I've found a few nice optical toys at yard sales. Even if I don't see anything set-out, I ask if they have any old binoculars, cameras, or telescopes they might want to get rid of. Half the time, they run back in the house and come out with something. Never hurts to ask.

you can find great vintage perfumes and tons of great stuff sometimes. We had "Meth-head Patty" in the Park when I moved in..I was quick to get her OUT...she decided she was going to have a yard sale. We do not allow them in the Park so she waited till Jadmom and I went away for the weekend and she dragged an old tire out by the entrance to our Park,rigged some jacked up sign which is giant letters said "ESTATE SALE". LOLOLOLOL Wish I had that photo.... I informed her we were selling the trailer. She was in a rental ,thank GOD . I told her she had 30 days...she managed to stay for 3 months unpaid buy I was very very happy when I watched the cops escort that beeeyatch out and I was taking photos of her "friends" helping her move and they all put jackets over their heads. I guess they were all having a bad hair day.:)
This made my day. I can so picture this.

Good Will and Resale shops are fun. One time I moved I broke a lot of glass in picture frames. All different shapes and sizes. So I just bought the framed pictures and cannibalize them for the glass.
I did find a cool watercolor of a fish that looks great in my bathroom ( when you live on a lake you have to give a nod to where you live ).
Cool telescope !
