His target market is not the vcf hobbyist.

Many of these were on ebay or wherever, shipped to Long Island and put back
on ebay for 50%+ more than "wholesale" (orig. seller's price).

I have sold items to this guy via ebay inadvertantly and he has relisted
mynitems at a much higher price.  It might take 6 months to sell at the
higher price but eventually they sell.  I wanted to sell quickly and was
not willing to wait so my price was competitive.   His profit comes from
patience and apparently cheap storage.  He probably re-uses the original
shipping box which is smart!

Personally I think people who scoff at this seller are missing the point
... we are mostly a group of educated frugal vc hobbyists and not his
target market.  But if you must have it, he's got it!
