25 Cent Coffee Mug Sells for $104 on eBay
I'll admit, I don't have the mug selling gene. I have tried over the years and mugs are not a niche I can get excited about. But I do get excited when I see other selles share their coffee mug scores. Buddy Huddleston, a member of my Facebook group posted this sale on our Money Making Mondays thread back in May.
He bought the mug for 25 cents at a thrift store because, "I knew it had some value based on the manufacturer, year, and character." It is a Fire King mug, and these are easily identified by the milky white glass material they are made of. The mug sold for $104.49 on auction with a starting price of 99 cents and 21 bids.
Congratulations, Buddy! Nice sale, and thanks for sharing!
