Yesterday's Yard Sale $2 Find.

Yesterday I did my usual Saturday Yard Sale run about. I found a $2 L.L.Bean green canvas chair with case. I put the new-condition chair in my "Outhouse" Camo blind in my West Woods. In deer season, when I change position, I will carry the chair about. What is not to like?

Dan,

About four years ago I went to a yard sale nearby where a widow was selling a 2-car garage full of her deceased husband's tools and machines, saws, drill presses, etc. I saw a metal tray with handle about the size of a top tray from a large tool box with many Craftsman sockets 1/4, 1/2 and one inch size with drivers and rachets. The small sign said, "Assorted Old Tools $1.00." I asked the lady if that was per each and she said, "No, that is for the whole tray."

I handed over a dollar and went home. I counted 65 Craftsman sockets, 3 breaker bars and 3 rachets along with a half dozen cresent and box wrenches. Oh, and 5 screwdrivers, straight and Phillips.

Adam
