I buy my vaccuum (foodsaver)sealer bags on ebay. My boyfriend/husband buys me turtles (I love turtles). Kitchen items and clothes seem to go well, as does jewelry.

I have been a member of Ebay for a long time now, and I both buy and sell. The main things I buy are clothes, Bon Jovi memorabilia, dvds, cds, Dora stuff for my daughter! You would be amazed at what sells on Ebay...just about ANYTHING! Even if you think its junk, whats one persons trash is another persons treasure!!!!! Good luck with your selling! :)

I sell on ebay and have found that the most profitable sales come from baby items, name brand clothing, and new with the tag items. I buy some stuff on clearance at Walmart and resale it occasionally. Seems to work out pretty good for the most part.

Yes I am a member of ebay, my main purchase from them is perfumes, have bought some teddies and jewellery and recently some novels. I have sold 2 items on there but there are a lot of items that you can sell if you do not want them anymore as what someone does not want, there is someone who will.

The easiest to sell without spending money is what is in your home (The clothes kids grew out of, what you do not use anymore etc...) I have a few wholesalers for dvd's and jewlery, it took months to find, so I hold my info very private. I am 100% more of a seller then a buyer, but I just recently bought some small baby items, if I want a big ticket item,I go to the store, I would rather pay retail then wonder if I am going to get ripped off (Fake handbags and such)

I have sold a variety of things on here. Kids clothes go really good, especially name brand ones. I have also sold electronics (even some that didnt work, people know how to fix them). Collectables go good as well. I have to say the most successful things I have sold is clothing.

Hi, I tend to buy a heck of alot of shoes on Ebay, and clothes, and make-up oh and hats and.. oh the list could go on. I did hear that the most popular sale on ebay was handbags, followed by books, not sure how true this is, whether it was just UK or worldwide. I work with a powerseller and amongst quite a few bits and pieces books seem to be one of our biggest sellers!

I am a member of ebay. I have been buying on ebay for about three years now and just this last year I started selling. I started with just getting rid of things around the house that we don't need or use and have been going to flea markets and such to find product to sell. Kids clothing seem to sell real well, cds, dvds, and electronics also are doing well. You will not get much help from the current sellers as they do not like to give away the information of where they get their products from. I would say that you would have to spend hours searching it out all on your own.

I am a memeber of ebay ..but I have only bought one thing and that was a part for a 78 ford truck that my friend owns ,it was a part he couldn't find and he didn't have a computer, so I found one for him ...I would think that almost anything would sell as there are so many people on there everyday ...

Heya kathy, I am a member of Ebay and I have been for at least a few years. I used to mostly buy DVD's on there. I too have been trying to decide what the best thing to sell on Ebay would be. I haven't come to any conclusion yet though sorry. Have you ever listed with Ebay before? You have to pay a small fee to list and then you have to pay them a percentage of what you get dependant on the item and the price you get for it. This makes me hesitant because I need to find something that is guaranteed to sell. Tanika.

We do buy on ebay. The things that we have bought lately are a bread machine and a crockpot. I usually buy clothes or cds or dvds. It really all depends. If I can't find it on amazon, then I will go to ebay.
