You can find interior and exterior goods on our marketplaces like The Home Depot, Lowe’s Liquidation or Costco Wholesale Liquidation Auctions.

Health & Beauty

Summer is the time to slather on the sunscreen and the self-tanners. Get your customers’ faces and bodies prepped for sunny days outside with health and beauty essentials. Shop marketplaces like Target Auction Liquidations and Walgreen’s for top brand names in summer skincare and beauty must-haves.


From stylish sandals to tanks and tees in trendy neon or tie-dye, summer season’s fashion must-haves (at a discount) are always appealing to shoppers. Keep your customers looks current with on-point apparel from B-Stock marketplaces: Macy’s, HSN Liquidation, Hudson’s Bay Liquidation Auctions, and more.

Toys, Kids & Baby

With school not in session, it’s all about finding creative ways to keep kids engaged and entertained this summer- both inside and out! Toys and games can be a parent’s sanity-saver over the summer. Check out the auction lots of kid-friendly activities, toys and games on marketplaces like Walmart Liquidation Auctions, B-Stock Supply, and others.

Seasonal Decor

With plenty of 4th of July and Labor Day parties planned, party-focused and holiday decor is always a big hit! Items that make entertaining easy and stars and stripes-themed decorations will get bought up in a hurry. Source summer, seasonal party-themed inventory on marketplaces like Target Liquidation Auctions, Walgreen’s, or Wayfair.com Liquidation Auctions.

Summer Activities

For the campers who could use some new camp chairs to the kids you can’t keep out of the pool, stocking specific summer activity gear is a solid sourcing strategy. Pool floats, kayaks, coolers, and cooking supplies, you can find all of these summer activity must-haves on marketplaces like Sam’s Club, Costco Wholesale Liquidation Auctions, or Target Auction Liquidations.

Sourcing summer essentials now will heat up sales for you in the coming months. Just think about the items you’d be on the hunt for, and chances are, your customers will be too. Happy sourcing!

"I feel so confident shopping and bidding on items knowing that I am going to get what I paid for. And if not, there’s a killer customer service team that’s going to make sure everything’s alright in the end. That’s huge. It’s hard to take that risk when you’re first starting out."
