Garage Sale Painting valued at $100,000

Stick this in to the most embrassing sales column. Somebody sold the painting of Lake Okanagan by E.J. Hughes for $200 dollars. It is expected to get over $100,000 dollars in auction.
Paul Martin has been searching flea markets, thrift stores and garage sales for awhile looking for art and antiques for his southern Ontario home. He had no idea of the value of his $200.00 purchase. He then began to research the artist Hughes and decided to contact Heffel Fine Auction House to arrange for the sale of the painting.
He plans to pay down his mortgage with profits of the auction.
