Garage sales are the best!
A few years back I got a beautiful wrought-iron stand with a 10-gallon tank for $10.....Looked stunning with all my flashy fishies in it.
Another time I got a really cute white cage for my budgies. And this summer I was at a flea market and I got a GORGEOUS tall onion-top cage for the budgies, it's huge and they love it!
Also, what did I get? Oh, I got a really crappy English saddle for $25, cleaned it up, found out it is worth roughly $700 brand new, and sold it for $200.....oh, the wonders you'll find at cheap sales xD
At an auction I got a beautiful typewriter form 1929 for $1, and sold it for $30.
You people should really take advantage of these things xD
I included a little picture of the budgie cage ^_^
