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.

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.

I thought I had a $20,000 Princess Diana TY Beanie Baby

Turned out to be manufactured in the wrong place, with the wrong pellets, just wrong. Ended up being worth about $8. Good thing I only paid $1 for it.

Huge Action Figure Haul

One of my favorite finds ever, and I am SO INCREDIBLY proud that I bought professional lighting BEFORE I took the pictures of this set. These pictures helped the final selling price by at least +30%. I bought all of these figurines from one guy on Craigslist for $50. FIFTY DOLLARS. He said his daughter and wife hated them so he had to get rid of them. I ended up making more than 10 times my money in profit from this haul. Still to this day one of my favorite finds ever.

I still think the Spooky Town haul was my favorite.

The lot had Clive Barker’s Tortured Souls, Alice in Wonderland, Where the Wild Things Are, Akira, and Spawn. I also found this sweet Halo Reach elite statue on Craigslist that I nearly doubled my money on.

Dat Jedi Build-a-Bear Tho

Some mediocre finds on this day. The pirate ship ended up being parted out. Paid $5, sold the trap door, figures, and accessories for more than $20. I also had someone reach out to me wanting only to buy the Obi-wan Jedi robes of the blue Build-a-Bear.

Halloween Costume Goldmine

The find of the day was the pictured HK MP5 airsoft kit. I paid $2 for the gun and all the accessories. Sold for roughly $70. The outdoor timers were also bought for $2 and sold for $60. Both finds in the same yardsale.

The costumes were the goldmine this day. I bought around 30 costumes at $6 each from Bob’s Bargains. I completely bought out their Star Wars section, and did quite well selling them for $30-40 each.
