    Do you hit the yard sales in search of items to put up for sale on ebay? Do you buy things online that you find when it's a good deal to resell? Do you just sell things from around the house??

    I can't stand looking through yard sales for one or two good items amid a mound of junk. I need some ideas, too, so maybe some of your experiences will help me out.

    I dont usually do yard sales. I have them and all but not for stuff for ebay. I haven't sold much other than goofy auctions so far anyhow. Everything else was clothes and baby stuff I had.

    I usually hit the thrift stores. On certain days, there are certain things that are 50% off.

    Thrift stores are a great place to find some good older items. I get alot of my stuff from Godwill which usually has saturdays at 50% off

    Well, right know I have about 10 extra books that I have, I get them from the Library for about 25 cents. I know I can get more out of them.

    By now everyone on here knows IM WEIRD! BUt I like looking through junk at yard sales! SOmetimes that is where i get my things. Once i bought a tommy hifiguer sp? shirt at a yard sale for 3 bucks and resold it on ebay for 17! The lady LOVED it!

    We have a discount (junk) store here called Walls. Sometimes I find stuff there marked down good and still have tags on it and i can resell. Last thing i resold from there were some boys wrangler jeans.......nwt........

    I love yard sales, especially on the last day they are going to be open, by that time people are ready to give the stuff away. I usually buy furniture and add my own creative touch and turn around and resell it for 2 or 3x what I paid for it!
