Pretty nice haul from Bargain Bob’s in October of 2015. The find of the day was probably the Pokemon Archeops Pokedex figure.
I was laying in bed one Friday night. Before I drifted off to sleep, I figured I would check Craigslist for the heck of it to see what was out there. I run across this insane looking post with a TON of Legos. From the thumbnail I could already tell there were Star Wars sets involved. The guy had put in the post that he would be having a yardsale to get rid of all of them at 5 a.m.
I set my alarm for 4:30.
4:30 comes early. I jump out of bed, throw my clothes on, and dial in my GPS on his location. I had just purchased the Yard Sale wagon the previous week. I get to the guy's house, and I'm greeted with the sight above. I could hardly contain my excitement. I ended up getting the ENTIRE lot for $600. I made an incredible profit on this lot and it is easily my favorite find ever.
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.
