Surprising Things You Can Buy On eBay

eBay is a fantastic tool to help you make a little extra income and declutter your home at the same time. Some take eBay very seriously and trade items full time to make a living, and it’s no surprise considering how much profit some things can make. One of the best things about the site is the fact that you can find the most obscure items you can possibly imagine, so if you can’t stop thinking about a certain toy you used to play with twenty years ago, chances are you’ll probably be able to buy it on eBay! You’d be surprised at some of things there is clearly a big market for, here we take a look at some of the most surprising things you can buy on the popular website.

As creepy as this one seems, if does make a lot of sense when you look into it further. Hair extensions are hugely popular to the point when you rarely see women, in particular, without them. They are part of the current culture of modifying your natural appearance beyond recognition in order to meet the ideals laid out on things like social media. You can get many different kinds of extensions but the most highly sought after are those made from real human hair, which explains why so many people are resorting to trimming their locks to sell on the site.

The more natural the hair the better too, so if you’re planning on selling your hair make sure you don’t trim, dye, or perm it. There are also charities who specialise in creating wigs from real human hair to give to those who have lost theirs due to cancer, so don’t be too concerned if you see human hair popping up on your must-have suggestions!


Some of the most exciting listings you’ll see on eBay are discontinued products from a range of different industries. For example, you can buy decades old software which can still be installed on your computer. Discontinued items can go for a lot of money as there are only so many available to buy, and it is usually collectors who are eyeing them up.

The same goes for technology and toys; you can find old Walkmans still in full working order, which are a far cry from the modern methods of streaming music straight from your phone. Slightly more concerningly, you can also find discontinued food products for sale, although judging by the number of preservatives pumped into a lot of food these days, they’re probably perfectly safe to eat!


Usually you’d buy a vehicle from a reputable dealership or at least a specialist website, but they are also available on eBay if you fancy taking a risk. A lot of sellers do offer the option of going to see the vehicle before putting a bid on it, especially as it would need to be relatively local to collect. There are people who make a living buying and selling vehicles on sites like this but if you are thinking of doing this remember to get insurance to protect yourself, luckily traders insurance can be cheap.

eBay is a treasure trove of some of the most random and intriguing products; it is always worth searching on there if there is something obscure that you’ve been trying to get your hands on.
