Like lots of eSellers I go to garage sales to check out treasures. I have found collectible treasures, even new stuff in boxes that I can sell on eBay or send into Amazon through FBA. I also frequently check out the free section of craigslist to see if there is anything I can sell and get a bit of profit. Lots of people are happy to give things away – especially at the end of sales. But I have often read: I want my precious item (they always think it is precious) to go to a family that really needs it – not for someone to sell on eBay. I have been turned away personally at a garage sale, because I admitted I was going to try to sell the used VHS tapes she wanted to give away on eBay.
