The seller's social party was still going full-tilt, so I waited patiently as she concluded one of her many conversations with a neighbor. Finally seeing my opening, I pointed to the Tupperware up and asked how much? Miss Block Party seemed to care less, telling me she'd take five dollars for the container. Five bucks? The Tupperware container alone was worth 2-3 times that! I didn't even bother negotiating. I quickly handed over a five spot and headed back to the peace and quiet of my truck.
Since my winter inventory was running low, the Lego space shuttle went on eBay almost immediately. The auction proved once again that almost any Lego set will do gangbusters on eBay. The Lego space shuttle went into orbit, selling for $61 dollars! Loud seller or not, making over fifty bucks on a quick sale was an excellent start to the garage sale season!
