Richard Mori has been collecting Scouting memorabilia and specializing in rare books for many years. In this interview he reveals a strategy for success that he feels confident nobody can duplicate. What is really interesting about the way that Richard makes money in the hobby of collecting Boy Scout and Girl Scout memorabilia is that he does it the old school way. You won't hear the words Internet or eBay mentioned in this interiew. However, that's not to say that there aren't some nuggets that any collector can take away and relate to.
This episode represents the third in a series I am doing on ways that people have taken their passion for a hobby and figured out how to make it pay for itself by earning a little money. In Episode #67 we focused on how to sell on consignment and in #68 we talked about having an antique mall booth. I hope that you will enjoy this episode of the show just as much.
Richard Mori lives in New Hampshire but can be found traveling around the country to shows throughout the year. He has established a wide network of contacts both in the Scout collecting community and among book dealers.
