  2. I think I may enjoy the con, I bought a huuuuuuge collection and need to move the books and the stock is fantastic. I just saw a book I have for sale at $30 listed in another booth at $60, so maybe I am listing too cheap! Just watched Civil War, some good stuff in there! Spider-man, Ant Man and Black Panther were all so well done.
  3. see, I THINK that it is fun but really it is a lot of stress. Just stress associated with comics, which I love so it is preferable to regular day stuff stress. I have had buyers, one today and a few last week, thank me for selling so cheaply but that doesn't move the books. I think the things on sale right now are great books but here they sit. Well, I signed up to do a local con in August so I need to get ready anyway and yesterday and today filled a longbox of solid sale stuff at least.
  4. Sunday is for simple! Tonight is about difficulty and math! Doesn't matter, nothing will sell anyway. At least I got 50 books or more priced and placed away for future sales. I also pulled a few X-Men for grading!
  5. Hoarders have an OCD related behavior that, at its core, is based on a belief that they need the items, essentially to survive. Hoarding is due to belief that you will need the things being hoarded despite logic suggesting otherwise and that belief is so strong as to render the person incapable of discarding the items else they will not be able to function adequately when the time comes for those items to be utilized.
  6. I just put a special offer in my booth, here it is. NEW SPECIAL OFFER! FROM NOW TO 12 MIDNIGHT EST! NEW PURCHASES ONLY! BUY ANY MARVEL GRAPHIC NOVELS, PRESTIGE FORMAT BOOKS, OR MAGAZINES TOTALING $25 OR MORE AND TAKE 33% OFF! THAT'S RIGHT, SPEND $25 BEFORE DISCOUNT AND TAKE ONE THIRD OFF! NO SLABS OR REGULAR COMICS INCLUDED IN THIS OFFER.
  7. I think that people have given a reasonable explanation for the gorgeous book comment...he could have given it a quick perusal, possibly through the bag, and just not noticed the defects. As you did with your refund comment, people sometimes go a little far in an effort to be nice. Both of you made statements that you later retracted so I don't think that it is any less plausible than you accepting the return and then changing your mind. In fact it seems more plausible as looking through the bag is a mistake of logic/action and your change of heart is a change based on feeling/anger. There is no way for the boards to decide who, if anyone, is actively misrepresenting things. You might want to let this one go.
  8. okay, I will play that game and offer a limited discount now. Not sure what it will be until I type it out but here goes.
  9. well, another sale so that is good. Grateful for any sales in fact. But I HAD said no paypal but changed that in the hopes it would increase business. But this was all a good way to get more books ready for my first ever convention selling experience (well, I sold once at comic art con but that is different) coming in late August. Now I have a bunch of books photo'ed and priced for ebay and that show if they don;t sell here.
  10. yeah, Maxam was my first thought.
  11. opps, yeah, extra pic in the garage sale thread
  12. well, I found something at an estate sale but I did not buy it. This was 3rd/last day and of course the 6 tubs of comics were down to loose Archie digests. On etub had a BA11 on top in the photo, so between that and this I figured it was worth a short drive. If you cannot read the blue tape price tag it reads $750. This was in a very affluent neighborhood and the estate salesman said they had a standing offer of $200. I drove back home empty handed but it was worth a shot.
