Old Things In Your House That Are Actually Worth A Fortune
Sure this was just a fun decoration that you picked up to furnish your first college apartment, but the one-of-a-kind sarcophagus is worth . . .

The Coffin Of Pa-Di-Tu-Amun, Egypt (945-889 B.C.)

512

Sure this was just a fun decoration that you picked up to furnish your first college apartment, but the one-of-a-kind sarcophagus is worth $3.25 million.

Princess Diana Beanie Baby

512

This extremely rare toy has only appreciated in value since its release in 1997, now said to be worth over $14.

A Piece Of The True Cross

512

While subsequent versions flooded the marketplace and reduced resale value, you can still get a decent price for a sizable chunk of the original wood that Christ was crucified on.

A Piece Of The True Cross

Recently lumber's become very expensive. So if someone want's to market pieces of the Original True Cross, my advice would be to make them out of plastic-- much, much cheaper to manufacture, and I believe Benjamim Moore now has a paint colour called "Old Cross #369")

[Just kidding about that paint :-)]

I have a one of a kind and it's really really old, ''Pet Rock'' in the original box and the straw bed. 

Since they are so few of and being really rare it could be worth trillions.

Actually for years there have been articles, off and on, about things people may have had for years that now do have greatly increased value.

(And other articles that list things that actually do have value-- and then others which don't).

But it seems that recently I keep getting ad spam on my phone re: these sorts of articles...

I do remember what a YUGE fad collecting Beanie Babies was at one time. And interestingly, apparently the company deliberately limited the number of certain models they produced-- thus guaranteeing scarcity of certain types and making them worth a lot-- but others..not so much!

Well-- at least its probably worth Billions!

In fact, possible even Billions...and Billions...and even more Billions!

Although we had quite a few old things, including genuine antiques, in our home that we had picked up here and there at reasonable prices, nothing was eventually worth a fortune.  What I used to enjoy doing on weekends was going to garage sales and church sales and picking up tarnished old hallmarked silver and china that people had no idea of their value, polish them up and sell them for a good profit on eBay.  My accurate descriptions and photos vaulted me to the highest category of trustworthyness on that site so I never had any trouble selling anything.  I also collected antique stringed musical instruments and vintage cameras, but those I kept for myself.
