Money Making Idea: Grouping Individual Pieces Into a Set
I was talking to one of my staff members today and she was asking for ideas on how to make a little extra money to invest. I told her about selling things on Ebay, Craigslist, and Etsy. She told me she'd thought of the idea of buying table setting pieces (napkins, napkin rings, table cloths, etc.) cheaply at yard sales and grouping them together into themed, color coordinated sets to sell online.
I told her I thought that was a great money making idea- she could get the pieces at very little cost and sell them as a group for a nice profit.
Some people are just not good at color coordinating or design and will pay good money for beautiful sets of anything that are already grouped together in an attractive way.
It allows your customer to not have to think or do the work required to put together a group of useful or beautiful things themselves
You could use this concept with so many things:
- Make color coordinated outfits from individual clothing items you get at yard sales or thrift stores.
- Put together a “starter kit” of items for a new hobby or a sport someone may be taking up.
- Car parts: Sell a tuneup kit for a specific model of car. You could also resell a group of trim pieces or engine parts you get for cheap at a junkyard.
- Home decor items that are themed or color coordinated to work together in a single room.
As you can see, there are a ton of ways you can group cheaper items together as a package and sell at a profit to those who need them.
