A Michigan woman accidentally sold a DVD with $1,200 tucked inside the case at her garage sale — for only $10.
Tracy Holmes of Belleville, Mich., thought she was clearing away clutter and making a few bucks doing it when she sold three DVDs for $10, according to The Ann Arbor News.
But when her husband Fred asked her later where the "Sin City" DVD was — he'd secretly been stashing money he was saving in the movie jacket to the tune of at least $1,200 — Holmes' stomach dropped. She realized the buyer had hit the jackpot.
The money had been for a Christmas trip to Disney World with their three children, ages 11, 7 and 2.
"He thought, apparently, (the DVD case) was a great spot to hide it from me, and it was," Holmes told the paper. "I didn't think to look there."
She's hoping that getting the word out will inspire the DVD buyer, whom she described as a 6-foot-tall man in his 50s or 60s, to return the money.
