ok almost free i want to share how i make extra money for our trips as we have been blessed with going to
5 or 6 bus rallys and making great friends as you known we live in costa rica so we have a lot more cost to
go to a rally. round trip air fare/ hotels/ rent a car/ dog papers/ passports / cleanning & stocking motorhome
ect. but it all worth it . ok this is very simple to do and can be done anywere what we do is buy & wholesale
used furn. we have a deal with a used furn store he will buy everything i get . hears the deal if you have seen the tv show storge wars . you see dealers bidding to buy those units as they need stuff to sell . most sales are during the week .why resell shops busyest time is weekends . this allso makes it hard for them to hit the garage sales . we have a price line that he will pay . we work on 100-150 profit it works like this if i buy something for $100 he will pay me $200 or more so i just made 100 profit now before you say no i make
on avarge $1000 month for a few weekends work . if i let him pay me with a post dated check we pays more
as he gets to sell it and make his profit before the post dated check .
this can be done in any town in the usa there are allways resell shops all you need to do is talk to them
and offer to suply to them and work out price guidelines .  next post other stuff part 2

part 2 this can work for all of you just think the guys at the flea market need stuff to sell . it can be your hobby. fishing gear .hunting gear. sports stuff. they need you . they need stuff to sell. they will be happy
to pay you fair prices. everybody wins. you dont sell to the publix your selling to the dealers. ok check this out
i buy a nice sofa for $200 he pay me $400 he sells it for $600 win win for everyone one other tip i take it home a set it up in my garage my guy likes to buy in bulk he likes unloading a truck full as people see him unloading they go see what he got now as i said a average of $1000 month some months i dont sell anything others can
be $ 3000 or more i spend a few hours a couple times a week hope this helps out a few bus nuts just trying

With all respect, this has bupkes to do with buses, or busing.  There has to be a forum on how to rip off the unfortunate that this can be on.  Think about who lost their possessions and why, before you claim it's win-win-win.  It's LOSE BIG, then win-win-win.

John I think Brian misunderstood that you were buying from garage sales.

I think he thought you were doing the storage auction thing.

However Brian, It's not the person who buys the "storage locker" that is at fault. Those lockers go unpaid for quite some time before "MOST" put them up for sale.
They'd rather the "owner" pay the storage than the have to have an auction.

The only one who wins at those auctions every time is the auctioneer who gets his commission as soon as the sale is over before the storage unit! And many times the buyers lose $ because the stuff ain't worth what they thought.

I know several who own the storage units and some that buy stuff and they all agree they lose as much as they gain.

I agree with Brian: this is very much OT.

Does anyone want to know how I fund my bus hobby? I didn't think so...

 bk thanks i only said that as a point that dealers need to buy stuff and pay fair prices that all
again my point was to offer help to other busnuts to make extra cash for fuel & bus parts
again its a simple as talking to dealers in shops or flea markets   make it fun could be baseball cards comic books
anything thats easy and fun for you all my profit is for bus parts / rallys ect
again i have made great friends from the bcm and got lots of help  just trying to give back
good luck to all that want to try this thanks john
ps. i buy furn.as its harder to sell at garage sales. as you need to haul away my dealer offers dellivery

bk i known what you say is true and some people keep stuff in storage for sentamenal resons i known
lady who has spent $ 4000 a year for the last 13 years for stuff thats not worth $2000 and onother
that has been paying for 20 yrs i have sean both of these units and its junk  anyway have fun

Did Gilligan ever get off the island, does anyone know? 

I have lost the key to my storage locker and I was wondering if there was a bus nut in the neighborhood that knows how to counterfeit, uh ... copy a key?

Do you need a permit from the city in order to sell a bus at a garage sale.

Just thinkin' outside the box.
