I did it! I made one. lol. ;) I've also added up through the H's from my friends page, if I could find you under your listed email or chat name. I'll be adding more as I go, but if you want to just add me that's even easier. ;) I'll be giving away a piece of flair a day. I've allready given out todays.
In 1989, an unidentified middle-aged financial analyst from Philadelphia, paid $4 for a painting at a flea market. He didn't even like the painting, but liked the frame, so he took the picture apart... and when he did, a copy of the Declaration of Independence fell out. "It was folded up, about the size of a business envelope" sas David Redden of Sothebey's Auction House. "He thought it might be an early 19th Century printing and worth keeping as a curiosity." A few years later the man showed the print to a firend, who suspected it might be valuable and encouraged him to look into it. he did, and learned that only hours after finishing work on the declaration in 1776, the Continental Congress had delivered the handwritten draft to a printer with orders to send copies of the Decleration to the several Assemblies, Conventions & Commities, and the Commanding Officers of the Continental Troops, that it be proclaimed in each of the United States & at the head of the army. This was one of the ORIGINAL copies. No one is sure how many were printed that night; today only 24 durvive, and most are in poor condition. But the one in the picture frame was in mint condition, having spent the better part of two centuries undistubed. In 1991, it sold at auction for 2.4 million.

I feel so much better about thrift shopping and garage saling now. ;)

And a positive website instead of a youtube today. It made me smile.

Seriously! Well I'm going to send out a flair a day, and then you can just save them for whenever they make a bigger board.

I always like those stories about someone stumbling upon a valuable treasure at a garage sale. :-)

I always like to imagine that that might happen to me, but, realistically, it probably won't happen. :-)

It might! A book I got for a quarter at a thrift store is going for 65.00 on Amazon right now. :)

Nice! :-)

I once bought some DVD's at a garage sale for something like $5 for the set, and sold them for around $20 each on Amazon. I think it was a set of five? So, rather nice profit there. :D They sold really fast, too! So fast that I could probably have charged even more and still sold them!

I've heard that one before, on an urban legend show. It was one of the ones that turned out to be true.
