I only went to one garage sale this weekend. And I only spent $1.75, which is good because I am going to be laying out alot of money for a local on-line auction next week I spent 75 cents on the gold metal corner shelf, and $1 on a set of gold Fire-King mugs. The mugs are not my usual type of purchase, but I loved the gold color (my current favorite color.)
I had some memory of researching Fire-King Mugs before, and knew that these were good sellers. I think I could get an easy $4 each for them on ebay, especially in their minty condition. Their pattern is called "Kimberly".
Other desirable Fire-King mugs that I found on ebay: the jadeite restaurantware (set of 8 sold for $600), Snoopy (one sold for $500) or other vintage cartoon mugs (six Warner bros cartoon mugs sold for $300), First Man On The Moon (one sold for $450). So don't overlook that big box of mugs at the next garage sale, there could be one in there worth hundreds of dollars!
