Went to Lamar Todd's Auction

    So guys the other day I went to this great auction here in Memphis. Its run by an awesome dude named Lamar Todd. He has been in the business of antiques for decades. I got to talking to him the other night about how this business is and he told one of the most important things you will ever learn. There are NO friends at an auction. I was laughing when he told me that but its true. He said you wouldn't believe how many people's friendships get hurt over a bid on a $10 item. I was amazed to say the least. The whole time he was throwing out witty remarks like "We encourage volume buying you know?" and squirting water guns at un-ruley buyers all in good fun. I had the chance to bid on a few items but I only won 1 item. It was a boys scout uniform with all the patches and buttons and complete. I paid $10 for it and I'm hoping to get around $30 for it on Ebay. Lamar also taught me another thing. He said don't expect to make a million of one thing. but to make a million off a lot of things. Which basically means don't get greedy. As long as you come out on top your doing great. ^_^ It was pretty fun but when it was over I had to wait in line to pay like 6 people in front of me. I was like man this is going to take forever. But surprisingly the line went quick, then I had the chance to met Mrs. Helen Todd, Lamar's wife. She was so nice and pleasant about me being there and bidding and having a good time. She had me all paid up in no time at all. Usually at other auctions around town they take forever to add you up, but not here. ^_^ Oh and this was the first auction I have been to that had a Cafe in the back serving hot food and cold drinks. All around I give Todd s Auction in Memphis a A++ It was awesome and I will defiantly be coming back seeing as how they have an auction every Monday Thursday and Saturday night.  ^_^

HP dv6000 SOLD!

So guys I just sold my old hp laptop. I paid over $500 when i bought it new in 2007 but I got the use out of it. I sold it for around $100 on eBay. This is just another thing you can sell to make some extra cash to help out or buy a new laptop witht he money from the old one. I would suggest that you wipe the harddrive first and Install it back to factory settings .

Sony PSP 1000 Black - 2 games usb/charger 2gig memory stick SOLD!!!!!!

I just sold a PSP today on the Facebook groups I was telling you guys about. I sold it pretty cheap to a women with 4 kids because truth be told I bought it cheap. I originally bought it for $40 and played it a little bit but I got bored with it. So I sold it to her for $30 not a bad deal on her part. Yeah I lost some money but it was a good for her and good for me so I didnt mind :) This is part of the junk-man's business. You always have to pay it forward to other people and help out everyone ^_^

Apple iPhone 4 SOLD!

OK guys, I bought an Iphone 4 from a girl on Facebook,she wanted $120 for it. So I bought it. I just sold it on eBay for $250 to a guy in Miami. It had what was called a bad ESN which basically means that the last person that had the phone didn't pay their bill and Verizon burnt the phone so nobody else can use it. But now-a-days people know ways around that. there is a process called flashing where you can take a Verizon phone and flash to any other CDMA phone service. All in all I could have sold it for upwards of $350 if the ESN was still good. on it but it wasn't.I checked my on Google and found a site where you can enter the ESN and check and see if its any good so if you plan on buying one, use that site. Everyone keep a look out for great deals like this ^_^

Ways to make Money using Facebook Groups

   Lately I have been seeing Groups coming up in local Metro areas Called Second hand or Resale. Basically its like a craigslist for Facebook. It is a lot safer than Craigslist and you can see the persons info so you know they are legit. Usually these groups work better in a small tight knit community. Were people know at least a few other people in common. There are plenty of good deals on there because these smaller communitys usually sell stuff cheap to each other because they know the merchandise is going to help the community. I recently purchased a Iphone 4 and I am currently using it as I type. ^_^ I paid around $125 for it. It was a great deal, they are going for around $300 on eBay and around $350 on craigslist. So if you do not have one of these groups in your local area MAKE ONE. They are a great idea and I love it  ^_^
