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.
HUGE HUGE score on this day. So I pull up to this old couple sitting outside their garage with tables set up. As I approach, I see boxes. ALWAYS an attention getter. Boxes mean money.
I quickly realize that this old couple is getting rid of all of their Halloween decorations… like all of them. The husband must have told his wife to get rid of all that Halloween crap because everything was on the table. So I begin researching what is up with these Spooky Town houses and quickly realize two things: 1) they don’t make these anymore and 2) they are valuable.
I ask the wife what she wants for them. $15 for the small ones $30 for the big ones. I ended up getting the entire Halloween lot for $60. The find of the day was “The Wheel of Horror” ferriswheel. It alone sold for $300 + shipping.
Still to this day it is the best find I’ve had.
