I dont know wtf is going on....literally had zero run-ins or problems with resellers all summer, but now all of a sudden near the end of yard sale season, they are all coming out of the woodwork. I remember yard sales going strong till mid October last year, but already now there are barely any sales. There was ONE sale this weekend that just mentioned "video games". Usually the resellers never show up to these because they're too dumb to even look for them, they usually only hit the ones that advertise "nintendo" or something specific. Well I get to this one about 20 mins early and right after I get there some old fat guy in a broke down pickup truck full of garbage pulls up....then 5 mins later another even older guy in an even crappier truck pulls up. No one comes out of the house and eventually they both leave. I text the seller and of course they "overslept" (seriously f**k these people....you can't get by 9am?! I'm so sick of dealing with that every weekend) and you guessed it....they already sold all the games yesterday! And the real kicker is I actually emailed them 2 days prior, about an hour after it was listed, and asked if I could come see the games (I hate to do that because I hate when others do it but you pretty much have to now just to compete), so someone must have emailed them like 2 seconds after they posted the ad and bought everything. Drove around all day and only found 5 total sales and heard "oh yeah I have an old Nintendo....but I'm keeping that" at every sale. Ugh, I think I'm done for the rest of the year!
