Don’t Be Burned by These Picker Fails!

Picker Fails?

Don't be burned by these picker fails
Picker Fails are like being one brick short

Oh boy, DO I have ’em!  And I STILL have ’em because cheapskate picker who lives in a depression thinking world, does not throw anything away! Budding wannabe sellers take note…don’t be burned by these picker fails!

We pickers buy for many reasons, and get caught up in the emotion just like you do! I buy :

…if I think it’ll sell for me obviously…either on Ebay or Etsy.

…anything to do with the Beatles (OK, I still think I’m 13 in the 60’s)

…to enjoy for a bit, then out it goes. I keep very little because at my age, I need to get RID of stuff! (but you wouldn’t think that if you saw my work space)

…if I can use it to decorate or repurpose something else I have.

…if my sweet hubby has a hunch. (did I mention he has a thing for lamps?)

…if I’m desperate! So I can’t find a darn thing, but I want to buy SOMETHING! (gosh, it must be a sickness)

…if I have a hunch. I see something, & go with the gut, which leads me to my next point. Sometimes it’s a good hunch, and sometimes it’s verrry BAD. We won’t talk about the times I bought and discovered there were only about 10 pages of the identical item on Ebay or Etsy, which is the reason for the section below:

  1. I have so many fails, I have chosen to block them out of my mind. Only problem with that is that when I see another one, I can’t remember if it’s a fail or a win and will buy it again. LOL

    Books used to be great if you did your homework and knew what to look for. Then everybody started doing it and now it’s extremely hard to find a winner.

    1. Thanks Tania! Yes, I took the plunge! Thanks for commenting! I have been enjoying your blog this morning. I don’t think I’ve seen all the ones of your home improvements. You have inspired me to do some stuff around here.
