10 items that sell well on eBay though most people usually throw them away.
I have found that people buy the strangest things. Things that I would normally think about throwing out, however since doing some research on ebay, I have now started listing these items on eBay and people buy them!
Yes the humble carrier bag is always in demand on ebay. It is usually the designer carrier bags, or the study kind of women’s clothes store bags with the rope style handles that do well, and any kind of unusual looking bags as people collect these.
Empty Perfume Bottles
Empty perfume bottles are good sellers on ebay for two reasons. If you take some refillable perfume bottles (for example Angel perfume) back to a stockist, you can often get the bottle refilled with the perfume for less than it costs to buy a brand new bottle. Also, people collect perfume bottles, especially designer names, unusual shape bottles, miniatures and limited edition bottles.

These sell well on eBay as people buy them and refill them which is much more environmentally friendly than buying new ones all the time.
Theme Park Guides
Some people like to collect these kind of things, especially if it is somewhere they have visited for example and have lost or damaged their original one.
Craft items can range from cardboard toilet rolls, pieces of shiny paper, bits of ribbon from chocolate boxes, buttons etc. Anything like this which is usually discarded can be stored and when you have a reasonable amount of mixed items, list it on ebay as craft items and your pieces of junk could be someone elses treasure, just what they need to start or finish their next craft project.
Coupons and Vouchers
If you have any sort of coupons or vouchers for particular brands or stores and you are not going to use them, put them on ebay because somebody will want them. Say, for example you have £10 off for a particular store that you got for free through the post. Put it on eBay, and if you get, for example £7 for it, you have made £7 and the winning bidder has then earnt £3 off his or her favourite store. You both win!
It doesn’t matter if they are old, or have writing on the back of them, there are many people who collect postcards of all kinds of things, funny ones, landmarks, scenery, animals. Put together a bundle and get them listed on ebay.
Old Concert Tickets and Programmes
Fans and collectors will pay money for your old ticket stubs and programmes from concerts and gigs.
Broken Electrical Items
If you have an electrical item, camera, hand held game machine or anything along those lines that is broken and you think it is beyond repair, don’t throw it away. As long as you state clearly in your listing that the item is broken you can list it on ebay, and people always buy these sort of things. There is usually someone that knows how to fix them, or are just looking for working parts out of them to fix their own.
Old mobile Phones
Again, like the electrical items, it doesn’t matter if they are working or not, as long as you state if they are faulty or broken in the listing. These sell well for the parts.
