LOVELY BANKERS DESK / TABLE LAMP WITH DARK GREEN SHADE Purchase Price: 3 Sold For: 24

I have been selling on eBay for all most 5 years now and I love it. It's my part time business and my passion. I started it as a hobby and then realise it can be a lucrative business if I regularly buy items and sell it on ebay. Most of the item I sell on eBay comes from carboot and secondhand markets and going to carboot sale every sunday morning now has became another past time hobby of mine. I love visiting carboot sale and browsing hundreds of stalls on a lovely sunny day and I never turn down any item that I find there which I can sell to make a good profit.

One thing I realised is that most of the time carboot sellers don't realise the true value of the item they are selling and it is these items that will give you maximum hefty profit when you sell it on a online auction site such as eBay. Many people think they can't make much money on ebay but believe me this is not true, if you put your mind and heart into it and if you are willing to learn and dedicate your time then there is a lot of money to be made. Over the last few years ebay has created many internet businesses and millionairs. Google it and check it yourself.

In this hub I will be updating you with my success on eBay and let you know how I am doing on ebay at this moment. I will give you an update on my weekly sales and list my best and worst selling items. Make sure to regularly check this hub to find some interesting items I have sold on ebay.

This week's top selling items

KODAK EasyShare PRINTER DOCK Series 3 Printer + Camera

Purchase Price: £5 | Sold For: £32

This item was almost new and came with all cables and accessories and off course the digital camera. For £5 it was a bargain. If you want to purchase this from an electrical retailer it will cost you between £60 to £100.

Least Popular Item

Lovely Large Pair Of Chrome Metal Candlesticks

Purchased Price: £6 | Sold For: £0.99

A bargain for the buyer, I made a mistake by auctioning this item, should have sold it at buy it now price. They are a nice pair of candle holders with modern look and large in size but it didn't appeal to much to the ebayers, don't know why. Anyway had to go, hope the buyer enjoys the bargain.

Rare item this week

Casio VI-9850GB Graphic Calculator with tv interface

Purchased Price: 0.50p | Sold For: £5.94

This is a very hard to find rare claculator, I have searched on ebay and only found 1 listing and it was priced at £200. The original cost of this item when sold new was $600. Again I made a mistake by listing it as auction as it went very cheap but this time I have not lost any money as I only paid 50p for it. I could have easily sold for £50.

Easy to find, cheap to buy, good profit

100 SCRABBLE TILES - PLASTIC ROUND BACKS COMPLETE SET

Purchase Price: £1 | Sold For: £12

Purchased the scrabble board game and then sold the letters on its own. The letters sells for more than the board game so its best to sell them seperately and throw the rest of the item away or sell them very cheap on ebay. I buy and sell these regularly and its very easy to find in carboot sale. Almost every week I find one and it usually cost me one or two quid.
