There are 2 types of people — some prefer buying only brand-new things, and others are okay with going to flea markets and thrift stores. And the latter are often lucky enough to find treasure in piles of ordinary stuff. And the things people from our compilation found prove our point.

“Bought a turtle-shaped brooch for $30 at the flea market. Turns out that the metal part is 585 gold, and the gem is a smokey topaz.”

“Pierre Soulages Lithograph, paid $45, estimated at $5-$6k, but one just like it sold last year for $16,200!”
