    Stuff like that happens from time to time...

    When I was in High School a friend of mine's mother went to a garage sale and bought what she was told was a 'child's toy Saxophone' for $ 10.

    Of course she knew better...it was an older silver plated Conn Wonder curved Soprano. That's right...10 bucks !!!

    Then there was the time that I bought a Tarogato (a wooden Hungarian folk kind of wind instrument) for $ 10 also. I have seen them advertised for sale in the 2 and 3 thousand dollar range. That's right...10 bucks !!! (I still have it)

    Then there was the time that I bought a silver plated Martin Bass Sax for $ 250. That's right...$ 250 !!! (Sadly, I DON'T have it anymore - don't ask what I sold it for...)

    Then there was the time that I bought a 1963 Mark VI Alto for $ 150. That's right...$ 150 !!! (I still have it - it's my main axe)

    Then there was the time that a friend of mine bought a pair of SBA's (an Alto and a Tenor) at an antique store somewhere in Pennsylvania for $ 400. That's right...$ 400 for the pair !!! (she still has them both)

    Keep watching and waiting...things come up for sale.

    A friend of mine was given a vintage Gibson Jazz Hollowbody guitar once. Its all random when stuff will happen, and it always seems like it happens to everyone but us.
