There are several types of dealers that you will find, and some of the different types could be great for you to do if you are just getting started with antiques and collectibles.
Weekend dealers—these are dealers who shop at yard sales, garage sales, auctions and even estate sales on Fridays and Saturdays and then sell at flea markets on Sundays. You can also find them in an antique mall occasionally, and this type of dealer is also called a “weekender”.
Vest pocket dealer—this is someone who buys and sells in coins but does not have a coin shop or store. They also do not set up at coin shows, and they are often a part time coin dealer. This type of dealer may not do a large volume of business, and they carry their coins that they are going to sell in their pockets. Many coin dealers got their starts as vest pocket dealers.
Greeddobo—(greed-dough-bough) this is a term that is used by southern coin dealers for someone who is so caught up in making profits that they do stupid things or bad ideas to make money. This term can be applied to just about any type of dealer who does this.
Wholesaler—this is a dealer who sells goods in large quantities at low prices to be sold off by others.
This is just a few of the different types out there. What kinds of dealers have you run across?
