eBay has grown popular over the years. It’s for everyone whether you are looking for a bargain or wanting to earn a bit of extra cash or even starting your own business.


People buy and sell from new things to old stuff be it clothing, toys, household gadgets, holidays or even houses.

eBay continues to grow and sellers continue to sell things. There is a high demand of sellers wanting to sell things but sometimes knowing what to sell can be hard.

This has pushed sellers to think outside the box and try out unusual or rather strange things to sell on ebay. Some of the things that have sold on eBay will even surprise you just as I was surprised.

Here are 12 things you never thought you could sell on eBay

1. Empty Baby Food Jars

These are usually sold as a bundle of 6 jars going upwards. If you have a baby and somewhere to store these empty baby food jars you might try selling them and earn a bit of extra cash instead of throwing them in the recycling bin.

2. Used Toilet Roll Tubes

They sell well as a bundle or job lot, buyers need them mostly for artwork, craft work and to make crackers.

3. Empty Perfume Boxes

Good brands of perfume empty boxes or packaging sell very well such as Chanel, Prada, Gucci just to mention a few brands.
