What we buy.
That is a loaded question. Some dealers will
tell you. “I buy everything.” That maybe true if you are willing to
sell your items for 25 cents on the dollar. That way they can make a
purchase and figure out what it is worth later. We need to maintain
a profit line to stay in business, but we will not take advantage of
our customers to do so. We pay a fair wholesale price for most items
and even higher for items we have ready buyers for. To ensure my
success I have formed alliances with other dealers who don’t
necessarily deal in the same areas I do. If I am unsure of a market
value I simply check with a colleague, so I can offer you the most
money possible for your items.
