Yard sale aficianado Aaron LaPedis is sharing his top five finds and tips for snagging a great collectible in a new article on TheStreet.
These purchases aren’t like my top 5 (which would probably include my $5 octagonal end tables and $2 lamps) – they’re serious collectibles which could yield big profits, if he would be willing to part with them.
For example, LaPedis a Yellow Submarine lunchbox with an intact thermos. Finding a thermos to go with the lunchbox set is key, LaPedis said, because all too often, the set gets separated, lowering its value.
LaPedis said he paid $30 for the lunchbox, which is s neat piece and brings back some great memories.
On Ebay, the set is selling for anywhere between $600 and $1,200, he said.
Makes me want to run out to the nearest yard sale and start digging.
