems a little out of reach right now.

I tried selling cross stitch items but didn't do so well. But you might do okay with earrings. Here is a site that someone gave me where you can sell your craft items and the insertion fee is lower, I think. I haven't tried it yet but it seemed to be working really well for the girl who gave me the website. You also might try taking your earrings to craft fairs or if your town has a market night or something those can also be good ways to sell crafts. Good Luck. http://www.etsy.com/index.php

Thanks for the response. I will definitly check that out later. Though I think you craft fair idea might be better, becuase then I could have however long in between events to try to get lots of stuff made so I would have variety.
