Last night I had a buyer from NEAT STUFF COLLECTIBLES come over to my house to try to buy my husband's and my collection of toys, records, comics and my dad's sports cards.
Even though it's really painful to sell all our things that we wanted to hand down to our children, we need money now- to survive- to pay rent, buy food, buy diapers, buy winter clothes- basic things we absolutely need- like formula for my son.
All of these things are very expensive. The buyer low balled us so ridiculously low we gagged! The guy knew we had an amazing collection- really amazing- and basically spit on us to try to make a huge profit for himself and the company. This is what they do for a living- go to people's houses that are looking to clean out their collection for whatever reasons- basically selling their childhood belongings- and buy it for close to nothing, telling them their collection is totally worthless! Meanwhile they sell it on ebay for tens of thousands of dollars! Basically they're CONS! This company makes me sick!
I'm going to be selling my enormous collection on ebay very soon.
If anyone knows anyone that collects records from the 60's-70's in amazing condition (the police, Beatles, the monkees, Woodstock, the rolling stones) or rare star wars toys still in their original boxes- vintage and not so vintage, rookie baseball cards, and 60's, 70's and 80's comics ( Amazing spiderman, X-men, Iron Man, Daredevil,etc)
Let me know.
Thanks everyone for listening.
