So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price!
So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it. I also got a couple of decent rasps, a USA made 4” C clamp, 2 halfway decent (and in unused condition!) old hand mitre saws, a nice pair of fishing pliers, a brand new set of 3 Craftsman easy outs, and a brand new set of yellow Wiss tin snips. Every day stuff, nothing fancy or rare but hey for $6.00 for the lot how could I go wrong! Yes ladies and gentlemen $6.00 dollars American. $6 beaner renos, $6 little smackeroos! Pretty damn good grab if I don’t hurt my shoulder patting my own back….
BUT….. The buy of the day….. A Husqvarna 455 Rancher chain saw 22” bar. And it started on the first pull. Guess how much??? Wait for it….. TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS!! Are you kidding me!!! I almost fell over myself when the young lady said $25 bucks. She actually said, (and I quote) “is $25 dollars ok, honey bun?” Not only did I get it for $25 bucks but I got called “Honey Bun” by a cute 20 something year old! How could my day get any better….. Hahah. It’s been a long time since my chubby, balding, tattooed, wrinkly self has been called a term of endearment like that, Hahahahaha…. Don’t be hating! You guys are jealous. Here is a picture of the saw and if my wife doesn’t catch me I’ll post a picture of the young lady in my next blog. I know, I suck!!
Get out there and find some tools! They are out there, yard sale season is coming, pawn shops will take cash offers, Craigslist is 1/2 the price of eBay and I’m keeping the name of my favorite store a secret!
