    Garage Sale Finds

    Garage Sales aren't so bad after all.

    Found this old thing looking for a new home in MN. Not in mint condition but I think I can find a home for it in the new man-cave.


    That got me thinking. What kind of cool things have you found at a garage/rummage sale?

    That's the coolest logo I have ever seen Iowa State have. Nice find!

    Re: Garage Sale Finds

    A few years ago my mom bought me this "Walking CY" bath rug at a garage sale.

    My mom got my younger brother a Iowa State Golf bag. Nothing fancy, no pockets on it. She found it at a garage sale.

    I like going to garage sales to try and find old ISU stuff.

    Re: Garage Sale Finds

    not really ISU related, but I bought a dusty old bike with the right brand on it at an Ames garage sale for $5 and was able to get $75 trade-in value for it that afternoon at a shop in Ankeny.

    my one good garage sale find in 32 yrs of frequenting them ... but I still like em nonetheless

    Re: Garage Sale Finds

    Found an old Iowa State beer at a garage sale about 10 years ago. About the only cool or unique ISU thing I've found.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    Re: Garage Sale Finds

    I have a very old Cy booze decanter somewhere. Probably not worth anything, but it is unique.

    I love those old Bartels & James knock off commercials Johnny used to do. I was a kid, but I still remember them.
