Browsing craigslist and found this sale near Vancouver and felt like I needed to share in case anyone was in the area!
I have no idea about prices but this many old tools in one place I would assume means lower prices.

Here is the link and pics

I really want to make it to this sale but I have a two week old at home so I likely won’t be able to.
Bummer!

Just a simple question folks. Why is a flea/tag sale already set up outside for a sale date of next Saturday? Might it be that the sale has happened a few times before? Maybe a few of those tools are already gone. jus’ sayin’!

Hey Mos – it’s a mere 25 hours away from us, I say we pack a thermos of coffee and hit the road. We could split the driving into 4 hour shifts. If we leave Friday morning at 0’dark thirty we should be there in plenty of time.
