I bought six watches at two estate sales for a total of $132. I got $2810 in total.

Didn’t somebody thrift (or find at an estate sale) an odd ball watch that ended up selling for $14K?
That was a LeCoultre Deep Sea Alarm, bought for $6 and sold for $35k.

Recently, a woman reached into a thrifted couch years after purchasing to find a Rolex Paul Newman Daytona, sold for $225k.

Check the couches friends.

I was thinking of somebody on here that sold a watch for $14K that they had thrifted or gotten at an estate sale.

Thrifting at 10,000+ feet... I scored three Melanzana fleeces at a consignment shop and picked up three at the factory (one for my older son).

Happy Friday, thriftbros! Periodic Brewing’s Hope Pass IPA makes this town feel like it’s at sea level!

Updated!

I also want to give a huge shoutout to @txwoodworker for sending me the RL mug! Not only is the mug great, but he also included an awesome RL pocket square that's going right into the rotation. Just a reminder that this thread is filled with awesome people, and that this is a great community! Thanks again @txwoodworker, really appreciate it!
You're very welcome! Paying it forward for all the great stuff that has come my way from this community.
