If you have not heard of this closeout store, "Tuesday Morning is a retailer specializing in upscale closeout merchandise, with more than 800 stores across the United States. Our successful concept was founded on a unique philosophy: sell first-quality, famous designer and name-brand merchandise at extraordinarily discounted prices on an event basis. Our 10 major events usually kick off on the first Tuesday of the month. We receive new merchandise shipments daily, and customers can return often to find the shelves replenished with new items." (Tuesday Morning website.)
When shopping for resale, look for brand names you recognize. I've found Black and Decker, Kitchen Aid, Lenox, Fisher Price, Hasbro, Remington, and Wii accessories. If you are scouting for Amazon, be prepared for the market to be flooded with these items in a couple of weeks. Market saturation is always an issue when a national chain has a large clearance sale. In these cases, I save the screen shot of the scan of the item, price my item accordingly at the time of the scan, and wait for the market to return to that situation. It may take 2-3 months to get the price you want. But if you are willing to wait, you will get higher prices. Some of the items I purchased during last summer's clearance sale didn't move until holiday time. So be prepared to wait for the greatest return on your investment.
