I know some of you are selling online, either ebay or your own sites. But what are you selling that's making a few bucks? Dd is trying to start a little business selling cosmetics, my neice sells home-made lotions and soaps.

I have heard that handmade soaps and beauty products sell pretty well on etsy.com (etsy only allows contemporary handmade items, or pre 1980s vintage)
The Etsy store is free, with just 5c per listing per month, paid as a 20c for 4 months fee when listing an item. The commission fee is only 3.5% and the site gets a ton of shoppers for handmade stuff
if the cosmetics are not handmade, they could try selling them on Bonanzle.com where they get free store (booth) and listings and only pay a very small commission if it sells. Bonanalze contemporary and vintage items as well as artisan/handmade
