Flea Market/Garage Sale Finds

Recommended Posts

Lets start a topic on this. It has to be something found that you bought and was a good deal. It can be no more than a 2 week old purchase. I love the old stories that we all tell, but lets keep the "I was at the flea market/garage sale 27 years ago and came across....." type stuff out. lol. It must be survivalish related, not a ceramic flower pot you found for an aunt. I'm talking backpacks, bags, fuel lamps, knives, guns, old army stuff, optics, camo clothing, etc. Things that you bought with intent to use at some point. Include pics too if possible. I'm headed out this week to see what I can come up with.

I found a foldable toilet new in box for 25 cents. its the kind that fold out like a stool or tv tray and it has a toilet seat on it and you can either put a pail under it or a bag, in a pinch. in the same place i got some battery operated lanterns and camp cooking supplies like a mess kit and griddle. still need to get fuel and try out the camp stove, but i got that for free so im not put out if it dont work. i had a tent given to me, but its only a 2 person tent so i will need to upgrade that

I found a World War 2 Army mess kit, I paid 9 bucks for it, probably paid too much for it, but it has alot of character.
Maybe you did but I haven't found a store around me that carries these, at least good ones not the new camping gear kind, and if you were to order it online you would probably pay the same if not more. I don't have any flea markets around me so I will keep you updated once the garage sale seaons gears up here, I like looking for things that can be used or modified for survival use and not specifically meant for that purpose.

MSR WhisperLite Stove (one of the original models), with 11 oz fuel bottle, manual, pump, windscreen, stuff sack, repair kit, and spoon-wrench. Got it off Craigslist. Paid for it? Too much to tell you, but little enough that I'm happy. Met really neat LEO type guy who showed us his tricked out rifle. Scared the sheet out of me cause the rifle weighed more than I'm used to. (Delicate flower of the South and all that.) Note to self: go back to lifting weights. post-1773-1385149785636_thumb.jpg

I picked this up the other day from the flea market. It's a Red Rock Medics bag. It was new. I got it for 10 bucks. I figure it'll work good for a med kit at home or on the road. It's 12 inches long by 10 inches wide by 10ish tall I think. It's got like 8 internal pockets/sleeves along the inner walls. I'm going to try to re-take some pics with my digital camera as my phone camera obviously sucks.

Weedeater drove with me around to some garage sales today. We had a blast. We also found a Hoyt/Easton "Buck" 28"-30" draw compound bow. Although it's ancient by sporting standards, probably dating back to the 80's, it appears to be in prime condition, and has an attached quiver. I had wanted a bow to learn the sport, but one I could re-string myself. I realize that would be a recurve or a longbow, but this will do for now. The poundage is a bit much for me, but will give me something to work my upper body strength. Total Cost: $10.

 

I also bought two Spyder paintball guns. The need a little refurbish, some paintballs and canisters and they will be good to go. I figure it will be good practice for hand/eye co-ordination without wasting ammo. Not to mention fun. And in a pinch, a ping with a paintball might warn off a hungry neighbor... $10 for the pair. P.S. Anybody got a 9" Spyder barrel for sale? ;) Oops, picture is upside down and backwards.

Got a good deal at Walmart today. Good deals can pop up anywhere. It was in a clearance basket and when it didn't ring up I negotiated a price with the manager. 6dollars for a nice Stanley Multi tool. It is Stainless and a lot like a basic Leatherman with saw, knife, pliers, screwdrivers and such. Nice feel to it.

Well done Danm!!!! I picked up a 1lb Coleman fuel cylinder full for $2.50 and a Turner what looks like an LP5 for $10 the other day. Today, I went to a flea market near work that I had forgot was there and picked up an oil lamp full of oil and a good amount of wick left for $16. They had a lot of good stuff there so I'll definitely swing back by tomorrow on my lunch break.
