Not long ago i went to the opp shop and did the bag sale thing. I kept it quiet, but in an old pair of jeans I found real money-enough to get groceries for a week. You just never know!!!!

Two years ago I bought a dresser at the Salvation Army in Alexandria. When I got it down to Colonial Beach and took the drawers out so I could more easily move it, I found a live check for over $8,200. It took me two days, but I was able to track down the rightful owner of the money. Boy, was he surprised!

You guys stop giving away trade secrets. There won't be a chest of drawers or a pair of drawers left in the town if you keep this up! Seriously, I guess the folks that run the opp shop will now go through every pair of pants and look in every drawer and coffee pot that comes into the shop. I once found a single 18 caret cuff link in a coffee grinder. It was worth over $100 back 20 years ago. Still, you never know. PS-Clueless, did the owner of the check give you a reward? Just wondering?

No reward given. But then again isn't honesty its' own reward?

Op Shop did away with the $5.00 per bag sale -- now they give the clothes away FREE twice a year. What a deal!
