Halloween Costume Goldmine

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.

Craigslist Remote Controlled Cars

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.

Estate Sale and Pokemon

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.

Welcome to Spooky Town!

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.

Vintage Craigslist Haul and Hot Wheels

Everything but the Hot Wheels were obtained from a shady guy who lived out in the sticks of Harvest. Everything smelled like cigarette smoke. Ended up making a nice profit from the lot. I didn’t do too well on the Hot Wheels cars. I made profit, but not as much as I thought I would.

Yardsale and Mountain Biking

The find of the day was the pictured Fender guitar wall metal sculpture. Picked it up for $1 and ended up selling it for roughly $50. After I was done yardsaling, me and the guys went mountain biking on Monte Sano mountain.
