What are the best items to buy and then sell for profit on Ebay?

Hi everyone,

I just want to know what the best items to buy and then sell on eBay are to make a profit. For an example my dad’s best friend buys rare spoons and then sells them for profit. Has anybody got any ideas?

Serious answers only please no time wasters.

Thanks
