We like to keep an eye out for appliance parts or appliances that we can break down and sell for parts. These are some really good products to sell online because many people do not want to go out and purchase a new appliance when their’s breaks. Thankfully, this item still had the original box, instructions, and no missing pieces.

Item Cost: $1.08

Sale Price: $24.99 + $10.50 shipping

Another product to sell online is Polaroid cameras. You’ll need to do your research because some Polaroid cameras are worth more than other. We were surprised that this one was still worth quite a bit being that it’s a newer model. Often times, when we purchase these cameras they don’t include film so we list them as untested and people will still buy them.

There is a funny story with this item. At the outlet store, sometimes things that are supposed to go together get split apart in the process of people sorting through and looking for things. That is what happened in this item… we had to hunt down all the pieces but thankfully we were able to find all the parts. Medical items are great items to sell online.

This was a great find. We were able to find a power outlet in the store to test it before we bought it and it actually worked! We haven’t been able to find very many of these massages that are for the shoulders, back, and thighs so that could be why this one sold for so much

Item Cost: $1.08

Sale Price: $34.99 + $13.67 shipping

We’ve come to learn that if you can find a dual cassette player, it’s worth researching. We have sold a few dual cassette players with success and we are always on the lookout for these. It is important to plug any electronics in and test them before you buy so that you aren’t paying for weight on an item you end up having to throw away (unless it’s something that can be sold for parts).

Item Cost: $1.35

Sale Price: $29.99 + $21.00 shipping

IKEA is a pretty popular brand and being able to sell them new in the package is a great plus! The only downside is, with them being sealed in the package it was hard for people to know what the curtains were supposed to look like. Thankfully we were able to find an IKEA stock photo and included them in the listing pictures.

This is the most fun item we have found! We thought Furby might be outdated, but it turns out people are stilling having fun with them.

Keep out for these products to sell online.
