With the 2012 Super Garage Sale looming a week from Saturday, what was your best garage sale find ever?

I lived in England for a year, over that way they take they're garage sale-ing pretty seriously. Only they sell their "junk" from their car and call it a Car Boot Sale. You pay for a parking space, which doubles as your booth. It's all the same, it's still one man's junk and another's treasure. It was at one of these that I was fortunate enough to stumble upon a glorious ceramic Sensei of sorts. It seemed like horrible luck to get rid of such a mentor, and great fortune to find one. This gem, which is still proudly on display at my house, was my best garage sale find ever. What was yours?

It's not too late to sign up for a 10x10 booth (or more than one) at the Super Garage Sale. Or you can scour all the gems in the valley for a small fee. CLICK HERE for more info.
