    Lucky Finds, Silver and Collectables!

    Hello! So last year and this year I've gotten into yard sales. Las year I was only looking for coins and silver and gold. I found a few things. But this year i found out that facebook marketplace is an awesome place to make money fast!!! So I've been hitting those yards sales quite a bit to look for stuff to re-sell. Once my Grama found out I was making money online, she send us a ton of junk to sell and to split up among us sisters. Here's how much money I've made and a few pics of the cool stuff I sold/found:

    My Grama gave me a thin 10k chain, a silver earring, a silver ring, the silver spoon, and I bought that 10g. Chicken pin for 50 cents at a yard sale. Keeping for now.

    Haven't sold yet. Bought for 50 cents. Might keep it... it's cute!

    Money made selling online since April 2020: $204.65 cents. About $40 bucks per month on average. That's not including the silver and gold I got from my Grama and from yard sales. Not gonna quit my day job but I enjoy doing it and it give me extra cash. Its fun to find all the cool stuff in the sales. I enjoy it!
    Always check rabbit holes when metal detecting... you never know, there might be karats down there.

    Looks like an extra "side hustle" for you. Keep it up. I'm the kind of person that just sells the stuff in a garage sale to get rid of it.

    Thanks! Yah that's why yard sales are good... people want to get rid of their stuff fast so it's cheap. Thatakes it perfect for me so I can sell for profit! Too bad I can't come to your next yard sale lol

    Guns kill people, and people kill people. We can only hope to control both.
    IDK, Stuff that sells on Amazon, I'll buy nothing that sells for under $30, and then only if I get it for $1 to $3.

    Stuff that sells on Ebay, nothing under $50. The exception is if I can buy 10 or 20 of something. I bought 20 Ann Hand Brooches, all the same design, all new in box for $1 Each. They only sell for $25 to $30 each, but since one listing will sell all 20 eventually, it was a good buy (so far I've sold 5 for $23 each average).

    Big Business is the Biggest special interest.

    Give me liberty or give me death. Just make sure I am not killed by a Terrorist.
    Read my mail, See who I call, See what I read at the Library, inject, inspect, detect, infect, Neglect and select me... Just don't let them there terrorists get me.

    LOL!!! No way. She didnt even realize she had that. When I showed her a picture of it you should of seen her face... udder horror as she looked at the devil and creepy skull on the pin. She said with mouth open eyes wide,"I gave that to you I'm so sorry!!! That's just horrible!!!" It was priceless.

    I don't mind selling stuff for under that amount. It's time consuming but i enjoy it. The place I sell is free and I don't ship to anyone so it makes it easier and more worth while if your just selling small things.

    Exactly! With covid I'm trying not to take on extra shifts because I've a medical condition. So I get to treasure hunt, earn some cash, and learn info about the vintage items as I go along! I'm glad I can sell them... some of the stuff is cool and I want to keep them... however if I kept every cool thing that'd be a problem. I'd have no room for my bed!!!��

    Asking for $55 for this one. 3 unopened blades, one blade in razor head. So cool! Not sure the date for this guy though.

    Nice finds! I have the same problem... my room is filled with antiques, bottles, and whatnots that I've bought (usually with the intent to resell) or found, I'm a hoarder lol.
