OKLAHOMA CITY - You've probably heard the saying that something is worth whatever someone will pay for it.

An original cast iron toy from the 1930s was purchased for $8 but is actually worth $45 to $55.

A set of pottery is worth $125 as a pair.

An Olympic flag that was used in front of the delegates in California before the 1936 games are very unique. However, it is likely something that a specific collector would want.

It could be worth $250 to $300 if you find that specific collector.

Also, rosewood carvings are becoming popular in other markets. In Oklahoma, you may be able to get $400 to $700 for it. However, if you went out of state, you could make $800 to $1,200.

Check if you have any treasures around your house that could be worth money!
