AIR CREW HEAVY JACKET BLUE HOODED VINTAGE 1950s Korea TYPE N-3A MIL-J-6279 Sz M
Another fantastic sale! I bought this jacket at the SA thrift on the same day that I bought the Eva Rosenstand cross stitch kits. Those six kits sold for almost $630!! Read my post about the kits here.
On this particular day, SA was having a $2 sale on ALL their clothing. I headed straight to the coats and jackets and filled my cart. This was one of the jackets – and I almost didn’t get it. The cashier questioned whether it was part of the $2 sale since it was heavy and obviously a “quality” jacket. After a small discussion with her supervisor, the cashier rung it up, and I got to bring it home for $2.
Once home, I realized it was an air crew military jacket. I found an online site about military jackets and learned this jacket was from the 1950s Korean War. I also found an old auction for the exact same jacket that sold in 2008 for $145. Score!
I started the listing at $99.00 and it ended this past Monday. So, how much did the jacket sell for? Drum roll, please …. a whopping $383.00! Can you say ‘ka-ching’! The buyer paid immediately and it’s already on its way. Click here to see the closed listing.
This particular visit to the SA turned out to be a goldmine. I spent just over $100, and so far, have grossed almost $1250.00 in sales. Now, that’s CASH FOR TRASH!
Casio FX-98 Solar Cell Scientific Calculator 42 Functions Vintage 1984 Rare
Last week I mentioned that I bought two of these vintage Casio FX-98 calculators at an estate sale for about $1.00 each. Turns out only one worked, so I listed that one with a starting price of $45.00. As of right now, it’s up to $61.00 with 14 watchers. Click here to see my listing, which ends Sunday evening.
But check out this closed listing for the exact same calculator that sold for $485 in March! That seller was able to guarantee the calculator worked. I, however, have no clue how to operate this little treasure. I did a few basic calculations and it works just fine, so I assume the scientific buttons work properly. We’ll see for how much it sells. Heck, I’m already $60 ahead!
Believe in yourself and prosper! Happy saling and selling!
