One item to be “on the lookout for” in your thrifting adventures is a product put out by Mr. Coffee (and now discontinued) called the Cocomotion hot chocolate maker.
They have a FANTASTIC sell through rate on Ebay and most go for between $50.00-$150.00. If you can get one with a box and the instructions, the higher the price.
I found TWO in one week at two different thrift stores! So they are still out there!
