Treasure of the week

This is Honey Bear, he is an old cast iron bank, isn't he just adorable!
He is the treasure of the week!
I came across him at Goodwill. As they brought a cart out full of stuff, I walked over and started scoping all the stuff out, I moved around some bags, and underneath all the bags was Honey Bear. The woman next to me said, "who would want that", "it's old". What's funny about this whole situation is, I wanted him, he was a treasure to be told, he was amazing, he was vintage, and not only was he cute, but I knew he was going to be worth something! My mum walked over, and I showed her Honey Bear. I knew that she would want him, I mean, we both love pretty much the same stuff. And that's who ended up buying him for only $5. But I found him, so that's why he is the treasure of the week!
Turns out, Honey Bear is worth some big bucks! When I looked him up, he was around $250- and up. Just check out here or here. Not like we would sell him, but at least we know, if we ever needed some money, he would be worth a lot. And as time goes on, maybe he will be even more! But for right now, I know he has a great home, with someone that will love him!

Honey Bear is an old cast iron bank was made by the Hubley Company in the 1930's!
