    I don't usually look at ties ( don't know much about what to look for) but I saw a guy going through them at Goodwill's 50% off day. He left this one behind. I think he was actually looking to wear them instead of flipping them. It is a Jerry Garcia tie.

    Bought for $.50 sold for $10.00 on ebay within 2 hours.

    Ties are great sellers. And at $10 selling price, you will do well. I just picked up a Gianni Versace and a Brioni tie. I keep buying them to sell and also wear. And GW sells them at $1.99 each. I have literally hundreds of them in buckets. I need to start selling them like I said!

    +1 for ties, I sell them all the time. I posted on here probably a year or two ago about a total bonanza I found at a goodwill no less, 10-15 designer ties in one spot, probably $500 worth of ties for a buck or two per. Most ties you could get $5-10 for if you were patient, I stick to the higher margin ones. Vineyard Vines, Hermes, Ferragamo, Thomas Pink, are usually good for $40-$100 per tie. Vintage skinny ties with cool minimal art deco designs can bring $20-30, vintage wool & knit ties the same.

    Oddly, some classic designers (Yves St Laurent, Dior, Givenchy)'s ties sell very poorly, never been sure why. Others, like versace, sometimes do well and sometimes don't.

    Anyways, keep going back to that tie rack, it pays off!

    I sold a Snap on ratchet sold for 37.99 that was in a box lot of about 20 items that I paid $15 for.

    A pair of vintage 1963 x-ray specs sold for $24.99. It was in another box lot of items that amounted to less than $1 for each item.

    4 Antique Beatty glass ribbed opalescent open salts that I got for (4)$1. I sold the blue ones for $15.99 each and the white ones for $12.99 each.

    That's all lately.

    Almost 2 years ago I picked up 2 identical vintage Hawaiian collarless shirts for $1.50 each. Listed the first one BIN (good until canceled) a couple months later & it finally sold last week for $75. Immediately listed the other one and it sold yesterday for $104. They cost slightly more than $1 but close enough.

    Been a while since posting ... finally had something to post about! My wife went to a rummage sale and remembered me telling her to buy any cheap priced war board games (especially Avalon Hill). She found 4 of them for $1 each including this gem, On To Richmond. Paid $1, sold for $165. New or with unpunched pieces, it goes for over $300.

    Nice. I bought a board game last week. It won't sell for anything like yours did but the pieces are still sealed so it's never been played with.That and the fact it was only a dollar made me buy it. It's called BY JOVE by Aristocrat and is based on the stories from Greek mythology. This isn't mine but the box looks like this...




    I'm gonna BIN it for 29.99 w/ free shipping.

    Also, here is a good site for Board Games... https://boardgamegeek.com/

    Woo-Hoo!
    Finally can post an actual $1.00 find here.
    I've had stuff bought for under $10.00 that I sold for a decent price, but never an actual $1.00.
    Bought 5 guitar picks at a garage sale .
    Two Fender, one 7M3, (Seven Mary Three, 1990's band), and two Paul Stanley/KISS guitar picks.
    Turned out to be from their second tour.
    $425.00 for the pair.
    Saving up for the MineLab Equinox, nothing like paying for half a detector with a couple of pieces of celluloid!

    I sold this little .50 vase in less than 4 hours to someone in the UK for 79.99. Guess I should have tried for 99.99 instead. Made by T G Green & Co. Ltd.

    Made a few $1 item sales recently, one of which has to be the best sale I ever made (in MANY years of selling). It was a very rare and obscure Civil War regimental sutler's token... paid <$1 from a junk bin--and sold for $242! I had no idea what it was and was about to get rid of it for a few bucks when I decided to do a bit more research. It sure paid off. Also got an Old West hotel token from the same junk bin (<$1) that sold for $45.

    You people are making out well with the smalls. I've added guitar picks and obscure tokens to my shopping list.

    From the past couple of weeks:

    tarot deck: free with auction lot, sold for $45 (eBay)
    vintage medical book: included with a lot of books. Paid $1 for the whole lot, sold this one for $25 (eBay)
    pair of brass bookends: bought for $1, sold for $35 (consignment shop, I get 50%)
    book on Japanese embroidery: free with lot of books, sold for $58 (Amazon)
    vintage copper baseboard radiators: found on side of road, sold for $60 (scrap)

    So I haven't quite sold this yet but I'm very sure of the value and I can't remember the last time I got anything near this good for a buck: last weekend I picked up a wildly rare retired James Avery figural raccoon ring at a tiny dark church basement rummage sale (obvs for $1 lol). I can find two examples currently for sale online, one @ $360 and one @ $400, and should easily be able to sell it locally for 300. Quite the soulful little dude imo.
