Often we get called to a home where the owner has passed and the kids are responsible for cleaning it out and selling it.  Rarely do they know what to toss and what has value  The old saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” is never so true.  9 times out of 10 by the time we get called, the family has already thrown away a dumpster full of stuff.

My point is that it’s ok to call us first before throwing anything away.  We are used to it and actually enjoy digging.  There are many stories of treasures that were thrown in the trash or donated to Goodwill that turned out to be worth thousands of dollars.

We were recently contacted by someone who found a box of old Boy Scout items in their apartment complex dumpster.  Someone just threw it away.  It turns out the Boy Scout items are very collectible and can be worth a decent amount of money.

The picture above is what we purchased.  God only knows what else was in that dumpster…
