re: Estate sale finds - 3/4 - 2 homeruns - theantiquetiger
[quote]Did you do this before ebay was around? [/quote] No, I’ve been doing this about twenty years. eBay is where I learned the value of things. If I bought something for a dollar that I thought was cool, get home and realize it wasn’t valuable, I would look at similar items on eBay, that were v...

[quote]who made a fortune going to estate sales in Alabama and Mississippi and buying mostly vintage furniture[/quote] I know furniture, but it is more of a business, not a hobby. It takes a lot of work to turn stuff like that. There is great money in it, but it is a full time job. Stuff like ...

[quote]What do you use to estimate their resell value?[/quote] eBay (sold items) is the best price guide ever made. It is real time, and it shows exactly what an item sold for. For example: The Griswold found today, it has sold for anywhere between $180-$220. ...

[quote]Do you have an idea of the value when you buy these items?[/quote] Yes and no. I’ve been doing this for so long, I have a good idea of what to buy. I knew as soon as I saw the Griswold for $42, it was a great find. The Stanley plane, I’ve dealt with before (not this one), and I knew I cou...

[quote]Name checks out[/quote] Damn straight. At work, there’s kind of an unwritten honor of driving the oldest truck in the unit. When a old guy retired a few years ago, he had a 1960 pickup. When he retired, it made my truck the oldest. Another guy drives a 2006, and he is always asking me ...

Who here drives an old beater for your main vehicle? - theantiquetiger
I see guys at work buying new trucks every couple years, have never not had a car note, and they laugh at me for driving a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi. It has 137K miles, less than $1500 in repairs (not including routine maintenance). The Ole Gray Mare just won’t die. I didn’t even buy her new, I got...
