A valuable piece of art was almost lost, until a thrift shop volunteer with a sharp eye noticed it, and brought it to the Seaside Art Gallery in Nags Head, NC, for evaluation. The artwork turned out to be one of a series of wood engraving by Salvador Dali illustrating  The Divine Comedy. Dali is best known for his painting, “The Persistence of Memory.” The wood engraving has been purchased by a Virginia couple, but is currently still on display at the Nags Head gallery.

Regardless of the monetary value, it is fun and magical to find something mysteriously valuable in a thrift shop, and this is a great story of visual treasure hunting by the gal who "discovered" it - I'd love to find something in a thrift shop for a couple of bucks that I could sell for $500 ;-).

It is both fun and educational to continuously look for such things.

Speaking of Dali, a homeless guy here in Santa Fe about ten years ago paid $5 for a framed art piece, which turned out to be an original Dali ink drawing, which he sold for $120,000, bought a trailer, put it on family land near Chicago, and lived happily ever after.
