“I went with my sister and neieces lol she hooked (to thrifting) now as well ,I must tell u this story she came down to visit and I took her thrifting right, well we bought watches out of a bin for 99 cents that were not working; they needed batteries. Well she picked up a cute little danity, silver and gold one and said, ‘You like this one?’ I said, ‘Awww so cute its perfect for you!’ (she’s petite). So anyway she bought it and then when she went home took it to have battery put in and the man said ‘I’ll buy this watch from you for 750.00’. She said red flag went up she replied ‘Ummm… no’. So she went and researched the numbers on watch, and we found out that watch is worth 1500.00! SCORE!!! She says ‘I’ve always wanted an expensive watch!!!” -Tanya Keller Shaw
