He struck it "rich" at thrift shop!

Remember the recent complaining here about no bargains* to be had at thrift shops!

Bargain shopper finds real Picasso on thrift-store shelf
http://now.msn.com/money/0329-thrift-store-picasso.aspx

Zach Bodish, a thrift store regular, paid $14.14 for a framed Picasso "poster" at the Clintonville, Ohio, Volunteers of America outlet. But after some online research, he learned that the red signature in the corner had probably come from the artist's own pen and that it might be worth $6,000 -- or about 428 more thrift-store shopping sprees. Ohio State art professor Lisa Florman examined it, declares it is not a poster but a signed print and said Picasso created it for a 1958 exhibition of his ceramic works. Bodish is already debating what to do with his bargain-priced Picasso. "There's a good chance I'll probably sell it," he told the Columbus Dispatch. "I want to keep it, but money is tight."

(Now only it were a Rene Herse for $14.41!)
