Hunting for those items which can be resold at online venues such as eBay, Amazon, Facebook or standalone sites is a never ending process & according to sellers it can be extremely time consuming. Many resellers will already have a selection of regular venues both off & online where they secure a myriad products to tempt their customers. However the majority will agree that you can never have too many options when searching for suitable stock!
