Why does this never happen to me?
ahah! oh man did THAT person get a steal!!
it's only better than finding a handbag in that, with all that money, you can buy LOTS of handbags!!
this never happens to me. no rare paintings, no antiques, no hermes bags, no bags of $$$
I know huh? So unfair.....lol
lol that's life isn't it. I was watching antique roadshow once and this woman bought this old looking table for $15 and the antique expert on furniture told her it was a rare piece and she auctioned it for a half a million. I pray that that'll happen to me one day
Wow !! That is pretty amazing. Best of look to them both.
Wow! What are the chances of that happening? Wish I could come across stuff like that....
Very lucky- congrats to him
I try and try to find the jewel among all the cr*p but never happens to me!!!
WOW- thrift stores here I come!
holy!!! lucky guy!
Cool! How awesome to find a piece of history just by chance. Now I wonder what I would do with all that money
I wonder who bought it? I thought items like that would have to be put in a national museum?
Very lucky man for finding it though.
That is sweet, bet the person that donated that feels pretty silly now!
Oh, I saw that episode! It was Federal style card table. The Keno brothers had estimated she would get $150,000 to $250,000 for that table and it went all the way up to $450,000. Even with the auction house taking a third of that, she gets a profit of $299,985. What is that? Like a 1,000,000% return?
