Hmmmmm...in a storage unit we found 3 or 4 small gold coins. Like dime size so not worth too much but cool anyway. Oh and in the same unit found a silver bracelet that I listed starting at $75.00 and it closed at over $500. Didn't really look like much but it was a mid century designer piece. At an estate auction we bought a sewing machine for $30.00 and sold it for $495.00 in a matter of hours. Fun times...

My best find of 2014 was a two thousand dollar elliptical cross trainer. I paid $200 for the unit, made a grand selling the furniture and kept the cross trainer for myself. (Now I just need to convince myself to use it regularly.)  ???

You gave up $2000 for a used elliptical cross trainer?

Yep, and you should see the treadmill I got the same day. It's got a fan, an iPod dock, surround sound and a TV built into it. Been thinking about hooking it up to cable.

Did you know they make anti-gravity treadmills?

Yes, I used to see George walk Astro on one at the beginning of every Jetson's episode.

I don't see this as giving up $2000 at all. You can always flip it later when you get bored with it. I keep lots of stuff with value and then sell it later. Or sell something I had that it replaces.
