A collectible is any old or unique item in which someone wishes to add to his or her collection. A collection is any group of 3 or more items. An antique is any collectible item at least 100 years old, (except autos are antique at 50 years). Because of this there are more collectible buyers then there are antique buyers. Although many collectible buyers are also antique buyers. Also known as collectors, dealers, and pickers. Anytime someone purchases something for his or her collection, they become a collectible buyer. There are three basic types of collectible buyers. Which collectible buyer are you?
Some collectible buyers (and antique buyers) have a niche market or shop in which they buy to resell. These collectible buyers often buy common pieces, are looking for a bargain and are known to buy entire collections. They often have pieces for sale, or know someone who does. This collector is more of the dealer or picker type.
Some collectible buyers want one of each piece that was ever made, or only the very rarest pieces, and are always adding to their collection. Because of it’s size or uniqueness, their collection is often exhibited in museums, and antique shows. These collectible buyers know which pieces of their collectibles are rare. They know everything there is to know about almost every piece in their collection. They often host shows, and write books, or articles about their collectible. They’re the expert in their collectible field. They’re very specific as to which piece will be added to their collection. They seldom buy commons or damaged pieces, and will pay fair prices for rare pieces. Majority of the collectible buyers on Mister Find IT’s list, is this type of collectible buyer.
The third collectible buyer is more of the novice collector. They’re not too picky, if they see or are offered pieces that match their collectible they’ll buy it if the price is right, and sometimes no matter what the price is. Sometimes this collectible buyer does not even have a collection, they want the piece because of its uniqueness or because it reminds them of something or someone from the past. This collectible buyer often buys for themselves, or as gifts for friends and family and not to resell. This collectible buyer is more likely to buy a single piece, rather then a collection. Many times this collectible buyer will pay more for a hard to find collectible, only because of its sentimental value.
No matter which collectible buyer you are, Mister Find IT can help you find your collectible, and add to your collection. Mister Find IT does not buy your collectible, but rather allows the collectible buyers to post “WANTED TO BUY ADS”, telling you the viewer which collectibles they want. Mister Find IT tweaks the ad in an unique way, so that the seller, can find a buyer, and the collectible buyer finds his or her collectible. Then the buyer and seller deal directly with each other. Rather then wasting time and money to rent store space, or listing fees with an online auction, come to Mister Find IT, find an antique or collectible buyer and sell it.
