A friend of mine bought me a fan at a garage sale for a $10 spot. I gave him $20. Sold it to a collector for $80 She sold it to another collector for $160. This guy sold it to a flea market vendor for $200... Some guy off the street bought it for $250... Poor ba**ard died... His widow didn't like the fan and sold it at her garage sale for $10. My friend gave her a $10 spot and sold it to me for $20..........................
