I started selling on ebay in the Fall of 2008. While I was cleaning out my sons closet on ebay and was selling his old Halloween costumes and other items that we no longer used. One day I was in a recycling center and they had tons of brand new packaged shoelaces that a factory had donated. I thought to myself " I wonder if I could sell these on ebay". I bought a bag full of shoelaces and put them on ebay. They began selling immediately. Today I still purchase from the recycling center and I am also importing shoelaces from China and Hong Kong. I also purchase some wholesale shoelaces on ebay and from US manufacturers. Currently, I am selling footwear accessories on ebay, ecrater, bonanzle, and Overstock.com.
Here is a list of places to sell online.
