    I got a 70's LED watch for a dollar at a flea market. Same flea market also got me Italian leather Goretex snow boots for $25, a Wilson leather jacket for $30, and an 80's Japanese slipjoint for $3.

    Online? Maxped PFII for like $65~ish from LAPG, Quark Mini AA2 for under $30 from 4Sevens, and a bunch of Nalgene bottles for half off. I love the "Good Deals" section here!

    I though about starting a topic like this...I'll resurrect this one instead.

    Yesterday I was shopping in a local overstock store. Shelf full of Guyot Designs stainless water bottles. I have been wanting one of these for awhile, by the time I went to buy one they were nowhere to be found. It's the smaller ones that fit in a cupholder, maybe 36 oz? still wide mouth and only $5.99 each!!

    A couple years ago I was in the SC surplus warehouse. Bag of four used leatherman micros for fifteen dollars. Cleaned them up, sharpened them, and gave all but one away.

    Not quite EDC, but a place to keep att the stuff? Anyway, at a yard sale, I found this large Halliburton Case. Folks did not have the combination. Cost: $1.00. Starting at 0-0-0, it took most of an afternoon to run through the possible combinations. Much as I liked it, I finally figured that I really did not have any use for it, so I sold it on eBay for a bit more than I paid for it.

    I recently bought a bunch of old logo FourSevens lights at around $30-40 a piece, and free shipping. Ended up buying 5 total!

    Oh let's see...off the top of my head:

    Bought a Spyderco Poliwog at a gun show last year and ended up making nearly a $100 profit when it came time to sell it.
    I bought my range bag from LA Police Gear for $10 and the shipping was actually more than the bag itself.
    I recently found a 1930's unfired Zippo on a table at a flea market for $10. Needs some minor TLC due to the age but other than that it is unused.

    My wife keeps getting bargains at a local outdoor store.
    She got a 150$ softshell for $50
    A shirt of mine was tagged at $79 and scanned up at $25 (so I went back and grabbed the rest off the shelf in my size)
