    I use this method all the time. It will require some initial investment but with some items you can yield a high return.

    Go to your local charity shop or car boot.

    Find a few items which are decently priced and in good condition. I do not buy items that I myself would not purchase, why? I don't know, it's just my way of thinking but every items I have ever bought from a charity shop it has sold.

    Once you have got a few items you have a choice:

    -List it on gumtree/craiglist etc.
    -Resell at a car boot (In my city centre we have an market every week where you can rent a hut for £50)
    -Sell on ebay

    I don't like to sell on ebay because of all the fee's.
    I find that car boots are good to sell items which may be tables, electronics, bicycles etc.
    I sell in the UK and I find with gumtree a lot of my items will sell, but people will always try to haggle you. So always mention fixed price if you do not want the hassle of haggling.

    So there you go. It easy as 1-2-3

    Thanks

    pretty basic, not groundbreaking but, still a good reminder of how to make an extra 100 bucks in a month that you can use to invest in articles for a website or something... Thanks for bringing the old buy low sell high concept back :)

    You could alternatively buy from the wholesalers around here and sell the way that comforts you. :)
