Different hobbies final part

This is the next and final part on wear to get things that you would collect. I would get the newspaper in the middle of the week and check out the weekend tag sales or yard sales. I would spend the friday or saturday morning going to these sales and pick up the items I went for. The next thing I would go is estate auctions. These are really good for getting a lot of antiques,collectables,and bonus boxes. Bonus boxes are boxes they auction off which you can see what is in their but people hardly bid on. I used to get 3 or 4 bonus boxes for $.50 . Then I would go through the boxes , get rid of the trash which was not much and I would sell the remaining items for a big profit.

You have a great plan in place. I was at Goodwill, and the cashier and I were talking about how good the novel, Devil in the White City, happened to be. He said a fellow comes into the store all the time looking for that book. He then sells the book online for much more than the .99 he paid for it.

@Metsrock69 Yes, their items are really in good shape. Salvation Army items require careful examination due to flaws.

I do go to garage sales in the summer, not as much anymore since I do farmer's markets and festivals on the weekends. Also I need to get rid of some of my collectables before I can get any more. I hate clutter and not everything sells when you want it to.

Antiques can be a good collection and often times go on a higher value too after a while.
