sweet. I think I sold one of those on craigslist about a year ago for $15 or $20.
Here are my finds from the last couple weeks
M1 rifle scabbard - paid $6, sold for $68
seven Bud Man Beer Steins - paid $70, sold for $320
MIP 1989 Aurora Slot Car - paid $1, sold for $38
And last weekend, I bought this baby doll for my youngest daughter for $3. I didn't think anything about it, gave it to her when I got home, then I decided to look I up. It is a china baby doll made in Germany by Grace Puttman (I believe). The doll sells for over $200. She is keeping it.
My luck was much better this weekend.
At a random garage sale stop a lady told me she had some Voltron stuff. I got this:
Plus a Trendmasters reissue Voltron in the box, near complete, extra Voltron I parts, G1 Transformers Jetfire and a Voltron I knock-off.
She practically begged me to buy it all. She said "How about you take it all for $8"!

Oh man, you are lucky. Wish I could find that!
I've been passing these baby bear planters up left, right and center for years. Dumb move! I see them so often, I figured that they were newer. Seems like something they would sell in a hospital gift shop. I guess they probably did, in the 60's/70's. Anyways, they can go for some really decent prices.japan bear planter | eBay
The one with the bears on the bike just sold for $122. Prices seem to be all over the place with these, but at thrifts they're usually under $3, so for the same price as a scratch ticket I'm better off buying these and trying my luck. It's strange too, because they do fit into my collection of uber-cute cookie jars, kewpie dolls and rubber faced rushton stuff that I dig, but I just don't really want to get into collecting them.
Picked up these games this morning at the thrift. Total came to $2.50.
I know almost nothing about RPG games like this, but enough to know a good deal when I see one.
