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.

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.

Probably not. She listed one of them that she decided she didn’t want to keep, and we will just have to see how much it goes for.
