    This is my most recent find for less than $1. It was only 15cents. In a basket of scrap jewelry for crafts. It is marked 14k on the charm and chain. It weighs a total of 8 grams. Did a happy dance after that one

    I just passed up some text books today. Maybe I ought to go back and get 'em.

    My best recently was a Zelda game. Paid a buck and got $30.

    I think my two best dollar (or under) finds came from the same sale. I haven't sold them, but I did recently have them appraised. First, I found an 18th Century bronze Buddha Head statue that I paid $0.50 for and it was appraised by an Asian Arts dealer for $500-750. Second -- and everyone except the appraiser laughed at me when I showed them this one -- is an old ceramic Chinese statue that I paid $1.00 and the appraiser estimated the value at $250 in its current condition but said that in its hey day would have fetched $500. Not too bad. I also found two stone samples from the Sutro Tunnel in Nevada with original labels on them (same sale, $1.00 for both) but I haven't had them appraised. There is a museum in NV that wants them though, so they do have historic value at least. Man, that was a good sale. Mid afternoon too!

    Maybe offer free shipping on it though. The planter... ehh, not so much.

    Here's one: Paid a $1 for 10kt gold bangle that was in a box with junk costume jewelry. The funny thing was that it was sitting out on a table at g.s. for two days before I found it. The mark was perfectly clear with naked eye but easily missed. You had to slide the bangle open and it was on the connecting piece. Just goes to show that you should take your time while looking at jewelry.

    The trick is that the books need to have been recently published. I would guess that anything more than 5 years old is not going to be worth much. I got crazy lucky with the ones I found.

    The best for me so far is several old poker chips I bought for a total of 50 cents, then sold for I think 157.50 (which surprised the heck out of me). I thank the History channel for a show about the history of Las Vegas, with a couple of the chips that I knew came from casinos that no longer exist. But my new one that I am working on this afternoon my wife reminded me that I bought them last year. At a garage sale that I got to late, I found some gas station water paste, which I bought for 50 cents a piece and sold for $5. But then I noticed a bunch of gas station pump printers in a box in the corner. I asked if they were for sale and she said $3 bucks and you can take them all. So, for 20 cents a piece, I got 15 thermal gas pump receipt printers. Turns out that they were pulled from a Shell franchise that went bust in town (they owned it). They were seperated (guy ran down to Florida with another woman) and she just wanted it out of her sight. Never forget to take advantage of a scorned woman! I don't have the sold price yet - getting them listed - but I am in good shape!

    Wow! Great score! There are a few of those printers that sold on ebay for between $50-150. That could be a $1000 find! Great job!

    .99 cents each at goodwill. I turned down $400 for these albums but might sell one day.

    Got this sight out of a dollar box about a year ago. It was a little rusty and cleaned up only fair it would have brought $300 had it been a little nicer it is a very rare item.

    Lyman no 35 sight for 98 Mauser rare no drill/tap : Gun Sights at GunBroker.com

    There were a lot of other great things in that dollar box but $200 for a $1 is a great deal.

    Last month I got a sterling bowl that weighs 240 grams for a $1. One of my better sterling deals.

    Here's one I forgot about. A 900 silver donkey. I was told the stone was emerald. But I dunno. I obviously was not told that by the seller though. It's 27 grams. And has been on my silver shelf. I listed it $300 Obo. I dunno what it's worth...

    The XOX earrings sold for $20? I have the exact same pair. I know there are a lot of XOXO necklaces out there in gold.
