Calendar For Greatest Profits

from Jenni Hunt 

The Fall is such a great time to be selling on eBay – it is a wonderful time for moms to get started too. Back to school items are still selling
- although not quite as well as they did late July and earlier this month. But, even though BTS (Back To School) sales may start slowing down real soon – there is still plenty of time left in this selling season for children’s items.

If you are wondering what you should be listing for this highest profits…
I’ve put together a little calendar that goes through the rest of the year.


AUG: BACK TO SCHOOL – There are just a couple short weeks MAX left for great BTS auctions. Things to include are uniforms, Fall clothing – cardigans, jeans, khakis, shoes, backpacks, etc.

SEPT-OCT: COSTUMES – Costumes are incredible sellers this time of year!
You can pick them up used at yard sales or thrift shops for $1-2 and turn them around for $20-80+. Last year I picked up a bin of costumes for $5 and it was filled with Disney costumes and accessories… one costume was the Dizard of Oz Dorothy costume. I picked up some rubie slippers at our local thrift shop for $2 and the entire lot sold for $25 on eBay.

OCT-NOV: Holiday Clothing – parents want family pictures for Christmas cards… and many times they go out right after Thanksgiving… so they are shopping early for outfits for the kids.

OCT-DEC: TOYS!! This is THE best time for toy sales – you can pick up some of the hottest toys at your local stores that are sold out in other parts of the country and list them on ebay for some amazing profits! Toy sales sky-rocket after Black Friday because many stores are out of stock and desperate to find THE dream toy for their little ones.
