Let me start buy saying I’m not trying to sell you anything, No secret formula for success. Just something I’ve been thinking about doing for some time. I have been buying and selling on the internet since 2002, E-Bay, Craigslist and various forums… In 2011 I started the year with $20 and by the 1st of July I managed to convert my original $20 to over $1800 by just buying stuff at Swap meets, Yard Sales and off the Internet and reselling it on the above mentioned sites. My only problem was I have always been into R/C… Cars, Trucks and Airplanes and when an off road track opened close by I spent all $1800 on a new R/C Truck and started racing. Needless to say that lasted about 2 months and I still didn’t have my Unisaw. This year I’m going to try and use this Blog to document every purchase and sale to see if I can reach my goal of a Dewalt 13” Planer and a new SawStop,Jet or Delta Saw. The Woodworking Show comes to So. California around October every year so that’s going to be my target date.
So let the fun begin… I got really lucky today when I bought a box full of Old Stanley parts for $15 at the swap meet this morning. After coming home and going thru all the pieces I realized that there was a complete #8 a Union #7 that’s missing a couple parts and some extra vintage stanley pieces. I believe I can at least triple my money on this. I have already listed these on the Bay (user name is farkmox). For those of you in the So. California area one of the big swap meets every month is at the Rosebowl in Pasadena. Hopefully I’ll be able to go next Sunday. lots of antiques. I’ll try to post at least every week with the total and what has been sold… For now I spent $15 and have $5 in the bank. Thanks for reading… Should be fun.
