Overview

Garage sales can be gold mines for those who know what they're looking for, and this book is your one-stop guide to turning someone else's trash into your treasure. Written by a pair of expert collectors with over sixty years of garage sale foraging experience between them, The Garage Sale Millionaire shows you exactly how to find and sell diamonds in the rough by mining thrift stores, storage unit auctions, online auctions and, of course, garage sales for the hidden gems that everyone else has overlooked.

Revealing the most highly guarded secrets of consistently successful and profitable treasure hunters, this informative and accessible book covers everything you need to understand to get started—and get rich—seeking coveted collectibles and reselling them for top dollar. Including essential, often surprising tips on what to buy and what to avoid, The Garage Sale Millionaire shows you how to auction your findings online or hold a great garage sale of your own.

Authors Aaron LaPedis and Jeffrey Kern show you how to haggle with sellers, sell on eBay, identify fakes, replicas and much, much more, so you can get to work making money right away. A handy glossary explains the terms that would-be sale scavengers are likely to encounter, and helpful "Million Dollar Tips" throughout highlight the most important lessons the authors have learned during their decades in the treasure-finding trenches.

From fine art and antiques to coins and comics, there's buried treasure everywhere . . . hidden in plain view! The trick is knowing what you're looking for. This book is here to help, taking the guesswork out of finding and selling collectibles to help you become the next garage sale millionaire.
