Getting more than you bargain for isn't always a good thing. Fortunately, that's not how it played out for one Texan. He made a worthwhile investment at a yard sale. There's something aesthetically pleasing about old furniture - the care it was made with, the stories it holds. But what about furniture that holds secrets? This man found an incredible score at a yard sale, but the secret it holds is worth even more, and no one could believe what the furniture was hiding.

Emil Knodell had no clue what he was in for when he went to a local estate sale. He is a collector and he enjoys going to these kinds of events. He made a habit of frequently visiting estate and yard sale, and he's found a number of beautiful vintage pieces because of it. On this day, in particular, Emil found a stunning piece at a yard sale. But he had no clue that there was more to the dresser than what he could see.

Estate sales can be a difficult thing. The public doesn't have a problem, but it can be hard for the family. Unfortunately, that was the case for this estate sale. The son of the deceased homeowner couldn't bring himself to attend the sale. He knew that his father's belongings needed to be sold, but he couldn't bear to watch. It would prove to be a huge mistake when Emil bought the dresser.

All of a sudden, Emil saw the item, a vintage wood dresser that had a marble top. Emil fell in love with it. He figured it would look perfect sitting in his dining room. He walked over to the dresser and knew that he wanted it. As he looked closer, he could see the details in the craftsmanship. Emil had to have it, but there was one problem with it.

As soon as Emil saw the dresser, he knew that he wanted to buy it. So he walked up to the estate staff and asked about the dresser. Once he was told how much it would cost, he couldn't believe it. They wanted over $300 for the dresser. Unfortunately, that was a little bit more than he could pay that day. Disappointed, Emil asked how long the sale would be going on for. Their answer was exactly what he wanted to hear.
