    I don't get it, why would someone pay millions for paintings by Pollock when they look like something a kid did, I made those kind of paintings or similar ones when i was 7 years old...

    Why would ypu buy something valuable for $14,000 dollars, then plan to melt it down and sell it for $500 for some "quick cash"? Did i miss something?

    Everybody must know by now that owners of thrift stores, as well as people selling stuff at garage sales will indeed get the stuff appraised first.

    I bought a pair of unused shoes from a thrift store, not my size but knew they were expensive. The lady at the thrift store said a lady had just brought in clothes and shoes from her husband that she was divorcing. Donated everything. I paid $6. The shoes were Salvatore Ferragamo, driving shoes worth over $1,000 new, I sold them for $200. Not bad.
    Excuse me... I’m headed to a thrift store after I go to a yard sale. Might go fishing later.

    For American information: The British "pound" sign goes before the number the same way as the dollar sign does. The sign is based on an L from Roman Libra being a pound.

    I go to the thrift shops every other week, and usually find art for dirt cheap. The odd time I find ones with signatures, and sell for a couple hundred. The other day, I picked up a small picture for 99 cents, and its an original with signature worth around $4-500.
    Its amazing what people donate, and don't know the value of.

    Hey, for those at "Top Trending", you need to do an edit at 4:26. You have "£" the symbol for the British monetary denomination of pounds. That should be either "lbs." or "#" those indicating weight.

    Ansel Adams' prints are valuable because they are made by the artist. Prints made by someone else from his negatives will never come close to the same value. Making the negative and making the print are two vital parts of the process and nobody could know how to print the negatives properly except for Ansel

    Wait a sec, a guy spends $14,000 for a gold egg and
    hopes to make $500 off it? How crazy is that? It
    always amazes me that some people have that kind
    of money top spend. Why not donate the money to charity
    instead and take a tax write off.

    My grandma brought this one shelf from a thrift store and as I said hey Grandma look at the Shelf because I've never saw anyone like it and the woman at the counter told me that it was handmade and they decided to let her sell it at the store I so I got it for about 5 bucks probably it wasn't that bad for it now again I know it's probably not valuable it's probably not worth anything but I heard that it was handmade like a long long time ago like a couple of the long years ago and it always stuck with me like could this ever be valuable I still have the Shelf today but I don't know if it would ever even be valuable

    The £ (Pounds) symbol goes at the front of the figure and it isn’t used to denote the weight of the same name, the abbreviation for that is Lbs. The name of the auction house is pronounced “Suth A bees” not sothebees.

    Right off the bat, a mistake in the first story about the necklace -- you say the woman was pursuing a flea market. What does that even mean? Can the person narrating read? The word is PERUSING. She was perusing the flea market.

    Yet more ignorance. There's no such thing as "numismastics". It's "numismatics".

  • Topher TheTenth
    Topher TheTenth Month ago

    Now you KNOW this is one of the most ignorant videos on TVclip. If these are the greatest finds, that pearl cannot have a value of 75 Pounds Sterling British Currency. It must have a WEIGHT of 75 pounds, you blithering sucktard. But they didn't put a symbol for the weight on the screen. They put the scripty "L" for British currency. That's disgraceful! Someone needs to be horsewhipped in Times Square.

  • Topher TheTenth
    Topher TheTenth Month ago

    The Pollock is real. A long time ago I looked into all the arguments against it and they're all bogus. Mostly based on Personal Authoritarianism, the idea that if an "expert" says the sky is orange then it really is orange because the expert can be wrong because he's an expert. But I would rather take the $9 million with no warranty as to authentication, and be able to keep that $9 million hell or high water, than take $100 million for which I could be sued if it was contingent on it being a real Pollock and it isn't. I mean, I know it is, 999/1000, but I would never risk even that 1/1000. Sell it "as is" and if by some MIRACLE it COULD turn out to be fake it's not her problem because at $9 million she's not going to say it ISN'T fake.

    This isn't all adding up. Russia didn't have a Royal Family. They had an Imperial Family. And no other sources say the egg is back with the Imperial relatives who survived the Revolution. They say the eggs is now in a private collection.

    I found an absolutely stunning coffee service set from Salvation Army; bought it for $10. It didn’t have a tag on it, very unusual for Salvation Army, but none the less I offered $10 for it and the guy said ok 😂 I knew it was worth more but I didn’t know how much more or what make it was until I got it to my car and turned it over. Turned out to be a Winterling set, fine bone China, hand maid in Bavaria, and the gold on it was real gold, all hand painted, and it was from the 1950’s. IN PERFECT CONDITION, LOOKS LIKE IT WAS NEVER USED. It’s really a beautiful set. So anyway, I paid $10 for it...found out it’s worth at least $450. Not that I’m going to sell it, but it was a great find 👍Also I don’t use it for coffee, it’s just displayed in my china cabinet in my dining room😂You just never know what you’ll find in a thrift store, which is why they’re so great!

    I’m sure my comment AND reasons will sound silly in comparison to what I just read over here, but I only step in thrift stores if there’s an old wedding dress in their window so I could look at the other side of the fabric, admire the hand bead work and wonder how long it took to complete and what it meant to the woman who wore it...and question why anyone with a piece of family history like that donate it to a thrift store to be sold for less than $20 ?!
    BUT, whenever I’m there I always buy a small item no more than $10 worth (not clothing or shoes or fabric of any type /it’s gross) as my way of donating the money to whatever cause the thrift store supports. And over the last 10 years (I’m 33) I accidentally found some very unique items I didn’t know its value or significance, such as an English book published in 1550 (I bought in Romania), a clay candle holder dated back over 2000 years to Christ’s time (I bought in Jordan), a first edition of a French book published in 1810 and signed by its author (I bought in Sweden), a brand new purse with the inside zipper handle still wrapped in its original tissue paper made by a designer/painter who made a handful of purses only between 1920 to 1923 (I bought in Ukraine), a hand carved silver bead by a famous Swiss sculptor dated early 1900 (I bought in Israel), an Irish flute /called a whistle- that’s 300 to 400 years old (I bought in Germany), 8 Roman glass beads on a leather string dated to over 1000 BC/ before Christ (I bought in Turkey), 3 gold coins dated 1818 hidden in a black & white picture frame (I bought in Italy because I thought the woman’s hair style looked like Marge Simpsons!).
    I had all items authenticated and stubbornly refused to sell any of them despite of their crazy $ value...aaaaaand now they’re all sitting in a box at the bottom of my closet and no one before now knows anything about them. Now, I’m guessing I’m some type of a hoarder...but the honest truth, as wired as this may sound, I think it’s because I developed some weird attachment to each item because I know they meant something significant each in their own way, to someone, somewhere, at some point in time...and I believe things like that are not for sale...NOT by me at least....
