Toy Hunting Tips - Part 4 - John's Guide To Collecting

Tip 1: Always check the price of an item you're interested in.

If you find it in a big store that has a scanner, always scan the items when you visit the store.
You won't believe the amount of items that have been on sale or discounted, that weren't marked as such.

Also If Your store has a clearance aisle, check it out. Or ask an employee where it is. Sometimes the toy you think is sold out has actually been moved some where else.

You can also check the stores online and physical flyers for sales each Sunday!

Location - Part 3 Of John's Guide To Collecting

My Internet buddy Likeit's1985 lives in the state of Washington, and he has a car. I on the other hand live in the greatest city in the world and I use public transportation.

My point is that it doesn't matter where in the world you live, you can always find toys.

But some places don't have Toys R Us, like Santo Domingo for instance.

Passion - Part 2 Of John's Guide To Collecting

What makes life "GO" ( Like those Star Trek aliens) is passion. You can't collect for collecting sake or for profit.

People learned a long time ago that buying up that "Death Of Superman" comic was a bad investment. That's why the comic book market imploded. Like a dwarf star.

Money - Part 1 of John's Guide To Collecting

When It comes to buying toys, I will have to admit, I fly by the seat of my pants. I'm not married, I have my 401k but I don't have thousands in my bank account. To tell the truth the most I've had in my account was $3,000.

Money is the first issue in my guide, because without it you got nothing.
