I picked up a really neat piece today, a Lufkin METAL folding 48" measurer. I've seen lots of wood, but never a metal one. ebay didn't have any. It was a buck. It will look good on my growing wall of old tools.
I went to another, and they had a piece of black pottery. The gal said it was her grandfather's. It looked like a Maria Ildelfonso piece, and I was interested. She said take it, as I guess it has some bad juju associated with it. I also got a really neat leather skin kachina (indian dancer) wall plaque, also free. Then I saw a mirror with a metal frame around it with squares of cowboy themed things in each 6 x 6 square. I'm going to cut out some new things, and put it together for my grandsons for their new cowboy room.
Total cost, $5. I have contacted medicine man galleries and sent pictures of the pot, and will advise when I find its value. Some of these go for up to $10,000, but I'd be happy just to find that it is authentic Maria Ildelfonso. It will look good in my expanding collection.
Got a pancake compressor on cart, a car buffer to make a billiard ball polisher, some lab glass for yeast cultures for my beer brewing, and several dollar and two items. Oh, don't forget a really nice staple puller that has to go for $4 retail for a quarter.
I got some J trim to complete my carport sides for $11 per 12' piece, and locally, they wanted $17 per copy "on a deal if I bought ten". Yeah, right.
Las Vegas was full of yard sales, and condo associations and HOA's had them where there was a yard sale or three on nearly every street. Quality of goods was medium to medium high.
One small welding/cutting rig, but off brand, and all I need is a small head, Victor 100, IIRC.
