What is the best item you found in a thrift store or yard sale?
Shoes are probably the best bargain I've found at the local Goodwill Store - a brand new pair of brown leather Clark's boots, that would've cost around $70 and a brand new pair of New Balance tennis shoes, that would've cost $40+. I paid $4 for each pair.
Rare books. People collect books for years and then sell at yard sales. Every once in a while, I find a real gem...
I once found an Indian basket for 25 cents, and later traded it to an Indian sculptor in the SW for $400 off the cost of going to a sculpture symposium.
A North Face coat for ten dollars....I have had it for ten years and it is still in excellent condition.
I paid 25.00 for a complete set of vintage ivory and aqua china with platinum accents. The plates alone are worth 18.00 apiece. It's tempting to sell it, but I love it too much!
A 1965 Beatles lunchbox. I got it for free, listed it on eBay for 99 cents, and it sold for $547.
