    One dealer used to kiss the luck I gave him. Not seen anyone spit on it. Buyers surely will bid a bid more if they know you give luck. No skin off their's who they're buying for that pays....and they pocket the cash.

    Ideas for YFC first meet

    Oh I don't know 🤔 10 year olds know way more nowadays than I did when I was 10.
