Fun Garage Sale find!
So...recently I went junkin at garage sales with my good friend, Deb. We stumbled upon this sale with a bucket full of these really old parade flags. We had no idea they were worth anything, but we loved how they looked. We bought the whole lot. Well, turns out, we hit a jackpot of junking, because we spent 25 cents per flag and sold them to one of the nations foremost American flag dealer for 3300 dollars! Way cool, huh? Turns out several were quite rare civil war era hand waving flags. Here's a photo of one of the flags. I'll be keeping myt eyes open for old flags!
