Children's Book Lots

Want to know what a sure sale for me is on eBay???
Children's. Book. Lots.
I was just looking back at my records, and since I started selling on eBay again (about 18 months ago) I realized that I have sold every single children's book lot that I've listed.  And I've listed 70 lots! 
So I've made a believer out of myself. ;) 
Children's book lots, in clean gently pre-owned condition sell great on eBay!  A few of the sets I've had to sit on for a few months, but they've all eventually sold and always for very good money considering that my investment for books is usually a quarter.
If you have the patience and room to store and collect books to make lots YOU SHOULD DO IT! 
It's been great for me.
Good night! :)
p.s. Want to know what books sell?  Easy peasy... do a search for book lots in the children's category on eBay and you'll get all kinds of good ideas for what to pick up while you're out shopping.

Thanks for the tip! Will have to definitely look into children's books.

That's about 80% of what I sell and I love it. I store the thousands of books I've purchased in my basement! The best set of books to keep your eye out for are Stephen Cosgrove's Serendipity books. I sold 17 of those for $150.

When my daughter was little, I used to buy her the Serendipity books. She had a nice big collection of the books. She is now 39 yo and I think she still has her books. She loved them! That's a great BOLO tip!
