Whats the best thing you ever picked up at a garage sale?I found A whole tackle box full of old reels that were like new and full of tackle for $8. I priced the reels on ebay and I the y are worth $150.

Also found some pallet forks for a tractor that are usally about $600 for $30 bucks but I didnt buy them since i didnt have a way to bring them home.

I bought a refridgerator that was in perfect condition off a guy for $50. His wife all of a sudden decided she didn't like the color.

My old man found 2 WW2 Kabars in pristine condition aside from some cracking on the leather.


Personally, I've never found jack.

Bought a box of old model chub creek fishing lures. All the lures were new and in the original boxes. I paid ten bucks for the lures. I ended up selling them on Egay for about 5 grand.

Best turn around for me was an aircraft altimeter. Bought it for $10, listed it on ebay that day & got $175 a week later.

Last fall while traveling the upper pennisula we stopped at a sale & I bought a dozen reloading die sets. Some were new....$30.

I buy pretty much all the brand name quality tools I find, often for 10 cents on a dollar.

For those of you who do not follow the survial forum, rummage sales are a great place to pick up second hand camping equipment. My BOB, an L.L.Bean backpack & top quaility was only $1.00. Coleman stoves & lanturns can be had for $5 to $10.

I bought a Mosin Nagant last weekend, paid $100 and thought it was too much.

Turns out (and I know nothing about these guns) that I wound up with some sort of Weird Finnish variant that's worth $300 and is the most accurate and one of the more desirable Nagants out there. Weird.
