    Sometimes I'll find memorabilia in goodwill and sell it on ebay. You never know what might pop up in one of those store.

    My co-worker bought a plate yesterday for $1.50. She was going to engrave on it until she noticed it was a Tiffany plate and worth a couple hundred bucks. I need to go thrift-storing now....

    Similar case here in the UK recently. A guy bought a bag in a charity shop for £20 and when he got home found out it was by a famous Irish designer who did stuff for the Royals and what not... Think he had offers of something like £250,000-300,000 for it..
