Starter Story

Looking to start a resell business but not quite sure what to start?

The good news is, there are so many opportunities to become an entrepreneur and build an innovative product/service in this line of work.

If you're looking to start your own resell business, there are several low-investment options you can choose from.

We put a list together below of the most profitable resell business ideas you can start today!

Here they are:

1. Start a lego reselling business ($19.9K/year)

Matthew Fiore from Grafton, MA, USA started Summerfield's Toys about 3 years ago, a LEGO reselling business.

  • Revenue: $1,661/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Grafton, MA, USA

When I was 14, I was looking for ways to earn money. One day when visiting my uncle, he explained eBay to me and how he found his niche of selling various antiques. I was fascinated, and eager to start. He supplied me with vintage postcards to sell. It took me a while to research and learn about the postcards and how to productively sell them, but I learned the process and started making some initial sales. However, I quickly recognized postcards weren't my passion, but I knew LEGO was. I picked out some LEGO Minifigures from my own collection to list and sell and in two months, I made $200. As a 14-year-old, this was more money than I’ve ever had!

My model although profitable, was not sustainable, I only had so many Minifigures I was willing to part with. Frustrated, I sat down with my dad, shouting “I wish I could find more LEGO to sell”.

2. Start a sneaker reseller business ($60K/year)

Chris Casseday from Cincinnati, Ohio, USA started 513 Kicks over 3 years ago, a sneaker reseller business.

  • Revenue: $5,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Cincinnati, Ohio, USA

Growing up I was a huge Michael Jordan fan. The 90s were dominated by the Chicago Bulls (except when Michael decided to play baseball), and I soaked it all in. Being such a fan of MJ, I would always notice what shoes he was wearing on the court. Naturally, I had to have whatever pair he was wearing. At this point, the Air Jordan line was already well-established in the market, but nothing compared to what we see today.

Do not let someone else determine your success. It can be easy to look at similar businesses and make assumptions that they are better than yours, causing you to get discouraged.

I have vivid memories of going to a local sneaker store, typically Just For Feet, with my dad. If anyone remembers this store, they were famous for having a basketball hoop inside. This meant that you could take your new kicks for a spin before walking out of the door. It was simply the best.

3. Start a boutique ($396K/year)

Kara Brook Brown from Maryland, USA started Waxing Kara about 8 years ago, a boutique.

  • Revenue: $33,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 3
  • Location: Maryland, USA

Waxing Kara grew organically from my work as an artist. I paint with encaustic, a paint made with beeswax, and in 2010, I started beekeeping on Maryland’s Eastern Shore to harvest wax for my encaustic paintings.

I became captivated by honey production and the plight of honey bees in this country. I learned about the importance of bees to the sustainability of our food supply, and the preciousness of honey, especially its nurturing and healing properties. Before launching Waxing Kara, I became a honey bee advocate and began raising bees on a small scale and have increased each year until 2020 when I will manage 18 hives on our 102-acre farm on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. For the bees, I began planting food sources such as sunflower, bergamot, and lavender. The goal was to cultivate a complex, organic environment that provides bees essential nutrients through nature. We have planted at least 40 acres of wildflowers, fruit trees, and berry bushes, an incredible habitat all for bees (and other winged creatures) with consistent blooms from May through October.

There isn’t one single life experience or educational achievement that has put me where I am today. Instead, it’s been a series of inspirations along the way. There was no master plan. In hindsight, everything that happened has flowed like honey to lead me down this path.

4. Start a subscription box business ($4.8K/year)

Lindsay Scholz from Saint Louis, Missouri, USA started Vowed Box Co. about 3 years ago, a subscription box business.

  • Revenue: $400/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Saint Louis, Missouri, USA

I got married in 2016, and if we’re being honest, the entire process was overwhelming – the wedding industry is saturated with ideas and opinions on “how” you should celebrate your big day, but I quickly realized that getting married is not a one-size-fits-all process.

Honestly, my goal was to sell just one box the first week that the website went live, but I ended up selling five!

Leading up to my wedding, my friends had a difficult time finding bridal gifts that aligned with my interests and taste. I had never really dreamed of a big fancy wedding, and I definitely viewed myself as a non-traditional bride. On the flipside, I also had a hard time finding gifts and keepsakes for my bridesmaids – we were all a little bit quirky, and a lot of the overly feminine and girly gifts in the market just weren’t for us!
