That electrician was polish guaranteed.
I swear about ten years ago I visited an aunt there was an outlet about 6 inches above the bathtub rim right by the soap dish .and I'm talking 220 not 110.also her kitchen light switch had a socket right beside it so at night just feeling for the switch I got buzzed maybe half a dozen times .good times .sobers u up quick will tell you that.

Sexist?
Do we really need to be that overly sensitive here?
Not even to mention that a good deal in this thread is not even on topic as they are not truly thrift finds.

TFW the dude in front of you at an estate sale cops 19 Hermes carres for $10 each and doesn't know what he has. I scored big time but not a thriftening cause of this mope. Pictures to follow.

This.
No one buys those ugly things in bulk without knowing what they are.

He didn't - I spoke to him outside, he said he liked the colors figured they had to be worth something, wanted me to verify if they were legit. Asked me how much I thought they were worth. My facepalm was unstoppable.

That would kill me, nothing's worse than knowing what you just barely missed.

Glad you scored some other stuff at least.

He was unsure if $10 ea was too much put it that way.

...that's when I say "my grandma likes those - I'll give you double what you paid" and see what's up.

I don't know, I would have played it exactly like that guy did.

Either way ouch.

How much are those worth each on the aftermarket?

I would have tried to delicately pry a bit & see if he would sell.

By the way: where was that estate sale?
