Do you think January is a good or bad time to sell on Ebay?

I have loads of stuff ready to be listed, but I'm kinda thinking that everyone will be in massive debt post-Christmas and that there won't be much buying?

Any thoughts/ experience?

I'm buying, because I can't get out to the sales much. Guess it would depend on what you have though - anything obviously Christmas present-ish won't go. I'd suggest health/beauty/fitness things would be popular.

I have sold loads of dice and 2 handwarmers but not much else, I haven't bothere listing second hand stuff yet, but I will be soon. Loads of toys and I thought it was too soon after Christmas for people to want to buy more toys.

it depends on what you are listing I think, a lot of people get money for christmas so want to spend it. I am listing some baby stuff thursday (10p listing day) but it will be buy it nows.

It's mostly children's toys and books, which is why I think it's too early.
