About the first day of spring and all the yard sales are going on here. Long term survival in my mind requires the use of non powered hand tools. Yesterday I was at one where the grand kids were cleaning out "Pops" old garage and I scored the following items. These items were all in good condition, usually made in USA, with good handles, sharp and often coated with oil to prevent rusting. 2 heavy duty spading forks at $2 each, 2 shuffle hoes, 2 heavy hoes, 2 rakes, 1 pitch fork, one manure fork, one hay fork, 1 garden weasel , 1 old time hand cultivator, 1 sythe handle and 2 blades, all for $2 each. 2 old style good sand shovels, 1 square shovel, 1 railroad pick, 1 grub hoe . 1 good axe, all for $5 each and they threw in a hand brace, box of hand bit augers, a hand drill, a couple of bow saw frames, some garden hoses etc just to get rid of them. All useful and excellent trade goods. They are now in my shed and I know that if I die, my kid will have a yard sale and sell them in a minute. If you were to buy them new, it would be in the $100s from Lehmans or china junk from Tractor Supply or Home Depot. They wanted $25 for a wood bow saw, $20 for a long auger bit with a handle, $100 for an old wood wheeled wheel barrow and such. If it would look good in the yard with flowers or hanging on the wall, it was priced high.
