THE ULTIMATE LEGO HAUL

I was laying in bed one Friday night. Before I drifted off to sleep, I figured I would check Craigslist for the heck of it to see what was out there. I run across this insane looking post with a TON of Legos. From the thumbnail I could already tell there were Star Wars sets involved. The guy had put in the post that he would be having a yardsale to get rid of all of them at 5 a.m.

I set my alarm for 4:30.

4:30 comes early. I jump out of bed, throw my clothes on, and dial in my GPS on his location. I had just purchased the Yard Sale wagon the previous week. I get to the guy's house, and I'm greeted with the sight above. I could hardly contain my excitement. I ended up getting the ENTIRE lot for $600. I made an incredible profit on this lot and it is easily my favorite find ever.

Thanks Robert!

I met a guy named Robert through Craigslist. He was cleaning out his garage and ran across a ton of vintage toys from his childhood. I pulled up to his house and followed him to a detached garage behind his house. As I got closer I could see a lot of toys placed on his garage floor. I ended up buying everything he had.

Ebay Product Lighting Setup

Ran across a picture of my lightbooth and figured I’d post it up. After getting decent lighting, the quality of my photos went through the roof. As a result, I started selling items easier and for more profit than ever before. Investment in lighting is so worth it and I highly recommend this setup for most picture taking needs.

Gameboy, Golf, and a Shimano Reel

This was a great great day and I remember it fondly.

The big hauls of the day were the Samsung active 3D glasses that I picked for $1 which ended up selling for $34.99. I got both Nintendo DS systems and all the games for $18. I believe they ended up selling for about $80 each.

Craigslist Horror Movie Figures

Found ALL of this from one seller on Craigslist one late night. They had $450 on the lot, I offered $250. She accepted.

The next day I got off work and drove 2 hours to Galatin, Tennessee to pick them up. When I got there, they told me that someone had offered $500 if they would let them come pick them up right then. They held the lot for me and allowed me to take it all home for $250.

The couple were very nice and standup people, and I hope they are doing well. Apparently the figures belonged to her father and he had left them to her. She just wanted them gone. Needless to say, I came out ahead on this lot by a mile. I couldn’t part with the 18″ Eric Draven and the two Hellraiser figures, I still have them to this day.
