2. The Rummage Sale

As I make my way through the rummage sale, I’m on the lookout for anything that catches my eye. Last year, I found some amazing things, including Stephen King books that I sold for $75, a fish finder that I sold for $100, and some Star Wars toys that I found under a table. Unfortunately, this year’s rummage sale isn’t living up to my expectations. I’m not seeing much that interests me, but I’m still hopeful that I’ll find something valuable.

I come across a baseball card binder, but I’m not interested in baseball cards. I’m looking for something else. I spot an I Omega Zip drive system and pick it up. It’s worth picking up, but I’m not finding much else. I come across a bag of screws and bolts, a wallpaper steam remover, and some sealed Sony cassettes. I’m checking for video games and have to be thorough when I see the CD cases because I’ve opened them before and found video games worth hundreds of dollars.

3. Thrifting at Goodwill

After the rummage sale, I head to Goodwill to see if I can find anything else. I come across a crockpot thing that I know I can make money on. It’s only $6.99, and I’ve already sold one for $50 plus shipping. I also find a Hunter Hunter backpack that I can sell for around $30, and some Dr. Comfort shoes that I can sell for $35-$40.

4. Logitech Speaker System

The best find of the day is a Logitech speaker system that I find at the rummage sale. It’s complete and in good condition, and I’ve sold a couple of these this year for around $100. I paid $15 for it, but it’s worth it for the profit I’ll make.

5. I Omega Zip Drives

I also find an I Omega Zip drive system at the rummage sale for $2. These things have gone up in value over the years, and I’ve been selling them for a decade. This one isn’t the USB model, which does better, but I should be able to sell it for around $75.

6. Crockpot Thing

The crockpot thing I find at Goodwill is a great find. I paid $6.99 for it, but I should be able to sell it for around $50 plus shipping. These things sell well when they’re in good condition and complete with the inserts and lid.

7. Sealed Sony Audio Cassettes

I find some sealed Sony audio cassettes at the rummage sale for 50 cents. If I have the 120-minute ones, I can sell them on Amazon for around $80-$90. The 60-minute ones sell for around $30-$35.

8. Old Photo Album

I come across an old photo album at the rummage sale for a quarter. It’s got a Victorian look to it, and it could be from the late 1800s or early 1900s. I couldn’t find this exact one, but similar ones sell for around $25-$50.

9. Golf Balls

I pick up some Red Sox and Rams golf balls at Goodwill for $5. They’re new in the package, and I should be able to sell them for around $20.

10. Sleuth Game

I find a Sleuth game at the rummage sale for 50 cents. It’s one of these 3M game sets, and some of these can be pretty good, especially when they’re in good condition and complete with all the pieces.

11. Balderdash Game

I also find a Balderdash game at the rummage sale for a dollar. It’s brand new and sealed, and I should be able to make around $12 profit selling it on Amazon.

12. Hunter Hunter Backpack

The Hunter Hunter backpack I find at Goodwill is in good condition, and I can sell it for around $30. It’s a popular anime, and I know there are fans out there who would love to have this backpack.

13. Solomon Shoes

I find a pair of Solomon shoes at Goodwill for $5. They’re in great condition, and I should be able to sell them for around $60. Solomon shoes are popular, and I know there are people out there who would love to have these shoes.

14. Dr. Comfort Shoes

I also find a pair of Dr. Comfort shoes at Goodwill for $5. They’re in great condition, and I should be able to sell them for around $35-$40. Dr. Comfort shoes are popular with people who need comfortable shoes for their feet.
