You are on a collector site and you're asking for prospective sellers to be reasonable in their pricing to you, so that you are able to make a profit on the flip????????
I guess everyone wants someone to sell to them reasonably enough, but to find someone that would do the leg work for you, to make your enterprise profitable, is pretty far fetched, even in todays dreamer world!!!!
The collectors on these pages aren't really interested in what an item costs, more that the item they purchase is worth the money they have to pay. They all sell a few items to help fund the collecting addiction, but it certainly isn't at a level where some newby picker can make his wages off the daily finds of these collectors!
There are a certain amount of pickers that frequent these pages too, but unless they are very savvy, they generally pay too much for their inventory and rarely get anything sold because their prices are so darn high!
You would do well to concentrate your time and effort on ebay and Craigs list, to pick thru the offerings of those who just want to dump some excess property for quick cash!
I know of no successful pickers out there that have people calling them up with all of the inventory they might need? Just doesn't happen! You want to be successful at this---get out and do the leg work! Spend 12 to 15 hours a day on the computer---spend money on newspaper ads, drive hundreds of miles to auction sales--make a good name for your self--never cheat anyone--get to know a whole lot of people and maybe someday, someone will give you a call! MAYBE??

Once again Kevin Has acted as a true ambassador to the hobby. Do yourself a favor and read it over as many times as it takes to sink it in. He speaks the truth and offers great advice.
Good luck.

People are harsh on oldgas. You think they would try to help a younger guy that appreciates antique signs. Not try to put him down lol

there seems to be a trend on this site and others, HAMB and AACA come to mind that a group of seasoned collectors, aka "old guys" are easy picking. Just hit up somebody who's spent years in a hobby, chances are they'll be out of touch on some stuff and are ready to be taken. American Pickers has made it popular and look easy. The people like Sean here just don't understand how anyone can possibly be offended by them wanting to take advantage of someone's ignorance or lack of knowledge.
