    This is hard to narrow down…but probably my BEST and most exciting treasure I found was a Christmas tree box that had been FILLED with antique ornaments from the early 1900’s. It was almost 1:00 in the afternoon and that box was sitting virtually untouched in the front yard of an estate sale about three years ago. Paid 10.00 for the whole box. There were over 100 ornaments in that box neatly wrapped in napkins and old paper. That was soooo fun to go through.

    I’ve had a few. Like the vintage Barbies I bought for $12 and sold on eBay for over $300. It was a great resale find. On a personal find I recently I got my Princess a toddler bed for $5. I don’t think it was ever used. The best thing was I was just about to by a new one for over $100 with mattress. But my favorite was an old jewelry box filled with vintage brooches. I wore a different one everyday for a months. Paid $5 for the box.

    The one that stands out in my mind occurred at the first garage sale my husband and I went to last year. There was a Indiana Jones Lego set sitting on a table for $10 marked “never opened”. Ten bucks was a large chunk of my money that day, but I decided to risk it and looked it up as soon as I got back in the car. About 2 weeks and $200 later it was on it’s way to Australia! That got me fired up for garage sale season.

    I was wearing a cast and in a lot of pain, desperate to get home and get ice on my ankle. Something told me to stop at one of my thrifts. It’s a little church thrift that sometimes has some nice gems for me. A lot of times I don’t stop as they don’t take credit cards and I usually don’t have cash. But this day I did, so I went in.

    I found an Hermes scarf, but was sure it was a fake. Paid $2 and thought that I at least would have a great scarf to wrap around my hair at night. Turns out it was vintage and 100% authentic. Two weeks later it was headed to London and and I had $250 in my Paypal account.
