I am sure sometimes he invests  in items that take over a year to sell or not selling all.
I would say he offers a legitimate service  actually his blue relay computer digital trainer  for is a fair price $600.
If a museum or a props master for a movie production  had to have something quick for a display or production they consider it nice to know there is a stock of items out there.
Many times props folks have to put a collection of props together fast and don't have time or patience to play it like a hobbyist.  
In the real world... time is more valuable than money.

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!
