My goal is to have at least one takeaway each show, and then improve on that for the next one. I think for me I'm already developing a reputation for cheap prices, so hopefully if I continue I'll have that recurring business. It's like what my friend said that made that large buy off me, I like (big dealer) a lot, but his prices are way too damn high I can't buy anything from him!TheeBaldMoose wrote:sounds like you're starting to find a bit of a groove!

I've for sure know guys that have sold everything at a show.GGSAE wrote:You've probably seen this, but I've heard of dealers buying-out others completely. I know there's one guy down the hall from me that's selling his collection and told me he will need to make a decision shortly, either dump everything at $1 or buy more inventory. I guess that's the catch, you need to always be buying. It will be awhile before I need to make that decision, for now I'm just looking to move some stuff and try to learn something new each month.Elveen wrote:That is often the BIGGEST business.GGSAE wrote:Just did show #3, quite the success....Total dollar amount sold was high, 24+ times cost a lot of this was due to selling a bunch of keys/higher ticket books. I also made a group sales to a friend of mine after I told him I can accept credit
I meant to take pics but was rushed at the beginning, because I was stationed in the hall early-birds were already there and there were additional dealers that had populated the space even more. I managed to snag a great hard-plastic folding utility table for $10 and dumped my cheap long boxes across from me on the wall. I plan on using my main table to bring more boxes of just individually-priced books as I still need more inventory at the show and have a lot left to bring. Last point, I snagged some cheap preacher books from the dealer beside me....I'm starting to see the business that takes place between other dealers....
and yes, you always need to be buying.
