In this episode of Scouting Hot Finds I'm going to tackle two big questions that a lot of people have when dealing with Boy Scout memorabilia. The first is how to get started whether through an estate sale, craigs list, or finding a trading assistant willing to help you. The second part of the show is a little bit more sophisticated and discusses the various online alternatives you have. We will discuss eBay of course but also what are the alternatvies to this monolithic auction site with increasingly stinging fees and policies. I'm goign to REALLY crunch the numbers on this show and tell you what the fees translate out to. You can hear just what a profit margin you can look to make on eBay. I've had my own off-eBay site for more than five years and I'll share my experiences and ideas. I will take live phone calls so get your questions ready and let's talk shop!
