Default Woman spends $2, finds $3000

Yahoo News:

Linda Stafford has been going to garage sales for 30 years, and taking good-natured ribbing from her family all the while.

Now, the tables have turned.

Stafford has found more than $3,000 in bills dating from 1928 to 1953 in the bottom of a high-backed chair she bought at a garage sale — for two bucks.

"When we found the money, they could probably hear us screaming all over the neighborhood," said Stafford, 57.

She made the discovery while trying to make room in her garage for more furniture. When one of her daughters, Mandy Rath, heard something rattle in the chair, they removed the bottom. Placed inside a compartment were two paper packets, one with $10 in coins, the other with $3,060 in bills.

Stafford remembers what she paid for the chair, but not where she bought it.

"I know that I've had it out in our garage for at least a year, maybe two," she said.

But, Stafford was not sure how she would spend the money.

"Who knows?" she said. "I might spend it all at garage sales."

I go to garage sales - mostly to laugh at what other people think they can sell.

I go to garage sales often. The key is to go to a rich person's garage sale, then you know you will at least be buying some higher quality stuff at cheap prices.

I do garage sales like once a year. Actually I'm working on one this weekend. People love to go for the clothes. Since my wife has a whole fucking closet for HER stuff only

That sounds just like my grandmother. She goes daily. I do go very often. Once in a while I will.

A big Swedish furniture chain that is pretty cheap. I don't think there is any in my country but there's a few in England and some people take their whole family down over a weekend to buy tons of cheap Swedish furniture.
