    I hate the days when I come home empty handed, but I always have something lying around I haven't posted. I know not everyday can yield the find of the century. Like the guy in Phoenix I was reading about today that found the rare 1959 Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Alarm watch for$ 5.99 at GW's. He then turned around and sold it to a San Francisco collector for $35,000.00. Plus he got a $4000.00 Omega Speedster to close the deal and the LeCoultre didn't even have a band !
    Oh well......now for my prize. I got these from my usual place, Salvation Army of course. Interesting jade green and caramel colored clamper bracelets. They seem to be older as the hinges are tarnished and the Hong Kong mark is barely legible. They are either lucite or some kind of plastic marbled to look like carved stone. They're in pretty good shape too the hinge springs are still nice and tight with no damage or chips. I've seen prices on etsy and rubylane ranging from 20 to 100 dollars so maybe not such a bad score after all. -Mike-

      Yes. but you still have to know what your looking at to be able take advantage of it, but seriously a 35K watch seems a bit much....lol.

      Mike, the story of $5.99 watch was crazy... I love those stories!!!
      These bracelets are great and pretty valuable too.

      Thanks DrFluffy :) ......hard to believe these pieces of plastic are valuable, but like I say I've seen crazy prices online . Maybe the color has something to do with it. A clear yellow one was selling for $95 on etsy !

      Here it is:

      but then there's this red one

      Come to think of it eye.... they did get the watch for nothing since it was donated . So they still made a $5.99 profit !
