Tag sale? Like an estate sale? Yes, we do. Alas, the tools (particularly power tools) always seem optimistically priced, although they always seem to sell at the higher prices before second day discounts set in. And I have gotten a few tiki-related items at fantastic prices over the years. Those are super-rare, but because there's not much tiki/tropical in Central Texas, they don't know what it is. I got a big piece of Samoan tapa for $1 once. A filthy, 14" glass fish float (with kanji mark) for $20 that'd sat out in a garden for 30 years. Those are my biggest scores, but more common finds are Hawaiian souvenirs, monkeypod mugs or Coco Joe's figures. Even those are few and far between. The chisels and gouges I see are almost always rusty and I can't justify the effort it'd take to clean them up, not at the estate sale prices I see.
