Default Here are a couple of secret search tips.

Try this, to get familiar with how you want to search, we all have preferences.

Start with a general search of everything, like you were doing only now put

custom made in one search
custom built in the next
and just
custom or customized

The first one will turn up everything from custom made drapes/curtains to custom made dog houses...these often have higher perceived value too.

Where are the affluent, both old money and the people building the McMansions in your area? This is where you'll find 1000 dollar curtains and drapes, if they have a newspaper that covers the area, look for moving sales.

Start without any search restrictions...and make a list, like I did of all the stuff in a given range, pick your own...again, this is all education about your area, what is being sold and such.

Also, if you see a mower for sale, THINK BUNDLE so that maybe some high schooler or college "kid" can start his own lawn care business.

I advise you to become an expert on all the buying, selling and consignment stores in your area, so you can build a network of buyers both to sell to and to consult with.
