    Wife and I went to an auction. They had everything from fake house plants to tools to fishing boats.

    DAMN were there deals to be had. A $2400 area rug went for $400. Teak and wraught iron queen bed (brand new) went for $100. Not alot of tools but they had some. Mostly older stuff. Brand new sectional leather couch (Huge) went for $1300. That thing was worth over $5k easy.

    We picked up an antique 7 drawer dresser from the late 1800's for $350. Bought a few end tables and a dining room table ($12). Wife picked up a ton of misc boxes of stuff. Even got 3 boxes of movies (about 30 videos) for $7.

    Old toys, guns...you name it, they had about everything. It was awesome. It's a monthly thing. They had about 900 items and lots of boxed lots.

    We even took the kids back later in the day so they could see what a real Ebay is like.

    Good times. We're definately going back.

    I picked up a hi lift jack for 10 bucks a couple weeks ago at a yard sale.
