Garage Sale Guide $0.99 Introductory Price
« on: May 25, 2009, 03:37:15 pm »
On the Amazon Board I discussed an idea everyone seemed to like, so I tried it. It seems to me that the Kindle is perfect to carry a reference library to Garage/yard sales and the like. Small and yet you can cram a lot of information in it. To test the idea I've created a guide to collectible (Mostly vintage) magazines. Hope I've got this right Leslie doesn't go in Bargain Books, goes in it's own thread?

In any case, introducing the first Garage Sale Guide. Expanded a bit on the information in my own price guide (published by Antique Traders) to do a guide to buying mostly vintage magazines. I'm pricing it at $ 0.99 because I really want some feedback on it. I think Kindle is ideal for this purpose you can carry a whole library of information to garage sales, flea markets, yard sales and antique malls. It's here: Garage Sale Guide #1 MAGAZINES if you're interested. Planning future volumes on books and some areas of Japanese goods: occupied Japan, Anime, Doujinshi, Manga where I have access to good information if this works out well.

    I think this is a fabbo idea!! I always wonder what is worth buying when I am out and about.  These would be great easy (Searchable which is most important!!) reference!!  I hope you publish more, magazine is not my particular forte, but I would love to see other ones on antiques etc...

    Thanks!!

    I should get this and then go scour my dad's basement and attic and see if any of his piles are worth anything!  I think he has every National Geographic back to something like 1956.

    Sounds good to me as well. I buy garage sale items and sell them on Ebay. I am a Disney Freak and there are always vintage Disney thing (souvies etc.) that people get for their children and when they leave home and leave it behind the "Empty-Nesters" can't wait for the first clear Saturday to unload it to some Dumb-unsuspecting Disney Freak who thinks they have "hit the jackpot" ;D! I would love to carry around my Kindle to CHEAT! ::)
