When it’s hot, people are constantly looking for “cool”. And what keeps things cool?  A cooler!

Keep your eye out for the Yeti brand of cooler. These are highly sought after for their durability and insulation features.  Used Yeti coolers sell between $100-$400 depending on size and condition.

They have an amazing sell -through rate too!

When I’m thrifting,  I love going through those bins of kitchen utensils looking for interesting ones I don’t have.  I’ll now be keeping my eyes open for the “Foley” brand of kitchen utensils.

These vintage utensils (serving spoons, spatulas, forks, etc.) sell between $10-$50 depending on utensil, color, and condition.

Foley is a brand that has been around since the 1920′s, so they have produced quite a few items.

A good reason to double check  the manufacturer when you’re pawing through those bins!

I’ve written before about some back issues of magazines being valuable.

The interesting thing is that they don’t even have to be particularly old to be worth some money.  The magazine “The Fretboard Journal” came out in 2005 and it’s premiere issue has sold between $80-$300. Other subsequent issues have sold between $30-$70 a piece!

I love including magazines in my treasure hunting because they are very often overlooked at estate sales and garage sales. I shudder to think how many have been thrown away!

Labor Day will be here before you know it….and so will all the crab boils!

Be ready for the seafood rush (and fall stewing season) with any stock pots you may have in your inventory!

Used stock pots sell between $50-$250 depending on the metal and brand.  They have a very good sell-through rate, and probably better once the cooler weather hits.

If you’re like me, you’ve broken your share of dishes and cups.

The nice thing about Ebay, is that you can find just about anything you have broken.  And that includes lids.

A lot of us may pass over a broken teapot or dish if it’s cracked or flawed. But wait a second!  How does the LID look?  For many people, the lid can be very valuable.

A quick search on Ebay showed lids going between $10-$200 depending on the brand/make of item.  And the great thing about lids, they are easy to ship!

So give that broken  piece a second glance…you might have a hidden gem in its lid!

Check out current prices of lids here on Ebay.

It’s REALLY hot outside, so this item may really seem out of season.

In your thrifting adventures, keep your eye out for the Webkinz Timber Wolf stuffed animal! Most of these are selling between $50-$300 on Ebay. If they still have the tags, they will earn the higher price.  Great sell-through rate too!

So check out those stuffed animal bins thoroughly!
