You Can’t Afford To NOT Sell Toys On Ebay This Holiday Season!

Monday, October 19th, 2009

Guest Post by Jenni Hunt at Holiday Toy Guide.

Looking at trends in the toy industry can be valuable for an eBay seller… it helps to know what kind of inventory to keep an eye out for – and you can bet that the most popular toys this year will likely follow these trends. This is true for new and used toys.

Following are some trends that outline what buyers are paying attention to this year and are useful to keep in mind when shopping for inventory.

1. Eco-Friendly Toys

“Green” is IN… it is everywhere and toys are no exception! Toys that are environmentally friendly are expected to be very popular this year.

2. Budget Friendly

The economy is all the talk – but that doesn’t mean parents aren’t going to be buying toys for their kids this Christmas. Retailers are already gearing up to offer some great prices on their toys this year.

3. Realistic Toys

I think it started with Baby Alive years ago… but it has become a huge trend these past few years and looks like it will continue. These are toys that respond to touch and interact with the child somehow.

4. Classic toys

Many parents are turning to toys that they had when they were young.

5. Movies

There are always a few movies that are released during the year that have a very timely DVD release right before the holidays. Look at what movies did well this year – and keep an eye on the merchandise available for that movie… usually they do well on eBay.

Garage Sale Success ~ I made $1000!

Garage Sale Sign

My garage sale was a huge success – get my Garage Sale Tips!

I made $1000 and that was my goal, I did not have quite as much stuff as I had at my last sale where I made $1300. It was my mother and I having the sale and we sold about $1800 total.

My kids were very happy with their profits as well, my 13 year old stepdaughter made $28 with her concessions and $30 on some of her clothing and books. My 2 younger kids got to help price some of their toys and put the stickers on (you can read more about that experience here) they did well also, my 6 year old daughter made $27 and my 4 year old son made $14.

Our ad for the local newspaper cost $38 and we rented 6 tables for $25, I think it was well worth the cost. (more…)
