Default Trying to get lucky

So the wife tells me about a estate sale on Sat. morning ,so off we went this morning early.The man selling stuff is about 70-75 years old and said alot of the old sawmill stuff belonged to his Father. I found an old Sears & Roebuck Craftsman scroll saw on a base from the 40's and also a iron top router table with all attatchments both still working, I was excited then aksed about a price and was told NOT FOR SALE.... I asked about 7 items and each one was NOT FOR SALE....My Wife did buy some jewerlry and will be getting to go back for a small private showing of stuff later in the week....I told her when She goes back ask again about the items I showed her....Maybe I will get lucky then

You sound like you have my luck. I've stopped going to estate sales because of this exact reason. My pet peeve, if you don't want to sell something it shouldn't be at the sale. Or at the very least a sign posted on each item that it's not for sale.

Good Luck!

Yes Jim I agree, why have tools all over shelves in a big shed with just the rusted frozen junk for sale, even some of the junk was not for sale .....

When I saw the heading of this thread I had to do a quick check to make sure that I was on the right forum!
