    Notice my edit. Lose the S is pest and the second sentence took a dark turn.

    I know. I should've explained more thoroughly in the beginning, but I try to minimize how much I say on the 'net about other folk's lives.

    If you aren't circling like a buzzard and the butt crack of dawn, you're late.
    Best to set up a gang and swarm 'em!

    My wife paid $25 for a small table at a church garage sale.
    I dropped off some of her Mother's things, she wanted to sell.
    A customer of mine had a table next to my wife.
    He said "your wife sold many things but she sold them real cheap."
    She made $27 for a profit of $2 for the day. :-)
    I'm not a garage saler, either. I made an exception this time because it's my friend, and because I had plenty of time to look stuff over and pick out the good buys.

    I clarified that. See edit above.

    Nice. Great find, there.

    That's awesome. My FIL is big into.. let's say peSt eradication. He had a couple of interesting mounts that he'd collected over the years (including a gator head he bought at a flea market). His most interesting was an albino raccoon. He recently decided to offer them all to us, and my wife was dead set against. (this would likely go differently if it was my father).
    The point of this, he offered them to a nearby nature center who was happy to have them, particularly the raccoon, and he is very happy that they'll be out there on little school tours and such.

    I was told around here the flea market guys hit all the yard sales at daybreak and take stuff like you find back to resell. I've never seen any gun at a yardsale and the few bows I've seen were junk. You definitely got the best pickens.

    My biggest fear if I die, is all my trophy hunting and fishing mounts may go in the trash. I have to put them in my will. My non hunting nephew wants one of my deer heads. I will give him my big Saskatchewan ten point buck.
    He will sh:+. :-)

    I once got a Leatherman Micra and a Case yellow-handled, three-bladed folder, both new in the box, for $1.00 apiece.
