    I picked up a 42" solid oak dining table with two leaves and six chairs for $40. The top finish was damaged but that did not take long to refinish.

    Also found a plumbers schoensdet (sp) metal detector. A retiring plumber was selling it for $20. I checked the retail when I got home, $2200!

    Found this single curtain panel for $1.50 at Ocean State Job Lot. I like that it has tabs so I can thread it onto the awning poles. Now I just need to anchor to ground. If it is not too windy, it'll give me some added shade.

    Thanks for the list of items. I found this shower curtain at Target and I think it'll work great. It's a nice cotton fabric, but it wasn't $1.50 ($22).

    Garage/Rummage sale: Husqvarna 45 (made in Sweden)...they didn't know if it worked or how to start it. $5. Great chainsaw and only needed a new kill-switch! [:D] (Don't hate me! [}:)] )
