Awesome Thrift Store find!

Recommended Posts

nameiztaken    118

Went to the thrift store today expecting to find the usual Shakespear Spincast from 1990, but came across this, only $15! :o

 

Mint condition, buttery smooth, I honestly dont think it has even been spooled! Preserved just for me :) 

What have you guys found at thrift stores/yard sales?

Nice! I have been amazed what I can find in pawn shops and flea markets down here. That reel will serve you well.

Holy smokes, great buy! Kinda makes you wonder how long the former owner looked for it around the house before he gave up on ever finding it...

nice find, best thing I've ever found at a yard sale was a mint condition Frabil 4-man ice shanty for 50$. For some reason I didn't buy it and still regret it...

How much do they go for?

 

It is an older reel, but in that condition I'd be willing to pay $125.

Had to be some kind of estate deal, inherited by a non-fisherman.

Outstanding!

Bet his ex sold it or gave it away. I had an antique clock that I think my ex sold. She claimed she never saw it, but it was at the house until she moved all her junk out. It was maybe worth $600. She probably yard sold it for $20. :(

If I died tomorrow, whenever my wife had the garage sale all my St Croix elites would be $20.  She has no point of reference.
