questionswhat really cool things have you found in a…


Yes, that is a collector's item. Whenever I clean out my closet, I seem to find something that I need or thought that I had lost.


Can't remember. I know it was cool though...All my stuff is cool. If you open my closets, they are packed to the point crap falls out, so I don't know what's in there. Found a Iowa wool "sweatshirt" from 1946 that was my dad's. He left school for the war and went back in '46. Have my mother's bathing suits from the early '50's when she worked at Cypress Gardens. Purple w/ sparkles and the other is red, white and blue plaid.


A ThighMaster. Suzanne Somers not included.


@belyndag: ::snickering:: Now wondering where my Thighmaster is. Know I have one. Somewhere. Less than taut thighs need this. ;-)


@gmwhit: Mine makes a really great paperweight.


@belyndag: A thought occurs: Woot re-branded merchandise.

The first product: @Thunderthighs Master

As for the OP: I just went through my closet and found my ridiculous, exorbitant collection of baseball cards and comic books from when I was a kid. I'm going to spend the summer sorting through everything and seeing if any of them are worth anything.


I recently came across an old ( 25+ Jelly Belly machine -- made out of glass NOT plastic. I think it even has some money in it : )

Will this go with all the Thigh masters mentioned ?

Other than that. There are things in there that haven't seen the light of day for a long time. They may even be morphing and coming alive, plotting against me for locking them up in there. I keep shutting the door and cramming it all back in and try very hard not to look.

@spellshock : great shirt find !!


Skeletons and a bottle of Clif Climber white from wine.woot.


A bunch of size 2 pants that fit fine 3 years ago, then discovered sea salt caramels. The pants will now not pass my shins.


Star Wars Ep 1, 2 and 3 action figures I bought in the from 1999 to 2004 - packed away in a rubbermaid box when we moved in 2005.

Flash forward 7 years later and my discovery saved me a load of $ this past Chistmas with our 7 year old son who was done with Galactic Heros. The box was burried under three Fraternity paddles, a unopened Voltron Lion Force and a black bridemaid's dress.

He's still opening them in May.
