    Scored a fiberoptic "tacky lamp" for free off a local freecycle list :)

    Was at an auto swap meet a couple months ago. Bought 3 Coleman lanterns and 2 Coleman stoves. The stoves were the older style with the round tanks. Grand total......... $20! I oiled the leather pump cups and all of them work great! Best $20 I've ever spent!

    I live in an expensive area, and people throw out the craziest things on the night before trash pick-up. There are Thrift Shops all over, but they still put very good things on the curb. There are certain areas I try to check each week.

    I also watch for houses that have sold - the Sellers put out lots of great things.

    Spring "nights before" are also great.

    The fun part - you can't make too big a mistake - and the prices.

    I don't need much, but I take anything that has value, and I'll find a taker for it within a few days. Once in a while, there's something great for me.

    I scored this 1956 Craftsman Wet Grinder for $10 all original, maybe even the drive belt.
    It works great! Runs smooth and sharpens and shapes easily.
