they’ll go to garage sales, thrift stores and estate sales and buy things and run home and sell it on ebay.
the more professional ones will also have an amazon seller account so they can sell them there too.
watching these guys made me want to see if i could first sell all the crap I have in my house and then maybe i could think about being a junk flipper like my hero fred g sanford.
as i was watching one of these guys i noticed i had this Obama action figure, still in the box, under the tv.
so i looked on ebay to see how many other people were selling them. Just one guy… for $190 shipped.
like me, the guy is super honest and mentions that a corner of the box is slightly damaged… just like mine is.
but inside, obi wan obama is experiencing no drama.
for some reason i went to amazon to see if they sold it there still, after four years, and not only do they, but it reminded me that that’s where i bought this… for $16.34
however their resellers are selling it for between $400-$450. so this is what i’m thinking. i’m thinking about writing a less dramatic ebay headline than
Obama Star Wars Rare Jedi Knight Figure Purple lightsaber New In box has damage
and list it at $325. i’ll show them the minor blemish on the corner and if they choose to go for the $200 one, fine. scram. now i have the lowest price Obama and i will profit over $300.
millions of people love our greatest black president.
there are two who want this super rare weird action figure.
