#1.. STOP WATCHING American Pickers, it's NOT REAL.
#2.. Be HONEST, WE have heard most Lies.
#3.. Never try to sell an item NOT IN YOUR POSSESSION.
#4.. Ask REALISTIC Prices [very few items will be worth 2X what you paid].
#5.. Don't Expect Members to support you.
#6.. Size Does Matter, Larger is Not always Better/Worth more [doesn't matter what she says].
#7.. Condition is King, Rarity Might be a Princess or a FROG.
#8.. HONOR [w/o it your Toast], Offer 100% Refund.
#9.. Package items for Protection [to shipping employees it's just a job].
#10.. Insurance is to ensure you did a Great Job in Packaging/Protection.
#11.. DON'T Believe everything a Seller Says, he Wants to Sell it!

#21... If you try to sell a repop as original you will be forever labeled as a thief.

#22... don't ever label or describe something as one of a kind or last one in existence. You are wrong...always wrong

Don't be pushy, rude, arrogant, or a know-it-all.
Always come back if only to say hi. People are more important than stuff.
Take a truck, tools and cash.
If you are dealing with a man...carry a pretty girl with you that can carry on a conversation and doesn't mind getting dirty.
USE COMMON SENSE. If you don't have any...stay at home.
A really good "picker" is a rarity. I am taking about someone that can relate to most people and can find something in an area that you have been over 10 times. I have only seen a couple in 30 years.
