In the Corner with Dan Hughes
099-120607 In the Treasure Corner - A Minelab Sovereign for Fifteen Dollars

I was just five minutes late for the Buy of the Century. 

At a Goodwill store in Plainfield, Indiana, I saw a treasure hunting newbie buy a like-new Minelab Sovereign metal detector for $14.98.

I was luckier a few years ago, when I scored a Teknetics Coin Computer detector for ten dollars at a garage sale.  This is a machine that sold new for $749.95 (I found an old ad after I recorded the podcast).

In this podcast, I talk about thrift shops, yard sales, and flea market finds.

What great finds have you made at thrift shops and yard sales?  I'd love to hear from you!

  • My greatest yard sale find ever -- partially because of the great value and partially because it jumpstarted my metal detecting -- was when I found two White's XLT in perfect working condition for $50 total.
