    Recently I started building up inventory to start an ebay store. Last week I got 80 skylanders from thrift stores. This last weekend I was interested in a bunch of skylanders at a garage sale. I knew there was at least a thousand bucks of stuff there and I asked how much for all of it. The mom told me that they were her sons and that I can negotiate with him for the price.

    He came outside and was about 10 years old. I offered 25 bucks and he got wide eyed like he was rich and quickly accepted it.

    Am I a dick for scoring well over $1000 of shit for 25 bucks from a 10 year old?

    Here is my score (over 150 items, just 3 of the pieces in front are worth $40-$50 each):

    Now I have a total of 230ish skylanders to individually list on ebay :(

  5. lol, mom should have known better than to have her 10 year old son barter away his hobby.

    What you did isn't neccessarily dickish, probably should have given him a better offer than $25 though.

    So I always hear about how much stuff is worth. Can you honestly cash in on those right now if you put em on eBay? Just curious

    Whats funny is I saw the same kid with some friends a couple hours later and they all had sodas and a ton of candy. Guess that $25 wasn't invested wisely.

    And this reminds me of the time my friend got a ridiculously cheap deal on a paintball gun at a garage sale. Supposedly a little kid sold his big brothers paintball gun for dirt cheap. I know that kid got the shit beat out of him once his brother found out

    yep, I just check the SOLD listings for each item and they range from $5-$50. Most are in the $5-$15 range.

    On the one hand there's the principles of freedom of contract.

    On the other hand he's a minor and clearly an unsophisticated party. I'd call this agreement unconscionable.

    In short, you're a total dick.
