Then Steve Says:

Hi Bob, I know just the thing you are looking for.

I did this at Flea Markets back in 92 - 93 and averaged
several hundred dollars in profits per weekend market.

But gun shows are far better for this than outdoor flea markets.
The guy who I bought all my inventory from is still in business.

His name is Robert Downs and his website is:

Steve, that link is no longer you know where one could purchase that stuff anymore? Years ago (it must've been just after you sold it to him, maybe?) I bought a very small setup from Robert Downs & I remember very well the bright gold pricing papers that he sent with it. I was impressed by really did look nice!
I know that he was buying it from somewhere else & marking the price up, though, b/c it was a BIT high... Let's just say, I thought I could do better, b/c sometimes he'd have for MY price, the price I actually thought it should be selling for, you know?

Can you give any direction now?

I appreciate it!
