    Talking My Goodwill Finds For Ebay

    All the Goodwill stores in my area were having a huge sale - so I spent most of the day driving around picking up stuff

    Hello
    I sell on Amazon with my laptop You don't FBA. I have sold scrap RAM and other little toys. But if you do FBA u might want to get a usb bar-code scanner. I hope this helps you out.
    P.s. I think those packaged media move quick.

    Old blank media does sell, but not for a lot once you account for shipping costs.
    for me, it usually takes 3 - 5 weeks to sell items like that.

    I don't think there is a person out there who has not at least once tried to sell something on Feebay. Early on when Feebay began I was on there selling just about anything and everything and making money. Shipping via the USPS in priority boxes was then $2.85. I sold the heck out of those handout pictures race cars drivers sign for people. We drag race so at the end of the weekend when the pro drivers moved on to the next event they just tossed boxes full of picture cards in the trash along with everything else like the flags they surround the pit area with and their broken parts. Being a repurposer and a scrounge I would retrieve all that stuff. I sold the heck out of shot copper head gaskets from nitro engines especially if they were hand signed by who burned them up. Burnt pistons and broken rods sold like hotcakes. Then all of a sudden others got the same idea but were more ingenious or at least they thought they were. They began to offer more for the money like a hundred pictures instead of only 50 and ship for free. I was good at it but could not see a reason to sacrfice what profits I made in order to just make a sale for a third of what I was making before so I stopped Feebay selling around 2010. We still hit Goodwills on half price days. Find all kinds of stuff but Feebay is not my choice for selling any of it. Swap meets and flea markets are non existent here.
