    Garage Sale Hunting
    Recently picked up a Levenger sealed Circa Starter Kit (for note taking) for $1 and resold for $15+shipping. Not a huge profit, but I like easy to ship items like this ... easy $10!

    My best $1 find was two Helen of Toy games from the 60's in a bargain bin at a local resell store. They sold for $600 and $500 on eBay. Link to the old story here:

    About 4 years ago, I bought an old gun scope that was for a 30's era Winchester at an auction for $1.

    With at least 70% of the attendees wearing either camo or Carhartt, I was shocked that no one else bid on that scope. "That ain't worth nothin'" one guy told me.

    It sold on ebay, in the dead of summer, for $247.

    Levenger is a great brand, I picked up a small leather portfolio made by them last summer at a yardsale for $3, I knew nothing about leather goods but it looked nice so I went for it. Ended up selling for $60 or so.

    Got a great score at the "clearance" stage of an estate sale. Snagged a small handful of jewelry including an unusual pair of clip-on earrings marked sterling inside the hinge. Gave up a couple of overpriced items but got the earrings for 50, and discovered later they were signed by J. Tostrup, a celebrated mid-century modernist silversmith. Started a 7-day auction at 49.99 w/ 79.99 BIN, saw a lot of interest before they sold BIN 18 hours in. Should have gone higher but can't really argue against those kinds of margins.

    I would say so. The company Jones, McDuffie, & Stratton was actually an American company that collaborated with many of the top end English china factories of the Victorian era. They made stuff for Wedgewood, Doulton, Royal Worcester and as in this piece, Minton as well. They also made sure their name was put on every piece they made no matter who they made it for.

    Yes, there are, I actually picked up a 14k necklace & bracelet set mixed in with some costume jewelry at a church fundraiser rummage sale, it was early,I was using my flashlight and the lady said $1.00 takes it all, I had thought I seen the glint of gold so I said sure. I can't remember the weight but I scrapped the necklace for around $450.00 and my wife took possession of the bracelet. This was before I took pictures of my finds.

    Church rummage sale one year ago I picked up a bag of "old silverware", not sterling or anything but I was hoping for something...couldn't find the pattern for these until recently I stumbled across it. Sold about 30 pieces in two lots for $150. Yes, Oneida. Bent, worn and almost went into the scrap pile. "Patrick Henry" The picture is of the first lot, the 8 teaspoons I found in my scrap bucket later brought $71. of that total.

    My latest $1 find that sold for a nice profit was the Swarovski Airplane. Actually it was only 77cents at a trashy GW, the only reason I go there is for the girls...
    Sold for $50 and still only searching there for the treasures...
