We’ve all heard the stories about someone finding a random item at a garage sale or in a thrift store that ends up being worth a fortune. You would think that’s the sort of thing that only happens in episodes of ‘American Pickers.’ Right? Well, apparently not.
On rare occasions, people can and do stumble upon loads of cash without realizing it. Just take this thrift store finds as an example. The people who bought them didn’t realize how much they were really worth until now…
1. NASA Spacesuits for 20 cents!
When students Skyer Ashworth and Talia Rappa were looking through some clothes at a thrift shop in Florida, they couldn’t help but notice six NASA spacesuits.
They bought the suits for a mere 20 cents each! And guess what? They discovered later that they were actually worth much more: $5,000 per suit! Why? Because they were original 1980s-era space suits!
