This is why I wander around on Friday and Saturday mornings. My youngest son goes along and does the recon. I drop him off so I don't have to park. He looks for the goodies and he has a great eye for non-Walmart related bike items.
The kids came home yesterday with a fendered Bridgestone 500. They were out riding and they noticed the bike at a sale nearby. My oldest told the owner he'd take it. He kept his hand on the bike for twenty minutes while our youngest son came home to raid the family bike fund. No authorization necessary for a purchase of that size or quality.
The bike just happens to be my size, is a beautiful silver in color, and has a super nice set of fenders. Looks like Berthouds! She needs all of the usual maintenance items, but who cares.
This does not compare to your haul in any way, but it can be great fun to find deals when you least expect it.
Oh, the kids also talked me into a very nice Celestron refractor telescope that was at the same sale. $50 with tripod, case, and additional eyepieces/lenses.
