I always wondered if anyone ever bought sod at a yard sale. Anyway, yesterday I passed by a yard sale. I'm an addict, and just had to stop and look around. Found two vises, both were marked $5 each. I got them both for $4 each. The one below needs some cleaning. The other vise is a screw on machinists type.

Nice find cabby.
I'm also addicted to garage sales. I'm going to an auction on Sunday. There auctioning off woodworking tools. Ill let you know if I find anything worth a gloat.

Great find!

I'm a bit discouraged by garage sales in my area.

For some odd reason most of them start on Friday morning.

I saw a new sign for an estate sale on my way home from work today but they had shut down at 3:00.

By the time I get to poke around in these sales all the good stuff is gone.

:(

Most start on Thursday and run threw Sunday around my area.

This bird has to be at work by eight.

I hit the sales if I have a weekend off or want to start work a little later on Saturday or Sunday.

Laughing! I'm just frustrated and you guys aren't helping!!!

Maybe I should stop reading this thread for a while? ;)

But I'm happy for you guys.

You gotta stop; you never know what you'll find. A lot of times I walk through sales twice because I'll completely walk by good stuff on the first pass.
