    Whats the most unique thing you have picked up at a yard sale, or auction? I bought a five layer tackle box full of bass and pike gear at a DEA auction, for 12 bucks.

    The best bargain I found was on a local christian radio auction.They have it every year to help pay for the airtime.Someone donated an old winchester model 70 in .270 caliber.I bought it for 250.00 without even looking at it.It turned out to be a original pre 64 made in 1959 with the unaltered stock.

    When I was a kid, my dad picked up a broken wwII bazooka at the flea market. Boy did I have fun with that:smile2:
