Someone I met once, another dealer said, “You need to kiss an awful lot of toads to be able to find a prince”. He used this as slogan when picking. You have to visit many many sales in order to find one or two good items. This also goes for new products, leads, and stories. Just being active in this, you will find out many things by people bragging, or conversing. If you advertise, even with a simple business card, you will get leads. It could be as simple as “I Buy XXX” and your name and cell phone number. Tell friends what you collect or buy. One day your prince or princess will come!
