Hi there everybody,
I am just wondering if any of your super gurus can help with the kind of idea I need to turn or flip a thousand dollars and continue from there onward? I joined Salehoo with the believe that I could used this money, the only money I have in my entire life to change my financial situation; any super woman or man here to help me out in the right direction? I will be glad to get the best advice from anybody who can show me where and how to start with this little amount of money!
Thanks a trillion!

Start with Garage sales and Goodwill stores. Take some time to look around, buy a couple of things even if you lose a little. Search eBays completed listings and get a feel for what is selling and for how much. You might be surprised what sells.
Certain plastic soldiers sell well as do baccarat glasses. At least when I was selling collectibles. Certain records sell well but sometimes not the ones you think. They have to be rare. I sold an Arthur GUthrie 3 record set for 175.00 to England. Stay away from any type of sports cards unless you know one is very rare. An AROD rookie card will sell for 4$ unless its the right one which will sell for 200$ And an Elvis 45 can sell for 500$ or more if its 1st press otherwise 5$.

I had 3 Bob Seger records and only one sold because it was a rare concert pressing.

Costume jewelry only sells in lots of 20 or more but interesting pieces will sell for 5 to 10$.

Bags of legos will sell. If its a big bag you could get over 50$ bucks.

Silver pieces sell pretty good. I had a lot of silver jewelry and sold in singles and lots. They went pretty good.

Anyway, it's an idea. Hope it helps.

@1UNIVERSE: You could also start by selling a few old things from around your home - let it be like your 'practice products'. I'm sure you got a couple or may be even several things that are still in great condition but are not being used - clothes that you don't fit you (or other family members), old appliances/toys and other things you've been hiding in your closet.

If you do, then you can save whatever amount of money you have right now for when you are ultimately ready to invest in products, such as those being mentioned by planes :)

Now's a great time to start selling! All the best.

There is a great auction site from the goodwill called Shopgoodwill. They selll just about everything. Buy some stuff for pennies on the dollar. Then you can turn around and double or even triple your profits. Only the goodwill posts so you know you won't get scammed.

Thanks for your suggestion, Beth! :)

This could be a site worth visiting, not only do you get to sell you items but you are able to help out as well...

Cheers
