Soon after returning to Maine, nearly two months ago, I heard radio advertisements for a large yard sale. On Saturday morning, I drove down to Scarborough to attend the second annual Maine's Ultimate Yard Sale.
A Woolrich Hunting Jacket. Fits like a Charm
Any Woolrich aficionados know when this label is from?
Love the Game Pocket.
This was my find of the day, a Money Clip/pocket knife made by an insurance company called Manufacture's Mutual.

Powderhouse Mountaineering was a short lived outwear company based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. They were popular in the seventies and eighties making 60/40 parkas and down jackets.
Made in the U.S.A!
Stanley Handyman Spring Joints Measuring Stick.
72 inches of American workmanship.
Cool little shoe form.
I couldn't say no for $1.
I love yard sales because you never know what your going to find. Before last Saturday I had no idea what Manufacture's Mutual or Powederhorn Industries was. In the end I spent a whopping 42 dollars US currency and walked away with an invaluable smile on my face.
