eBay is great way to make enough money to pay bills, go on vacations, buy groceries, hire someone to clean your house, even if your dedicated enough earn enough money to make car payments.
You can sell craft supplies, Reselling Clothing, shoes and boots, accessories, Electronics such as gophones, cellphones, modems, routers. Games, collectible and vintage products. What I found is that my crafts does not sell good on ebay it’s better on sites like Amazon Handmade, Etsy and Artfire.But you can try just because crafts doesn’t work for me dosn’t mean it won’t you. This is what I found to be true for me on eBay!. Make sure the products you resale is in good condition, no torn or holes in the clothing you sale no worn spots on the shoes, Purses must in good condition otherwise it won’t sell. You can find resellers how to videos on youtube created account today so you can get great info from them.
Is a great of selling clothing, shoes,and boots, hats hair accessories purses , Jewelry, Makeup, it also has Arts and Crafts department, You can sell wreaths but remember Poshmark only ships in Priority that is $6.79 so make your wreaths small enough to ship within that price range. I seen Mason jars with florals in it. For a guide for Poshmark please click on this site. Also there’s a 15% after you sell a product. If you want to sell on Posh start selling from your closet first then you can see if you like it and if it’s for you! It works differently than eBay does.
You would have to do a 30 minute method which includes following people who follows you, Follow new comers for 30 minute and welcome them and Share one of their products in the closet. Create 3 listings a day. If you don’t have 3 listing a day then update the old ones click I think post something like that it’ll renew it to look like it’s a new listing. That’s the 30 minute method. Watch Rebecca the Boss lady on youtube. This lady works on Poshmark and eBay. I have been watching for a very long time. Poshmark works if you work it I have a friend that’s successful at selling. I am not a expert I just have learn things from my friend and Youtubers.
Bonanza is a third party of eBay and Etsy. it works just the same you can import your listings from eBay and Etsy, however I do not know the fees on there. Must read before you open an account, And they sell everything. I sold 3 things on this site.
Etsy works like this the fees are 5% on the shipping and 20 cents on the pictures, and of course your Paypal fees. Great for all kinds of crafts and handmade goods. Got to get your SEO’s which is Search Engine Optimization right to get noticed on Google and Etsy. You can sell vintage products, collectibles, Wreaths, Floral centerpieces jewely, photos and more. I haven’t been successful at Etsy like I should be.Get Your 40 free listing here
Amazon has 2 ways of selling, One sell them on your own and 2 FBA which means Fullid by Amazon this way you pay 40 a month I just round it up. I haven’t thought FBA’s but I will learn how it goes and update this blog later.
EnclosingYou can not dropship from Amazon to eBay. And you can dropship anywhere on Etsy, Bonanza and eBay. Against their policy’s so make sure you only ordering from wholesale companies and always get on their community boards if you want to communicate the people to get your questions answered
1. Wine Bottles, beer bottles to make Chandeliers and Candles
2. You can make soap dishes and jewelry trays with China, personally, I haven’t made money but I’m sure there’s a lot of Etsy sellers that have.
.3. Repurposing Blue Jeans with bling’s on it and make purses, Apron’s, etc. I sold a Bling purse with Rhinestone on it and sold it for $20 Chaching it was a $10 profit.
4.Repurposing Floral Baskets and Wreaths you can buy them cheap from the Thrift Stores. If you’re starting out in the Floral business or the gift basket business this is the best way to get started buying them cheap and design them the way you want to. Makes a fabulous gift. Wreath’s you can find at the Thrift store turn around and make a Profit or take them apart and redesign your way. I do that a lot.
5. Repurpose Wooden shelves, Mirrors, and other wooden boxes you can find at the Thrift store. I sold Mirrors and Heart shape shelves for $15. I did all the work to them. One of these days I’ll repurpose and do a video on it.
I hope this topic will help you decide what you want to repurpose and flip at your next Garage Sale or Flea-market
If your this is your first time at Craft shows I’m going to give you information about what to ask you’re an organizer before you even think about doing a craft show. This is to help you not to get discouraged and throw in the towel. Because of sometimes shows maybe their first show or annual shows. I wished I learned how to ask these questions a long time ago.

Here are the Questions you need to ask. Bookmarked this so you can refer back.
Is this your first time for the craft show or an annual show?
How many people did you have last year and how many people to expect there at the show?
How much does it cost for a booth and how big is the booth?
Is it one booth do you have an option for 2 or more tables? which this is usually a double booth!

Is it a one day or 2-day booth etc?
Do you need a Tax id for this event? P.S, usually, do
Do you accept PayPal, Square? or is it electronic form where you fill in the info?
Always ask for the deadline to get the money in and also ask them can you make 2 payments if you can’t afford it, and make arrangements to get the money in on time!
To Do list to Prepare for the shows.
Make sure you have at least $60.00 cash break it up in 20,10,5, and 1 dollars bills for shows for a small event, and $100 cash the same breakdown for a big event.

I hope helped that I helped you with these questions and to do list.
Here are some of my Pictures of the Booth so you can see what I’m talking on the Displays
Do you like a simple Chilly recipe that will be a hit for the whole family, using these simple ingredients. I’ll even give you the brands I use for some of the ingredients: Ingredients:
1. 1lb of Ground Chuck hamburger
2. 1 can Dole, Best choice or Great Value Mexican style Dice tomatoes.
3. 1 can Chili beans, Bush’s, Best Choice or Great Value are my Favorites.
4. 2 Tbl of Tomato paste
5. Medium onion chopped
6. 1 bell pepper chopped Green or Red are the best
7. On the can of water.
8. Mrs. Dash seasoning
9. 2 cloves of garlic chopped
10. Mexican powder or seasoning any brand
Chopped up these ingredients onions: bell peppers, onions and 2 cloves of garlic. Put all of them in the pan with the hamburger and brown them together then drain the hamburger mixture in a colander or strainer. Put the mixture in a dutch oven and add the rest of the ingredients, diced tomatoes, chilly beans, tomato paste, and water. Stir all together then add the chilly seasoning, and Mrs. Dash I usually put about 3 shakes in the mixture. Bring it to a boil on high after it comes to a boil lower the Temperature to low stir on occasion. Just a hint if you have a gas stove like I do make sure the chilly mixture is on low no lid on it due to it burns the bottom of the pan. Let it cook on the stove for 20 minutes.
Do you love Chicken and Noodles? here’s an easy recipe for 2-6 people:
A medium bag of Reeses frozen egg noodles
2 cans of cooked chicken breast or leftover Rotisserie chicken 2 cups chopped
Box of Chicken Broth either best choice or Great value
1 cup of water
2 TBL of cream of chicken soup
1/2 stock of celery
Small or Medium whole Onion
1 green bell pepper
2 garlic cloves diced or a can of chopped.
Mrs. Dash Garlic and herb
Chopped up the celery, onions and diced the garlic or chop garlic and bell pepper once they’re all chop put them in the broth 1 box of the broth, add your chicken with the water that’s in it and then add the water a little at a time to get the right amount of water between 1/2 to a cup. That’s why I put down the 1 cup of water also add the Mrs. Dash and pepper to the desired amount .now bring everything to a boil once it’s boiling turn it down to between medium-low. Stirring constantly so it won’t get stuck on the bottom of the pan! Cook for 10 minutes or until noodles is soft and then add 2 Tbl of cream of chicken and stir well below is the finished results in the pan you can make Mash potatoes or eat it like it is.
Are you on a Fixed income such as Social Security? do you want to make a wreath that is beautiful wreath make under $100 getting these florals from Wal-mart and dollar tree products? Use the following Wal-mart clearance where the florals are they will be usually 97cents on the bottom row at the end of the florals. Now if you want to make a commission on it as well use Ebates see my blog on smartphone apps to see how it works. The first thing you would do is Pick your carnations of pink and red here’s the link to Wal-mart.com I do not have an affiliate link yet for Walmart just giving you ideas on florals and also at the dollar tree for filler flowers and foliage too this store will save you money! You 2 bundles of red Carnations, 2 bundles pink carnations 2 bundles spring bushes 2 or 3 bundles of Grass Walmart2 or 3 bundles of Filler Flowers From DT Butterflies on spring bushes. if you have any pinecones add it too.

Or you can shop for beautiful Wreaths at my Etsy shop
Here are the Smartphone apps that are working for me right now. These are passive ways of making Money with your phone.
The first one I want to discuss is ebates it’s on the desktop and your smartphone. You can earn commission on ebates just by shopping online at these Major retailers Walmart, Amazon, Michaels, Kohls, Hobby lobby plus more. How it works is you installed on extensions on Google, IE ( internet explorer, FireFox. My options would be Firefox and
Google make sure though your cookies are not blocked if you don’t get your commission just send in a ticket and tell ebates what happen and put in the shopping trips and they’ll look into it and see what happens. I think you have a $10 sign up bonus but you need to activate it in order to get your bonus. Also, refer 3 friends or family and get a $25.00 referral bonus. Here is my personal link to the site. Earn Commission on Ebates
Below is a screenshot of what I made since last year and to date. the Refer and Earn rewards program.
Next app I use on a regular base that really works for me is Fetch Rewards go to your google play store or apple store and download it. Use my Referal code AJ2VA. to get started. When you get it to download for your first receipt on the scan button on the phone of the app and then click on the camera icon to the right scan your receipt it’ll show you if you qualify for the points. I have 3,953 points and my lifetime receipts are 36 receipts and spent approximately $611.65 since I began the app. I’m sorry I do not have a screenshot of it. This link will give you some ideas about the rewards you can get so click here Fetch Rewards This app is the one that I prefer to start with.
Ibotta is another good one it works if you hunt down items in the different stores, I don’t advise doing all your shopping at Wal-mart cause all Wal-marts not alike they just sell what customer like in the store they buy it at! That’s my tip to you. The lower the income area the different product they sell. To get instructions on how it works click on here. When you sign up using my referral code kbjhdnd you’ll get $5 and I’ll get $5 Shop a variety of stores including Grocery stores, Joann’s and more. You will have teams on Ibotta and I have about 25. The only downfall I see on ibotta it really works if you work it. Nevertheless, it’s discouraging when you Walmart and what they have the app not even in stock or they don’t have don’t have the products. The link is here https://ibotta.com/r/kbjhdnd I have $16.00 in it.
Last one I use I got about $12 on this as well as Ibotta is inbox dollars you can earn money by doing trials and survey’s on your phone and desktop also get paid for watching videos Inbox dollars just be really careful on this app because when the trial is up you’ll have to pay for what you buy as a subscriptions
These are all I have, for now, please comment if these apps work for you!
Thank you so much for checking out my blog, My Journey began with my home decor business!
I’ve started making candles in 2013 when I was snowed in my home for the winter months, I’ve decided to start making candles as a way to make some extra cash. I didn’t sell enough to make my money for supplies back so I went into repurposing Mirrors and shelves and didn’t make money very well I sold $35 here to $50 there it’s not until I found my passion in making grapevine Wreaths. I went to a class at the Library May of last year, when I got back from traveling. Here was my first Wreath and I have came along ways from then. The one oon the left was the first one at the Library where a lady helped accomplished this beauty since then I worked on it changed out some of the pinecones and adding different flowers to this wooden wreath. I say I came along ways from when I started with wreath making.
Now I am teaching Women and Men from the ages of 25 and up to make Beautiful Grapevine Wreaths for all season for the home or front door.
