Thrift Store Item to Sell on eBay - Blue Remington Hot Rollers
This tip has been around for a while, but if you are new to eBay you might not be aware of it. Gently used blue Remington hair curlers are big sellers on eBay, sometimes selling for over $80 for a set. When I first heard about these a couple of years ago, I couldn't figure out what was so special about them until I saw a lisiting with the word "pageant" in the title.
Blue Remington Tight Curls make the spiral Shirley Temple curls worn by little girls in beauty pageants. The rollers heat up fast and stay hot for a long time. Pageant Moms love these! They often come to eBay to buy them.
If you find a set at a thrift store, grab it! Even if a few rollers are missing, or the clips are not included, that is ok. The clips are available at beauty supply stores.
Here are a few completed listings for used Remington Tight Curls:
