The real issue is:

Do you want to spend hours a day doing searches on eBay for all sorts of weird spellings and listing conventions? Do you want to search all of the various eBay sites throughout the world? When any single piece one of a kind item comes up at a good price, it will go fast. There will not be people jumping up and down saying “look at this”. They will just buy it and move on. The only time you’ll get a hint is when somebody lists a bunch of the same thing. Then who ever finds it will buy what they want / need / can afford / crave. After that they will mention it on a list somewhere.
