In school no one ever taught us that we could make a living selling junk on the internet. Since Scavenging is now our prime source of income, we're always wondering how we'll look back on this life as we grow older. Scavenging is our career. It has become our identity. It's nothing we were trained for, but a way of life we've discovered for ourselves and love. One reason why we started this podcast was to find others like us we could talk to about treasure hunting.
For this week's throw back episode, listen to us share our Silent Method of dealing with grumpy buyers that we published a year ago. Still works for us every time .
Check out this video of Griff explaining how he chooses to put an item up for auction or fixed price. We break the rules he lays down, but always interesting to see how other sellers make their choices.
This week we're doing the podcast from the road while we work in Los Angeles and then rent a beach cottage in San Diego for a long weekend. The next time you travel, try staying in an Airbnb rental instead of a hotel. Signing up here will give us both $25 credit. We swear you'll never go back to renting anonymous hotel rooms again.
