Picked up a Montblanc ballpoint pen a garage sale last week for $5. Sold it for $125 within minutes.

Wow sweet Larry legend for $12, less than a new frame's going to cost.

This thread makes me want to go out to the thrift stores and make some money, but then I go and all I find is junk. Maybe I'm looking for the wrong things or my stores just suck.

It's out there man. I don't think I have ever left a store without at least one profitable item.

I usually sell the Legos I find in large lots. Maybe 5 pounds per lot. Sets sell well, better in original packaging, but they do also sell without. There are websites where you can buy missing parts, download and print instructions etc. Bricklinks is one I think.

Some people piece them out are sort by color. I don't want to take the time to do that. Everything usually fits in a Priority bubble mailer so shipping is cheap as well.

As long as the price is right I will buy any legos I can find. Even if the sets are incomplete, I can piece them together cheap or bulk sell them after breaking them apart.

Been doing this for about 3 months now and my second most profitable item was a sealed Lego Marvel Superheroes Attack on Malibu Mansion set. Sold for $55, I bought it for $3.00. If you can find them sealed definitely buy, but even if you can't, as the person mentioned above, they are probably still worth the purchase.

No such luck on Legos, the mark up is stupid at most thrift stores. I am stating to see the raise prices and give a late discount technique at the Salvation Army.

Why did that sell for $1,000? Upon looking just on Ebay you can find it factory sealed for $140, not sure if its series 1 though? Otherwise you can buy it without for like $5. So it being Series 1 and in box would make it a $1,000 item vs $5? I know that in box stuff like Conkers bad Fur Day and the original FF7 can go for absurd money. But I've never even heard of this game and was curious just what makes it worth anything at all.

It's all about the family fun fitness on the box. Cartridge is basically a throw in. Game was recalled by Nintendo, then repackaged with a different box and manual. This version of the box is one of the rarest for the NES.

Anybody ever seen one of these jackets? Has sports center on the sleeve and espn on the chest.

My bad didn't realize it wouldn't quote the attachment. There's a picture on the previous page of this thread.
