One of my favorite finds ever, and I am SO INCREDIBLY proud that I bought professional lighting BEFORE I took the pictures of this set. These pictures helped the final selling price by at least +30%. I bought all of these figurines from one guy on Craigslist for $50. FIFTY DOLLARS. He said his daughter and wife hated them so he had to get rid of them. I ended up making more than 10 times my money in profit from this haul. Still to this day one of my favorite finds ever.
I still think the Spooky Town haul was my favorite.
The lot had Clive Barker’s Tortured Souls, Alice in Wonderland, Where the Wild Things Are, Akira, and Spawn. I also found this sweet Halo Reach elite statue on Craigslist that I nearly doubled my money on.
Some mediocre finds on this day. The pirate ship ended up being parted out. Paid $5, sold the trap door, figures, and accessories for more than $20. I also had someone reach out to me wanting only to buy the Obi-wan Jedi robes of the blue Build-a-Bear.
Here’s a nice little Craigslist find. Sports action figures and the find of the lot: Bob and Doug McKenzie figures in perfect condition. That beer bottle fits in his hand so perfectly. OCD satisfied.
The find of the day was the pictured HK MP5 airsoft kit. I paid $2 for the gun and all the accessories. Sold for roughly $70. The outdoor timers were also bought for $2 and sold for $60. Both finds in the same yardsale.
The costumes were the goldmine this day. I bought around 30 costumes at $6 each from Bob’s Bargains. I completely bought out their Star Wars section, and did quite well selling them for $30-40 each.
Found the cool gear coconut and pineapple cups on the clearance isle of Wal-Mart for 50% off, making them 75 cents. Resale value: $6-12 dollars.
Goodwill finds from my Destin Florida vacation with Sheng.
I drove to Cullman for this haul. I don’t remember how much I paid for the lot, but it wasn’t much. I still have some of these pieces, they weren’t as easy to move as I thought they’d be. Still made my money back times over, which is good.
Found some of this at a church yardsale, some of it was found at an estate sale, and the rest was found at random yardsales and Bargain Bob’s.
Yoshi claimed a Nala stuffed animal that purrs when you move it. The rest of the stuff was acquired off Craigslist. The big find was the King Leonidas action figure. I believe he went for ~$35.
