Childrens clothing in good condition and still with tags on.
You could buy off e-bay from the wholesale section.
If I could just give you some advice,if you buy off e-bay to re-sell,then have two accounts. So you have one you buy with and the other you sell on,that way people can't see what you have bought and then selling it on for.
Are you any good at crafts you could sell a few home made cards.
There are people on e-bay who will sell you lists for wholesalers. But research on the web should turn up a few results.

I've sold:-

-Re-useable nappies
-Mobile phones - beware of scams though
-I bought things with a decent label from charity shops given them a wash and sold them on! Bought one dress for £8 sold it for £38!
-Shoes / trainers
-3 for 2 items

Don't bother with books on ebay sell them on Amazon unless they are really heavy as you won't get enough postage costs from Amazon.

Don't get addicted like me or else you spend every waking hour packing things in bubble wrap and queuing down the post office!
