Have you ever sold something that ended up in a movie or a television show?
Here's one person's experience with that:

Back about 13 years ago, I was in an antique store and found a small box that
contained several small sealed vials of "double distilled" water. What
intrigued me was that the vials were not sealed with a top or cork - they were
encased in an all glass ampules. I bought it and put it up for auction. When
it sold, the buyer told me he was purchasing props to use in an episode of the
show "Carnivale", a (then) new HBO series. Unfortunately, I didn't have HBO at
the time, so I never got to see them used. Sarah F.
