    Machine tools, especially B&S or Starrett, can be quite collectible. I've never sold something for nearly that much but wow, great find!!!

    It sure helps!!! The buyer said NOT to put in an invoice in the box which I thought was kind of funny!

    *Sorry for no photos!* Check out SOLD hand painted needlepoint canvases online to see what they go for!

    Recent rummage sale purchase was a large plastic tote FILLED with hand painted needlepoint canvases. Probably 50-60 canvases? I knelt down to look at them and to see what the sign on the bin said, figuring it was probably a per piece price... nope! It said "All for $8.00". Just as I was getting super excited the seller sees me looking and says "Oh, my gosh you can have it for $3.00... I just want to be rid of them!" Don't need to do any more convincing! So per piece price is pennies!

    So far they've all sold in the $30-$40 range/each. Barely scratched the surface and already almost $200 sold.

    Bonus of course is that they're lightweight and non-breakable so easy shipping.

    Needlepoint stuff can be very, very good to you - embroidery thread, handpainted canvases (especially signed/known designer), kits, good wooden hoops (Duchess, Princess, Royal, Queen - if felt-lined check that felt isn't moth chewed). Most can be found relatively cheaply as well.

    I have had good luck on the embroidery thread. Bought about 100+ skeens (?) for a couple of dollars. Made good profit on them and did not take long at all to sell.

    I bought over 100 Dimensions Gold needlepoint kits that were discontinued. Haven't posted about them on this thread because the cheapest was $1.21 and prices went up to $1.99 each so they don't qualify. Because someone else brought them up.....except for 5 or 6 that sold in the $15 range and around 12 that sold for over $100 they sold between $30-75 each.

    Was driving home and saw this little garage sale this past weekend. Walked up and saw this for $1.00 next to a Chinese cheapo watch. Self winding Waltham (Gold Plated) with the wwII leather band. I'm not retiring but she sold already for over $40.00. Glass and backing had some scratches. Click image for larger version.

    Bought a deck of brand new, never been used, Queen Elizabeth playing cards that came to the states in about 1977. Paid 50 cents at an estate sale and sold them for about $15.00 on line. Not a killing, but not bad either. Sorry Ė no pictures at this time, but I will look for the ones I used to advertise (this happened a couple of years ago).

    Sorry if this seems like a silly post in advance, but a recent find for AUD $1 was a Kids Meal / Happy Meal Toy which ended up selling for AUD $30 (Hungry Jack's Jurassic Park 1992) . Just a tip to keep a lookout for these, especially if they're unopened and are 20 years old or more. A lot of people would never consider the items to be worth anything, but they're something that pop up in bunches occassionally (up to 10+). I picked up 10 for $10 on Sunday, but this was one of the better ones.

    Picked up a bunch of CDs from a local thrift for 55 cents each early last week. I sold a lot of 21 for $102, a lot of 14 for $56, and a Rush limited edition CD for $49.50. I've got several more listed in the $25-50 each range that haven't sold yet.
