This may be a somewhat silly question but I'll ask it anyway since it's definitely applicable to history:
Where would be a good place to buy historical militaria stuff in order to sell it on eBay/personal site? After quite a few rejections for employment, I'd like to strike out on my own with a few dollars of loaned money from family and see if I can do something that isn't basic wage slavery.
My mom's colleague's husband told me once that he was in auto sales, but when I asked if that was a good idea he said to do what you know. I know history and firearms, so I figured I'd try to sell stuff that involve that. Stuff like buttons, helmets, uniforms, bayonets, supplies in general, propaganda posters, etc. You know, anything a collector would find interesting. Maybe firearms if possible (I live in the US and would need a C&R), but not for right now. Not just strictly from the world wars either like I'm seeing so much of, but I understand authentic stuff from beyond that would be a bit harder to find.
Any advice? Am I retarded?
