Do it yourself American Pickers guide.

Looking for a job? Need money like a Mother-&^$(“er? Don’t know where to turn? Have I got a job for you!

Leave it to your Uncle Scotty to show you the way. By the time you are done reading this article you should have all

the information you need to make a very modest salary with very little problem. You can start this afternoon.

Have you ever watched the show the American Pickers? I am about to show you how to become a working amateur picker. Anyone can make money with just the walking around money in their pocket. With this information, you could start your own picking business or just make some quick cash buying used goods and selling them for profit.

It is truly limitless what can be sold on the internet. I currently have the number of a lady in Wyoming that sells tumble weeds to Hollywood for movie sets, and the number of a dude, that owns 3 houses on his block from selling dirty panties, to sick perverts from his website. These are the extremes of something so simple. How to make money from almost anything.

*Not to get off topic, but here is a link to a girl patties vending machine in Japan. I don’t even know how I found this. What is more shocking, is that something like this exist in this world.

The second hand business is all about the mantra, “buy low sell high.” You always buy for the right price, which is less than what someone else is willing to pay. Over paying for any item loses money so you don’t want to do that. The kind of seller you want to buy from is desperate – they need the money and will take a hit for a quick sale. The other type of seller is someone professional in the second hand market and they will over charge you because they’re in it for profit.

Bread and butter items, these are the items you will lean towards when making buys. A bread and butter item is something you are familiar with. You understand the demand for this item and you know what is being paid for these items. Start by finding desperate sellers of your bread and butter items and resell them for profit.

Some of my go to items – little girls pants, steel cars, used doc martens, used Nikes, Golf equipment, Star Wars, Disney, R/C airplanes, jeans, and name brand clothes, large size woman’s clothes! These are things that I know the value of and can always find someone selling under market.

Want to know how to get nice name brand designer closes for nearly free? As a picker, you’ll naturally be going to garage sales. Once in a while you will pull up to a garage sale, and they will be selling all these nice name brand clothes all of them not my size, but she is willing to almost give them away. no-problem-eo, buy them all! That’s right! One time I went to a garage-sale and got about 70 pieces of name brand clothes for 25 bucks, I just stuffed them in the car and took them to Plato Coset, they turned around and gave me 400 bucks credit in the store, that’s right, all for 25 bucks! You can’t tell me that didn’t just get the wheels turning!!!! OMG

Quick hint- buy a PDA and look up items on ebay while you are right on the spot for a pricing guide you can use for buying items.

I happen to have a cool story – my brother, the one that originally got me started on ebay almost 10 years ago now. he would go to the junk yard and fetch parts off of cars that would bring big dollars. I also know people are making great money on ebay selling Mexican jumping beans.

Places to find inventory – Garage Sales, Flee Markets, Craigslist, Storage Auctions. All of these places will bring you mountains of quality second hand merchandise that you can turn and sell.

Where to sell – You should consider having your own garage sale. You can make a very nice profit from a well planned garage sale besides you’re going to need to clear out space to hold your new inventory. One weekend, I took a truck load of merchandise to the swap meet and my wife held a garage sale at our house. We had a $4,000 cash weekend. I turned that cash into the purchase of an entire household at storage unit auction and made over $20,000 on eBay. I’m not kidding when I say you can make serious cash with this gig.

How much money do I need? Well this is really a trick question, because some of my most profitable finds have been with just the pocket change in my pocket. I can’t even count how many times I have turned 5 bucks into a hundred. You can get started for free by driving by garage sales on Sunday afternoon and picking up what they leave by the curb. I’ve picked up truck loads of free merchandise that people simply do not want. This is a disposable society we live in after all. Haven’t you seen furniture, tv’s, computers, and all kinds of stuff left to the curb at trash time. I’m not telling you to dumpster dive – I’m just saying that there’s money to be made in this market with very little start up. Go find some stuff to sell and get your share.
