Investing in rummage sale books

May 7th, 2011 at 10:58 am

We stopped at a rummage sale today. Didn't find anything for us, but they did have a lot of books. I bought 24 books for .25 a piece, and 1 book for .50. So $6.50 total. The .25 books I know I can sell at our rummage sale for .75 a piece, and then the .50 book I can sell for $1. That would be a profit of $12.50. This is an easy way to make a little extra money. I only buy popular series that I have sold before and know will keep selling, and also make sure they are always in nice condition. The ones I bought today were like brand new, and the were Goosesbumps, Fear Street and Babysitters Club books. They always sell whenever we get any and are easy to store.

    That is really smart! I would always look out for nice mens shoes (I have a thing for shoes) that I could get for cheap at the second hand place and then clean up and sell to lead to a profit on eBay. My favorite was a pair that I got for $3, polished up, and sold for $60 on eBay. They weren't my size, but I was sure glad that I bought them! If you look for the right ones (like your book series, etc.) then you have pretty good insurance that they will sell, too.
