Many of you have had great success with selling bigger, annoying to ship items on Craigslist, so I thought we would dedicate today's what to sell idea to that and maybe some of you pros can weigh in on the comments!
I know in thrifting and yard saleing you come across fabulous deals on some bigger toys and baby gear, but they are simply too big to ship or too space consuming to hold until a consignment sale. Why not buy them and resell them on Craigslist?
Here are some great things to sell on Craigslist:
- play kitchens
- picnic tables
- Step 2/Little Tikes big toys
- baby gear like swings, exersaucers, pack n plays, etc.
Before you decide to buy these items for reselling on Craigslist, however, arm yourself with knowledge! Do your research! Check out Craigslist and see what people are asking for these types of items. Assume that you will ask/accept LESS than these prices (after all, if they are still listed on Craigslist, they haven't sold, right?). Also, be willing to have them sitting around your yard or garage for a few days until you can get them sold.
Remember that not everything is a good seller on Craigslist. People search the big stuff but often little things go unsold because people just aren't looking for them there.
For you experts out there, what have you had success selling on Craigslist? What prices do you typically get for them?
