Okay folks, the reason for this is to help each other make money or help each other out. What I am asking for is your experience to help one another prosper financially by posting your successes of on line sales in categories we may have had the opportunity to do well but nobody would have thought about it. This site is about diecast but there are many other things which sell great to help all of us out. So, here is what is going on... Please post info about items that sell great on the bay for good bucks so we all stay informed and do well. If all of us happen upon certain things at yard sales, flea markets, thrift stores, or public auctions that are profitable, then please share so that we can all benefit from it. I will post the first in this series and after you view it, ask yourself this: How many times did I see that cheap and could have sold at a profit? That said, post away!!

Starting this out by letting you all know about Texaco fire trucks produced by Wen Mac and Buddy L. These things are awesome for the collector or resale guys. I bought one at an estate auction a while back cuz it was cool. I have watched auctions of these things and I have never seen one go un-sold ever regardless of condition. So guys and gals, if you see the fire truck I am providing a picture of for sale, don't pass it by. If you want more info on them and how much to pay PM me and we will square you away. The truck you see pictured I really don't want to sell. But it will go for no less than $250 even though I only paid $70 for it. Talk to me goose......

i wish i still had pictures, but when my dad and i built my new wooden cd storage i no longer needed all the old plastic ones i had.
i think i had 12 of the old laserline black square cd storage cases that would hold 90 cds each, in 3 rows, 30 in each row. i was going to toss them but on a lark put one on ebay just to see what they were worth.

brand new they were less than $10 ... so i just started the bidding at $1 ... by the end of the first day it was bid up to over $20 and people were emailing me trying to see if i had more.
i ended up making almost $500 on those old things. they dont make them anymore, and for those of you with cds who ened up buying one or two of them back in the day, you know how great they stack and nothing else quite does the job as well.

if you have em and dont really need em, theres money to be made.

Here are a couple of other things for all of you to consider. My Ebay life just got a lot better because I purchased a postal scale to help calculate shipping charges. No longer have to go to the Post office and run back home to let buyers know what they will be paying. I almost bought one at Staples for $150 but decided to look on Ebay. Glad I did, check out this guy. This has been a real help and this guy is awesome with awesome prices.

Other tip of the day. We all like to get things at the lowest cost possible. I found a cool website that can assist you in this. It is called Fat Fingers.com What it does is search Ebay auctions that have missspellings in them and end up not being looked at much. I have gotten some stuff using this at dirt cheap prices. Give it a shot.

KD, OldWillKnot has great prices on scales. I bought a 30 Lb scale from him for nearly nothing compared to Wal-Mart and other local stores price. I also got it cheaper than the 3 LB postal scale I got at Wal-Mart. I always weigh and print my own labels from home, save a lot of time.

I know what you mean Gabe. I got a 75 pound scale from him for next to nothing. It is accurate and has a letter attachment and mailing tube attachment. It was sent priority and arrived in perfect condition. Life on ebay is soooo much more easy.

I have found that Sports jerseys sell like hot cakes. You can but them right on EBay and then believe it or not, turn around and resell them and make cash. Old slightly used sell as well as new if they are still nice and not abused. Anything with sewn on lettering sells at a premiem and at the prices MLB.co, NFL.co etc charges everybody wins.
