Once found a fifty dollar antique vase for fifty cents at a yard sale. That's a pretty good deal. And my daughter has boxes full of old encycipidias and informative books like that. She took it to her history teacher- whom she claims knows everything in the world- and it turns out that they could be worth a lot of money.

I had a friend who left for Canada as immigrant. At the time of departure, she told me that she has cleared all the materials except one almirah containing books and she told me I can take care of it. To my surprise, there were wonderful classic books, modern books, fiction etc. Even today I am preserving it after my reading, my son is reading it now. It was really a treasure.
