Buying vintage and antiques from thrift stores and flea markets is a great hobby of mine. I enjoy the mystery of not knowing what I might uncover.
Of course, the objective is to discover something truly exceptional and potentially priceless, which can still be purchased for pennies on the dollar. If you’re lucky, you’ll locate some amazing deals and end up with a profit.
Yet few people are as fortunate as Randy Guijarro.
Randy spent two dollars at a garage sale on an antique photo album full of black and white snapshots of family and friends. Despite his lack of confidence in their monetary value, he picked them up because of their interesting appearance.
After returning home, he sorted through them and found that the majority of the photos were useless. But then he saw that one of the photographs included a someone he recognized.
Billy the Kid was one of the most infamous outlaws of the Wild West. Billy the Kid, or William H. Bonney, his legal name, was killed by a bullet when he was only 23 years old in 1881.
Uncovering an image of him is extremely unusual, making any picture of him priceless. Randy’s two dollars well spent on the picture that become a priceless classic. He made a stunning $5 million on the sale of the shot.
What a fantastic bargain at the thrift store or antique mall!
