12. Fishing equipment
Fishing lures are actually very easy to find at garage sales. This happens a lot when someone’s husband has passed away, and the widow is just clearing out his belongings. Believe it or not, vintage fishing gear is highly collectible, and can be worth a ton of money. Some vintage lures are even worth thousands of dollars apiece.
With that being said, the vast majority of vintage fishing lures you see on eBay are selling for only $5 and up. But if you can find a big collection at a yard sale, it still might be worth buying in order to take home and do some research on each piece. Worst case scenario, you can resell an entire lot of fishing lures for around $100.
