  1. Was watching an old episode of Thrift Hunters on TV the other day and saw the guy pick up a RAD movie jacket. The show is basically two guys going around to Thrift Stores looking for treasures to sell on eBay. They weaseled their way to a warehouse owned by a small store and dug out a bunch of stuff, including this jacket. They both bought a pile of clothes for $10 each....then ran home and listed the jacket on the bay for $1000. He ended up haggling with a buyer and gettling $700. I have my thoughts....but let me know yours.
