    Hi Greyhound!

    A MIB Dragon for $100! Oh my! I would have definately needed CPR after that one. I searched for a dragon for years, I finally broke down and paid a small fortune for one. Now that I have him I feel all warm and fuzzy with a slight tinge of guilt for the insane price I paid! But he is beautiful! How long had the auction been on about 5 seconds? HAHA You should go to the convention in Vegas with luck like that! This was a good one! Donna

    I guess my BEST bargain for solids would be the venetian scroll necklace I found at a church bazaar for $2.00 also not a solid but at the same place I bought a brand new Gap long denim jacket for $5.00 – I love flea markets, bazaars, tag sales, etc. I'm an addict! Lucky for me, my husband enjoys a good hunt!

    From my experiences S. Florida is a good place to be searching for bargains in solids. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> In the past couple of years we have found some good ones; a Red Christmas Camellia in an antique mall, in great condition for $8., <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> the Green Camellia for $20. at local antique show. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> a bouquet (topiary) also $20., <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> same show different date. Got a Golden Times w/original chain at a flea market for $5. While canvassing a flea market a few weeks ago I saw my husband buying something. When I walked up saw him giving the vendor $40. and then I saw the cowboy boot. Oh my! a boot for $40.? Then I saw the vendor give him back $10. and I almost fainted. <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ /> It is perfect, everything except the box. Now I have a pair of Cowboy Boots. I have wanted a pair ever since I saw that scene by Ann & Ken. Last week the find at the same flea market was the Full Moon. The gold frame and the gold chain are perfect, with label and all perfume – $10. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ /> Found a Sports Fragrance w/hangtag and perfume for$2. at another flea market.

    Sounds like we find a lot of bargains but we go to a lot of these events. I plan these outings to get my guy out and moving instead of sitting in front of TV on weekends. He enjoys it too when we find a goody. Guess I am saying that it takes a lot of looking to find one good deal.

    Phyllis,

    I knew you were going to bring up the Camellia! <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> (We both go to the same antique mall) I never found anything good there though.

    My best find and most exciting was the person who contacted me asking if I wanted to buy the ginger jewel, silver flower and secret treasure necklaces all MIB for $150 each. I know it's not that great a buy but it was just getting them all at the same time.

    I also came across a ginger jewel necklace on ebay BIN for $125 now I have two, one with soft Youth Dew and one with Cinnabar, both the same reddish color.

    I especially have a love for the vintage necklaces- I am crazy about the secret treasure.

    I also got the black slipper for $10!!

    Tomorrow morning I am off to a community tag sale.

    Phyllis,

    I missed it- it ended at 11:00 too early for me on a Saturday morning. It was being held at Patch Reef park here in Boca.

    Sure Lisa —

    Now you tell me. <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ />

    Can't imagine anything being over at 11AM. That's the time normal people start getting around on Saturday.

    If I hear of anything that sounds interesting I will notify you.

    I have always heard the “Early Bird Gets the Worm” but that is a little bit
    ridiculous.
    Anyway, I was on eBay this morning, what's new, right and there is a powder compact Volupte goldtone just like mine in the members photo gallery.
    It is the one with the rhinestone bar across the bottom and says in new good
    condition it then has the velvet carry bag.
    Just thought I would pass this information along, Oh by the way it is up in 2 hours.

    P.S. The number is 6521798952

    Hi everyone, just had to ressurect this topic because I finally found a bargain.

    We were in a local junk shop and Paul saw what looked like an old roll top bath – indeed it was. Not only a roll top, but in COPPER.

    We asked if they could dig it out for us to have a proper look and everything about it was right.

    We haggled of course and finally got the price to 170 euros.

    Then they told us of the Chateau it came out of!!!!!

    Yesterday we visited the Chateau (photos on the site), it is for sale too – around 600,000 euros.

    Then we searched the web for similar baths and couldn't believe the prices – approx 10,000 dollars – now how about that for a bargain.

    My very best buy was at an estate sale in river oaks. This was several years ago, but sitting in th e jewelry box without the black cord was this

    http://www.pixclix.com/trey/1982ivorycarver1.jpg

    I paid 50 cents for it, and no it is not for sale. Only the 2nd solid I have ever found at an estate sale.

    That is a great find Kasi! My recent find was the Blue Button mixed in
    with alot of old bits and pieces. Saturday there is a Jumble Sale
    over the road but I doubt I will find anything! Still, you never know!

    Happy Hunting…….

    COPPER !!??!! Now that alone would be worth it's wait in gold!! You lucky, lucky girl – It's good to buy off people who don't know what they're dealing with, isn't it?

    There are some good bargains to be had at charity stores sometimes. You have to look hard . . . . and have time.
