SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] When you're shopping yard sales I think the most exciting thing is that you do not know what you're going to find. Ooh, these are cute. One man's trash is another man's treasure. It's always about hunting for treasure. We do stop off when we see a field with lots of dealers. That's when you usually are able to get a lot of different kinds of merchandise and meet a lot of great people that are selling their wares. Alright, I'll take them. Want me to wrap them for you [INAUDIBLE]. You'll wrap them for us? Sure. And what's your name? Glenda. GLenda, I'm Eddie. Nice to meet you. Thank you so much. We are on a mission and we know what we're looking for. We're looking for furniture. we're looking for lamps. We're looking for larger, decorative items. Just found these pair for $5. I think these will be great for bedside table lamps. I like to look for older neighborhoods and really rich neighborhoods. You know that there's gonna be some good things. Somewhere along the way. I love this little wicker desk. It's a really good deal. It would be really pretty. If you're buying wedgewood. If you're buying depressed stained glass, you always want to just like do some research before. There's a lot of things that's been reproduced and you don't want to get stuck paying a lot of money for something that you think is real and find out that it's fake. If the cups don't have the design on the bottom It will not be the real thing so you have to watch that. Oh, that's a, that's a good tip. What's the best you can do on this? You want to work with the dealer or the seller. You don't want to go in, and you don't want to, you know, offend them. If something is like 200 bucks and you go in and you're like oh I'll give you $25, usually they'll tell you to get outta here. So, you're saying $20? Yes. Alright. What about 15? What about 10? Well, 15's in the middle, so I'll meet ya in the middle. Alright [LAUGH]. That's a good deal. The whole point is for them to make money and you to get what you want. Everybody walks away, it's a win, win situation. Thank you so much, it was so nice meeting you, and we'll take good care of these. Bye, have a good day. That was a good boost. That was a really good boost.
