    What are some easy, fun-to-sell, profitable items on the web?

    My friend just found that there is a need throughout the world for Disneyland 60th Anniversary gifts to buy and resell. What are some successful items you've sold consistently on the web? I have sold highlighter tape in the past for many years on my website that is geared toward schools.  However, there is very little profit when selling two rolls of highlighter tape! I NEED TO KNOW THE SUPPLIER IS NOT EXPOITING WORKERS, however. That's an important concern in my choice of items.
    We're are retired and can't seem to get re-hired anywhere right now, so we NEED ideas b/c writing is not doin' it

    Do you use Amazon affiliate programs? If you have design experience, maybe put some things on Zazzle? I use commission junction as well to promote products and websites on my blogs.  Diversity is key for sure.  I also sell items at local craft fairs and markets that I make myself.  Some good sellers are handmade soaps, paper products like cards/stationaries and stuff for scrapbookers.  I also do upcycled crafts like wine bottle lamps... If you have some time to spare and are a bit crafty, that's a good side hustle as well and you can also list your items on sites like Etsy (and others that are less saturated)

      Christin,  I do use Amazon affiliate programs on my website, but since we have kids games, now I have to eliminate some of the adds.  If you ever want me to feature your products, let me know. I'll try to find you - send me links if you'd like

    I buy and sell items which I purchase cheaply from car boots or thrift shops.  Like Christin, I recently started a shop on Zassle and  have  had one sale thus far. but my view is, that you just have to keep on trying. I don't expect to make more than pin money.

      Sally-Thanks so much. I'll give it a try. My friend is selling 60th Anniv Disney charms to people in the UK who really want those charms (?)  She has a season pass to Disneyland and Disney seems fine with the re-selling. More than pin money I think.
