Look for opportunities among naïve sellers. Many sellers are not familiar with the items they are selling at auction. They may not know when they have an item of value and have it listed at a very low minimum without a reserve. Another common mistake that sellers make is putting the item in the wrong category. The true collector may never find it there, making it a great bargain!
