TOPIC: What interesting item have you discovered while ‘thrifting’? 

 

An antique marble bust found in a Texas thrift shop turned out to be a 2,000-year-old Roman relic. A thrift store find from 2018 has created quite a stir for one Texas woman after discovering that the marble bust is 2,000 years old.

When Laura Young bought the sculpture at an Austin Goodwill in 2018, her thoughts were that it was “clearly antique – clearly old…but that old?”

You’ve likely heard the phrase “collect them all!” when it comes to toys, cards, bobbleheads, or almost anything else in a series, like Beanie Babies, Cabbage Patch Kids, Barbies, even Pokemon cards! You may still have some or all of whatever you collected as a kid today, but they may be better at collecting dust than dollars for you. Experts suggest that these lines of toys and collectibles are the most common people believe will be worth a lot of money – but aren’t.

*Comic books are one of the hotter items for collectors right now, especially from the 1940s, ’50s, and ’60s. They are usually more valuable.

The same goes for another popular item for collectors: baseball cards.

Worth? You can search your item on Google or eBay, for example, to see how much they are selling for. You may also want to consider taking your items to local collector shops or auction houses for an expert to review its value.

Clothing is an item that sells best in thrift stores, accounting for over 30% of revenue in the Thrift Store industry.
