In August 2017 two students were digging around in a thrift store when they stumbled upon a bunch of rare historical artifacts. And after they snapped them up for a mere $1.20, they now look set to reap astronomical profits. In fact, their discovery was pretty much out of this world.
Talia Rappa and Skyer Ashworth, bought the items at a closing-down sale of a Salvation Army store in Titusville, Florida. Both students are enrolled at Florida colleges, and the lucky find will help pay for part of their tuition fees.
What’s more, the items the pair purchased are so valuable that a prestigious museum has offered to auction them. And they could fetch as much as $20,000. Indeed, Ashworth and Rappa seem to have stumbled on the thrift find of a lifetime.
