Sometimes you just get lucky; I once found a Scatalo del Tempo triple-watchwinder jewelry box in an antique store here in WA. I got it for $20 and sold it on Ebay for $3900 the following year.

I also bought a period book on Sudio 54 in a used book shop for $5 and sold it to an Ebayer in Austria for $200 - I guess some Europeans are really into the history of our debauched celebrities' lifestyles
