2 Dollar Bargain

   Posted by: John    in Bargains

Boise has a weekly auction house downtown, Main Auction.  Karen and Mary went down there last weekend and came home with some stuff for not a lot of money.  One thing Karen got was some baskets…Longaberger baskets.  I know, I hadn’t heard of them before either.  She paid $2 for all of these.  Some of them are on eBay for up to $175.  Each.  Whoduthunk that baskets could be so expensive.

Medium Purse

Another Basket

Yet Another Basket

Apparently, the ones that have the cloth liners and plastic inserts are worth a lot of money.  Several of these have them, and all of these are in near perfect shape.  Assuming the average cost of these new was $100 each (and I am sure some were more), I don’t think $2 was too much to give for them.
