Sometimes people use anything and something interchangably. But it depends... "Do you sell SOMEthing?" - Asking if there is some single object the person does sell. "Do you sell ANYthing?" - Asking if there's nothing the person doesn't sell. here you can read a more detailed explanation. http://hubpages.com/hub/Grammar_Mishaps__Something_vs_Anything
