    All Types Of Treasure Hunting

    Old perfume bottles and video games!

    I just found this section and thought I'd tell you about my two best scores at yard sales:

    1. I bought an entire Nintendo NES system for $25.00, which is included the game console, controllers, gun, and about 50 games. Sold it as an entire lot on eBay for just over $150.00!

    2. Picked up six old Avon perfume and cologne bottles for $2.00 total, sold all six on eBay, totaled $65.00!

    Not bad, but I have to get out and score more!!

    Happy yard saling everyone!!

    yes people laugh at these but they are cute.the reason they notworthmuch is soooooooooooo many made.but slowly this is changing.there are actually a few people still using up 20 to 50 yr old product and then discarding the container.andthe boxes are dissappearing.used to find mint in box for next to nothing.now price is still low butt often box not present.
