Where to find stuff to sell online

Finding something to sell in an online store can be as easy as turning a hobby into a business. Do you love to create things from polymer clay? Maybe you enjoy making baby clothes but everyone you know has older children now? Perhaps you are an avid model railroader and love to build scale miniatures for train sets? Or small dollhouse rooms?

I know a person that sells doll making materials through eBay. She is a dollmaker herself and just started buying large amounts of the things she uses and resells them to others in small amounts - just enough for a doll. I have bought quite a few things from her myself. (search for MorezMore on eBay).

When your care recipient moved in did you have to clear out a library worth of books that had been tucked into the spare bedroom? If so, then how about taking that huge collection of books that are now away in the garage or basement and turning them into an online used bookstore?

And finally there are wholesale drop-shippers. I'm pretty sure that you will need to get a business license, but then you can order things at wholesale cost as they are ordered by your customers and have them drop shipped (shipped directly from the person you bought them from to the person you sold them to).
