Some of Our Readers’ Finds – It’s Exciting


A few of our readers decided to send us a few pictures of their finds to share with you.

I’m so excited they did this to show you their success! The book’s information is paying off for them in this tough economy.

Our first user bought this pendant with 4 stones from a thrift store for fifty cents. I know by looking at that pendant that it would cost more than fifty cents in a store, especially since it is marked Sterling Silver on the back. Way to score a beautiful investment (I mean – piece of jewelry)! It would make a great present or possibly make some extra money. She didn’t tell me what she is doing with the pendant: a gift or making money. The pendant weighs 1.7 grams.

I’m EXCITED (yes, I’m shouting, because I’m excited) to report our next reader scored the following two items:

This 70% Silver spoon was purchased at a flea market for a dollar. He did the conversions and calculated the silver in it to equal 17.9 grams of fine silver. Keep in mind; this is not called sterling silver. Sterling silver is 92.5% silver in an item. The spoon is 70% silver, not 92.5%. The silver alone is worth $16.22. A profit of $15 bucks is a good profit on one item. It is an Awesome Find. I love finding silver ware. Remember, to keep your eyes open for other silver purity marks, not just sterling.

The next item is a sterling silver marked ring with a pearl. What a cute ring. Wouldn’t that make a great birthday present for one lucky lady? Or it could be resold for some cash? I would definitely not sell it as scrap. More money would be made from this item being sold as a wearable ring. He got this ring mixed in a bag of goodies for three bucks. That’s right, three bucks. Now, that’s an awesome score. The ring weighs in at 4.4 grams. I’m so happy knowing the information in my eBook is helping people Save and Make Money.

Find enough of these items at secondhand sales and they really start adding up to saving and/or making good money, even in this economic atmosphere. You could find the bling of your dreams, it’s out there, and people are buying it for cheap prices.

What have you found at secondhand sales? Please share your stories and pictures with us to inspire others and let them know they can do this too. It will save them some major money, since precious metal jewelry retails for high prices. They could even make money by reselling the items or scrapping it.

I want to take a moment and thank my readers for sending in these stories and pictures. They were hoping it would help others realize the treasure this eBook is.

I feel like such a proud Mom…my eBook is making a difference in some people’s lives. I hope you let it make a difference in yours.

Good Luck and Happy Hunting,
