We recently rescued an "ugly funny metal thing"   from our client's trash pile and offered to sell it online for her. She was thrilled when it  brought in $150.00

We offered a couple of paintings online for a client who earlier  had a professional art appraiser tell  him they were worthless. The first painting brought in $360, and the second one brought in $1250!  Not bad for a couple of "worthless" paintings, Woo Hoo!
