    Last Weekend We Found...

    ... a bunch of stuff.

    For $20, we purchased:

    - A brand new water pump for a garden water feature. Should bring $30 - $40.
    - The top parts of a red KitchenAid blender. Spent half an hour digging through boxes because the lady insisted the motor was in there somewhere! Probably $40 - $50 in parts.
    - A complete Oster blender. Works fine but these don't bring nearly as much as KitchenAid blenders. Still probably worth $30 or so.
    - A Nurit credit card terminal. Appears to be NIB but I just discovered the power cord is missing. May have to buy one because this should be a $50+ item if I had that.
    - A chambered nautilus shell (maybe worth $20)

    At a different yard sale, we bought:

    - A stainless steel penguin-shaped cocktail shaker for $5. Probably not worth more than $15 - a little disappointing.
    - A small collection of hat pins for $3. Hard to guess what these might bring.
    - A pair of sterling (weighted) salt & peppers shakers for $6. I have seen identical sets on ebay sell for around $50.
    - A NIB golf ball monogramming tool for $1. Also a little disappointing. I'll be lucky to get $10 out of it.
    - A pair of Vivitar binoculars for $5. Should be able to get $30 - $40 for them.

    So for a $40 investment I should be able to net about 4X that amount. Nothing to get all amp-ed up about and a fair amount of work will go into making that happen but still not a bad morning's work.
