    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.
