The Dark Side of Collecting... Reselling?
It happened to me back when Series 1 Minifigures came out in 2010. All the hype of getting these cheap $2 packets and no one sold them. I found a box at my local TRU finally and grabbed a bought about 8 and got a bunch of duplicates. The hunt was on...
Like any diligent shopper I went online to find sources for buying and that was when I found Bricklink. I had been collecting for about 1-2 years so I only new of EBay as an after market. On Bricklink I was able to complete my Series 1 collection from what appeared like a safe buying environment. Unfortunately I still had a bunch of duplicates from my previous hunt. I wasn't into eBay so I decided for the first time in my life to try unloading my extras on Bricklink. To my surprise I was able to sell them at low market at the time fairly quickly.
I suppose that is when I joined the Dark Side... Selling my collection to others. I have since used selling to manage my unwanted and tired old sets, plus a few speculation sets.
Would anyone like to add how and when they became a reseller?
