I have been trying to look for bigger things that might sell on Craigslist or Facebook so that I don't have to pay the fees that come off the top on eBay or Etsy. My little girl had this kitchen set for a few years and she hardly played with it anymore so I put it on Facebook. I had someone take it right away! I think we paid around $25 for it and we sold it for $10.00.
Sold for $10.00
Next I found this little Fisher Price table at a yard sale for $1.00!!! I couldn't believe it was so low because it was in excellent condition! I put $15 on it and sold it within a day or two! I might have been able to get a little more for this on eBay but then there's the hassle of packing up something big and losing a lot of the profit to fees.

When I bought this picnic basket a couple of months ago my plan was to sell it on eBay but after researching it I just figured it was hardly worth the hassle so I put it on Facebook the other day asking $15 for it. I had one lady say she wanted it Thursday but then she must have changed her mind. Another lady asked today if I would take $10 for it so I did....I just wanted it out of my den! It came with a service of 4 plates, cups and silverware...all hard plastic.

Paid $5.00 - Sold for $10.00 - Profit $5.00
I will be keeping my eyes open for things that I can get for a good price and make at least $10 profit on. I figure I won't have to worry about packing these bigger things up or about fees either!
