Spot & flog from car boot/garage sales.

If you've an eye for car booty, buy items cheaply at car boot sales, and sell them at a profit on eBay or other auction sites. The big money lies in spotting collectibles to sell on, so do some research on the net first. Be sure to arrive early to beat off other bargain hunters.

How much? The earning potential increases with your knowledge of rare items and collectible brands, and a little luck doesn't go amiss either; if you're in the right place at the right time this could net you £100s extra a year.

One thing that helps is advertise advertise advertise... Make sure people know what you're selling, so they're more likely to discover what you have to sell...

I sell cocaine on eBay. It's a pretty good source of income. I always call it Shmocain, so the coppers don't get wise.

I like to do this with old film cameras. So many people just don't know how much they're actually worth.
