$3 Find Turns Into $190,000

March 12th, 2012

I have always loved antiques or anything with a bit of age. It all
began the first time that I went to an auction with my dad. He 
showed me how to bid and feel the excitement on “winning”
my first piece at an auction.  I have been hooked ever since.

I have antiques and old pieces throughout my home and encourage
my customers to do the same.  It just adds to the unique personality of
your surroundings.

The painting pictured above is the reason I keep going to auctions,flea markets and estate sales….

It was purchased for $3 from a Goodwill store. It later sold for $190,000 at auction. Turns out it’s a Flemish piece from around 1650. Can you say…
“Good Eye!”

Those things still happen and one day maybe it will happen to me.  For now,

I’ll just keep coming home with “my treasures”.
