On Etsy since 2011

I'm a picker and a grinner

Curious to see some day to day life and experiences? I have a blog you can check out, http://etsybetsycash.blogspot.com/ .
I have been known to set my pacifier down on Pinterest http://www.pinterest.com/BoondockFinds/ and on twitter https://twitter.com/BoondockFinds

I purchase estates or sell on consignment. I also go pickin. Sometimes I do this full time and sometimes part time but it is in my blood and has been for years. The places I pick are very secret, so not sure how much of my processes I am willing to share. If you have seen storage wars or the Antique Road show you have a few clues.

I respect my clients privacy and am not comfortable sharing pictures of specific estates. While there is the thrill of the hunt, there is also the loss for the family. What you see on TV is not what we typically encounter. All their loved ones belongings are special to them, and often they place more value on sentimental pieces. I am the one who gets to tell them that the one year old vase from the flower shop will only bring a dollar, but that old cuckoo clock I just rescued from the trash bin is worth a hundred or two. That is the most challenging part of the work, but all those people become special to me.

When I am just out pickin, very odd and eclectic items seem to grab my attention, I have had many items that are sought by very specific collectors. I have sold books to descendants of the author, and some to authors themselves. Museums have purchased my items and I have replaced lost items from two peoples childhoods....some 40 years later. That is the connection I am after. The thrill of the hunt is still there sure, but I yearn more for the special sale that fills a gap in a person's life.

Locally I have a list of people I buy for, and if there is something special you are hunting shoot me a convo along with the minimum condition you want and the highest price you would go. Chances are I may have it or will come across it soon! You can keep up with all the finds I list on Etsy simply by clicking that little link with my picture to your left; and then hitting the button that says FOLLOW

I am told I need to specialize and find a niche, but I don't see how I can settle to one type of item. I would prefer the niche find me, so all you folks with niches, follow me ok?
