Last weekend, at a thrift store, I found an item that was marked for $5. I was familiar with what the item was, and that it was worth well above the asking price. I bought it as a matter of investment.
A quick search showed this item selling for anywhere from $40 and more.
My plan was to list this item and make a small profit.
I realized that the young couple who live above us might have use of it,
I showed it and seeing their excitement in the possibility of it being theirs, I gave it to them.
It was some of the best negative profit I have earned in a long time.
