eBay / eBay Double / Triple your money tip
« on: June 02, 2013, 04:09:40 PM »
I just got done reading a post in another category here that involved Nike Clothing... which got me thinking  about my ALMOST (lol) sure fire / guaranteed / slam dunk profit / money maker .. not huge but steady for years now.... I periodically hit all the Good Wills ,Salvation Armys,Charity thrift stores,etc.  looking for NIKE Dri Fit clothing.. any size, any logo, any style, any color ( golf,work out training,athletic long or short sleeve,men's ,womens,whatever).. the shirts are usually $2 to $5.00 ... as long as they are in good condition with normal usage they'll bring double sometimes triple on eBay.... I got tired of listing them individually, so I now stockpile them at my storage locker and when I get 6 or 8 or 10 of the same size I sell " Lot" shirts with a Buy it Now of triple what i have invested and after a week online I allow them to make an offer... always getting double my input for any offer..they ship cost effectively because of the ease of packaging and being so lightweight... check out this link for an ebay search of "used lot nike dri fit shirts " for examples ...  >>>   <<<<

answered a CL ad " sell my stuff for me"etc.... when I got there,,, I wasn't too excited... books! dammit i hate books..but some nice other stuff, harley helmets,upscale surround sound systems, lotsa cameras and accesories ( i love these for ebay)... and a telescope ( gonna need help on the value but that's another post)..and other stuff.... turns out the books are RailRoad Collector stuff ,after research in ebays sold in the past 30 days, I believe there's over a grand there, then I get to Automobilia collector books research shows another $800 or so...but the really insane thing is there's 4 Buick Brochures, pristine from late 1930's ,early 40's ... and they're selling between $45 to $65 bucks... overall it looks like about $4500 to $4800 sitting cut is'll take me about 40 listings to get it all online  (ebay &CL) and a few weekends at the flea market, but I'm kinda digging the thought of clearing $1400 / $1600 online and another 800 net at the flea... here's a link to 1 of the Buick Brochures >>>>

Craigslist / Free Templates for my CL ads....
« on: April 10, 2013, 04:07:28 PM »
.. I've been using a free provider ( ) to make my presentations look better.Lately, some of my ads are not showing to the public . They do show me they are live on my control panel (obviously on my own computer),so I have no idea which ads are corrupted or not.I have to ask friends to go on their comps and say "can you see me now?" anyway any suggestions/ideas/tips/new provider info would be appreciated,thanks

eBay / Man I love old cameras and their accessories
« on: March 24, 2013, 02:13:28 PM »
I've had really good luck with lenses,camera,accessories,etc..... with a little research,some of this stuff has turned from throw aways to BIG profit..latest find was a crown royal bag (of course,lol) with 4 pieces in it... one piece I just listed ( LEICA E. LEITZ WETZLAR SUMMARON - F=35cm 1-3.5 LENSE / LENS w CASE RARE) on far $211 bid with 4 1/2 days to go...if it gets to $320 that'll pay for my entire locker purchase.. this whole unit's turning out to be a nice buy..
