    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!

    Before ISU there was ISC. That is an awesome find.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Later in life my mother liked to browse garage sales. She would occasionally get an ISU item. Most were junk but I do like the old Cy figurine (see picture) she found for me. It’s sort of vintage kitsch.

    About 10 years ago I got a book of ISC songs (music and lyrics) from the 1920's at a garage sale. Had a picture of a guy and coed on the front with an ISC pennant, I believe.

    Can't remember if I still have it or not.

    Well, it is not from a garage sale, but my wife found an autographed Seneca Wallace jersey at Goodwill for a few bucks...she didn't even know it was signed until she had it on at a tailgate and someone commented about it. It now is framed in my basement!
