estate sale score


one of the best estate sale scores we ever had was a vintage 60s ed roth rat fink halloween costume. believe it or not, the estate sale was in the living quarters above a funeral home. when we went to pay for the item, someone running the sale asked, “oh, you’re getting that old mouse costume?!”


another lady said, “that was my old costume! i was the rat fink!” it was neat to have the chance to meet its original owner. i always like to know the history of the old junk i collect.

we paid $10 for it. needless to say, if we were to sell it we could get much more than ten dollars for it, but it will stay in our permanent collection.
