Over the years, I've focused on my favorite niches on eBay -- vintage children's books and ephemera. Occasionally, though, I find something that I want to list that isn't in one of these areas. I usually list these items either once for a 7 day auction or once for a Fixed Price 30 day listing. If the items don't sell, they then go in a donation box for my next trip to Salvation Army to donate items.
A couple of weeks ago I received these coupons in the mail. They are for Purina horse feed. One is for a free 50 pound bag. Great! -- except, I don't have a horse. So, I tried listing them on eBay for a 7 day auction just to see what would happen. I started the auction at 99¢. To my surprise, they bid up to $10.01. Neat! I will certainly list other "free stuff" coupons that I find on eBay. I'm not going out looking for them, but if I find them they will go online.
If you'd like to see the closed auction, you will find it here: Auction for Purina Horse Feed.
