|I read an article this morning about a 3,200 year old Chinese mummy that was found with pants on.|
Well, not just pants. It was a woman buried in a poncho, soft leather boots, a headband decorated with bronze discs and seashells, and the earliest known pair of jeans.
I’m a bit of a nerd and love reading about science and history.
Apparently, the stitching they used was the same stitching used to make today’s modern denim jeans!
This reminds me of a property that I had bought a few years ago.
When buying probate houses, you’ll often be left with a bunch of stuff that the family didn’t want.
It may be junk to the family selling the house, but this stuff is almost always someone else’s treasure. And that means it can be your payday.
The seller of this particular house left behind a huge pile of old Levi jeans. Just a bunch of old, useless clothes?
Nope, this was a pile of gold!
It turns out they were vintage Levis and were in high demand by the hipseter crowd who were willing to pay top dollar for these old pants.
You’ll find so many hidden treasures inside probate properties.
And sometimes outside like the time I sold an old, broken down Corvette for an easy seven grand cash!
