I used to sell a lot of stuff on eBay - the two items that shocked me was a 1967 Hot Wheels I picked up at a garage sale ten years prior for a quarter and sold for $135 and an Art Arfon's library book I bought for $.75 and sold for $70.

I am going to get back in the game and I will report back.

I bought these manuals at Half Price Books last week for $14.95 - let's see if we can turn a profit and restore my attitude towards evil bay

Best of luck on the sale!

A buddy of mine gave me a huge collection of vintage Big Jim accessories in original boxes. I'm waiting until tax refund time to off them on the ebay.

I sell a couple hundred hot wheels on eBay every year. I buy car parts with the proceeds...

I recently sold my son's old cell phone (Galaxy S4) on eBay and did quite well with it. So it's still working for me.

I haven't sold in 7 or 8 years, since whenever Paypal's policies went to E36 M3, and eBay started screwing over the small sellers. But I have 2 bass guitars I've been trying to sell that haven't been getting any interest on Craigslist, or the one I posted on Reverb, so it may be time to hit a larger market. I'm very curious to see how you do!

i sold a couple things last week, both only got the minimum bid. going to give some other stuff a shot. looks like it's the best place to get big $ for obsolete refrigerants. i used to sell stuff constantly but quit after the last camaro i parted out.
