What to sell Wednesday, Thomas the Tank Edition: The Little Engines that Can (Earn you some money!)



When I go to a yard sale and see Thomas the Tank Engine stuff, I get excited.  Remember the magic formula I told you about last week? Thomas fits nearly all 3 of the ebay selling magic formula!  Thomas train items:

  • are expensive to buy new
  • are very popular and some pieces are retired and become hard to find
  • can be purchased at yard sales in a large quantities at a low price
Last week I sold a big box of wooden Thomas the Train items for $91, and I paid $15.  I sold a small set of Thomas Trackmaster items for $57, I paid $3.  If you can buy Thomas for cheap, it's worth it!

  1. I just discovered your blog and love it! For Christmas 2010, our 2-year-old twin boys were really into Thomas. I bought two lots of used Thomas stuff on ebay; I got 8 buildings, plenty of track, and about 30 trains for $100! If I had bought all of that new, it would've cost me between $700-800. Now THAT'S a good deal.
