One thought on “What is the best deal or most unique item?

  1. I purchased a bookcase that a ladies’ grandfather made in the early part of the 1900’s for $20. She told me that another customer complained about the price being too high. The craftsmanship alone is worth more than what I paid for it. The sentimental value is priceless.

    We also purchased a luggage topper for a vehicle for just $5 a few years back. It served its purpose well and has move on to another family.
