Hmm, over the past *cough* years I've gotten a lot of useful stuff like cheap pots and pans, dishes sets, clothing, and other cool stuff. The things that stand out are:
3 men's full length leather jackets, $10 each, ebayed 2 for over $100 each, gave 1 to my father
a box of costume jewelry to wear (cause I like older costume stuff) for $3, found that about 50 percent was sterling with a solitary diamond post earring that came in at .5 carats
brand new lane Bryant clothes, tags still on, for between $1-$10 each
a solid wood farm table for $45 - I actually guarded that until my DF came back with the truck to pick it up - the sharks were circling!
Mostly I find really good deals on clothing. Plus size clothing is ridiculously expensive.
