ding-wareYou could find yourself $2.2 million richer.  A family in New York just sold a bowl through auction at Sotheby’s for that amount.  They bought the bowl at a garage sale in 2007 for $3.  Yes, $3.    Turns out it was rare “Ding ware” from the Song Dynasty, approximately 1,000 years old.  So, keep your eyes open.
