    I went to one today and the guy had 9 sets of deer antlers. I asked how much and he said $15 each. I said "how much for the whole box" and he said I could have them for $5.00 each if I took the whole box. I ended up giving him $20.00 for all nine racks. I put them on ebay and will know if I made a good deal or not in about 7 days.

    What is your name on ebay? I might be interested and would much rather bid on something from a brother.

    That's a good idea. You could make a good amount buying stuff cheap at sales, and selling the stuff on ebay.

    Sounds like your investment will pay for a few fishing trips. Good deal. Thanks for sharing

    Good ideal. I hope it works out for you. I have friends who does the same. They do good on Ebay. Check just about every week.

    Does any of those antlers come with meat attached. If so, I'll take one. LOL.:big_smile:

    My father is obsessed with older cars and buys junk cars that people will sell for hundreds to a couple thousand. take parts of the car and clean them up and sell them on ebay, makes a good profit off most of the cars.

    says he used to hate the idea of destroying any old car but now he feels like its better sellin them to someone who might restore it instead of someone who would let it rot :roll_eyes:
