The first things I like you to know is we are buying these things via www.dekada.asia
Second is we are dealers of these items so please expect a buying price with a space we can still make a profit on it.
Third is not because it is old it is collectible and expensive. Some of these items are indeed rare and highly collectibles. Some are considered common yet still collectible. Some are for keeps and perhaps some depending on condition has trash value.
Forth and last thing is we do not mind if you will learn the art of trading it. If all of us are doing it
right then we believe in general as Filipino traders we will all be known for our competence, reliability and hopefully will be internationally competitive on the online market.

Popular titles that has collectible value are:
HANDLING IS IMPORTANT:
Because of the age and the materials use "78s" that survive the millennium are fragile and quick to break.
Because buyers of these items are international collectors with high standard and high product expectation.
Because it is possible these fragile items my have 21 days to 45 days transit time cross the seas.
Because it may be subjected to custom inspiration.
It is important you know tested way of handling and packing fragile items.
Transparent tape all around to position the plaka in the middle of the base. Kailangan transparent para kita agad for custom inspection. Minsan nasisira ang items, na babasag because of rigorous custom inspection. Custom do total search when they doubt the content of the parcel has hidden drugs with in along side of the item. So might as well wrap in transparent materials para kita agad for custom inspection., di ba?
Observe - On the average we have hair falling every 4 to 6 seconds. So you have to check every now and then if your hair is included sticking on the tape you are using when packing parcels.
Foreigner online buyers are very particular or sensitive to this. Any inclusion of biological samples, whether intentional or accidental could impress the item or the parcel they have received might have some foreign decease. This is where the buyer start to be critical of the transaction and look for more fault they can find to have an excuse to return the item.
Observe - the weight of your parcel. It should not be over the allotted postage your buyer paid for it. Any portion of excess gram is one bar up to the next postage or courier rates, if you are not careful you will loss your profit here.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE:
In dimension this parcel will be considered as 2.7 kilos that is a possible Php 4350 payable to Singapore Post.
But observe it is only 335 grams that is a possible Php 1250 Philippine Postal Postage. If I am not careful in packing it I go more than 500 grams that is a possible Php 2559 in postage.
All the materials I use- simple and basic.
If you will ship this item via Philippine post, you need to buy a Philpost marked box. That would be an additional weight. But because I have packed this fragile item with less than 200 grams of packing materials, I still have space for the Philpost box even if it will be added to the 335 grams original weight. Over all final weight after everything is less than 500 grams, shipment off to Germany. I am still with-in the postage cost the buyer paid for the shipping which is $32.5
