|Out in the trash...what?!|
My next trash pick did me one better. A week after the Schwinn sale, on that very same road, I found a big wood dollhouse at the curb. The dollhouse was in nice shape and was the type usually sold at those big box craft stores. As I stopped to pick it up, I wondered what the deal was with people living on this street? It was like I'd struck gold with a a new source of free inventory in one location! While wrestling the big dollhouse into the back of my truck bed, I noticed two grocery bags sliding around inside of it. Surprise bonus! I couldn’t wait to get home and check out what they could be? Once back at my house, I found out. One bag contained a huge lot of doll house furniture, while the other contained a lighting kit for illuminating the dollhouse. To my amazement, a price sticker was still on the box...$79.95! I was so excited about this triple threat find that I Tweeted about it right away, posting a picture of the dollhouse with the comment’ “People are crazy!” Seriously, who puts a perfectly good dollhouse out to the trash? While I couldn’t explain it, I was glad they did!
I went right to work posting my dollhouse trash finds in three separate listings. Beginning with the dollhouse, which I posted it on Craigslist for $25 bucks. It sold right away. While I could have asked for more, I kept the price low in order to move the big monstrosity out of the garage as quickly as possible. I then listed both the dollhouse lighting kit and the dollhouse furniture in two separate eBay auctions. Each sold for $35 dollars. So in total, my dollhouse trash find netted me just shy of $100 big ones. Like I said, people are crazy. To me, the previous owner of the dollhouse basically threw a 100 dollar bill out to the curb!
