In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Jun 7, 2012

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.
