ive been a ebay member for almost a year now and i alweys wondered how powersellers alweys have so many joes constantly? is there some secret warehouse you can go to and buy them for cheap.
to me it would be pointless for them to buy them off ebay from random sellers even though every now and again you can get a deal. its just a questiojn ive alweys wondered. if anyone knows please feel free to explain.

it's always been my thought they get them from yard sales or estate sales maybe, or they may luck into some joe lots selling late at night on ebay. there are probably other ways too but those are what i thought of.

Yeah I would go with estate and garage sales or old antique markets and outdoor flea markets as well.
Plus I think they also buy these lots on ebay, get them in , take inventory, and then put them right back on ebay with a starting price of slightly more then they paid for it.

yard sales in late summer, all the college kids go off and parents clean house. around fall and spring semesters are prime yard sale/flea market times for vintage toys.

LOL, all I can picture is a giant costco sized building hidden in the mountains filled to rafters with Joes.

All of the above.
Many eBayers will buy large lots of figures that are available on eBay. As noted, they take inventory, etc., and re-list.
When I had my store that's what I would do.
