IOLA, Wis. – From killer yard sale finds to abandoned storage unit bounty, hidden treasures abound for those skilled in the art of picking. Now you can turn your curiosity and passion for the undiscovered and undervalued into profits with Picker’s Bible, 2nd edition the insider’s guide to picking like the pros.
This hands-on, how-to guide by professional picker Joe Willard presents easy-to-follow professional advice including where to find the good stuff, how to negotiate the best price, indicators for when to buy and when to walk away, where to look for hidden treasures, tips and tricks of picking insiders, how to flip your finds for the most money, and the basics of today’s most popular trend – industrial picking.
“Sophisticated shoppers that spend large amounts at antiques stores and collectibles malls don’t realize that there was a picker somewhere that found their items,” writes Willard in the introduction to the book. “It is the pickers who find and rescue much of what would have been lost forever in the dump. It’s the pickers who help drive the interest and market for emerging collectibles.”
Whether you brake for yard sales, flea markets, thrift shops, estate sales, or even the neighbor’s discarded junk, Picker’s Bible will help you find what everyone else is missing.
