This is off topic – sort of a “break” from our regularly scheduled program about selling public domain on eBay. *giggle*
You remember that I buy and sell “collectible games” on Amazon – right? Well – maybe I haven’t mentioned it before – anyway – collectible games is something I regularly source and sell on Amazon. I buy them from thrift stores and sell them as “complete games”.
Complete Games is the key… you can not sell games on Amazon that are missing pieces.
Well…. I have purchased a ton of games that are missing pieces. If they are valuable enough – I will source out the missing pieces on Ebay or wait for a duplicate game to show up in a thrift store.
At one point I had STACKS and PILES of games that I couldn’t sell on Amazon and I was running out of room. Something had to give.
A copy of Deb Henry’s “Pieces Make Profits” is on my hard drive – and I finally took a good long look. I was desperate to find a solution for my storage issue.
After spending an entire day pulling pieces and parts out of all those games and sorting them into bags I now have all these small parts in one small box. I have no idea if I saved “good stuff or not”. I even saved the “cool looking” game boards.
It’s as if Deb Henry gave me “permission” to get rid of all the extra bulky boxes and keep the parts that will hopefully sell for profit.
BTW – If you aren’t on Deb’s subscriber list – you should be, she shares some really good stuff! She is an eBay Education Specialist – so she is one of my “go to” people when I get back into selling on eBay.
I’ve actually used a few of the pieces – to complete collectible game sets for my Amazon business.
NOTE: I buy game pieces on eBay all the time – why shouldn’t I learn to sell them as well?
BUT – It’s selling low dollar products on eBay that makes me nuts. Seriously… why would you sell something with potential profit of $3 or less?
While reading the guide… I can see the potential of selling these pieces. When you look at the numbers in mass – it does seem as if it would be “worth the time/effort” to sell off my game pieces and game boards.
Even if I only made a practice of “clearing out” game pieces and game boards once every two months – it can add up to a nice chunk of change at the end of the day. And… Deb Henry proved it in “Pieces Make Profits”
Because Deb spent so much time researching this subject and then showing the results – I have a nice list of games to be on the look out for. This is a “different” list than games I’m going to sell on Amazon. These are games I will be sourcing just for the “parts”… and some of these parts sell for much bigger “money” than a buck or two. We are talking in the $30 range for one game piece. Amazing.
In fact – if you shop at thrift stores at all – you need this guide. It will be a “holy cr*p” moment. (It was for me).
And… you don’t have to leave your comfy chair to source the game pieces. Deb shows how she sourced everything on eBay! And… what her profit potential for her eBay sourcing would be. I can see now that this “MUST” be part of my own business model.
- I’m already sourcing games.
- I plan to get back into selling on eBay again.
- These game pieces also sell on Etsy very well.
Seems like a good plan to me. And not far off what I’m already doing in my business model.
