Yeah, you did very well for $80. Don’s links will be very helpful, but if yo get stuck, just ask here and at least one of us will be very happy to help you. As for a low angle block, don’t rush out and get one just to have it. They are pretty common at garage/moving/estate sales and, if you’re patient, you can grab one for $10 or less. As for the rabbeting plane, I would suggest buying one from someone you know rather than ebay. I suspect Don can sell you one and I know I can :) Buying one that’s ready to work for $30-$40 might turn out to be less expensive than getting one for $20 plus shipping if its missing pieces or needs lots of work. Congrats!! on the haul and welcome to one of the slipperiest slopes there is.
