eBay: Rare, branded, or sought-after items

  • You can sell just about anything on eBay, but you’ll find the best luck listing rare items that have a niche market. Do you have classic toys like action figures, collectibles, or vintage electronics stored away in the attic or garage? You can search ‘compared listings’ for an idea of what similar items have sold for under the ‘Advanced Search’ tab.

Craigslist: Large items like furniture

  • Try Craigslist to sell large items to local purchasers. Expensive-to-ship furniture, children’s items like strollers and bikes, yard equipment, cars, exercise machines, and more will do well on Craiglist. You can even list services, job postings and places for rent.

99 Designs: Your own logo designs

  • Have a design background? Sign up and submit designs for logos, T-shirts, brochures and lots more, working closely with the lister for continual feedback. Win cash (and bragging rights) if the lister chooses to use your design!

Etsy: Your handmade products

  • Want to sell your art or homemade products? What about retro and collectible items? Set up your own online shop on Etsy and post your products. Browse other Etsy shops for inspiration on what to sell and how to market your store!

Copious and Threadflip: Gently used clothes and accessories

  • Copious and Threadflip are similar online marketplaces for selling your clothes and accessories. They offer a highly social shopping experience integrated with Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. On Threadflip, items that are not approved to be listed can be donated to a charity of your choice, and on Copious, you can choose to donate your proceeds.

Amazon: Not only for books

  • Amazon may be known best for book shopping but you can also sell on Amazon – and you can list virtually anything. Amazon makes it a piece of cake for both the seller and buyer, and it’s a very trustworthy platform so no need to worry. It’s awesome because you don’t have to pay any fees until your item sells.
