It has been a while since I have done much posting here on Pinside so I figured I would bump this post again tonight just in case anyone might be interested in a great little sideline business. It has been about 60 days now since I started listing parts again and as in the past when I list I sell like crazy. I still can't keep up with getting back to everyone who emails me about parts but I am making some progress on the mess in the basement.
Anyway - if anyone fairly local has any interest in the business I am still looking to sell it if I can find a buyer. I have had two guys come take a look so far and both of them were "blown away" at the volume of stuff that is included for $25k. One guy is seriously interested but can't do anything for over 3 years until he retires. The other guy decided he was just too old to take something like this on and I can't say I blame him (he was in his mid 70's).
I do have one other guy that is "suppose" to come look at the stuff "one of these days" but he keeps falling off the face of the earth so I don't have much hope that he is my guy. If a buyer just did what I have been doing working part time at it and his sales were similar to mine it would take less than 9 months for them to have 100% of their investment back. (And yes I do have the "paper trail" to prove that). My issue is I am less than a month away from having to shut down again until Fall. So here we go again - feeling bad about not taking care of my customers while I travel & help family. But family comes first and always will!
