Coffee Mug BOLO to Sell on eBay - Moomin of Arabia Mugs

Coffee mugs can be a high profit eBay flip. They are often priced at $1 or less, are fairly easy to ship, and are usually abundant everywhere pickers find inventory. And Starbucks mugs are definitely not the only high profit game in town.

Moomins are characters in a Swedish collection of books and comic books published between 1945 and 1993, illustrated by Tove Jansson. Moomins are part of pop culture in Sweden and other countries and appear in TV shows. There is even a Moomin theme park in Finland.

A Moomin sort of looks like a hippopotamus. So they are pretty recognizable once you know what they are.

The bottom logo of the mug looks like this:

Some Moomin mugs are highly sought after and can sell for hundreds of dollars, especially the limited editions.  Here are some screen shots of sales of Moomin Mugs on eBay over the last 90 days on eBay:

Moomin Mugs are not necessarily vintage. A Moominvalley theme park was opened in Japan in 2019 and those mugs showed up on eBay shortly thereafter. Those mugs look like this:

The Japan theme park mugs are currently selling on eBay for $250-$300.

When you are looking through mugs to flip on eBay, don't forget the Moomins!
