From Yard Sale to eBay $$

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite yard sale finds from a few years ago. I found these vintage, 3D plaster plaques in the basement of a moving/yard sale. It was the second day so they were half price. I paid a whopping $1 for them. They are meant to be hung on the wall, staggered, with a straw connecting the two . I put them on eBay for $9.99 and the bids went to over $57. A soda-pop memorabilia collector from Ohio bought it and he was thrilled when he received them. It was so exciting to watch the bids jump in the final minutes of eBay. The colors don't show up well in this picture. The frames were an aged-crackled cobalt blue. This picture was taken from a camcorder, before my digital camera days.
