    A vintage Karl Lagerfeld handbag which only cost me £2.99. 5 rare vintage dolls for £2.00 and a Vivien Westwood shirt for about 3/4 pound. Oh and a decorated brass shell from world War 1(which is called trench art) for a couple of pound😀
    A vintage patchwork quilt from the 60s or 70s for £5 and a 1920s silk double bed spread for not much money. I've also picked up a lot of Vintage jewellery over the years. 💰💵😁💷

    I went to an estate sell near my home. I knew this was a great place to find some awesome unique things. I ran across some costume jewelry & I sell on Etsy & a few other stores do I looked around. I picked up a brooch/necklace pendant that read 925 silver & had a few markings (markings and stamps are always good!) anyways I paid $1!!!! Turns out it’s was a Norwegian Norse design by a mid century artist. Design name was “Viking fleet of ships” but I can’t remember the actual foreign translation. I was told this by a collector who left me a message. I sold this item for $200 I do believe. It was solid silver. I never found the exact brooch online while researching but one time. It was sold on a auction site for high end items for $250. I have found many gems in my day, but that one still comes to kind when I tell someone of why I love old things. It’s like a treasure hunt for a few dollars. One more item... if you ever think of throwing out grandmas ratty old quilt well don’t! I bought a quilt top from a young lady that was doing a grandmas estate. It was only a top not even a while quilt. It was a yo-yo quilt. (Tedious circles made one by one by hand) & I paid $2 & sold it for $250 to $300. I would have to look but that one was a beauty too. Antique & vintage quilts are prized possessions in my home! There is always something more than meets the eye if you only pay attention! Just because it’s old doesn’t mean it’s not amazing! I am fascinated by history & old items. I do my listings with stories is I am able. I believe passing them on is a big part of the item. Makes them more meaningful!

    I enjoy board games. On a whim one day i went to my local thrift and found a backgammon board, but the store taped it shut so I had to wonder if all the pieces were there. I got home and opened it it looked beautiful! There was a name burned into this exotic wood....David Levy, who was the craftsman. I paid 5.90 and when I looked online I believe they retail for 360.00!! I was beyond grateful!

    Another great post! I remember how I was rejected when applying for my first card, but all this had been something of past when I contact this great credit expert which a lot of people had testify to his service to johnhacker . We both got into agreement and to my surprised I was approved with a 7k limit after I re-applied. Having a good credit card is important for building credit and that's exactly what captain spy did to my credit report you can send him a message on or send him a text on +18086339526 I'm sure he will never let you down, thank me later

    My grandmother was given a bunch of costume jewelry by a woman she cared for. Turned out there was a platinum ring, a band, and a flower breastpin that was gold with a diamond. Never had either appraised, and I kept the ring. Someone else has the pin, I hope.

    My mother loves jewelry. One day, she went to the flea market, one of her favorites places, and bought a box of costume jewelry for $5. There was a silver and cubic zirconia ring in the box that she particularly liked and was the reason she bought the whole thing. Unfortunately, the ring didn't fit her, so she brought it to a jeweler to have it resized. While resizing it, the jeweler became frustrated when the silver wouldn't adhere to the band. When he realized why, he fixed it, then shouted to his staff, "Put this in the safe!!" He called my mother the next morning before they even opened and told her she had to come in to get it because he didn't have the insurance to keep something like that in his shop. It turned out to be platinum and diamond! The ring was valued at more than $75,000!
