    Good find at my local Goodwill

    I came across copy of Speer #9 reloading manual and a copy of Lyman 45th edition. I got both for $6 and change. They'll be a great addition to my reference library.

    I've always felt sad when that sort of thing ends up at Goodwill, more than likely when someone's estate was finished up.
    And the heirs either didn't want it, or didn't even realize what they were putting in the 'donate' bin.

    But at the same time,
    I like seeing that sort of stuff get back out in circulation, and bought by someone who wants and appreciates them.

    OK People. Enough of this idle chit-chat.

    Yesterday at Restore, checking for pewter I found 8 glass bottomed mugs, a Jefferson cup and a goblet. They totaled just short of 7 lbs. Sometimes you find nothing, or an item overpriced-for alloying purposes, but occasionally there is a score to be had.

    It's a tempting offer but I'll pass.

    I'll be checking out other Goodwills from time to time. Hopefully I can find something else I can use

    My best score so far was a glass bottom mug for Ten cents. Second best has been fifty cents each, third per piece was a 12 mugs lot for $8 . They are all engraved with events long past of people now divorced or dead. One had a nice pike ( fish ) for a handle. others are plain. all were cheap.

    Millions and millions of American shooters and sportsmen got up, went to work, contributed to society in useful and meaningful ways all over the nation and shot no one today! How do they controll themselves?? Experts Baffled....

    My local second-hand stores usually don't have much and I've never seen anything shooting related. I've got some second-hand sports equipment for my kids and the occasional clothing item, but not much else. My best find so far was not shooting related - a leg lamp, exactly like the one in the movie A Christmas Story. Our local Goodwill is a mess, pretty dirty and disorganized. A couple of the other stores are much better run.

    On the other side, I just dropped off a nice pair of boots to the Good Will today.

    Good find at my local Goodwill

    I found a small hand held steam cleaner bran spanking new in the bag with all attachments for a whopping $3!
    Just the ticket for cleaning up the muzzleloader!
